  Valentine's Day is upon us, and nothing says romance like
  sharing a plate of spaghetti.
  
  Olive Garden and Buca di Beppo are two of the most popular

  It's Valentine's Day, and nothing says classic romance like
  sharing a big plate of pasta.

  its own. For many this Friday, that special spaghetti dinner will
  be shared at their favorite Italian-ish chain restaurant.

  Olive Garden and Buca di Beppo are two of America's most popular
  Italian-American restaurant chains. So for this Valentine's Day,
  Business Insider sent me and Priscilla Zhu, retail's visual
  features fellow, out on a carb-filled mission to eat similar
  meals at both and find out which is better.

  Here's which pasta place is more worth your dough.
