National Breadstick Day 2019: How to Get Free and Cheap Breadsticks, Promo codes and More for Olive Garden, Little Caesars

National Breadstick Day is today, October 25. Here's how to get free and discounted breadsticks, or grissini, at your favorite restaurants like Olive Garden and Little Caesars. You can get free breadsticks using promo codes, signing up to e-clubs or by attending a generous restaurant that serves free breadsticks with every meal.

Breadsticks are known as "grissini" in Italian and they are a crucial part of any Italian meal. Grissini is important as they are used to mop up the sauce left in the bowl. This is called "Scarpetta", which translates to "little shoe". It is expected that you keep bread until the end of the meal to scoop up the rest of the sauce, so check out where you can get cheap and discounted breadsticks to ensure you never run out...

Restaurants where you can get free or discounted breadsticks include:

  • Olive Garden
  • Little Caesars
  • Fazoli's
  • Giordano's
