"Designed by Lauren Helpern (the single, appropriately plastic-looking set), Eric Southern (the lighting) and Jessica Pabst (the mall-issue costumes), 'Pocatello' is very much of a conceptual whole, starting with the forlornly festive 'Famiglia Week' sign hung from the restaurant's rafters."
-- New York Times
"The family-dining franchise is never named, but as designed with pinpoint-accurate, bland hominess by Lauren Helpern, the faux-Tuscan decor will suggest Olive Garden even to people who've never been closer to one than the tv commercials."
-- Hollywood Reporter
"A great benefit to the show is the expansive and visually realistic set design of Lauren Helpern. It looks like a specific recreation of an Olive Garden style restaurant. Bright and cheery, with two levels of tables, chairs, and booths, wine bottles on display, travelogue photographs of Italy on the walls, lots of breadsticks, iceberg lettuce salads, and 'mozzarella things,' all add to the precise actuality."
