My wife and I enjoy taking our kids and family to Carrabbas in Avondale. Our last server was Moby and he was friendly and very attentive. I always have the lasagna, plenty of cheese and sauce.

We were introduced to Carrabba's by friends in Arizona. Food is authentic Italian with a nice variety of seafood, chicken and pasta on the menu. Try the Chicken Marsala - your choice of full or half order.

Had the Italian salad for starters and then the Lobster Ravioli for my main course. WOW, great food and service, waitress kept us stocked on drinks and bread, always checking to see if everything was ok. Had a nice quiet table for five people and there were no complaints from anyone.

Fast service, friendly staff, crowded and in need of renovation in my opinion. Menus is typical and price is fair. Portions are LARGE so make sure you ask before you order.

We started dinner with a flat bread that had goat cheese with meat balls. It was delicious. I ordered the chicken chicken sampler witch includes three different types of chicken and a pasta side I had the fettuccine alfredo. This is my favorite dish from carrabas now :-) It is delicious. My husband had a fettuccine in a vodka sauce.... More

FYI...We have been to several Carrabba's in both AZ and FL. Always good experiences. This visit (party of four) was a terrible experience. Server, Ally, was courteous but not too friendly. Wine was overpriced. 4 meals and two had to be sent back to the kitchen. One of the returned meals (Veal Marsala) had to be returned a 2nd time.... More
