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

Very busy restaurant. Waiter was very friendly. Food was good size portions and favourful. Tables are pretty crowded together and restaurant was pretty noisy but overall enjoyed our visit there

Our kids and their friends are in their early twenties, so IDs were coming out when they ordered drinks. They didn't ask for mine - LOL. Anyway, great good, wonderful bread and "dippings," and terrific service. They even served me something that used to be on the menu, isn't any longer, but was still delicious. Glad we decided to eat... More

Hadn't been to Carraba's in years and first time at this one. We called ahead and put ourselves on the wait list but when we arrived at 7:00 PM our table was ready. We were given water and menus right away and Cody greeted us soon after. Without apps, we a ordered our meals and drinks together. My wife ordered... More

The review will encompass two visits to tell the whole story. My wife and I generally try to eat at local restaurants and chef owned independent restaurants rather than chains. Living in Goodyear chains rule. We have been going to Carraba's for years, mostly due to the fact that our son works for one in Texas. Usually good reliable food.... More

We like sitting at either the pizza or,pasta bar instead of a regular table. Gets you a better view of the food prep and a good experience of the food prep. For a chain, the food and service are above par.

The place was super packed and the food was very mediocre. I had the shrimp and scallops for around $18. They were way too salty and super tiny. Another person in our party got sick later that night from how salty the food was. The "quartini's" of wine are a huge rip off. They charge a lot extra for them... More

We love coming here to just relax, enjoy a glass of wine and have great food that won't kill the budget. The bread is amazing!

Had never eaten in a Carrabba's before and so we were very surprised by the quality and the "made from scratch" taste of the food. We went early and it was a good thing. By normal diner hour many folks were waiting outside even though it was raining. The only negative is the parking lot. Not big enough and the... More

We love coming here, and enjoy the staff as they are the friendliest and helpful. But today we had a waiter named Ana very rude, specially when I asked her a question and walked away. We were left unattended for a while, enough time to bother another waiter which by the way was the nicest ever and wished we had... More
