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

I had the filet mignon with marsala I was impressed with the flavors as I love the taste foods from a wood fired grill. Great flavor. My husband had pork chops They were very large and flavorful. Our whole experience was very good food and service. I would recommend.

My wife and I had lunch on the patio, both the food and the service was great. We were welcomed as soon as we entered, when we asked to sit on the patio we were happy to hear no problem. The young man took us to the patio and we picked the table of our choice. We were immediately welcomed... More

On our first visit to Carrabba's Italian Grill in Avondale, we were truly overwhelmed by the attentiveness and quality of service received from our waitress. She was friendly, helpful, efficient, and accommodating. Every one of her recommendations, whether for food or wine, was excellent. When the food and wine was served, my wife and I, and my wife's sister who... More

We were taken here by family that gave it rave reviews. Unfortunately we didn't have a great experience. We were seated and our order was taken fairly quickly, we got bread. Then we got caught up in chatting. For an hour. We're really not sure what happened in the kitchen, but our order never got prepared. We also never heard... More
