Try the Chicken Marsala

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.

We love carrabbas. They are attentive and courteous. If there is a problem, they always fix it. Would recommend to everyone.

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

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
