quite an adventure

we'd been here once before and left unimpressed, see earlier review... anyway, we were inspired to return when a guy cleaning out our car found a Carrabba's gift card, which had $37 left on it... after a brief, efficient wait we were seated in a bright, busy room by one Tony... nice "small plates... read more

First time there since they remodeled. They now have a new limited menu which has eliminated a lot of favorites. I have to admit the steak was good, but loved their fried zucchini appetizer which is gone along with the calamari sauce and baked raviolis, among others. Will not return until these items are returned to menu.

Service was friendly, and accommodating to my large group for a birthday dinner. The food was delicious and portions were generous. Overall it wasn't a bad experience and I would go back, and recommend it to others.

Dark and dreary and in the very rear of a popular shopping plaza. !0 dollars for a glass of wine is crazy and food id bland and nothing special. Strawberry salad has lots of chicken but was smashed in a small bowl for 13.95- not so great, Good bread but soups were lukewarm and just Ok. Buffalo has many other... More

We have eaten at Carrabbas restaurants across USA for the past 15 years. Used to be a wonderful experience. Not the case last week in Buffalo NY. Our first impression was that the restautant wasn't very clean.Floors dirty entrance untidy. It wasn't busy but we were seated ( 2 guests ) at a table for 6 in the middle of... More

The taste of the mussel broth was delicious, especially with the bread supplied with the oil. But the mussels were definitely not PEI blue. They were small (but plentiful). The dish did not come with any bread for soaking up the broth, but I suppose if we had eaten all the bread supplied when we sat down they would have... More

I have been to Italy a number of times and I find this place to be very authentic. I love their menu. Entrees, desserts and drinks and all very good. I mean, for a chain, this place blows O------ G------ out of the water !!!

This was a good experience and offered consistent quality of food. It was very busy when we visited for dinner, and it is difficult to find - it's at the back of a shopping center.

For being a chain restaurant this place I'd say is the best. Their food is much better than other local "Italian" chains. I'd highly recommend it.
