Great Italian food at a reasonable price

The Carrabba's in Allentown is a warm and friendly place to eat when in town. They will work with you on a meal if you do not want a particular ingredient, don't make a fuss if you sit and talk for awhile and their food is good.

This was the first time I've eaten at a Carrabba's at the suggestion of my brother and his wife, who joined me. It was absolutely fantastic, appetizer of calamari was the best I've eaten, bottle of wine was not excessively priced, the steak was cooked as order and very thick. Not to forget to mention that it was wonderfully delicious.... More

Food was good, steak was a little tough but I guess that's what you get for a ordering a steak at an Italian restaurant. Staff was friendly enough, a good restaurant

This is one of my favorite Italian Restaurants, the food is awesome and I have so many favorites on their menu that it is hard to choose. A little known secret about Carrabba's is that if there is a dish you like that is not on the menu, Just order it. If they have the ingredients they will make it.... More

Great service and even better food. The Monday night 3 course dinner for $12 is steal. If there is a downside it would have to be that the tables are really close together. But the more tables the more they make and it adds to the rustic family dinner feel of the place.

We were traveling and got in a little late. I checked Trip Advisor APP for a restaurant close by the hotel. We found Carrabba's and it did not disappoint. Kiko was a superb waiter and the food was very good. It was not the best Italian I have ever had, but under the circumstances, it hit the spot just fine... More

This is one of my favorite Italian Restaurants, no I am not from the midwest, I grew up in the Italian section of a town that you were either Italian, Irish or Jewish, in other words ethnic. On any given day you could walk down the street and smell the pots of sauce on all the stoves (a smell of... More

I love when you can order your favorite classic dish and then try a new one right next to it. Smaller portions but then you don't have the risk of not liking something you are eating. Yesterday my husband and I both ordered the Classic Sirlion Marsala steak with the New creation Mahi Wulfe. Both were fabulous and having them... More

This is one of the closest Carrabba's from where we live, and it's three hours away. We take advantage of eating at Carrabba's while we are on trips, and so far it's really panned out. We were at Dorney Park in Allentown for the day and we knew that Carrabba;s was a five minutes away. This restaurant gets the same... More
