Good Food Great Service

We are a family of 4 with 2 teenagers. We hadn't been here in years because we weren't thrilled the last time we ate here. I'm glad we tried it again. Food is prepared fresh to order so you can customize your food however you like. They have Gluten Free options which is great for my husband... read more

Best calamari in the valley. All the food so far has been great. Need to arrive early as it is very popular and parking can be a hassle. Enjoy the food.

Food was great and wait time to be seated not bad, about 20 mins, but that was in the middle of the week. You can expect a long wait on weekends. Once we got in the menu selections were very good. I picked the Lobster Ravioli and it was a good choice, I loved it. Staff is alert and courteous.... More

The food at Carrabba's was good, but service was even better. Our server was friendly, polite and engaging. He checked on us frequently (not incessantly) to refill drinks. The restaurant has a nice, newly refreshed atmosphere, and is a pleasant place to dine. When in Allentown, we'll go back.

When you first walk in, you immediately notice the atmosphere. Nice dim lighting really set the mood for dinner. Our waitress was excellent, she was very attentive and always made sure we had refills on our drinks. The food was some of the best I've ever had. If you're in the area, check it out!

During our staff in Allentown we ate at Carrabba's with our three small grandchildren and daughters. The staff was very attentive and gave the kids coloring mats and also brought out dough for them to mold into shapes and baked them for them to take home. Although it's a chain restaurant the food is decent and they sealed our unfinished... More

I really like the pork chop marsala meal, chops were moist and done to perfection. Of course we cannot forget about the lentil and sausage soup, which is wonderful. Suzy my server was excellent, she is all about customer service. Suzy regularly checks on her customer making sure you have the necessary condiments and spirits to go with the meal.... More
