I have fortunate to live but a few miles form this outstanding eatery. The atmosphere is Italian, the smells are Italian, the food is cooked Italian like my father use to cook for us on Sunday. You will not be disappointed.

After our Monday Movie night we decided to go to Carrabba's for a quick dinner. To our delight we noticed they had a 3 course Monday dinner special, ranging from 12 to 18 bucks. We selected the Shrimp Diablo as our appetizer and when the appetizer arrived I was completely shocked because it did not look like anything I have... More

I went there last night to have dinner with a friend and catch up who I have not seen in a year. We sat at the bar and had drinks and dinner. When we got done we asked the bartender if we could go outside she said yes the only table out there was a 6 top. The hostess 3... More

I recently held a large dinner party at Carrabba's, it was about 30 people. I used their call ahead system a month in advance. Part of why I chose Carrabba's is that I wanted to keep costs down and was told from day 1 that they have a catering menu which is $11 - $14 per person. It sounded great... More

Always a good visit. The meal, atmosphere and presentations were all outstanding. This chain restaurant did not have the feel of a franchise. Thank you Carrabbas for this month's coupons! We always come back!

Even though they were busy you would not have known it by the service and food we received. We continue to go back because they are consistent. Spaghetti and meatballs were yummy and their fettered menu was great. I never get past the soup and bread so I take the leftovers for lunch the next day.

We have always loved Carrabba's as one of the only chains which we felt was consistent, good quality, relaxed environment and good value. We look for them when we travel. We ate here with a friend on a Friday night and were rushed through. (Bar was full so no chance to linger over drink before or after meal.) House Salad... More

I was in Oro Valley for a half marathon and visited Carrabba's for a carb-loading dinner the night before. Everything was delicious. I ordered a linguini with shrimp and scallops in a tomato vodka cream sauce. It was great! Not the typical saucy, cheesy pasta dish. It came with salad and some great bread to dip in olive oil seasoned... More

We really enjoyed our meal here at Carrabba's. The service was EXCELLENT and the food very good. We liked the atmosphere better than at Olive Garden, however, we do like the endless salad and garlic bread at Olive Garden the most. The crusty bread was great with dipping oil mixed with herbs. The salad was good. I had the mini... More

The meal, service and atmosphere were all outstanding. This chain restaurant did not have the feel of a chain. The staff took pride in the operation. We had 4 adults and 2 teenagers and everyone found something to their liking on the menu at a reasonable cost. We will definitely return .
