Voted Tucson's " 2014 Consumers' Pick " for Italian Cuisine! Large and open restaurant area--pleasant décor. Reception and service were friendly and informative. We started with the meatball&ricotta flatbread---very tasty. Zuppe---Italian fennel sausage and lentil soup---excellent! Bruschetta Siciliana--very good. Arancini--risotto with Italian fennel sausage, red bell peppers, romano cheese, house marinera style. House red and white were above average. Happy... More

We were so disappointed with our meal here recently. We asked for it all to come at the same time, it did not. We ordered calamari appetizer, it was rubbery. The Caesar salad was nothing to brag about and the crab cakes did not taste fresh. Other than that, the service was so, so and they weren't very busy. They... More

Carrabba's is consistently good around the country and this visit was not a disappointment. We love to sit at the kitchen counter and watch the prepare the meals. This time we shared a rice ball app and then wife had Chicken La Scala and I had Chicken Parm. The cannoli dessert that we took home was also very good, but... More

We went on a Sunday evening and ordered their special appetizers crab cake and what was delivered were 2 small burned patties of indiscernible taste. Our other entrée Spaghetti with meat balls also had dried hard meatballs with no taste but the sauce was spicy to cover it. Not our kind of Italan

I am not a fan of Carrabbas. Been there multiple times now and tried different meal selections. Too salty for my taste. With so many nice family owned Italian options nearby like Michelangelo's, Amarsi, Tavolino's, and Vivace, no reason to go here again.

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!
