Open for lunch on weekends, but no lunch menu

My husband and I have been here a few times for dinner, but this was our first time for lunch. It's been our experience that restaurants have a separate lunch menu (which is usually more limited and less expensive than their dinner menu) but when I asked, the waitress said there's only one menu... read more

Can here for a date night and the food was horrible. Very Salty and the service was even worse. I had to send back my chicken Marsala because all I could taste was salt. I waited almost 35 minuets to get my knew one and it was way over cooked. The "Chef" here had a horrible attitude about sending back... More

We have seen ads for Carraba's but not having one anywhere near where we live we were anxious to try it while we stayed in Scottsdale. The food was very good and the service was great. Their happy hour menu was enough for a meal and the bowl of mussels was huge. We would definitely go there again....oh, we did!

My husband and I were in Arizona and, as always, stopped by Carrabbas one night for dinner. This is a must go to place for him, at least once when we are in the States. They do not take reservations, but do have a "call ahead" system where you can call and tell them when you will be arriving, and... More

We brought our cousin out to dinner and our server was one of the best!! Ken was extremely knowledgeable about the menu - took orders efficiently and our meals arrived timely and accurately. Good sized portions - I had enough left for lunch the next day.

Carrabba’s dishes out excellent pasta dinners. You can go with basic spaghetti, lasagna or ravioli selections and complement them with meat sauce, meat balls,chicken or shrimp. Or shoot the moon and get a pork, chicken, fish or veal entree. This time dining at the North Scottsdale Carrabba’s I went with the Mezzaluna (half-moon) ravioli. I’m not usually a ravioli person,...

My wife and I actually split a meal and still each had leftovers! The fettuccine weesie was pretty good and the service was timely. I can't eat onions and the waiter was careful not to put them in my salad, but I didn't like the house dressing. When the waiter brought a replacement salad it was loaded with onions, then... More

The service was over the to, as it was our first time at the restaurant, the server took the time to explain the menu. But the food was nothing special. I wish I could say it was good but it was really missing taste.

Carabbas has good food for the price. Not much on atmosphere or service but its a great afternoon lunch place to go to. They do have awesome soup and salads to choose from. Would go again for a lunchtime treat.
