Their happy hour menu was enough for a meal and the bowl of mussels was huge. We would definitely go there... read more

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.

Last week my husband and I enjoyed for the first time this now favorite restaurant. The food, service and ambience are all excellent.

My entree of salmon and creamy mashed potatoes was large... More
