We have stopped here twice after spring training games at Surprise Stadium (which is just a couple of minutes down the road). Both times, we enjoyed the food and the experience. Calamari appetizer was good (be hungry if you order the large size). We took advantage of the Wednesday wine specials, which were good. Try the sausage lentil soup. Pasta... More

Carrabbas is one of the busier restaurants at any given time...a testament to their good food. Steaks and spaghetti are both great (one of the best steaks in the area according to one in our party) and the wines seem to be better than average (price-wise). A restaurant that can accommodate a large group of people without huge notice or... More

I can't give this restaurant a good rating due to how incredibly inconstant they are in quality of food and service. We've eaten there twice on a weekend and the food is absolutely mediocre. You're probably wondering why we went back the second time, but we're snowbirds and 6 months away makes you forget the mediocrity. Then we were there... More

This is a rather expensive somewhat authentic Italian eatery with a menu that uses a lot of Italian language. I wish there were pictures of the menu items so I could figure out what they were offering. The food wasn't all that great. Next time I'll go to The Olive Garden where at least I can understand what to order.

Great food, Great Service, Good size portions, Little skimpy with the wine pours for the price. The grill is fairly busy most of the time so get there early or call ahead. No reservations.

Wife and I and another couple ate here on New Years Eve. Even with a packed house the food was great...and Ashley gave us First Class Service! Great experience.

Retired from Chicago and now living in Surprise, AZ we were looking for a great Italian Restaurant. Chicago afforded so many, but now............. How happy we were that we did not have to drive all the way to Scottsdale for a great Italian meal. Carrabbas filled the bill. Service is great, friendly and courteous. The food is so fresh and...
