We generally try not to eat at restaurants that we have at home. We like to try new places. We had to make an exception this past trip due to being a Friday night and being very busy in Bonita Springs in February. We were able to make reservations for a party of 8 and were seated after about 20... read more

We have always loved Carrabba's in Bonita Springs where we could depend on getting an above-average to excellent dinner. Not sure what has happened, but the quality has declined. We still like it, but you can't always count on getting a top-notch meal. I hate to say it, but we have had a few mediocre meals there this past spring.... More

Loved the Pollo Rosa Maria! A little noisy the evening we were there due to thunderstorm going on and lots of excitement!

Now one of the best of the chain . Knocked it out of the park tonight. Good size apps, salads , entrees. All perfectly done, perfect! That's all I need to say after being a Carrabbas fan

This enthusiastic patron loves Pollo Rosa Maria that was "stuffed" with fontina cheese & prosciutto served with mushrooms and basil lemon butter sauce, but couldn't be more shocked that Carrabbas has taken the easy way out by "laying" a piece of fontina cheese & prosciutto on top of the chicken breast. Gosh, even I can do that at home! Presentation... More

Who would think an Italian restaurant no longer had rigatoni pasta because some knucklehead in corporate said to eliminate that. Have eaten in Italian restaurants my whole life and Rigatoni marinara with Sausage is a staple. I will no longer go as often prices are going up portions are going down. Classic case study in how to ruin a great... More

This was our first time at a Carrabbas. Menu was large and daunting. Waiter made a suggestion of the Chicken Bryan and we both went for it. Marvelous choice and just the right amount. Manager brought over free dessert, chocolate heaven and free coffee to go with. Did not know it was a chain as we don't have in Canada.... More

We always like Carrabbas, but I believe this one is heads and shoulders above all the rest. We love Calamari, and it was so good we had to have more! It was so light it was almost transparent. The sauce was delish too. He had the lentil soup which was really good. I had a salad which certainly wasn't the... More

If you've eaten at a Carabba's before anywhere in the country then this is no different. Went with friends who love chain restaurants and wanted to use their gift cards. Food is just average. Servers are well trained and upbeat. There are so many Italian restaurants in the area that you should try before you try an Italian chain restaurant.... More
