So good we reordered!

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... read 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

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... More

sunday night place is slammed at 5 pm, our table for 12 was ready. Great service, can't say enough by our 2 guy team. Timing was perfect, food came out , tasty and hot. Hostess was exceptional as I could watch her handle a 150% crowd . We had a variety of apps and entrees all excellent. Managing partner Ryan... More

Went for dinner the night before a volleyball tournament to load up on carbs. We arrived around 6:00 on a Friday night and had to wait about 15 minutes for a table. The table we were assigned was in the back corner of the restaurant and had very poor lighting. I had to lend my cell phone flashlight to a... More

The restaurant was very crowded when our party of four arrived around 6:25 PM and we had a half hour wait. This wait time was fast when compared to the wait time for the food service which was unusually slow for the restaurant. I attribute the slow service to the large crowd at the restaurant. Our server was very attentive.... More

The meal started with a waitress that was rather rough on the edges, proper etiquette is expected from any server. She spoke short reached constantly over you to grad things and seemed like she had something better she wanted to do. The food server made up for the waitress, she was nice smiled and wanted to be there. The pasta... More

This was our first time to Carrabba's, and we really enjoyed it. The only thing that let it down was we felt a little rushed. The soups were excellent and the mains also. The server was very helpful with the menu. The lighting could have been better. Would I go again maybe.
