While the food quality is always pretty consistent at Carrabba's the portions seem to be getting smaller and smaller. I get the economy dictates this some but if you want to keep your patrons you need to not hit them in the wallet or stomach every time.

Started with a shared caprese salad, mmm so fresh and perfect. My partner had the lobster ravioli and I the pollo la scala, one of their current specials with green beans. Wish I could have had a bucket of those green beans, they were so yummy and the chicken and ravioli was superb. Can't beat the taste, service and price!... More

Carrabba's in Brandon is just what you would expect from this chain. The food is fresh and the staff very attentive. You may have a wait on some evenings but you could choose a seat in the bar area for quicker service.

This is the best Carrabba's around. We frequent this location once a month at least. Always friendly staff. The manager comes to the table to make sure the meal is cooked to your liking. If you don't like it, send it back. Restaurant has great ambiance. Never had less than a stellar meal here.

Great place for lunch. The hostess and waitstaff were extremely accommodating in seating us since we had an infant and a 1 year old with us. We wanted to be out of the way of other dinners so the children wouldn't bother them. Food was excellent and served quickly despite the large lunch crowd.

We stopped for dinner on a Sunday evening. This place was very busy. We had to wait for a table about 30 minutes. It was worth the wait. Both the service and food were great! We were pleased with the dinner so we returned for lunch. Food was good and service was good too again.

This is your typical Carrabba's with a very nice bar & dining area. They seem to do a very nice business, and the food was very good. The staff was also very pleasant & made the visit very pleasant.

Like that Italian homy atmosphere with fire reaching a ceiling at times, great food and friendly service. Rather crowdy and loud inside so not for quiet romantic dinner for 2.

We joined the Amici Club for this location and had the pleasure of being invited to a Tasting. It was an awesome experience and I would definitely recommend it to everyone. The food was fresh, flavors were awesome, service was great - just an all-around great experience.
