The atmosphere was good, though it is not the same. This modern look doesn't appeal too much to me but the food continues to be GREAT. Entrees were of plentiful and very tasty. Our server was very attentive and we were not rushed at all. Menu has a good variety and reasonably priced.

We stopped here on our last evening in Florida, seating was very quick and the service was very good. We all ordered the Sirloin with Lobster Ravioli and it was delicious! The steak was a 6 ounce filet and we ordered a house salad and garlic mashed potatoes. I believe this was something like $12-13.00 which we thought was quite... More

This was our first visit and an enjoyable experience. It was not real busy when we arrived but soon filled up. We were seated not far from the serving area and were impressed that someone was checking each plate before it went out. Service was average, for example we were not offered bread and dipping oil and had to ask... More

Anytime we want Italian for dinner....there's no doubt that it's Carrabba's. Don't go when you're extremely hungry though. You will Always wait at least a half hour for seating. 30-60 minutes on the weekend nights. (F-Sat-Sun). There isn't anything on the menu that isn't worth trying. My husbands choice Every time...the Pasta Weezie.

The sirloin steak we had was very tender and prepared perfectly. Service was great! Lighting was a dark and it was hard to see the menu. Our son saw someone using a flashlight.
