We have been to this Carrabbas multiple times. The reason? It is always OUTSTANDING! I rate restaurants based on three (3) qualities; food, service and ambiance. Both the quality and the flavor of the food is and has always been excellent. The possible problem that I run in to is what to eat that is not to high in calories.... More

Carrabba's is usually fantastic but I have realized that it depends on what you order. My husband had the Chicken Bryan which he said was wonderfully delicious but my Shrimp Linguine left a lot to be desired. The shrimp pieces were small and few but the linguine was way out of proportion and not very tasty. Being of Italian descent,... More

As usual we have experienced another great night here. Great fresh food and excellent service. This location is consistent and the managers seem to keep a watchful eye on the staff to make sure the food gets to the table quickly.

I believe this Carrabba's is better than one I'd been to in another city years ago. Better service, better layout and the menu was revved up a notch. It's usually very crowded from 6-8 so try either earlier or later. Good and imaginative Italian food and while priced a little high for a chain we've always had a good experience... More

We were there for an early dinner. Service was very attentive. We haven't been here in years and we had a coupon for $8.00 off a new menu item, so we decided to try it. Hubby ordered a happy hour beer and I had Shrimp and Scallop Linguine and he had the Italian Classics, which is Chicken Parm and Lasagna.... More

I ordered a premium Martini, paid north of 10 dollars for it. The bar tender diligently measured the specific amount if vodka. The glass wound up looking more empty than full. I was unsatisfied with the value. Their food is good, but almost11 dollars for a tiny cocktail is not ok. I will not be back.

Carrabba's - obviously a chain - is more crowded in winter months here by snowbirds. Service can be slow. As another reviewer said, the wine portions are good. I've been in others in different cities, most recently Phoenix, and found them to be marginally better; but this is one of the best in Hernando County, Florida.

We had our first time experience at Carrabba's in March. We went with another couple. The place was extreamly busy! The bread and the salad were very good but our main courses were only fair. Luke warm and we had to be elsewhere or we would have asked for the food to be re-heated. As it was, it took ages... More

Restaurant was very busy and therefore the waiter was very rushed and not friendly, etc. After coming to table every 4 minutes trying to take our order we finally were ready. I ordered Chicken Bryan Pizza. Trouble was, he asked if I wanted regular or large portion. I said the regular and mentioned the menu said $12.00.....When my order came... More
