Adult portion size not much. Appetizers are small.but tasty. Love the ambience. My spouse was vegeterian . not much of a... read more

My extended family of 10 had made reservations at Carrabba's for 6:30pm, and we didn't get our table until past 7pm. We had hungry toddlers and children with us, and it was my father's birthday. We have a habit of going to Carrabba's Italian Grill for special occasions because the food is always delicious, perfectly cooked to order, and USUALLY... More

Ambiance standard chain decor. Service was fine. Food was below expectation. Salad was marginal, basically slightly wilted lettuce with dressing. Pasta was Okay but cold. All was edible, but steak was cheap cut, chicken was the kind one sees at Sams club in a huge bag, pre-breaded in the freezer. It's food, look elsewhere for dining.

We took our sons to Carrabba's for a late lunch this past weekend. There were very few customers in the restaurant and yet, we had to wait to be seated. I went to wash my hands before ordering and the restroom was so nasty that I asked to speak with the manager. I told him that I love Carrabba's and... More

My boyfriend and I dined at Carrabba's Saturday Evening (12/5) as it was my only request for my birthday. I have been to Carrabba's at least fifty times over the past 8 years, all over Florida and across the US. We frequent the location in Gainesville several times yearly as it is our favorite place to celebrate occasions. I have... More

it was the first time I have ever eaten there. my husband wanted to try it so we did. I had the steak and ordered it mediam, and it was well done. they do not have baked potatos which I think every restaurant should have if they serve steak. I was not impressed with this place, and will not go... More

We noticed the Carrabba's last weekend after we had finished stocking our Asian supplies at our favorite Asian market. There's nothing like shopping for food to make you really hungry. We were very delightfully surprised to have such a wonderful lunch at a very reasonable price. Both of us had the lunch combo of 1/2 a sandwich and soup. I... More

A couple of friends, my wife and I went for dinner to this place (we are not locals). I ordered a prosciutto+arugula pizza. When it came, the pizza did not have any visible prosciutto, so I asked the waitress about it. She said it was underneath the dough, and left right away. Of course, there was no prosciutto and, had... More

My favorite place to eat in town! Filet Bryan is always great and Lobster Ravioli out of this world! I don't care for lobster but in this dish it is fantastic
