Great Italian Food

Good family friendly chain restaurant serving Italian food. The menu has everything from pasta to steaks/chicken and a well-rounded kids' menu, plus lots of wine/alcohol options. The bread and olive oil/spices dip is very good, as is their lentil soup! Very good wines, too. While I still love... read more

We have visited the Carrabba's in Pensacola and have always had great experiences there. (I can't believe that I haven't posted a review here) This past Thursday (July 16), we were in Gainesville for a medical appointment. We chose to eat at Carrabba's because of name recognition and our previous experiences in Pensacola. We were not disappointed. We arrived at... More

Took my seat n for a great meal: his food came in right but mine had wrong sauce. Server apologized and took it back. Same plate came back with new sauce over scraped off chicken.

Way overpriced for what was ordered. Food was fair at best. The value was not in today's meal. $65.00 for maybe $25-30 value. Service was very slow.

We chose to eat here as we always enjoy eating at Carrabba's in our home location. The food here was just as excellent, along with the value. Has convinced us that their restaurants are wise choices for excellent food at reasonable prices, no matter what city.

If u like chain restaurants, this place is pretty good. Always a wait (my experience), there's at least plenty of on-site parking. The food is very good and consistently good. The menu is large and diverse. The place is always clean. Service has been excellent on each visit. The wait staff has always consisted of some very attractive college men... More

My favorite restaurant in the world. Literally. I've traveled all over the U.S., to Mexico and Europe and this is by far my favorite place. I've eaten at over ten different locations from here to Arizona and it the quality is the same everywhere. My favorite dish is the Filet Bryan but the Lobster Ravioli comes a close second. LOVE...

Friendly staff & great food with a well varied menu. They even have a pasta bar where you can watch the chiefs. Go early or make a reservation as the restaurant fill up quickly.

We hadn't been here for two+ years, but had a nice evening out. Like before, atmosphere was good and somewhat dark, the music was low key, overall it was not too noisy and we didn't have other diners too close to us. Food seems a bit pricey for rather small portions, but it was enough and very tasty. Server was... More
