I had the new combo, The Damian. It comes with Grilled Salmon and Spiedino di Mare. But, for a couple of dollars more, I got the Mahi Wulfe instead of the Salmon. Oh my, it was DELICIOUS! I was so thrilled with this combination. My husband had the Pollo Rosa Maria. He loves this dish too. The bread is unlimited.... More

This is the Carabba's I go to when in Gainesville and my recent visit is another reason why. 1) Location - just south of Archer Road on 34th street - it's about a mile off i75 and in a plaza with a bunch of other restaurants (now) 2) ALways pretty busy but I have never had trouble finding a seat...

This is a great place to enjoy Italian food and wines. The food is consistently good and tasty. Presentation is also a plus. The staff is friendly and professional.

Carrabba's is in my opinion one of the best of the chain restaurants. I always enjoy my dinners at whatever location that I go. The food was food, the service was fairly quick and friendly. The bread and the chicken marsala was really good. A good choice for a dependable decent meal.

We enjoyed our meal here. The calamari was a little over cooked but the rest was on point. Our waitress Gina C. was the BEST Waitress we've ever came across! Ask for her!

We started out several years ago going to Carraba's at least twice a week, not just in gainesville but all over the country. We noticed more and more as time went on they kept making changes!!! The changes at first we passed off as figuring out what worked. Always an hr or so wait on fri-sun evenings, now almost never... More

Went here for business. Ordered wood grilled chicken. Pasta was cold and portion was small with regards to chicken and pasta. Italian sampler was good but portion again not large. Caeser salad was good as was bread. Service was good.

We are regular at the car side carry out window. I love the online ordering where you can browse the menu and order and know its right.

I have never been to this particular Carrabba's, and haven't been to any Carrabba's in three to four years, so I was looking forward to it. This location has ornamental trees growing from its rooftops, which is interesting. The inside is very dimly lit. It was difficult to read the menus. Right off, I got bad vibes from our server....

The restaurant was undergoing a pretty massive renovation on the outside. The food was good and typical of Carrabas. I was disappointed in the service. Our server seemed to have friends in the bar area and spent much of her time mingling with them instead of making sure our needs were taken care of.
