A solid experience again

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... read more

said my wife when we received the check. We had ordered off the Monday Menu that offered three (3) fixed-price point menus of $12, $15 and $18. Each category had an appetizer OR dessert, salad OR soup and a main dish. We chose the $12 menus, a wise move. My appetizer, calamari, was a very generous portion and I remarked... More

We came into Carrabbas in Gainesville while in town for the night. We've been to Carrabbas before so knew what to expect. This Carrabbas however had to be the best one I've ever been to. Shaun K was our server and he was wonderful. Best service ever. Our spaghetti and extra sauce was the best ever!!! It was absolutely delicious.... More

My husband and I hit Carrabbas at least once a month, not so much that we're regulars but we do like to eat there. Never have we've been disappointed until tonight. To begin with our waitress was the bartender and I'm not sure that she was happy having table customers but don't take it out on us. I asked for... More

Good food and lots of it, but the drinks are very high priced. Nice place to take a date as place has atmosphere.

Great food and prices. Wonderful family environment and always friendly service. Wine selection can be better, though.

Came for dinner. You know what you are getting if been here. Service was decent. Caeser salad is very good as was warm bread. The mama chicken soup was hot and good. Grilled chicken and potatoes way to go for me. Chicken marsala also good choice. Had no problems here.

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...
