We didn't expect alot being that Carrabba's is a chain restaurant but what we found was great service but below average food. The mussels were chewy and the sauce was bland with bits of uncooked onion floating around in it. The main was Lobster Ravioli which were again chewy and bland. My girlfriends plate of pasta was a $2 meal... More

First time back after being away for 6 yrs. Four of us ate with 4 different meals, all meals were exceptional.. Tasted like real Italian food. Desert canola's were delicious. Sangria was tasty. Service was a little off, but ok. Everything was as good as it was 6 yrs ago. Will go back..a little pricey,but well worth it.

We dined at Carrabbas and enjoyed a variety of dishes. Our waiter was friendly and efficient. We enjoyed the house red wine that he suggested and everyone was pleased with their meal.

try to eat there on a Monday when they have the $12 special - can't eat it all and the food is excellent. The lasagna is better than mine and I'm a pretty good Italian cook.

Very accomodating with the choices we made. Can you replace shrimps with scallops? No problem. Suggested wine and it was very tasty. This was our second visit and the restaurant was full again.

Wife and I ate there on a Thursday. We were surprised to see the entire interior done over; looks nice but is now very noisy as there is nothing to deaden or absorb sound. Place was not busy, no wait and appeared 2/3's full. Took our server a good ten minutes to appear, we ordered adult beverages and an appetizer... More

Food was fine. Waiter Luiz (or something) at the Melbourne Florida branch wasa. Completely jerk. I paid the exact amount and not a penny more (as I didn't have any free change left). While we were waiting outside for our ride, he came out and said "Go [--] yourselves, [--]." His nerves! I was about to beat his face, but... More

This place deserves a 4.5 star but I can not give it a half. The food is good if not traditional and that is great. The service is always excellent the staff seems to really care. They offer monthly specials that are worth trying along with their regular menu items. A great place to go for date nigh, special occasion... More
