Visited with 2 small children. Waitress was the best! Very accommodating with quick service. Food is similar style to Olive Garden. Would def return.

Our server took our order quickly. It went down hill from there. Our appetiser was never arrived. Food was ok but nothing amazing. Have had better meals elsewhere.

Great food, great prices, nice atmosphere. Who could want anything more? We stayed nearby on a trip to Disney, and our family (which included kids and grandparents) loved Carrabbas. Watch for their "Special" nights, and you just can't beat the prices. This is a family restaurant, but the quality is good enough to make the grow ups feel no sacrifice... More

My wife and I, along with my son and daughter-in-law, visited the Orlando area to take in the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill. Our hotel was near the Universal theme park so in the evening we decided to dine out at the Carrabba's, well within walking distance from our hotel. Understanding that on a Friday night, any creditable restaurant... More

Took our family of 5 a wait of one hour before we were seated after being told a wait of 30. Food was not at all good. I ordered veal picata and the meat was 1/2 inch thick and never pounded to be thinner. Extra noodle (Fetuccini Alfredo) to go with it was charged an additional $1.50. So far I... More

We ate here on two nights. The food was delicious and everyone enjoyed their meals. They had a $15 special where you choose either soup or salad, a entree, and desert, which was a good value. The first night our waiter was frazzled. We had to wait for most everything. Sat and waited so long that we asked the manager... More

Fast, friendly service. Great variety on the menu. Visited on a Wednesday and received $10 off on a bottle of wine. My husband had the Pollo Rosa Maria and I had Chicken Marsala. I always find it odd that you only get one side - rather than a carb and a veg. Regardless, our dinners were great! Lots of parking... More

We stumbled upon this. The waitstaff was very pleasant and helpful. The food was not worth it - overpriced, very very potently spicy, and clearly commercial grade, central location prepared and frozen and reheated at the restaurant. The calamari was replete with spicy garlic and black pepper even though we had specifically asked about the spice level and if it... More

With so much of their menu made from scratch, what's not to like? I had the salmon filet and my husband had the chicken pram which we both very much enjoyed. No close to our hotel which was a definite plus. I always recommend Carrabbas because if you are unhappy they take pride in making things right even if it... More

We went to Carrabba's closest to our house here in Orlando for my birthday (2/26) and pretty much everything was bad. The wait was OK. The server came to the table within a reasonable period of time. It took forever to receive our bread and even longer to receive our drinks. Forget about my wine. I had to ask our... More
