This is a chain?

My son and I ate here after an exhausting day at Universal Studios. I had never eaten at this chain and was pleasantly surprised at how personable the staff was and how comfortable it was. Our server was Phil and he went out of his way to pack us a "care package" with our leftovers and dessert to... read more

Great food and great service, exactly what I've come to expect from Carrabba's! From the fresh bread and oils to our main entree, absolutely phenomenal! Service was top notch!

This was by far our favourite restaurant while staying in International Drive because it offered healthy options and vegetarian options as well as all your pizza, pasta, meat and fish. The staff were unbelievably caring and friendly and the kids menu is great - I highly recommend it,

At entering the restaurant one can smell already, the cooks like cheese a lot. Indeed, they put cheese in everything. Even in the dressings for salads! This was too much, in our opinion. The food was just fine, we could not say it is extraordinary. If you like cheese, this is probably a good place to be. If not, another... More

We got everything we expected by coming to Carrabba's. There was something holding up the food in the kitchen, but our waitress was sure to inform us about it. So that made it ok!

Only our second time eating at a Carrabba's. Friendly greeting at the door and were seated right away. Wait staff was great and explained all our choices and options. Gave us plenty of time to figure it out and order. My soup and the wife's salad came and we began enjoying our meal. That's when I noticed the German cockroach... More

We still have to get used to the fast way of eating of Americans. No hurry but asking you 4 times if you have made your choice. The appetizers do arrive with the main course, not good. Overall the food was good but way to greasy. All pasta's were soaked with oil and the italian salad was already spreaded with... More

Food is always consistently good but the server made this visit special as she paid special attention to my granddaughter.

We had a lovely family meal here, portion sizes seemed just right, and a good drink selection. The only reason I'd mark it down slightly would be that my lasagne was seriously garlicky - you expect a lot of garlic in an Italian, but this was slightly over. My sons steak was ordered medium rare and was medium, but this... More
