I've always rated Carrabba's as a fairly solid choice while in Florida, but our latest experience was not good. I had minestrone soup - but it had no pasta in it at all - let alone macaroni! My friend ordered a lasagne and chicken dish combo, but the manager came over and told us that all the lasagne had been... More

Carrabba's has consistently great food. It is fresh and the portions are very large. It is a great value! The service is always great, also.

We really like Carrabba's at home so we tried it on vacation in Orlando. The last time we were here a waiter actually licked his fingers to seperate and hand out our napkins - gross. This time my dinner was brought out burned. Would not go back.

Went here on the recommendation of a friend and it didn't disappoint. We loved the food and went back the following day. Service on the second was not as good but not awful. Prices were very good, Monday special menu was great value.

I was extremely disappointed on a recent visit to Carabbas whilst on holiday, particularly as we have always had very positive experiences in the past.....albeit in Atlanta rather than Orlando. The level of service was poor to say the least. Having waited over 30 mins to get a drink then a further 30 minutes for our main meals which not... More

Had a party of five for dinner. The hostesses were nice and a large party had just cleared out of the bar area and she offered to seat us immediately there if we were ok with the high top table. We accepted and got seated within 10 minuets of our arrival. Our waiter came promptly but seemed annoyed from the... More

We have been regular patrons of this restaurant since it opened but last night's dinner certainly was not their best. Yes, the service was very good and the bar-server very attentive but the food was certainly not on a par with previous visits. It was the last night of the Sirloin & Lobster Ravioli special, which my husband ordered and... More

We were staying over the road at Springhill Suites (lovely hotel) and I found this restaurant on TA - thank you for those reviews! It was so good we went back on our second week on holiday :) The waiting staff were very attentive without being too much! The food was amazing and the bread to start was so nice.... More

We visited here early evening but it was really busy with families so we had to wait for a while for our waitress to refill drinks etc. The positive side was the food,try the lobster ravioli it's wonderful will definitely be back
