If you've read any of my other reviews, you know that my wife and I frequent Carrabba's Itailian Grill while vacationing. There isn't a Carrabba's near our home town, so we take advantage to dine at them, when possible, while vacationing. We love their food and service, and this one is just as good as the rest!

My family LOVES Carrabba's in Bowie! The staff i always friendly even when it's super busy. The bread served with the olive oil and spices alone would be worth the trip but every appetizer and entree we've tried has been wonderful. Desserts are great too.

Have enjoyed the Amore Monday offerings and excellent wait staff. The Shrimp and Scallop Spiedino is a family favorite.

The food is delicious. I love the veal scalloping and the sirloin Marsala. The pasta is tasty and the bread is always terrific,

Can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Been there many times, usually with the wife or with another couple. Love it.

We just had a "family reunion luncheon" at Carrabba's Italian Grill in Bowie, MD and the restaurant could not be any more accommodating to us than they were. We were seated just where we wanted to be in the back away from others so we (a group of 20) could mill around the large table and the memorabelia table that... More

This is our favorite restaurant! When it comes to national chain restaurants this fits the bill. My wife and I go to this restaurant at least every two weeks. We love Italian food, we love value and we love to be pampered! Our first choice in servers is Martin! But it seems like we always miss him so we find... More

You can call ahead for seating I never have issues with the service or the food. We've even order out once. Same great food. I let my waiter know I'm "The Special... More

Had a nice dinner at Carrabba's in Bowie on a Monday night. The food was good, the service was good but the noise level was so loud you could not here the music playing or really hold a conversation. We shared a new bruschetta served hot in a cast iron skillet which was very good. The salad was fresh and... More
