An Italian gem

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

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,

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

I never have a disappointing experience with this Carrabbas, providing this is the only one I have ever been to. Sometimes there's a wait, but its worth it. 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

I've been a member of Tripadvisor for a while now but haven't gotten around to writing reviews on here like I should (I am a bit more prolific on yelp dot com) but you know how it is, you get one of those emails about the badges and they just happened to list a number of restaurants that I've actually...

We have eaten many times at different Carrabbas, but this time we ordered car side while staying near here. We ordered four small, individual sized pizzas which came to $48 and was so not worth it. I ordered the Margarita and it had so much black pepper I could barely eat it and did not enjoy it whatsoever. If it... More

I met my friend for dinner, we were sitted right away. We knew we were in for a long night when our server took about 15 mins to come over to the table to acknowledges us and to tell us she'll be right with us, which was about 10 mins later. She took our drink and appetizer order, the appetizers... More
