Delicious!

We enjoy dining here for delicious Italian meals. We try different entrees every time we dine here . Great service, atmosphere and the waitstaff very friendly. Definitely the best choice than other "Italian Restaurantts" that are out there.

First of all our server was very friendly and provided excellent service and the place has a nice ambience. The food was, in my opinion, just ordinary Italian food, nothing exceptional. My wife had veal marsala and my grandson had chicken parmigiana. They both said their meals were good but not exceptional. I had spaghetti with meat sauce that was... More

As a not very active member of Carrabba's Amici Club, decided to try something different. Received an invite to an "exclusive" dinner, at the Novi, MI location. Since we had no Wednesday Night plans, we figured what the heck, we're glad we did. In a group setting we were treated to a four course meal, with selected accompanying wines. Everything... More

Excellent chain. I like the way they don't stint on the spice level. Generally have the sausage and lentil soup, followed by an order of mussels to share with the grandkids. The grandkids get bottomless Shirley Temples to suck on, and maybe some chicken fingers. Friendly service.

We have been going to Carrabba's in Novi for a couple of years now, and it remains one of our favorites. We last ate at Carrabba's on 2/17/15. Started with Red Sangria, if seated during happy hour you get a Quartino for the price of a single saving $3 a glass. The Red sangria is excellent. Also at happy hour... More
