When we arrived we asked to be seated on the patio. Unfortunately there was a lack of communication between the hostess and our waitress. A gentleman came around and asked how we were doing and we explained. It happened to be the owner, from that moment everything was perfect. He more than made up for the error( and it is... More

The restaurant I visited is located in Merritt Island, Florida. Only one that I know of serving lunch. Food was outstanding, always. We had a great server. This Carrabba's never fails.

Love this place because no matter what location you go to, the food can be expected to be great. We had Pork chops tonight and shrimp and scallops over pasta and both were fantastic! My favorite is the Chicken Marsala and my wife's favorite is the Chicken Parmesian. The service was excellent and very few people when we went at... More

The sauce that came with my Parmesan chicken was so oily, I just kept tying to mix it together. The "house" salad was just romaine lettuce,... More

So excited Carrabba's is open for lunch. An excellent venue for a business lunch, or if you just want to drop in with friends and/or family. The lunch menu is as yummy as the dinner menu, with a nice variety and lower prices to match. Food is always yummy and the owner is always out amongst the guests inquiring about... More

This is the best place for excellent Italian food. You always get fresh hot rolls with excellent olive oil. The food is awesome no matter what you order. Love it!
