A RARE VISIT

Growing up with a Mother from Naples, and being an Italian cook myself, I'm not likely to frequent an Italian Food Chain, and would be far more likely try a mom and pop. I was pleasently surprised at Carrabba's Italian Grill, where my girlfriend took me for my birthday. I had the Wood-grilled... read more

Carrabbas is very consistent. It is fresh, tasty, and affordable. It is one of the few restaurant chains that never gives any indication of being such! I love to give gift cards to family and friends for special occasions because it is reliable, consistent in quality and service. I have loved every dish (especially seafood dishes) and I believe I...

Very nice restaurant with very good service. The fettucini with chicken was excellent. Not too heavy on the sauce which I liked.

Shocked from past experience about 10 yr ago, this is a modern and romantic atmosphere with new entries. My birthday and I wanted spaghetti. All four of us enjoyed our meal. Their menu offers much more than pasta dishes. Allowing the four of us to have room for dessert, we ordered a Tiramisu for the appetizer that we shared and... More

My husband and I absolutely love this place, typically he will order the Chicken Bryan which is a juicy butterfly breast meat topped with goat cheese and herbs. I definitely get a few bowls of the minestrone soup to go along with any of the variety of meals I choose. Can be crowded at peak times and a little expensive... More

Carrabba's is my favorite restaurant in the Hickory area. Hubby and I eat there for every special event. The food is consistently good, and the menu offers variety. The wait staff are on their toes, and give enough service without too much service. I think I will check my calendar for another "special event' just to go Carrabba's again soon.

This is the best Carrabbas I've been too. I never forget it and it's always great. Very romantic and very good.

Good, stick-to-the-ribs Sicilian fare; pleasant atmosphere, attentive (but not TOO attentive) service. Wide variety of choices; something for everyone!

I jogged by this place everyday for the past two weeks and decided to visit on my last dinner in town (I prefer non-chain places). The food portion is smaller than I remembered but fresh and tasty. They also don't have happy hour two for one wine anymore, but then again I have not been to this chain for at... More

We came to celebrate our daughters birthday with her grandparents on a Saturday afternoon. We were seated immediately and our server came right over to take our drink order. The salads came out very quickly and our food soon followed. Everything was prepared as ordered and was great.
