Consistency

Consistency of service and quality. Another nice visit at this chain. Located just off I40 it's convenient to get to. Traditional Italian for those who eat pasta and those who don't.

Carrabbas was within walking distance of our hotel, which made it very convenient. Go early for dinner, or go late, as it was very crowded during normal dinner hours.

We were staying at a nearby hotel and wanted to splurge on a good meal for our anniversary, so we chose Carrabbas. We were seated immediately and our server, Dustin, came by as soon as we were seated. He took our drink order and by the time he came back, we knew what we wanted to order. We both went... More

Really great Italian franchise, not low end like the OG, no matter if pasta, steak or pizza all pics were excellent, plus their staff cares.

Don't go if you're looking for any special Italian. Nice place but food is pretty bland. Busy place for a Saturday night so call to get your name on the list before you arrive.

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...

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 Sirloin with spicy Sicilian butter, served with... More

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
