I know what we are going to get and we have never been disappointed. Food is good and consistent, ambiance is always nice and for the money, it is a very good place to eat.

I used to be a Carrabba's fan before this visit. The service was good, but the food was pre made and thawed. The lasagna was near inedible and most of my party's food was tasteless. This will be my last visit to any Carrabba's.

I recently had a quick pre-business meeting at Carrabba's and while the wait staff did their job efficiently, I just wasn't able to find something in my meal that reminded me much of great Italian food. Average food, more starchy than anything else, with middle of the road flavoring.

We enjoyed hooking up with friends on our way through Columbus. I highly recommend the calamari and the tomatoes caprese. I order a pizza as my main course and found it way too spicy. The others in our group enjoyed their meals. My husband was put off by the staff cleaning the floor around us while we were still dining.... More

This is a favorite. It's by no means a suit and tie kinda place but it is a step above Olive Garden. A big step. The house salad with the house dressing is pretty fantastic. The bread is always warm and abundant. Very good deals/ specials especially on Mondays. Their desserts are not for me but I've heard good things... More

While on a business trip, I checked with the hotel staff for restaurants nearby, and this was my first choice. The service was excellent, the food was tasty, and the coffee hot and fresh. There was no long wait between the salad and main course, and I enjoyed it so much, I ate there the next night also, and was... More

We always look forward to going to Carrabba's whenever we can. The salad with the house dressing is the best part of the meal. The food and desserts were delicious. Our server though was less attentive and not as good as we've had in the past.
