We had not been to Carrabba's in a long time and went to celebrate a birthday. First, the really tasty things: the peach Sangria was refreshing and yummy. The goat cheese broschetta was creamy with a big taste of red (sweet) peppers. Our entrees: the lobster mac and cheese, although with just tiny bits of lobster, was still really good.... More

We recently had occasion to eat at Carraba's and it's usually one of the good spots to eat. This trip the calamari was absolutely perfect! Light, crisp, flavorful, but the lasagna and shrimp and scallop linguine with vodka sauce fell a bit short. the sauce on both dishes was so salty that it about burned our tongues to eat it.... More

Music is wonderful and the food is even better...the familiarity of the tie wearing waiter is gone but the service (which was found across the USA) is still polite even tho' they now all look like any other restaurant. I miss the uniqueness.

Our annual tradition while on our Christmas shopping trip. Always have early dinner here. Excellent service. Pasta weesie is amazing, and their hand-cut mozzarella sticks are a must. The berry sangria is definitely a must-have as well!!

I had spaghetti with meat sauce. I think there should have been a bit more meat and less juice in the meat sauce.

Good food, good service. Clean restrooms. Atmosphere is hard to describe....crowded, unorganized, bunch of tables in a room? Overall, good experience.

Our server was very nice and knowledgeable, however she was a bit slow. The food wasn't the greatest but I think it's my own personal palette because everyone else seemed to enjoy their food, when if finally made it out.
