Great Italian Food

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.

We wanted to try something different this Easter with the family for dinner. Some of the restaurants were charging $35.00 per person with reservations made far in advance. We had 3 grandchildren in our party and I love the with all my heart, but they can't eat $35.00 per person. We called the Carrabba's Italian Grill and they were very... More

I brought my lady companion here for a bite, we were quickly ushered in, met with an efficient and quite skilled waitress, who readily made some fine suggestions. We were readily served our drinks and salads, with meals readily in tow, the efficiency of the well orchestrated efforts of all parties was well noticed by my companion. The food was... More

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.
