I had dinner with a group of 6 at this chain on the north side of Columbus. Unfortunately, things did not go well from the start. We were seated promptly, but did not see a server for a while. The person at the check-in desk actually volunteered to bring out water and take cocktail orders while waiting for our server.... More

I like Carrabba's and go to them in many cities I visit. The wood fired food is very good, great home made noodles, great wine list. I know it is a chain but it does not act like a chain. They are consistently very good and affordable. Carrabba's has hit on a winning formula that keeps me returning.

We love Carrabba's frequently dine there when traveling. The salad with the house dressing are the best. Mondays they run a special and so we ended up having deserts, absolutely fabulous.

We decided to visit as a spur of the moment decision and will probably bring you the family as the food was really good! The only complaint is that the waitress brought me the wrong wine and acknowledge that fact and over charged me for the wine I did not order. My husband paid the bill but had I looked... More

Always happy with food and service, just wish they was closer to us, but still worth the 1 1/2 hour drive.

Had dinner recently as a member of a large (15 people) group. My expectations were not lofty, expecting a typical chain restaurant Italian experience. While not achieving "special occasion" status, both the food and the service were good enough that I would recommend the restaurant. There was no one who did not enjoy their meal, and a wide variety of... More

We have eaten at this Carrabba's for about 7 years. The food has always been good. The service is usually outstanding. I can only recall having subpar service maybe twice. One time our Pizza we ordered for an appetizer, it had got sent to the wrong table , the manger came to the table, apologized and paid for our Pizza.... More

I liked being able to watch them cook the food. I had a good waitress that kept my drinks filled without me having to ask. I did not like being able to hear the conversation next to me. (In this restaurant's defense, the one lady doing most of the talking was *loud*.) The food was divine!

We went on a Friday the wait wasn't long at all. Which was a good thing. I order the Fiesta De Carraba. For appetizer I had the Mozzarella Marinara it was crispy and really good. I had a Caesar salad the dressing was good and it was just enough not to make it dry or wet. For the main course... More
