Carrabba's is our favorite Italian restaurant. We eat there about 90% of the times we do go out to eat. The food is fantastic, the atmosphere is great, and the service outstanding.

Five people for dinner on a Sun. night. Last visit was 2 years ago, and enjoyed it a lot. But tonight, very slow, inattentive, sporadic service. Good bread, as always, but the appetizer, bacon-onion flatbread was so tough we couldn't cut it. The salads were mediocre and bland. The beer was overpriced. Some of the main dishes were ok, fettucine... More

We had a very good meal, lasagna & flat pasta with tomato, garlic, olive oil (excellent garlic breath) I chose the dinner salad which was pathetic. a bunch of wilted romaine lettuce a ton of carrot strips and 3 wimpy kalamata olives. Very disappointing for a side salad.

Took a friend and her mom out for a nice Italian meal. Service was excellent, very attentive. Food was excellent as always. Thoroughly enjoyable experience. Very short wait, since we did a call ahead. Just wish they were open for lunch also.

I have eaten at this location many times and never really had a bad dinner. My favorite dish is the chicken Bryan , just wonderful flavors with the goat cheese and sun dried tomato's. The bread and salad are always top notch . Great staff and reasonably priced.

Friends treated us Carrabba's for dinner. Food was very tasty. Service was excellent. Food did take a while to come but it was worth the wait. They were also completely full with more people waiting at the time. Would definitely go back.
