My wife and I were looking forward to our visit to this usually consistently good restaurant. What an exception this time. Everything we ordered from Chicken Soup to Chicken Marcela had an excessive amount of pepper. It just overpowered the food which made the experience below par. Service was OK

I am not a fan of Carrabba's. We had a large party (13) on a Thursday night with 2 toddlers with early bedtimes, so we called at 4:30 and put our name in for a 6:30 arrival. When we arrived at 6:25, they had given our table to another party and we ended up waiting another 50 minutes for a... More

I am a big fan of the Spedino de' Maria, normally get 6 shrimp and 6 scallops drizzled with parmesan garlic cream sauce. Fairly pricey- $18.90. When the order arrived, they had cut each item to 4 each and added $2.00 for the fettuccini alfredo. In addition, the scallops were not tender, they appeared to have been stamped out of... More

Food and atmosphere is awesome. The bread and dip on the tables is amazing. Cut down on the olive oil and use more Basalmic. Ask for salad dressings on the side, and just dip your fork in it. You will skip a lot of calories. Ask for sauces on the side. Read Nutritional information. A great restaurant.

Food is made to order but food don't taste great. Staff was friendly. Chef was nice. Spegetti noodles were hard. I didn't think menu had great choices. The mixed drinks are good though. There is a bar to watch the cook that is fun. Go if you just want a pizza.

Not a fan of the changes. Carabba's has been our family favorite for years. They have recently remodeled to get more people in. It's now really loud and cramped. The food portions have been cut, and the overall flavor has declined. If you liked the bread,you now have to request and the receip has changed. We think you've messed up... More

Carrabba's is an Italian restaurant chain in the US. Been there a number of times, thought it was time to do a review. If you're travelling in the US, Carrabba's is a great place to go if your in the mood for Italian food. For Canadians, Carrabba's is similar to East Side Mario's, but with a slightly higher class level,... More
