We used to have a Carrabba's here in St. Louis, which I loved, but they closed shop a dozen years ago. So, while visiting Franklin I was excited to eat here again. They do offer call ahead seating and we got in right away. It was downhill from that point. The caesar salad was awful and the main entrée of... More

This chain left St Louis where I live. This is a town with strong Italian heritage so we have many very good family and high end Italian eateries. Carrabba's left several years ago I ate there once I think could not remember it well but a friend wanted to go so I agreed. Call ahead seating paid off we had... More

I usually pick Carrabba's because of their consistency and good food. All except this location. I attempted to call in a take out order...and discussed what was on the menu as I didn't have the menu at my fingertips, but was familiar with what was on it. I went through some items and thought I had put in the order...but... More

Went for late lunch - early dinner yesterday. Interest sparked after reading Carrabba's named the best Italian Chain. Had been there twice before but many years ago. Service was attentive. Arancini appetizer very tasty. Not greasy, very good. Ceasar side salads were awful. Very pour quality. Obviously with romaine you expect some of the spine but my salad was all... More

Excellent food: my wife had the tilapia with hazelnut breading while I had "the Damien" (grilled salmon with grilled scallops & shrimp); our french green beans were excellent as were the salads. I also had a cup the chicken vegetable soup, again excellent. The service (James) was excellent from start - quick drink service & very attentive (not smothering though)... More

This has to be one of the Best Restaurants in the Nashville area. Everything is always a "10" with this place. We eat here on a monthly basis and have done so for the past 15 years...it is one of our family's favorites...for every reason you can think of. There is nothing bad to say about this place. I know... More

Carrabba's chain is well run and very consistent in everyone we have frequented. The service and food is always very good. I particularly like to option for small portions. My favorites are the fried squid with pepperoncini sauce and veal marsala. They also make a fine dirty martini with blue cheese stuffed olives.

Appetizer was excellent -- fried zucchini. Mahi on a plank was well prepared -- good texture and great taste. Mini cannoli's were tasty. Food was good -- service was only so-so. After delivery of appetizer and salads, we had to ask for silverware. Had to flag down the waiter to replenish water. No question asked if we wanted more bread... More

Carrabba's has great, freshly prepared food. They offer many unique dishes as well. The food is actually prepped and cooked, and not just nuked.

While in Franklin on a business trip, my colleagues and I went here for dinner. Little did I know that Carrabba’s had a GF menu (I was totally prepared for a salad). The second I mentioned it our waiter started to rattle off several items on the menu I could eat it. They even have dessert (vanilla ice cream with... More
