A great Italian meal with great service

My husband and I decided to try Carrabba's Italian Grill for Saturday Date Night. We arrived early, without a reservation, and had no trouble being seated immediately. Our waiter was Benjamin and, honestly, our great experience was just as much in part to his outstanding customer service abilities... read more

My husband and I once again had a delicious meal here at Carrabba's. We prefer the Hendersonville, TN location because the manager visits each table and makes sure everything is ok. This just adds that very special touch to dining. On this occasion, I ordered my everytime favorite, the carnevale lunch pizza with the Sicilian chicken soup $8.99. My husband... More

Carrabba's, despite being a chain, has GREAT food. Always prepared fresh. The service has always been good too. Often, we sit at the large tables in the bar area and usually end up making new friends.

Our experience was good in that we had a really nice waitress and my dinner was good, though the portion rather small. I ordered a small portion but I guess I didn't think it would be that small. H's pasta with shrimp and vodka sauce had very little flavor when I tasted it and was quite boring actually. We had... More

The American style Italian food offered here is always fresh and cooked to order. My fav is the grilled shrimp/scallop combo (spideno) sp? served with a side of pasta and a salad. It is great.

My husband and I once again stopped in for my usual pizza fix. Today, lunch was on the dinner menu because of Valentine's Day. Although they were very very busy, we had excellent service. Our food was hot and fresh. My husband ordered his usual Chicken Parmesan $15.90 (dinner menu). It was huge. Fresh and hot. My pizza Carnevale was... More

I was finished with work nearby and stopped here for dinner. Since I was alone, I sat at the bar. The menu selections were varied and interesting and prices were on the high side but not ridiculously so. I chose the Calamari Appetizer and the Sirloin Marsala. The draft beer selection was limited to BMC swill and the same two... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants. We would frequent them more often but we don't live closeby. This time Keith waited on us and he was SUPER! He knew the menu. He was friendly and knowledgeable. We even asked him directions to one of the nearby stores and although he was very busy, he provided that information and even... More
