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

We stopped in at Carraba's for a late night dinner on a Sunday night and were pleasantly surprised with a pretty good meal. They got us right in and we got to sit right in front of the TV for a NLCS game that we would've missed otherwise. The waitstaff was great and our server was knowledgeable about the menu.... More
