Have been loyal patrons of Carrabba's on Kirby but wanted to try the other "Original" Carrabba's. So off we went on Father's Day. The interior is lovely and noise level is low which was a nice change from the location on Kirby. Unfortunately our waiter must have had a hard day or something because his friendliness was set on a... More

We go there, its around the corner and a great place to grab a quick bite to eat, catch up with local friends. The food is always over salted, not just a little bit, but a whole lot. The steaks are salty, the soups are salty, the pasta is salty, even the salad tastes salty. I love Osso bucco, but... More

One of the most authentic Italian-American cuisine. This location is always packed every weekend. Food is really good. Cozze in bianco filet, even the lentil soup are delicious. Service is alright. Our hostess not too friendly. Overall a great choice for fine dinner or business lunch.

Houston's best Italian food? Probably. Our knowledgeable waiter advised us that the Voss and kirby Carraba's locations are still owned by the original Carraba's owners. All others - in all states - are part of a large franchisee network. We came for the food and the food is perfect (and we have had good Italian food all over Italy and... More

Is the original Carrabba's on Kirby out of your travel range? This Carrabba's is a perfect alternative, since it is the only other Carrabba's that is owned by the Carrabba family. Menu is identical in variety and exceptional quality. Love their pasta.

Ate at Carrabba's a few nights ago, had dinner at the bar because we wanted to watch the football game. We ordered a few drinks and dinner. The bartender, Jeff behind the bar was one of the rudest people I have encountered in a long time. The bar was busy, but not to bad. He acted like we were bothering... More

This restaurant is handy to the office and a standard place for business lunches. The service is good and the Italian food consistently good; like then lentil soup. A private dining room is usually available with an advance request. Good place.

My Mother & I eat here when I visit her.This is my favorite Carrabas Restaurant. The food and service are always wonderful. My favorites are the Chicken Bryan (love the goat cheese and sun dried tomato combo) and the Brick Chicken (lots of garlic. Yum!) . My mother loves the Tagliarini in Picchi Pacchiu sauce. The bread and olive oil... More

Very popular Houston eatery with reasonably priced food and a pleasant atmosphere. The lentil soup is a winner, and the pizza is good too.
