IMPRESSIVE ENOUGH FOR A NATIVE ITALIAN!

This is more of a review of their food via take out. Voss Location My boss was in need of a Small buffet that would be good enough for a Native Italian. We chose the FILET MARSALA 8 oz.

The soup was amazing. We also ordered house salads that were so delightful. The restaurant was packed but still the service exceptional. There was no room... More

I love eating here. Their food is always so incredible and the wine selection is great! We showed up late without a reservation on a Thursday and were seated almost immediately. Service was excellent even with several company Christmas dinner in the main dining room.

Delicious food! All homemade and a lot of food for a decent price. The waiter was super friendly, it was raining when we went and the host walked us to the car with an umbrella! Perfect

1- The waitress was very friendly and accepted a little chat and humor. She was passing on us all the time asking about how we felt and what we needed 2- We liked the freshly baked White Italian bread along with the delicious dip of herbs and olive oil 3- I ordered a vegetarian pizza and it was so good...

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.
