I have been to Carrabba's in the past, but my husband ans best friend had never been so I thought this was a great opportunity while on vacation to go and enjoy their wonderful food as well as surroundings. The minute we walked in we were greeted happily and surprised that we were able to be seated immediately, when that's... More

The food was wonderful, the ambience was warm and inviting, but the one thing that stood out for us was our waitress! When we asked to speak to the Manager at the end of a terrific meal to tell him just how much we enjoyed ourselves, especially the waitress, he said that she had been with them for over eight...

My hubby & I went through our list of possible places to have Sunday brunch for our 29th wedding anniversary today. So why did we choose Carrabba's in Newport News??? Because this is our favorite place to eat! Why choose a brunch buffet when we can sit at a cozy booth, have the attention of a friendly & prompt server,... More

We are locals and have eaten here before. Today the food was coming out of the kitchen at a snail's pace. The waitress was doing her best to keep us updated and was able to get our appetizer out to us. The Bruschetta Paolo is to die for. The flavor profile is outstanding and the mouth feel ranges from spicy... More

Carribba's run an amore Monday deal with three pricing levels. For each, you get choice of: soup or salad; appetizer or dessert; one of about four or five main menu items, plus Italian bread. Well prepared with responsive & pleasant wait staff

My wife sings with the VA Choral Society and Carrabba's was chosen as the place to eat between performances this past Sunday (10/5/14). About 10 of us descended upon them with no warning. The staff was AWESOME. They worked together to quickly accommodate us and no sooner were we seated when a second wave of us (about 6 more) appeared.... More

I went here with my sister in law and her husband. It was fairly busy, but we were seated right away. The server was very prompt about taking our drink orders and he also took our dinner orders since we had decided on our entrees. My sister in law ordered the lentil soup, her husband the Johnny Rocco salad and... More

We went to Carrabas on our first night in Newport News, as it was convenienty located close to the Hampton Inn Oyster Point. The lady serving us was artificially over-friendly probably expecting a generous tip (which I normally leave anyhow if it is worth it). While waiting for our food we were given complimentary bread and herbs flavoured olive-oil that... More

Carrabba's is a good place to go if you want to have a romantic night out with your significant other. I personally would not bring my family there, as it is cozy and the atmosphere somehow caters to couples, but the food is pretty good and the wait staff is very friendly and attentive.
