By default, we prefer local owned and operated restaurants. However, in the case of Italian food in Roanoke, we prefer Carrabba's. The combination of fresh ingredients, full flavors, creative offerings, and reasonable prices bring us back a couple of times per year. Their formula is a definite winner for us.

This is an above average restaurant with excellent decor, professional smiling staff and fantastic food. Really good food with too much choice. It is very popular for good reason. Our waitress was superb and to our delight when we asked how good was the Risotto and she said, she would not recommend it for xyz reasons (she preferred different flavours).... More

Everything from the bread to the main course was delicious. I had the Shrimp and Scallop Linguini and it was perfect. Brett S. was a fantastic server and was very helpful.

It's probably been about 8 years since I last ate at a Carrabba's. The Roanoke location lived up to Carrabba's standards. Our server was very friendly and helpful. Our food didn't take long and was hot and flavorful. Convenient location in the Valley View Mall.

I am gluten free and appreciate restaurants with GF menu - We're not from the area but we did eat at this Carraba's 2 years ago while traveling and it was great. Tonight we ate there and I had the grilled sirloin skewer - I ordered rare sirloin and it was medium to well and so tough, I could barely... More

Went for lunch and was happy with the prices on the lunch menu. The restaurant is right next to a mall so there are lots of places to shop within walking distance. The Chicken Bryan sandwich was delicious and the wait staff was very friendly and helpful. It definitely gets more crowded around dinner so if you're looking for a... More

Three of us went for my son's birthday; two of us ordered the pork tenderloin and chicken breast combination. It was so salty we could only eat the broccoli. We have hypertension & there was nothing else we felt safe to order but a small order of fettuccine. The manager comped our meals as he should but we wont be... More

We went years without thinking twice about Carrabba's because we aren't fans of Italian chains. We are now completely hooked! We eat there more often than we should. The grilled meats (chicken/steak) are better than any steak house Ive ever been to...we are from Texas and have had lots of grilled meats. The bread and dipping oil/herbs are to die... More
