Yes it's a chain but it's so good

I don't normally like chain restaurants but I just love the food here. They have three chicken menu items they combine into a single meal called the chicken trio. It's amazing to eat all three combinations together. Their salaries are good and decent wine selection to pair with. I am a regular and... read more

I have the soup and salad. It was tasty; but nothing special. I was there in the middle of the afternoon, so only a few people.

Got the new entrée Tuscan Skewers and the sirloin was over cooked and cold when it arrived after a long wait and there was no crowd. The meat portion was small and the skewer consisted mainly of under cooked red onion. The side dish was hot and perfect. The waitress was excellent and the manager check on us before we... More

I have been to this particular Carrabba's several times. For our last visit we chose to go around 4:00 pm on Sunday for an early dinner. Just in my experience, I have found this and many other places are at their busiest around the typical dinner time of 5-7. Chances are if customers are going to be most disappointed in... More

This was our first and last visit to this place. We thought we would give it a try, but were disappointed. The food was over priced and the lunch selections were limited. The soup and bread were good, but the service and the Caesar salad were bad. I have never seen a salad made with yellow old romaine before. We... More

My wife and I have always loved the Olive Garden . . . still do. But after eating at Carabba's a couple of times, we may like it better. The food is very good Italian food. A varied menu to choose from. Great wine selections. But the best thing of all for us is the atmosphere. We like the décor;... More

Of all the Italian style restaurants in the Roanoke area this is one of my favorites. Albeit it is a franchise, their menu extends beyond the normal Americanized Italian offerings. Tonight was a special occasion and we celebrated two birthdays, I called ahead several hours prior to our arrival to be placed on the wait list, I'm not sure it... More

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.
