I am sad about writing this review. This Carrabba's has always been a favorite of my family. However, last night was less than what we have been used to receiving as far as service, food, and overall experience. We are used to feeling pampered the minute we walk in the door. We have been spoiled over the years by the... More

The bread in this place is amazing, it came out piping hot. For dinner I ordered Steak Marsala and spinach as a side. The steak was cooked well. Spinach was good after I pulled out all of the garlic pieces.

Some reviews state this is a chain and the service is sub par. Maybe they were having a bad day, but this Carrabba's is fantastic! The menu has been updated, food is fresh and the service was outstanding. We have eaten at this restaurant many times over the years and have never had a sub par meal. Their new combination... More

I can't say enough good about this Carrabba's! Conveniently located within the area of Valley View Mall in the valley of Roanoke, Carrabba's offers delicious cuisine, polite and friendly service, clean restrooms and a very pleasing dining experience. Chicken Bryan is one of Carrabba's most popular menu choices, which is the only thing I order every time we dine here.... More

It is difficult to give most chain restaurants a particularly enthusiastic critique, but Carrabba's is the exception to the rule. We have eaten at Carrabba's locations in a number of cities, none was disappointing in any way, and I think the Roanoke restaurant is as good a location as it gets. The staff is well-trained, friendly and efficient. The dining... More

We recently had a gathering at Carrabba's for a little baby shower...very nice place to go. I have been here several times over the years, but this proved to be a special event. First of all, the waiter was excellent. He was extremely attentive, friendly, and never over the top. The choice of foods was excellent. When you have a... More

Even though it was prom night, we were able to get a table. Excellent food and service. Watched the Kentucky Derby with subtitles. Had a great time.

Carrabba's is one of the few chains I will eat at while traveling extensively for work. Quality, flavorful dishes and I absolutely love the bread and olive oil. This location did not disappoint, I enjoyed the Chicken Marsala and was in and out in no time. Service was good and attentive.

Food and service is always consistently good. Portions are on the large size but many entrees come in half/smaller size. Sorry I don't remember our servers name but he was very observant and immediately noticed when requested whole wheat pasta was not served and requested sauce was missing from calamari order. Excellent job on a very busy night.

Carrabba's is a dependable, high-quality Italian restaurant. It is one of the few chain restaurants we still go to as a couple. My wife is always happy with manicotti or lasagna dishes. My favorite is the lobster ravioli--scrumptious! Salads, breads and desserts are all above the standard of most chain restaurants.
