First time ever in this chain and was very impressed. The décor was pleasant and well maintained. It was not busy on this weeknight and the service was excellent. The best surprise was the pastas were exceptional. I am used to Olive Garden and this knocks them out of the park. Hope they come to our area sometime soon.

Our group of ladies comes to Williamsburg every year. We know how it works at Carraba's so we arrive at 4:30 to request our table for 11 at 5:30. The entire group is there at 5:15 but told we won't be seated for at least 45 minutes. We are staring at an empty table for 11. They just don't care... More

We brought our family here for lunch yesterday (Labor Day). Seated right away in a large booth. The bread here is delicious and kept us going until our entrees arrived (well-timed). I had the Chicken Brian--delicious taste combination along with a pasta side dish with sauce that had a zing to it. Three of our party had the spaghetti and... More

On a busy Friday evening we did not expect to either get seated OR to have such attentive service (from Patrick). We were looking for a light meal and found their home-made chicken noodle soup to be excellent. Also, the 4-cheese pizza was delicious esp. with meatballs added! Nice to see "quartino" size servings of Italian super-tuscan wines available. Will... More

The poor waiter was over his head it seemed. He never asked any of the 9 people at our table if we wanted another drink, and a water never brought. The food came out in significant waves. Exactly 13 minutes from the first 5 and the last 4 meals. The restaurant was not busy as it could have been. The... More

Located in a shopping center next to the huge Yankee Candle store. Excellent pasta, salads, and drinks. Service was quick and friendly, prices reasonable. Typical of the other Carrabba's we have visited in other cities.

If you like dishes with sauces this is it. Daughter loved the mahi mahi. Very flaky. Son had lobster Mac and cheese. He very much enjoyed it and the chicken soup. I had lasagne which was good and very filling. Husband had spaghetti with sausage which he liked. Grandson had skewer sirloin. He liked that. Little loud atmosphere. Very family... More

Chose to eat at this chain restaurant as it consistently has quality food and service. We found this location to be just as good as any we've been to. Look out for a coupon for $10 off 2 entrees and it turns out to be a decent value. Sirloin marsala and mahi mahi combo was very good. Service was also... More
