Always a favorite!

We were introduced to the Carrabba's family at the Williamsburg restaurant, and were happy to find one closer to home. My husband and I had supper at the Williamsburg, VA, Carrabba's last week. The food consistently is delicious and plentiful. We love the sausage/lentil soup, Chicken Bryan, and... read more

The wonder is why anyone goes into this place. You could pick from more than a half dozen local Italian restaurants and do better than this joint. It has marketing. It has a pleasant enough room and big TV's around the bar. So, have a drink, watch a game. But if you intend to eat here, look out. Small portions,... More

I WAS a repeat customer and fan of Carraba's, but I am done! I will be throwing out my Dine Rewards card... The last time we went the service was horrible and was served raw pork... This time I ordered lunch to go, 2 chicken caesar salads ($9+ each). When I got home I found maybe 1/3 of a chicken... More

Lunched here Wednesday with my wife. Our friendly and energetic server Ben allowed us to order off the dinner menu, Chicken Piccata with capers--one of our favorites. The delicious bread came first, along with our Pinot Grigio wine (not nearly chilled enough--booo!) Next came our Caesar salads, chilled very well and dressed nicely. The entrees were great, as usual. Wednesday... More

Carraba's has been around for a long time around the country, so you pretty much know what you're getting: really fattening Italian food in large portions that tastes very good, in a large dining room made to look like an Italian family restaurant instead of the major chain that it is. In our visit to this Williamsburg location, the service... More

This was our second time eating here, and the foid was just as good as it was the first time. It was very crowded and she couldn't find our reservation but the hostess just added us so that we wouldn't have to wait.we had the chicken flatbread appetizer which was out of this world! Our entrees were the chicken fettuccine... More

We know Italian food and we are from NY, so we were skeptical....outstanding! Ask for Ben as your server-he was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The bread is warm and there's the most delicious olive oil dipping sauce; I don't know what's in it, but it was amazing. We had the baked ravioli and were extremely impressed. This place is a...

Located on Richmond Road, one of the main streets in Williamsburg, you can find Carrabbas next to the Yankee Candle store. Peter, our waiter, was very attentive and made sure that our experience was exceptional. We had the lightly breaded shrimp and scallops which were absolutely excellent. The Fettucini Alfredo had a good flavor but was a little dry. Portions... More

Sophie was our server and she was fantastic. She answered every question we had and provided helpful suggestions. The food was great and Sophie and the manager were very attentive to our group of 5. They didn't chace us out and we were there 30 minutes past closing. All of us will be back when we return to Williamsburg in... More

We had a gift card and decided to use it. Had never eaten at Carrabbas but heard good things. It was the Sunday after Christmas about 8pm. The place was empty so we figured service would be quick but we were wrong. Despite the barren tables everything was slow to our table. I knew I wanted seafood and chose the... More
