Decent Italian food, casual dining

Carrabba's is probably the same wherever you go, but it's a nice place for a reasonably quick Italian meal. We had a very nice server, Zoe. I had their sausage & lentil soup which I hadn't remembered was so spicy, but it's still good. My husband's salad looked excellent. We shared an appetizer of... read more

Upon arrival we had to wait but we were given the buzzer and invited to to look around at the Yankee Candle store which I thought was great. the wait was not long but the food and service was worth it. the staff was very pleasant and the atmosphere was very comfortable and inviting.

Ok. Where to begin here. Took my wife, daughter and son-in-law to Carrabba's for supper. Our waitress whose name I do not remember was very friendly and a wonderful server. She was the only good part of the night. We ordered drinks for starters and an appetizer. My wife's drink was so strong that she had to ask for a... More

Called ahead for seating as were bringing a family of nine during the holidays. Our table was ready upon arrival and we were seated immediately. Our server Ashley took our drink orders and brought us two baskets of their tasty bread with oil for dipping. My grandkids ordered their favorites and we adults had our favorite entrees. Ashley handled our... More

Headed over to Milano's for a nice Italian New Years eve dinner and to our surprise they were closed. Just as well I have been wanting to go back to Carrabba's Italian Restaurant. Had been to one years ago in NC. Started off with a glass of wine and bread. The bread was warm and served with herbs and olive... More

On a busy Saturday nite before Christmas, I ventured into the Williamsburg Carrabba's. The overall experience was wonderful. The only drawback is that one of the bartenders was a tad rude the servers and some guests. Even if he was kidding, I found it somewhat unprofessional.

We have never had a bad meal at your restaurant. The staff is quite friendly and most helpful. We had a half hour wait in the lobby but it was worth it. We had a chance to ttalk with others while waiting and it was a friendly atmosphere. Our dinner was excellent!!!

This place is always bustling. This is like the place Yogi commented on to a rookie one time. He said, "Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded." The bread and olive oil spiced dip is marvelous. But aside from knowing exactly how long to cook the pasta, they use copious amounts of olive oil and offer generous fresh, grated parmesan.

Carraba's is fairly widely dispersed round the country. The menu is similar in all locations. The menu has recently been revised and probably not for the better. The option for smaller entrees have been eliminated and an additional charge added for various sauces. The service is good, the bread good, the food reliably good. We have often seen people waiting... More
