Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu. She was very sweet. Restaurant was clean, bathrooms were very clean as well. Restaurant was easy to find and parking was plentiful.

We stopped in for lunch after visiting Yankee Candle. We had great service and our food was really quite delish! The menu has many dishes under 600 calories and a great selection of some decent wines also! The sausage and lentil soup and tuscan steak skewers were amazing! Great bread too and a great choice for lunch!

My friends and I like the Carrabba's Italian Grill very much because the service is excellent, they have great Italian wines, good quality entrees and an exciting new menu. When we ate there recently, however, they had one small but serious problem: cold side dishes and bread that tasted like it hadn't been cooked long enough. Raw dough and cold... More

Every time we come to Williamsburg we eat here. It's one of the most consistent restaurants in the area. The food is always tasty. The service was not the best this last visit. They seemed surprised by the amount of people and understaffed. This, however, seemed to be a theme of the weekend everywhere. Places seemed surprised that there was... More

This restaurant really delivered. Good variety and quality with excellent service and quality but at a reasonable price (average entree about $16). Their fire grilled options were outstanding. Plan to go before 6 or after 7 if you don't want to wait for a table.

The service was good. Our meals tasted great! The location was good. We ate here on a Sunday evening around 6:00 and did not have to wait for a table for 4. The restaurant is located at the end of a small shopping area.

We always enjoy dinner at Carrabbas. The food is of good quality and made with local fresh ingredients. My W&M alumna daughter had a classmate who had worked here and she was told that many things are made from scratch. All our dinners were good and we had an espeically attentive server. Carrabba's is right next to a Yankee Candle... More

I was excited to try Carrabba's but was very disappointed. I ordered a bowl of tomato bisque and it was huge. It sounded better than it was. I realize this is an Italian restaurant, but there was entirely too much garlic. I also order shrimp scampi, so I should have known there was too much garlic. The others in our... More
