First time my family and I ate at Carrabba's. We have one in our hometown but always find a way to eat at a restaurant we haven't gone to until we are out of town. The food and drinks were delicious.

We ate here while in Williamsburg. It was my first visit to a Carraba's and I wasn't expecting much. I was very pleasantly surprised, the food was great. Staff was friendly and attentive. Definitely would return

We had a lovely waitress, Christina M - patient and sweet. Our meal was good. My son likes the spaghetti and meatball and the shrimp and pasta dish was plate clearing worthy. We were seated quickly, bellies filled, greeted with a friendly face -- what more could weary road trippers ask for?!

Had dinner here while in Williamsburg. The food is as you would expect from any Carrabba's. The tomato & mozzarella appetizer and mussels in white wine were tasty. The rest of the meal was good, but not spectacular.

Our waitress Emily was the shining star of this event. We had a large party of six adults and two children (one under 4). She did an excellent job of getting our orders correct, keeping our table bussed and getting our food out in a timely manner. The food at Carrabas has always been consistent. My chicken Bryan was excellent... More

If you're not a Italian food snob but want something close to authentic Italian cuisine and the lines at Sals by Victors are too long, Carrabas Italian Grill may be it. One could go to the College Deli near William & Mary for spaghetti, but Carrabas has a more extensive menu. This is a get them in & out restaurant,... More

I recently ate at this location with my family. After a disturbedly poor serviced meal, I told the manager it was simply unacceptable how poor our waitress was. We especially liked the fact that she spent most of the time in the corner talking to a coworker. The manager, Ryan (?) literally did NOTHING to fix the situation. He simply... More

We always like Carrabas. Food is very good. They have quite a few choices on their menu. They also give you some bread that you dip in olive oil with spices that is very tasty. we had an excellent waitress. The restaurant is right next door to Yankee Candle. They said you could take the beeper in there while you... More

I like Carrabba's. It's a good Thursday night alternative. But, like the title of this review says, the meal just didn't work. I tried one of the Specials, some Chicken Parm Arugula dish. It came across like a salad on top of a McDonald's crispy chicken sandwich. Just not good!! I'll go there again. But, I'll probably stay with one... More
