Good Food, Great Service!

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... read 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

The kids always want to eat at a hamburger joint. I always want to eat at Carrabba's when we travel to Roanoke VA. I won this time. Well, sort of. The food was good. But for the half portion I received, I would expect to pay half the price. No luck there. Perhaps lunch was the mistake. The price was... More

This may well have been the most interesting waiter I have ever encountered. Food was good and service was good, not great but was good. The waiter seemed to be intoxicated or way too friendly- shared stories with us that were off the wall and a little to personal to share with complete strangers, although he did seem to know...
