It is a treat to get a nice, sit down meal while traveling. Easy access to the highway. Delicious food: highly recommend the Johnny Rocco salad or the lobster ravioli. Warm bread is a plus.

I saw the Pasta Seconds advertised and thought - hmm - let's try them again. Should have known better :( Our waitress was great, but the food and drink - not so much. The iced tea had a nasty taste, I switched to water but was still charged $2.75 + tax for the tea I didn't drink. The oil they... More

We eat here at least once a month. The food has marvelous flavor, from the soup to the spicy marinara sauce to the fresh, warm bread and dipping oil. They will make your dish just how you want it( mushrooms on the side, switch out the sauce, etc.) We have never had a bad meal and that is saying something... More

While traveling north this spring with my four footed friend, Sammy, we needed a place to have dinner, where my almost well behaved new friend could be nearby. The desk clerk at our hotel suggested Carrabbas, an easy and short walk from the hotel. We were seated outside on the patio; busy on Mother's Day. I brought a travel rug... More

Offers lighter fair, more authentic, and far tastier. I have been to Italy, and I this in the states is the closest to authentic that I can find.

Carraba's is one of my preferred chain Italian restauraunts. Many complain that they are slow at this location, but I have not found that this location is slower than any other. Unlike other chains, Carraba's makes more plates from scratch than their competitors. This combined with wood fired oven cooking takes more time than others. I have only eaten at... More

I dined here last night for the first time. The décor and atmosphere very pleasant, even the prices what I was expecting. I enjoyed my meal, but not something that knocked my socks off, it is truly the presentation that seperates this restaurant from others. I was totally disappointed however in the service. My server average, no interaction at all,... More

Started by being seated at a partially bused table and went downhill from there. Meal started out fine but it took forever for my salad. I asked for a house salad with tomatoes, blue cheese and dressing on the side. When it finally arrived they had added tomatoes but no blue cheese and it was lathered with dressing. While waiting...

Having visited several other Carrabbas, I usually regard them as a step up from Olive Garden in atmosphere & taste. I'll admit up front that I was more exhausted than usual which may have influenced my opinion. However, my husband ordered some calamari as an appetizer (which I do Not recommend)-we might be a bit snobby when it comes to... More
