Handy to hotel.

Handy for takeout to my hotel room across the street. The grilled asparagus, wrapped in proscuitto and fontina, drizzled with a balsamic reduction was Amazing!

We were recently there but had a bit of a hard time finding the place - with the change in sunset times, I am guessing that they did not update their exterior lighting and we drove past the place - twice. But other than that - it is a nice standard issue Carrabba's. Nice wait staff, clean, and pleasant. My... More

Had a very nice dinner at Carrabba's late one evening when traveling across the country and staying nearby. Salads, bread, chicken marsala and the lasagna were very good. Staff was courteous and friendly. Would recommend.

Good food. It's a Carrabba's so you know what to eat here. Good food at a good price. Service is OK for this type of restaurant. Not 5 stars, but you're not paying 5 star prices. I keep going back because it's a good place to eat.

Just got into KC and had tornado warnings so didn't want to go far. The restaurant was just across the road from our hotel. We had a baby with us and the staff was so good with her. The food was excellent. The staff kept our drinks filled without asking. We all ordered something different and small plates were left... More

I made reservations for 8. We were seated even before our entire group was there! The food was delicious as always! We have Italians in our family, and this is our favorite Italian restaurant! The variety on the menu is outstanding-- satisfying even the most picky eaters! Three of us had the scallops and shrimp--mouthwatering! Two had spaghetti and meatballs--good... More

We ate here for dinner one evening and spent around $60 with an appetizer, two entrees and dessert. We got the zucchini fries for an appetizer, which were excellent. My boyfriend got the spaghetti and meatballs which were ok, and I can't even remember what I had, very unmemorable. For dessert I got the cannolis which were ok, nothing to... More

We had a wonderful experience at Carrabbas! Our server - a wonderful young lady - was very attentive and pleasant. The food was delicious and we were not disappointed in any way! The entire experience was A+ and I would definitely recommend this location.
