Good Italian comfort food in good quantity at medium price. The restaurant could use a cleaner air supply. Overcooked oil / less than pleasant food odor, spoiled a tasty dinner.

by Sara R. on 12/01/2014 I've been coming to the one in independence since they opened. The service has steadily declined to the point of no return and now I'm served raw food. I ordered the Johnny as I always do. Ordered a medium steak and was served a raw steak. The blood was draining on my plate. Not going... More

The atmosphere is romanic, the music is played soft enough to have intimate conversations. They offer traditional Italian choices as well as other exciting and tasty menu choices, carefully prepared to enhance your dining experience. The service is attentive but not overly intrusive, you don't feel rushed and can enjoy a wonderful intimate dinner.

This has been my favorite restaurant for years. Try the Chicken O'brien, Chicken Marsala, or Pork Tenderloin. Yum yum This restaurant is well run and the employees know what they are doing. I have never had a bad experience there.

We went here to celebrate our teenage grandsons birthday because this is where he wanted to go. The service was horrible and we got there at 5:00 pm. There wasn't many people there at that time last Sunday. The food ,( when we finally got it), was pretty good for the price. The waiter had to be new because he... More

We have eaten at this location for many years and have always "loved" the food and service. Today we went in and sat down, the waiter came to our table and asked us what we wanted to drink, we told him; he brought out our drinks in a reasonable amount of time. He asked if we knew what we wanted... More

Carrabba's is almost like cheating on your spouse, without the obvious implications. The quality of food, outstanding attention to detail never disappoints. Whether seafood or steak, their cuisine is second to none.

Our biggest complaint was the wait for seating ... which in and of itself is normally not a problem with us, we can be patient. However, there were two or three other couples, a large group and a couple smaller groups waiting at the same time. We counted at a minimum 6 2-seat tables sitting empty during our whole wait....

We were traveling, it was freezing outside, but we wanted a nice dinner to celebrate birthdays. Hopped in here on a whim. The staff was limited because inclement weather was coming and they had sent some folks home. Even a bit short staffed our waitress was amazing. The salad and bread was a nice start before our fettuccini arrived. We... More
