Good food and a good value

My wife and I joined another couple last night for a quiet dinner. We got there about after 8 pm which is a great time as the dinner rush is over. Everyone in our group got a pasta entree except me I had the Johnny Rocco salad which I would order again. A special thank you to Cain our waiter... read 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.

We have loved Carrabba's for years but in the past few years quality, portion size and service seem to be dwindling away. Beginning with Olive oil & fresh herbs for bread. The bread was in a linen napkin which kept it warm, plenty of herbs, and cruet of olive oil at table. Then it changed to paper wraper for bread,... More

This place has an opened kitchen there for you can observe service completely! Cook licking his finger, eating food out bags, and drinking behind line! Totally uncalled for and sucks! They give you oil n herb with bread! Salad was nasty lettuce, carrots, and olives! It's totally dark in this place and manager didn't even try to make it right!... More

Gets rather busy on weekends. Food is always good. Service is generally good as well. Still a chain so it may never get have food as good as local chefs can produce. Not always worth it if there is a long wait though

Carrabba's Italian Grill in Independence, Missouri offers a top notch menu of gourmet Italian food, as well as excellent servers. We called-ahead on Valentine's Day for seating at 4:15 and arrived to find the restaurant loaded with waiting customers. Nevertheless, the staff was professional - getting the customers seated as quickly as possible. They offered appetizers to the waiting crowd... More

In comparison with Olive Garden and Macarroni Grill, this is a better chain for Italian food. Love their bread and oil. Nice salads and great pastas.

We enjoy eating here anytime we get the chance primarily for the calamari. This time we were disappointed as it wasn't the normal high quality and was rather chewy. The portions of the meals are always rather big and we came away feeling overly stuffed as usual. The wood fire grilled chicken is the best I have ever had!!!!
