Carrabba's Italian restaurant

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

We took our son & daughter in law out for dinner on a Tuesday evening. We had just driven in from Illinois. We just wanted to sit and visit before we had our dinner. Our waitress was very friendly and told us of the specials for drinks etc. she also told us what we might like! This was our first... 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

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... 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
