This restaurant is located on Midlothian Turnpike. Had just arrived after an 8 hour train trip. This dining experience was wonderful to perk me up. The waiter was exceptional in taking care of the table and also brewed coffee for us. The food was very plentiful in portion and was very tasty. I had Chicken Marsala and it was very... More

I had eaten at Carrabba's before and didn't care for it, but we were celebrating our daughter's birthday and it was her husband's choice---I ordered a pasta dish. No Italian restaurant worth its salt overcooks pasta. I guess that pretty much sums it up. It wasn't saved by the sauce, either--it was just bland--I make better pasta at home.

This was REALLY good Italian fare! Have only eaten here twice but everything was perfect both times. Don't try to get in on Friday or Saturday though. The line is out the door. I guess that means the food is good!

Stopped in today for lunch, and it fell just short of 5 stars--if I could have given it 4 1/2 I would have! Hubby ordered off the lunch menu, and had veal piccata--which was excellent. I ordered a favorite, ravioli from the lunch menu, and this brought down my rating that little bit. Not quite enough sauce to please, although... More

My husband and I ate lunch here and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We received excellent service and it was quick. I love Carrabba's lasagna and my husband opts for the spaghetti and meatballs. Love the bread and dipping sauce as well. We'll be back.

My first time there, and a new restaurant opening, I went to see what the fuss was all about.....The food was average, not your REAL Italian, The server was young and way too chatty, making a fuss over my 4 year old, telling me her life story of her 2 year old.I wished she would of just did her job...

We were encouraged by several people to dine at this restaurant for months. We finally went (a party of five) expecting great food and service. For half of us, what we ordered from the menu, we received something totally different. Because of a time issue, we ate what was brought to us. The food was fair with the exception of... More

Only stopped in for a to go order. The ordering process was easy, they have the whole menu on line. The food was ready when I arrived. I did a drive up pick up. The server came out, confirmed the order, went back in, charged my credit card and came out with the food. The service was friendly and the... More

We have wanted to try Carrabbas for a long time so we finally went for Valentines Day. I called about reservations and was told that they did not take reservations but to use their "call ahead" service about 2 hours prior to when we wanted to get there. This worked great. We arrived and were seated within 5 minutes. The... More
