Of course all of the Classic Italian dishes are wonderful, but let's talk about those pork chops! Thick and juicy and full of savory flavor. They are now my go to dish. We love to eat at the serving bar in the back and watch the line cooks hustle to get all of the orders up. The servers are always... More

Our waitress was very kind and helpful. The food was of average price. Try the flatbreads and the basil soup.

Our waiter was outstanding and the food was good. The price continues to rise and it's getting to the point where we may stop going. If im going to spend that much money, I may start going to a more high end establishment and not a chain.

Shawn, one of the chefs, was so wonderful explaining how they cook and time things, Sarah the kitchen manager who kept things running so smoothly while still taking the time to check on us and explain how her job works,...

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...
