My friend and I decided to try the Amore Monday menu. It did not disappoint, and we will definitely try this again. The food was great, and the service was very good too! This may be a chain restaurant, but they do it right! Try it! You won't be disappointed.

My drink-Blue Hawaiian drink had so much alcohol in it you could have concerned it as a shot. Waitress showed my drink to another table then brought it to our table informing us that the drink should be good the bartender quote "put a lot of alcohol in it". The drink was so over powering even my boyfriend refused to... More

Consistent. That's what I always find at Carrabba's. I ordered the chicken trio and I'm completely stuffed. Most and flavorful, not chewy and bland. How do I rate it, I would defiantly come back again. Now what to have for dessert.

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.

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.
