If you love garlic and great service, check out this place. Will was our server...very attentive without being imposing. Sean, the manager came by to box our food and insure that we had a good experience. This is way beyond what I would expect of a chain restaurant.

We love this restaurant so much, the atmosphere, service and the food is awesome. We decided to take our daughters out to eat here. I was VERY DISAPPOINTED! The food was not good. I ordered the Damien, a combination of two entrees. It had scallops, shrimp and wood grilled salmon. My scallops and shrimp were overdone and the crust was... More

My husband and I had dinner here while visiting Richmond. The place was packed and had a long wait. We found seats at the "kitchen viewing bar", without waiting for a regular table. What an experience! What actually goes into preparing meals in a restaurant is amazing. Our waitress was Megan, she was so helpful, friendly and efficient. Wonderful person!... More

We ate there for lunch and the food was very good. We got the carnavale pizza. Was fantastic. Waitress brought out really good bread with our drinks. Bread was great, better than most restaurants. I got a salad with my lunch that had a creamy parmessan dressing. Never had that before and it was really good. Waitress was excellent. This... More

I went to Carrabba's instead of my "goto" italian restaurant (The Grapevine) because my wife likes Carrabbas' sauce better. For me, The Grapevine has great specials, great food and the best service, but Carrabba's is still a good choice over something like Olive Garden. I had the SPIEDINO DI MARE, which is shrimp and sea scallops coated with Italian bread... More

I love the Tilapia Nocciola, lightly breaded with hazelnuts. I just wish they had more of a selection of sides. The pastas are wonderful and generous in size. The bread is perfect and I have a hard time resisting eating too much bread, so that I have to bring my entrée home.

My wife and I love this place. The food is really done well and I mean with a chef's touch. Some of the entrees can be pricy but it's well worth it. The booths are set a bit close together and that is not very comfortable so I recommend some attention here but otherwise it's great atmosphere

On January 24, 2015 my daughter and I had an early dinner here. We were seated right away as it was only 5 PM. We both ordered the Sangria, one peach and one red. They were both very good and generous. We ordered the grilled chicken and the rigatoni martino. Both were very good. Our server Jacob W. was very... More

Great food but a little pricey. I do recommend calling ahead to save time getting seated. They have s great menu but they really do need to expand. A great experience overall
