Carrabba's is always busy at dinner time. Therefore, we usually get a seat at the counters overlooking the food preparation area. It's first come first serve. Besides, it is entertaining to watch the food being prepared. This time, all the seats were taken. However, the high tops in the bar area had an opening. No wait and the service was... More

I'm not that picky of a person but I like to leave a restaurant feeling full and not wanting to stop by burger king on my way home, Food tasted good but didn't make me want to go back again for another visit.

It was a very busy time to go but the waitress was very efficient. our entrees' were brought out and each of us dug in with... More

First time dining in a Carrabba's as we don't have them in our area. This location was crazy-busy on a Wednesday night but we had phoned ahead for reservations and waited a very few minutes before being seated. Warm, fresh bread was delicious and even better with their herbed olive oil. Ample portions made for lots of leftovers. The food... More

We like to go to this restaurant on Mondays because they have specials that include appetizer entree and dessert for the same price as just the entree all other nights. Caught the Tenderloin Florentine special and it was the best steak that I have had in a long long time. The steak just melts in your mouth and the seasoning... More

This place is hard to find if you don't know where it is. Buried in the corner of a plaza away from the main road. Once you find it, it is worth it. Been there twice while staying in Buffalo and had great meals. Suggestion - although they don't take reservations, call ahead and put your name on the waiting... More

Got the shrimp and scallop linguine to go. I think the portions are shrinking a bit. But the food is always good. Wish I had thought to ask for flatware since the server didn't provide any.

boosted by a gift certificate and a current coupon ($8 off new menu if two ordered), we returned to carrabba's after a long, not accidental absence, and were reminded of why we didn't hasten back in the first place... it's just not quite worth it... staffing drove us nuts with constant return to try to pick up unfinished dishes --...

Ate at Carraba's last night due to a strong craving. I love their spaghetti with meatballs. You can get it without, or with sausage. I'm picky about meatballs, can't have too much breading or be too mushy. Theirs are just right for me. I noticed that both the pasta and salad serving size have gotten smaller but it's either smaller... More

My wife and I have been dining here since they opened. The prices continually climb while the quality & portions go down. They are pricing themselves as a high end Italian restaurant but the quality does not reflect it. You are better off visiting one of the dozens of locally owned Italian restaurants in the Buffalo area. On our most... More
