Italian? You want Italian? Learn to make the classic Italian aperitif cocktail the Negroni! Our local Carrabbas is a fine and upstanding representative of this good all-American chain, but negroni was unkwnon here until last night. Thank you for asking and for making it to my specs!

“30 Minute Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

We were greeted, seated, fed, and were out the door in thirty minutes. We were not rushed, were given exceptional service, and the food was delicious. I do have to add the the restaurant was less than a third full, which definitely expedited the entire process. Good food, good service, and good prices.

“Another great Italian Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

We are Carrabba’s regulars back in our home State. What we liked about this location was that the shrimp on the Pasta Weesie is still sautéed instead of grilled. This makes for a much better flavor. My sirloin was large, tender and cooked to perfection. Service was fantastic. Obviously a property under good management. Another plus is the location ... across the parking lot from the vast outlet mall.

“1st time was amazing, 2nd time was okay, 3rd time was the worst.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012 via mobile

This is may third review and will be my final.
The salads had hair in them, yes both salads....
The entries were barley edible completely over cooked...
Cremebrulee...now the dessert was the last chance...they made a begginer mistake letting the eggs sit while cooking scrambling part of the egg and leaving the rest runny, in short it was terrible. I ordered a latte with dessert and got what tasted like drip coffee with creamer...do we not know how to steam milk and produce foam??? Do they know what a latté is?

Allover review is I expect an apology for my terrible experience as I truly will never be back to this chain.
