“Good Italian Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

I stayed at the Holiday Inn next door and ate a late meal at Carraba's. The food was good, service was friendly, and the price was very reasonable.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Stayed up the road at the Home wood Inn and Suites and there was not a lot of dining options nearby. We noticed this restaurant driving past earlier in the day and decided to give it a try. The cab driver also said that it was a good restaurant. Service was great. A small problem with an appetizer was addressed immediately by the waitress and then the proprietor Kyle came over and added his apologies and offered to cook a replacement himself. The salads were fresh and tasty and our two appetizers, seafood calamari and the stuffed chicken breast stuffed with prosciutto and cheese were both excellent. Very professionally run establishment. Chef Ramsey would be proud.

Stayed at the holiday inn next door.. instead of paying the high prices for room service thru Carrabbas I walked over there after placing an order for Calamari on the phone. Was well worth it!!

“Great food, Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

This restaurant is located next to the Holiday Inn Peabody. They are very kind and family friendly. The bar tenders Steven and Stephan were on top of their game serving to customers.

“Consistently good quality & friendly service for low cost”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

We keep coming back to Carraba's in Peabody. It's tough to make a chain restaurant so successful, but this one has the trick--as evidenced by the large crowds at peak times. It's amazing how good the food is time after time, for the very reasonable prices they charge. So few places today provide delicious hot bread with oil, followed by soup or salad in addition to your entrée, which probably only costs $15 total. While the pizzas and pastas always seem to be popular, the entrees from the grill are hard to beat. My favorite is the Chicken Bryan--wonderful! And if you like Caesar salads as we do, it's hard to find one better--the dressing has a wonderful combination of garlic and grainy mustard, and lots of fresh parmesan on top. The wait staff and management are always present, available and friendly--truly a family atmosphere.
