5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

Great service, great food, worth every penny. This has grown to be a favorite for our family. This is as close to perfect as you can find.

“Very nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

After a miserable experience at the horrendous Bennucci's on Cork St. in Kalamazoo two nights earlier, we chose this restaurant. We were really happy with the atmosphere, service and food. The lobster ravioli was really delicious, with a nice sauce. My two companions also enjoyed their choices very much. Our server was excellent. I look forward to going back.

“Great Saturday Afternoon Lunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

One of the most peaceful lunches ever! We were there at about 3 or so, PM. No screaming kids, didn't have 400 people crammed in there, & the food was HOT! Even the appetizer bread was steaming, along with the Entire meal. Kudos to the kitchen staff!!
We had the best Ever Fettuccine Alfredo. Really, the best in a long time, from anywhere. I loved the Chicken Parmesan, but I always get this here. This time it seemed to be cooked exactly to my liking, golden brown. My dining mate had an Italian soda with double the raspberry syrup & it was perfect. The waiter was friendly, but didnt hover.

“So-so”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Crowded Sunday night. Sat at the bar. Service was mediocre to poor. Took long time to get service. Portions were small, bread was late . . . Oh well

“Great place for Mother's Day lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

The service was extremely quick and the food was delicious as usual. Our waitress did a great job of getting something for our child to eat in a timely manner which was appreciated. This Carrabba's is our go to place for special occasions and we will definitely be going back again!
