Once again,I find myself impressed by a chain restaurant. I assume,what have to say, will be mostly true of all their locations,as menu, food and service are part of the company's format. We had not been to a Carrabba's in long time. Wanted to check it out again.We wanted to compare them to their main competitor,since we eat at the "other chain" some.The waiter was very friendly,helpful and knelt down so he could talk to us at our seated level.He was very knowledgeable about the menu items and explained the dishes.He also explained why they are closed week days till 4pm. Unlike their competitor,it is because they make all their menu items from scratch.Apparently,the "other itallian chain" uses only frozen ingredients to make all their menu dishes.I could taste the fresh,"made from scratch" taste in their Pomodoro Sauce.We found out the style was more Sicilian.I had the Spaghetti with Pomodoro Sauce,it was fantastic.The bread is homemade, hard crusted Italian styled bead,served warm and melts in your mouth.The salads are fresh and creative.The service was great.The atmosphere classy.The prices are moderate,(we had a coupon)but well worth it.They more than win "hands down".Much better than their competitor.We highly recommend,this totally authentic experience.We can't wait to go back.
