Carrabba's has become a nationwide chain of over 200 restaurants, however, the original Carrabba's is on Kirby Drive in Houston and still owned by Johnny Carrabba. This is not a chain nor tastes like one, it is THE original and THE best!
We gathered with friends for Derek's 40th birthday get-together and dined in the wine room. The service was excellent and the food was amazing. For our table of eight, everyone couldn't stop talking about their wonderful and tasty dinners...for example, my wife's grilled chicken salad was perfect as I sampled it a lot, my friend Tim says his Chicken Bryan was very tasty, and my cappelletti chicken stuffed pasta was simply phenomenal in the creamy red sauce. As we finished our meals, several waiters/waitresses came up behind our birthday friend with a candle lit dessert and sang happy birthday to him in Italian. We all left very satisfied and look forward to the next visit. I highly recommend this place for Italian food. I also recommend ordering the Pasta Carrabba and switching the white cream sauce with red...yum!
