“Glad the place next door was closed.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

Originally we wanted to go to the Cheeseburger in Paradise, but when we arrived we found it closed. Being pretty hungry, we decided to look no further and walked right next door to Carrabba's.
We've dined at Carrabba's before and were never disappointed, and this location continued the trend. The food was very good, the portions were large, the drinks were cold, and the service was impeccable.
My wife and I ordered an appetizer, split a meal, and left the restaurant stuffed with no room for dessert.

“Very, Very Good Cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Ate dinner there for 2d time and continue to be most pleasantly surprised with cuisine, menu choices, and wines. While not exactly traditional Italian, food was excellent. Pasta e fagioli and Sirloin & lobster ravioli with julienned zucchini was well prepared and quite tasty. Definitely will return again!

“Fantastic!”

We ate here with a group of twenty after our basketball game and had a great experience. The service was excellent and very fast. We had a variety of pasta, pizza and fish dinners and everyone was pleased.

“Good food/atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

We are not into chain restaurants, but Carrabba's is the exception. We visit this restaurant every couple months and are never disappointed. I like the fact that you can see the kitchen. Also, the pizza oven is great...about as close to Italy as you can get. For travelers -- This location is just off I64. If it looks like the HRBT is jammed up (as it usually is during rush hours), Carrabba's is a sure bet for a good meal while you wait for the traffic to die down. The restaurant is kid friendly.
