“Great Italian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

Food was good, wine was even better! Nice selection of pastas wih all different sauces. You can add chicken, shrimp to anything as well. It's a nice date night place - except for the 2 screaming children in the booth behind us....

“it is a good taste of Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Carrabba's is a good place to get your fix of Italian food, a lot of great choices. It is not gourmet Italian but it is well above all the other fast food Italian places. The sea food is only so so , I would recommend to stick with chicken and pasta dishes. I come back here pretty often , I am happy.

“Great for takeouts.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

They have dedicated parking places and a waiter that brings the excellent Italian cuisine to your car. A well varied choices with great salads, pasta and meat choices. I love their veal dishes because it is hard to find. Caesar dressing is to die for. They think of everything including olive oil and seasoning for bread dipping. You have to ask about the kids meal choices because they aren't published on the web or takeout menus.

“One of the Best Restaurants in the KC Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

This is our favorite restaurant! We have been there many times and never heard anyone complain about the food. We've taken family and friends with us, and all have been pleased. My husband always gets the pomegranate martini, and the blackberry Sangria is always good. The pasta, pizza, and grilled food are all tasty as well. Try the sausage and fennel soup--one of our favorites. Two other favorites are chicken Marsala and spedini de mare. Guests can order off the menu also. My husband, sister, and brother-in-law all ordered dishes that are no longer on the menu--and they made them especially for them! The servers are very knowledgeable and helpful. Sometimes we order the carryout and are pleased as well,
