We dine here every couple of months. Everything is good especially the bread and olive oil they provide with every meal but the star of the show here is pasta weezie. Shrimp with mushrooms and capers in a Alfredo sauce. Try it once and you'll never order anything else.

Located just off of McDowell and right around the corner from all the hustle and bustle of traffic you will find yourself inside of a nice Italian dinning establishment, with real pictures of the family that started this Chain and pictures of Italy, etc on the walls, low lights. The food is very good, fresh, and a lot of it... More

Very impressed again. Our second visit with our friends and everything was wonderful. I had a pizza & JJ had the fettuccine.

As road weary travelers, we visited this restaurant on a busy Friday night. We sat in the bar/lounge area at a booth and enjoyed the attentive service. This was our first visit to this chain and we were pleasantly surprised. Because the area is so busy (along major roadways) we ended up taking an Uber from our nearby hotel. The... More

Excellent Italian food, well priced and excellent service. Only complaint was the booth seating wasn't very comfortable and the ambiance was not conducive for a romantic dinner date.

Once again a great meal at Carrabas! AThe bread is always warm & served quickly with olive oil & spices! The Parmesan crusted chicken was great! Cesar salad and soup choice is included along with one side- veggies or pasta! Great service & good pricing!

We eat at this location often. The happy hour specials are amazing! Half price drinks and appetizers Monday-Friday 4-7pm. Great food! Even better service! You won't be sorry!

My family and I usually come here on a Sunday right after lunch hour. Usually tables are available, we usually sit in the back table, really long with benches. I love the service, waitress knows the menu and items very well but I always order my favorite, Cioppino. It's always delicious full of flavor and spices with seafood. We will... More

My husband and I decided to try Carrabba's last night. After a visit to the ladies room, I told the hostess that the ladies room needed immediate attention. Needless to say, I couldn't enjoy my meal thinking that the kitchen could be in a similar condition. I didn't tell my husband so he could at least enjoy his meal. The... More

Received a gift card at this location so decided to dine there tonight for the first time. Arrived around 5 pm to a very busy restaurant but was seated quickly. Restaurant is nicely decorated and clean. Large area with many seats but not to loud. Service was very good and professional. Our three entrees were a disappointment though. Two of... More
