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

Very good food and promptly service. We don't go often, but when we do it is a nice experience. If you never been there not to cheap nor expensive for a decent dinner. You be the judge of that. Check it out.

Although this is a chain, they have excellent food! I usually get the salmon with sautéed spinach and a Caesar salad. My husband has tried all of the typical Italian fare and has never been disappointed. I've also had the chicken Bryan which is also wonderful. Good service. Bread with olive oil is also delicious.

Apparently they put anchovy paste in everything. I ALWAYS express my food allergies to the wait staff and double, even triple check before ordering when they serve fish. I ordered salad, with the creamy parmesan dressing. At first taste I knew by the tingle it contained fish or came in contact with fish. Immediately I hailed the waiter, he said... More

I don't care if it is a chain - this is a great restaurant. I went with a group of neighbors for my birthday and they are picky. Every one of them loved it. It doesn't matter if you want chicken or steak- it's really good.

We were on our way hove to Merced, California from Louisiana and my wife suggested we check out a Carrabba's. She had eaten at a Carrabba's in Georgia and said that I would like it. OK, I know this is not exactly authentic but I am a fan of Olive Garden. Being Italian, that may be a sacrilege to say... More
