Always a great meal here! I'm not sure if it's the atmosphere, or the food, or the generous-sized pour of their great selection of wines, but I really enjoy going to Carrabba's. Pizzas are served hot and fresh directly from wood-fired ovens, and their fresh salads can't be beat. The service is consistently good and the atmosphere is always upbeat... More

After shopping we stopped in mainly because we hadn't been here in a while. We loved the one manager that is no longer here☹️. The hostess, who should set the tone for your experience should be fired. Not at all welcoming. Had her B)&$@ face on. One of us asked how long as there are tables and booths open all... More

We ate here shortly after it opened and were very disappointed. That was a few years ago. My wife had heard from someone that it had improved markedly so we gave it another shot. Food was better but not nearly good enough for the price. It was apparently very popular but also very noisy and not to our liking.

My family of 5 had dinner there on Sunday, February 12. The wait staff and kitchen staff was overwhelmed -- obviously they had not staffed for the number of people who showed up that night. They messed up our drink order, misstepped on the veggies and left out one entree entirely. Our waiter noted our disappointment -- because it was... More

We always stop at this Carrabba's when we are in the area. We love their appetizers, drinks, food and desserts. Stop in if you want a great, fresh Italian meal.

Nine of us got together to surprise a friend for her birthday - we were grateful Carrabbas would take reservations on a Sunday night for a larger party, so we scooped up the opportunity right away. Three of us arrived first, and we were seated immediately while we waited for the rest of our party. We ordered sangrais which were... More

First of all let me start by saying we have gone to this restaurant since it originally opened many years ago. I have recommended it to family and fiends and have eaten in at least 7 other locations but Amherst is close to home and was always our favourite On November 15 we headed there for supper. We were greeted... More

Carabba's is one of my favorite restaurants. I have always had great meals here. On 8/2/16 my husband and I were in the Amherst area so decided to stop here for dinner. Didn't have to wait too long for a booth. Our server was Mark P. He was pleasant and efficient. Our entrees were chicken Bryan with linguine Positano and... More
