Carrabbas is one of our favorite restaurants when we go out to dinner with friends . We have never had a bad meal there. Their pasta dishes are yummy

We ate here during our recent house hunting trip to Arizona and it was awful. Prices were outrageous for the quality of food they served. I was sick the entire night after eating their lettuce wraps. They definitely over season their pasta which is disappointing. Server was good but really offered nothing when she realized how unhappy we were with... More

Good quality restaurant. $48 for two people (total bill). Had Chicken Marsala and Chicken Bryan. Portion size is good as we both had leftovers.

This is our 3rd or 4th time at Carrabba's and we've been impressed with the consistency of our experiences. The service has been friendly and proficient and the food very good. The Chicken Bryan and minestrone soup are particularly fine. Definitely a step up from Olive Garden and at least as good as Macaroni Grill as far as chain Italian... More

I've never thought much of the Carrabba's in Overland Park, KS, so I'm not sure why I thought it might be different in AZ, but apparently I did. I was wrong. Our waitress seemed harried and was not very attentive. We started with the calamari. It was heavily breaded and overcooked. The only flavor was the breading and sauce. I... More

They have a good Happy Hour-even on Friday's which is somewhat unusual. We had the 6oz sirloin and Prosciutto shrimp combination. Very good. Service was very good and friendly. The bread basket and Olive oil is a nice touch Prices are reasonable, and nice surroundings. Nice place

My sister came to visit me in May so we went to Carrabba's for dinner. We both got the lasagna and it was okay just not enough of it. Pasta is not that expensive and paying $24 total for my dinner is just to much for what you get. I will never go there again!!!
