I normally do not go to "chain" Italian restaurants, as I am Italian and prefer homemade or small Italian owned restaurants. However, I must admit this restaurant does a fine job with its pasta and Italian dishes, soups and salads. I was pleasantly surprised with my chicken marsala -- one of the best I have had!

Server Alexandria was attentive. Food was good, chicken with arugula was 5⭐️, but we sat in a booth and the wooden shutter blinds were filthy, and the the window sill behind them was dirty and had dead bugs on it. Yuck 🤢

The food is good for a chain restaurant. It's the kaotic atmosphere that takes it down a couple of notches. They do not take reservations, more like call ahead, but still expect to wait. On a busy night you are closely surrounded by people and lots of noise. They do not have adequate space for people waiting for a table.... More

In my travels I often seek out a Carrabbas's for their high quality service and especially fresh ingredients. I have visited at least 10 locations and also visit Bonefish Grill and Flemming's which are associated with the parent company. The quality of servers and their training and the management of the kitchen is exceptionally poor and remarkably so compared to... More

This is one of our favorite places for Italian food in Mishawaka. The food is always prepared well with generous portions and the staff is always friendly and courteous. Maybe a little pricey but I never feel like I didn't get what I paid for.

Good variety on menu, great food (every thing we had), never rushed even when people were waiting, great staff, I've dined at other of their restaurants and have found all consistently great food and great atmosphere (my only complaint is that I haven't found any on the west coast). Prices are reasonable.

EAT HERE! I've dined here since it's been in Mishawaka. It is the all-around winner: great ambiance, music, lighting, service, drinks, food, food, food! Everything is good! Great bathrooms, too. Sage advise: EAT HERE OFTEN! Seriously the best!

Others have had good food and service at Carrabbas, but we haven't. I ordered something that was unrecognizable as the dish I thought I was getting, or at least what I've gotten at other restaurants. When pointing this out to the waitress, she could not have cared less. Okay, I acknowledge that restaurants have less-than-stellar nights, and occasionally hired help... More

Walked in on a Saturday evening @ 4:55. Told to have a seat and wait. Lots of empty tables. I'm assuming waiters were coming on duty at 5, thence the delay. Another coue behind us left when they were told they would have to wait. No explanation given by hostess. Going to an Italian restaurant, I would assume that pasta... More
