Not your average Italian!

I have made Carrabba's my go-to place for when I want not just Italian, but really good tasting food. The recipes have some detail to them. My favorite is Mahi Wolfe, a wonderfully thick piece of Mahi that has great texture. They serve a lovely Italian soda of syrup and seltzer. The room... read more

Food is okay. They serve the strangest Minestrone soup. Portions are tiny for the price. Service was friendly enough.

Eric and his team do a fantastic job of creating an intimate atmosphere and combining it with fantastic service and excellent food. The team is always friendly, helpful and willing to please. The food is superb. A great place for any gathering - an intimate dinner for two or a group celebration. We're there quite often and they make each... More

My wife and I were here for a late lunch and there three or four other occupied tables. Our waiter Joseph B did a great job explaining everything and making sure our needs were met. We ordered the mussels for an appetizer. There were a very good amount and very garlicky. I had a spicy lentil and sausage soup. It... More

I have been to a Carrabba's before so I knew what to expect and I was not disappointed. The food is absolutely delicious. The service is prompt an attentive. Its a little pricey but you get what you pay for and what you pay for here is a great meal in a nice place.

On a very busy Saturday night we were able to make a reservation online and had a minimal wait. On this night I had a request from the manager - to purchase about 25 gift cards. I apologized for doing it on his busiest night, and he was very helpful! He promptly took care of it. The food was excellent... More

Traveling & stopped for Pizza. Service fair - Pizza was under cooked & could have used a bit more basil. Not much taste. Disappointing. Won't be back. Not busy - but waiters seemed to meet up by the kitchen. No water refill - had to wait for check.

A little hard to find but well worth going to. The food was tasty and arrived on time. The service was second to none. Our Waitress Bryanna was, polite, courteous and friendly and new the lunch and dinner menu inside out. Lovely relaxing atmosphere and the air-conditioning was on just the right temperature having come in from a hot car... More
