We've never been disappointed with Carrabbas. We've always had excellent service and delicious food. I ALWAYS get Pollo Rosa Maria and love it every time, and the hot and fresh bread is to die for. We've been to some unique non-chain Italian restaurants in San Francisco and none of them are better than Carrabbas.

We really enjoyed our dining experience at Carrabba's. Our waitress was very nice and attentive. Food tasted great! It was a nice cozy atmosphere to dine in the "bar" area. We will definitely come back. We ate there at a non-busy time, so I think that impacted our positive experience. Entrees are about $20 each, but well worth it.

This is a higher-end chain that has surprisingly good steak. Italian dishes are fresh and tasty at a reasonable price point. This store is well run and some of the best staff I've encountered for this or any other chain.

I have never been to this chain restaurant before even though there is one right by my house. I will never go back to one again. First of all we had a party of 15 and called just under an hour ahead of time for call ahead seating. We didn't get seated for about an hour after an hour. We... More

Carraba's Italian Grill is a favorite of mine. The atmosphere is wonderful and the food is always great. The wait staff is well prepared for making recommendations from the menu and are always friendly. I really don't have a favorite dish to recommend, as I have something different each time that I go there and love everything I've ever had... More

My wife and I enjoy coming here. It's normally quiet enough for a nice conversation and a tasty dinner. What could be better?

We have eaten here a few times this month and like to visit. But, the last few visits the food tasted mediocre. Not made with love. Sometimes the calamari is old or overcooked. My husbands side broccoli was cold with his meal after he was told they were out of garlic mashed potatoes at the dinner hour 630p-700p. The last... More

There is comfort in consistency and Carraba's offers that. Their chicken Bryan in Livonia is as good as in Lansing and that is great when you travel a lot!

My husband and I chose our entree, I pick the appetizer and he picks the dessert. Works very well. Our waitress recomended a super cabernet to go with our dinner.
