Great salads and Italian Food. Romantic booths, great service. Extensive menu of original dishes. Nice "fun" bar.

Thoroughly enjoyed spicy wings, chicken marsala and asparagus. The two young ladies who provided service were excellent. Prompt, informative and always upbeat. Wish I lived closer, this would be a regular stop.

We had a fabulous waitress who offered recommendations on both food and drink. She was charming and very cheerful. Parking was a bit of an issue because they share a lot with another popular restaurant.

I love going to Carrabba's when I travel as there is not one in the city that I live near. The food is consistent from one store to the next and the food is great especially the calamari, it is never tough. I never eat lasagna anywhere else.

The service and food quality at this location has really declined. It used to be hard to get a table but now tables have been readily available the last 2 times we have been there. The prices seem to have gone up and the food volume has decreased. On the last occasion there we had a table for 8. We... More

Stopped off the highway for quick lunch, and was pleasantly surprised by the patio for outdoor seating. They have decorated it in a way, that you don't know that you are in a parking lot. The staff was very pleasant. I ordered the Italian Lettuce Wraps, very nicely done, don't forget to put the oil on them! This red pepper... More

I love their food and their décor in their restaurants are really great!! They have a great menu and you can actually see them preparing your food which is a plus for the customers. The smell coming from the kitchen area was marvelous!

I took 7 of us to Carrabba's on Westnedge this weekend. I appreciate the call ahead system first of all! Everyone enjoyed their entrees and sides. Our waitresses were most gracious - even though the place was busy (proms in town). I'll be back there again soon.

Our food was hot fast to come friendly staffers. We had an awesome time. We will be back soon. We didn't have to wait long we did the call ahead. We had the chicken Marcella, pasta with shrimp and scallops, very good. Bacon wrapped with pork tenderloins. My mouth is watery while writing this. Their house salad and there signature... More
