This was my first time dining here and I really didn't have high expectations but I was pleasantly surprised! Our waitress (Alex) was courteous & enthusiastic and assisted us with our orders and regularly refilled our glasses. Between us we had one pizza, one pasta, one seafood and one chicken dish, the latter two coming with salads and a side,... More

My wife and I enjoyed an excellent meal at Carrabba's Italian Grill in Fayetteville. We were greeted in a friendly manner, promptly seated, and met by a cheerful and knowledgeable server. The pace of the meal was superb and our food of high quality and well prepared - and delicious! I can't say enough good things about our server Dawn.... More

Me and the wife went to Carrabba's last weekend for dinner. Our dining experience was much better than our last visit. We were promptly seated, and our server (Alex) came right over and took our drink order. We ordered the calamari as an appetizer to share, which was very good. We ordered the pasta wiese, and the prosciutto wrapped shrimp... More

The pasta bar is the best place to sit! Not only do you get excellent service, delicious food and a great view of the chefs, it's the chefs that really make it special. We have been to this location at least once a month for the past year. We are planning to move out of the area so we have... More

Each time I return to Carrabba's I find something new to try. I have never been disappointed with the service or the quality of the food. Cararabba's is the best place for a special occasion.

What I love about the south is that everyone is so overly friendly and nice, however that didn't carry over to this spot. The waitress seemly offbeat, probably ready to go home, tired. Even the party next to us asked if the waitress seemed bothered or didn't want to be there. We agreed something wasn't right. Which is a shame.... More

We've been to this Carrabba's twice. Both experiences provided terrible service and really mediocre food. Worst part is, it's not super cheap either. For a comparable price you could get MUCH better food at Little Italy in Fayetteville. Service: Waitresses seem like high school girls who aren't very interested in genuinely taking care of their customers. Both visits here, our... More

Always packed, seems to take forever to get your food. It's not the best Italian restaurant in town. I'd recommend several others first.

Good service, choices of seating arrangements, adequate parking. Food was good Italian fare. Good portions and all you can eat bread with oil dipping for flavor.

The wait was 10-15 minutes, so I just grabbed an empty seat at the kitchen counter. It took a second for a server to pick me up as it seems to be kind of whoever comes along and wants to take counter customers, but from then on, she provided excellent service. The food was all excellent and fresh as well.... More
