All of the staff were very friendly and helpful especially since it was our first visit and needed more time to make decisions, obtain recommendations and answer questions. The menu was limited but provided sufficient alternatives for all participants. The food was very good in presentation, taste and quantity. The service was very pleasant and appropriately attentive throughout our meal... More

Had a birthday celebration with 8 people last weekend. We were seated at a small round table that made things tight. Our fault for not moving, but we did have reservations. The food is standard fare. Good as all Carrabba's I've been to. My complaint is that as soon as we sat down they were taking orders. Fine, but don't... More

There were several reasons to not give Carrabas a five but here are my thoughts. Wife and I got the Monday special, Lasagna, salad, desert ($12.99) and sirloin, calamari and veg. (15.99). My steak was a little chewy but very tasty with a nice cheese sauce and the gelato was not like the European version. The prices and the serving... More

This was the day we arrived in Raleigh and did not eat lunch, so we were ravenous by the time we arrived at Carrabba's for dinner. We've enjoyed the Carrabba's back home, so we figured we could depend on good food and we were not disappeared. I enjoyed the lasagne and my wife got the Fettuccine Carrabba. This location differs...

I've been to this location at least a half a dozen times and I have yet to be disappointed. The service, food and overall experience is consistently very good. The staff provides good service without smothering you. The food arrives cooked exactly how you expect it and the selection is wide enough to please a wide range of people.

So, this is where my daughter wanted to go for her birthday dinner. Food was tasty, reasonably well presented, but, kind of exactly what you would expect from a chain Italian restaurant. I will say the appetizer (calamari) was crisp and light, not greasy, so there is some skill in kitchen, just very little "flair". Its serviceable and pretty reliable,... More

I have not been to Carraba's in at least 5 years and now I remember why. I found 3 positives in my dinner experience----the sanitation grade was 97 out of 100, the staff was polite and attentive, and the bread was warm and tasty. That says it all. My wine was served in an oversize glass with a very small... More
