We have been to may Carrabba's. This is the first visit to this location and probably my last. Every other time we have been to Carrabba's the food and the service has been excellent. The service was good, but the food was very lacking. There were three of us and none of us was particularly happy with our food. I... More

Bright lights, noisy, littered and lacking in 'professional' service...my how my perception has changed since my last visit to a Carraba's (Arizona). Greeted by a hostess with zero etiquette and lackluster enthusiasm, and facing a crowded dining room of tables full of loud, sloppy diners...I should have walked away immediately. My meal was overcooked (pork tenderloins charred like bbq briquettes)... More

We were lucky enough to be seated immediately and had a wonderful waitress. She was quick and attentive. Meal was really good.

I hadn't been to Carrabbass for lunch before and wasn't disappointed. The service was good and food choices excellent. We had a difficult time choosing since there was such a variety. We finally chose the Caprese sandwich and a steak sandwich with Italian sodas. We munched on warm bread as we waited. My steak sandwich came with Asparagus as my... More

Had some $ left on a gift card that was actually for another place, but could also be used @ Carrabbas. My daughters & I decided to give it a try. What a nice surprise. Walked in & the smell was wonderful! Immediately made you hungry. Everything sounded good, so it was hard to choose. Everything we got was delicious.... More

Not over impressed. I've been to other Carrabbas before, but service here was below par. I've never experienced being told to leave a restaurant when I'm mid meal !!! Food was fine actually but service left an unpleasant taste

If you happen to have been raised in an Italian family where food is the center of family gatherings, this chain is just okay. As with other so called Italian restaurants (Olive Garden), I find the dishes mostly tasteless. Adding hot pepper to a pasta dish doesn't necessarily make it good. It seems that many of their dishes are packaged... More

I had dinner with my husband and my 11/13 year old boys. The service was OK, the food was OK. There is a new menu and the small plate items were very bland and my meatballs were cold. I felt dinner was on the pricey side. I probably will not return. There are much better Italian restaurants at the same... More

The new decor is sleek, but still warm and friendly and the new menu keeps some favorites and adds some diet and food allergy-friendly options, while keeping the great flavor. We were pleased that the quality of the food prep had improved greatly since our last visit, loved the new food choices and some of the favorites we've always liked.... More
