My daughter brought me take out to the hotel where we were staying. Asked for very well done steak. Got a medium rare steak. Will not go to this Carrabba's again. But other Carrabba's I have been to are much better.

The service was excellent and the waitress was very cordial. The food was very average though and there are much better Italian restaurants.

Service was good, the Buffalo Mozzarella salad was good, the calamari was so-so. The pasta was quite bland- not like home made.More

We had a large group, and the wait staff seemed genuinely bit disorganized. Two different waitresses came for our drink orders. Then it was 15 minutes before the drinks came. Drinks were unceremoniously plunked down without any comment or acknowledgement from the waitress before she...More
