Took my previous boss and good friend out for his birthday lunch. We were both eating healthy so he and I both had the strawberry salad with salmon and it was delicious. Shared some coffee and he had his usual espresso. Great service,

We ordered the take-out and were not disappointed. Unlike many places that put effort into take-out orders, Carrabba's did. Our portions were large, warm, and well-priced. would highly recommend.

Overall these are nice places. This one is OK. Service is a little slow and you get the impression of indifference, and the application of the menu selections is eh.

Carrabba's has been in our regular rotation for a while now, mostly because my wife is addicted to their gluten-free Chicken Bryan. Today I had one of their Amore Monday specials... Fettucine Weesie, with an Italian salad and the Meatballs and Ricotta Small Plate for a starter. The meatballs were warm at best (not hot) and kind of bland, but... More

Smaller than most Carrabba's with same pretty good food. We ordered soup and some small appetizers. The soup was served lukewarm so we sent it back to be reheated. When it came back our bowl of soup was about 1/2 bowl of soup so they did bring out another cup to make up the difference. The meatball and stuffed mushrooms... More

This place has gone dramatically downhill. The food is dry, the service is terrible, and they have raised their prices. The fettuccini had virtually no sauce on it. The chicken parm needed sauce. The worst part was the service. The waiter was virtually invisible. We will never go back.
