As always, I had a very nice meal at Carrabba's Italian Grill in Roanoke. The service was fast and friendly and the price was good.

Carrabba's has enough variety to always make it interesting. Quality of food is good, and so is the service. I'm not usually big on chain restaurants, but this is one I will return to because I know I'll get a good meal with good service at a fair price.

I have never had a bad meal nor a bad time eating at Carrabba's. I had CAVATAPPI FRANCO and the wife had SALMON CETRIOLINI. We were both stuffed. But we still had room for BRÛLÉE RICOTTA CHEESECAKE. What a night!

First of all, I'll tell you that the servers and staff were very friendly. However, got a small plate with a cold meatballs.(obviously something premade and reheated. Lasagna was $16. I was not very impressed with the taste or price. Overall, I was very disappointed.

Our food should always be hot, fresh, and made-from-scratch, and it sounds like we missed the mark. We'd like to review this further if you could please take a moment to send me an email at homeoffice@carrabbas.com with the subject "TripAdvisor - Roanoke, VA". We can then correspond directly over email. Sincerely, Madeline Carrabba's Italian Grill More

This is one of the better examples of Italian food in a chain restaurant. Good selection of dishes, other than the old tired basics. Well prepared dishes in a wide variety. Not just chicken, veal, and pasta.

We ate here on a busy Friday night. I was expecting a wait, but we were seated immediately. Our server was excellent. She kept bread on the table and our glasses full. We had the sirloin with the spicy butter and the prosciutto wrapped shrimp. The shrimp was a little overcooked and rubbery but tasted good. The steaks were absolutely... More

Came in for happy hour on Thursday with friends and just ended up getting appetizers and drinks. The appetizers were perfectly prepared to the point I stopped on way out to tell the manager. The wings for instance were hands down the best wings I've had at a restaurant. The wings were just cooked enough for meat to be done... More

Monday night dinner with wife and grandson. Seated immediately. Ordered small sirloin steak with asparagus and minestrone soup. Grandson had chicken parmigiana and wife had salmon. All were very good. Service was excellent. Price reasonable. Will surely return.
