We love this place, the prices are good, the happy hour is good, the food is good. They have one of the best gluten free menus and that is always a plus in my book. Had the Tuscan steak with mashed potatoes and they have the best GF soup. They didn't have great seafood which my husband wasn't too happy... More

It has to be said previous visits here have been pleasant , but as ever the server makes a difference. A meal, especially one purporting an Italian experience should be taken at a slow pace, Carrabas should learn this , and not make it a race to to get bums on and off seats .

I am a regular customer of Carrabba's in Texas and love their menu and quality of food. I frequent the original Carrabba's in Houston, Texas and thought for sure that the quality of the food would take a downward turn as the locations stretched further away from Houston. I was wrong....the food at the Bradenton location was great. Thanks for... More

Carrabba's menu has wide variety of traditional Italian favorites and new ones to meet lighter, fresher tastes. Soups are plump with veggies, pasta, broth goodness. Then choose crisp salads, usually three kinds, and don't skimp on the warm, crusty bread with olive oil and spices. Desserts will top off the evening or luncheon.... Choose house wines, their featured selections or... More

Stopped in for lunch and the food was great. We had the lunch specials (1/2 sandwich, soup) and it was enough food where we left full. Our waitress (Ashley T.) was the best, she was quick, friendly and very efficient.

Was at the Carrabba's with my golf group for lunch on Jan 20th (Friday) at about 11:30AM. Restaurant was empty at the time. That should have been a clue. My complaint with this restaurant is concerning the horrible service at the Management level. After paying for the meal with a credit card, we left and I forgot to pick up... More

We met some friends for dinner and had a pleasant evening. The food and service was good as usual. I did get served the wrong beer but was quickly changed when I brought it to the waiter's attention.
