We've been to quite a few Carraba's but this one didn't quite make the grade. From the oil and herbs bread spread, to our entree's-it was just bland and not flavorful like usual. Service was good but the food was not up to par. My Chicken Bryan was ok but the Alfredo was bland, as well as the chicken parmigiana... More

I strictly avoid any Italian chain restaurant because the food is about as authentic as Taco Bell is Mexican. This is ironic since I have found the best place to eat in Germany is at almost any Italian restaurant, and even the roadside rest stops have great food in Italy. However, I have to say that Carrabba's is normally an... More

Met our best friends to celebrate my best friends birthday....Was seated promptly....Our waitress was sweet, attentive and quick. Job well done. The restaurant was very clean and the location is very accessible off 295 N. The good was so freaking good.... I would suggest trying the Arancini. This is a must go to ....

I rarely give 5 . But the service here is over the top. I read the other reviews and decided to give them a try. I was impressed. And the 15% discount for staying at the Hampton Inn next door is a plus !! The lady floor manager was amazing and Joe the bartender, along with Tim, my waiter, were... More

The location of this restaurant is right next to Hamptons hotel. No need to drive you can just walk. The waitresses were very friendly, out food came so quickly. Everything was very hood. Also don't forget if you stay at Hampton's, you get 15% off of your check with your room card. You will enjoy lunch or dinner here.

The lunch menu is great. The asparagus wrapped in prosciutto was a delicious appetizer. The lasagna was good, but on the lighter side proportion wise. The strawberry rose sangria was light and refreshing. The dessert of Tiramisu was the best of endings to a great lunch.

We consider this to be on of the best restaurants in the area. The food is ALWAYS excellent as is the service. Any of their menu items are very good - we are especially fond of the grilled fish selections, pork chops and Chicken Bryan.

This is my second visit to Carrabba's Italian Grill and I am happy to report that my wife and I had an excellent time. It was the Amore Monday's that brought me back. We very much enjoyed the Meatballs & Ricotta Small Plate and the Sirloin steak. We chose the spicy Sicilian Butter (which was very spicy) and enjoyed it... More

Besides our dinner being so tasty, our waitress was the absolutely the best. And come to find out she had only been waiting tables for 2 weeks. Before that she was the hostess. If you ever come here you need to insist that Emily waits on you...you won't be disappointed.
