This is OK. They take AARP discounts. V's Italiano or Tuscano' s in Buckner is way better. It's Ok and a little pricey but they do have Arnold Palmer's (Ice Tea and Lemonade) that are great.

The food at this restaurant is okay, but not great Italian food. They have set recipes and trying to get alterations, e.g. substituting garlic and olive oil for tomato sauce, is met with skepticism by the wait staff. I had a corkscrew pasta dish with chicken, mushrooms, olives and tomatoes. The dish was kind of bland and skimpy on the... More

Good food but no bread/breadsticks served and a bit pricey. Portions are not huge but, after the salad, I could only manage half of chicken marsala with fettucine alfredo.

Only good thing about this place was the wine! Terrible service, food lacks flavir, and they couldn't seem to get the order straight. We will not be going back.

Dinners range from 13.95 and up. The food is really good and there is always left overs to take home. Our server was not too friendly, but the meal was good.

Terrific Italian food with an awesome kids menu and great customer service. Wood fired pizza and freshly baked bread are a great pairing. The chocolate hazelnut gelato is delicious and if you ask nicely, the three scoops can be split into two or three bowls for each family member to enjoy individually!

I always take my family to this place for special occasions. We all love it! There isn't one thing we have been disappointed with, and we have been quite a few times. Though it's a little on the pricy side, it's usually always worth it.

Tuesday night is the small plates special at Carrabba's. You can sample a choice of three for only $12.00. For me, it was easily a full meal. I had the grilled asparagus, meatballs, and Italian lettuce wraps. Wine is also half price if you can get there during happy hour. Food at Carrabba's Italian Grill is always tasty, fresh, and...
