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...

We've been to Carrabbas' numerous times. Food is always great, service - it depends. We come for food. This is not smothered in cheese Italian food - and that's a good thing. Pizza is great, calamari is well seasoned, I love the Cesar salad and soups .Prices are reasonable, drinks as well. I haven't tried the desserts (pity, they look... More

So, we looked online and saw the Tasting Tuesday promotion, had a rare Tuesday evening with no teenagers, so we decided to go up and try. We sat at the bar. There was only one other person at the bar. I... More

We went for my birthday and it is some of the best Italian food I have ever had! Shrimp fettuccine is amazing! Bacon and caramelized onion flatbread appetizer was great. And our server was the friendliest and kindest server I had ever had! Had to wait about 20 minutes for a table but totally worth the wait. It is on... More

Kristen was our server, very sweet and attentive to our needs without being pushy or annoying. I had the Cavatappi Franco.....I could eat this every day!!! Amazing... More

The food here was really pretty average. Honestly, I would go to Olive Garden instead next time. The value is better at Olive Garden.
