This was my first time at Carrabba's, and I was there for a lunch interview. Ordered a soup sandwich combo and it turned out soo good, words cant describe it. Carrabbas is now on my list of best Italian places to eat!!!

Have dined at other locations; however, this Carrabba's treated their guests with 5 star attention. We went there for lunch and even though they were busy, we were seated right away and were offered the specials of the day. Soon after we had our drinks and our appetizer was presented with extra plates and cutlery. The food was good and... More

The Chicken Bryan was so tender-- I could cut it with my fork. It truly is my favorite dish--so very good. The service was great! We will be back!

Food was great! Service was a little slow even though it was not busy. Make sure to make a reservation.

Much better than Olive Garden, with a wide selection of Italian staples. Had the impression some of the entrees were previously frozen. Good for families, not so much for grownups.

Have eaten at other locations in this chain, but this one, although busy when we arrived (good indication), we were seated in a decent amount of time and the food came quickly and correctly. Place was clean, well lit and efficient. BTW, each entree was prepared to perfection. Kudos!

We went here recently Friday for date night dinner. Yes we did arrive late at 8:30 but when we arrive at the restaurant seemed pretty dirty from a packed evening. We were never served bread. The waitress helped us order a specialty dinner and it was very good. We also got an appetizer that was not the best. Once we... More

My best friend and I went for lunch and we ordered the Design You Own pizza. She had Pepperoni with a small side salad. I ordered pizza with Mushrooms, Meatballs and Dried Tomatoes. I had sweet tea with lemon. We also had Gelato (which was to die for) for dessert. The waiter was efficient, even though a little bit sarcastic.... More

As long as you understand that you are no visiting or paying for a gourmet, top of the line restaurant you should love the food here. The service is usually very good and the food is fresh and very good. The menu doesn't change much other that some specials and because they like to move fast they have some thing... More

I visited Carrabba's frequently while in Orlando but this was a first for this location and I was not disappointed. We ordered calamari as an appetizer with bread. I like my calamari a little more spicy but this was good. My wife had the chicken parmesan and I had the Carrabba's Italian classic for my entrée. The chicken parmesan was... More
