Although there is some variety on the menu, it didn't appeal to me as much as other Italian restaurants in the area. The general taste of the food was OK but not as good as other places. Seemed to be more bland, which is typical for a chain. The visit was OK but nothing to write home about. Next time... More

Excellent restaurant with fair prices. Much better than Olive Garden. Great atmosphere. Our waiter was superb. I've been to other Carabas but this is the best.

Wife and I each had a Monday special. She enjoyed the chicken in tomatoey pasta but my Chianti Chicken was a bit below par. Not bad, but no great taste. We enjoyed the appetizers more than the entries. The Bruschetta had a brilliant taste and the two meatballs were almost good enough to forget having a main course. Service is... More

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
