“Great food, excellent wine list, friendly staff”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

It was enjoyable from the moment I arrived, sitting at the "kitchen" counter area, kibitzing with the chefs and have a taste or two while I started on my cocktail. Homestyle minestrone soup, pasta and superb grilled fillet. All quite reasonably priced; friendly wait staff.

“Cheesy”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Setting is very poor. I disliked the food and from my table seating 6 no one was happy with their order either. Overpriced.

“Was not impressed with the food at all”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

I ordered the shrimp scampi and it tasted like it was sitting in the fridge for a week. It had that fishy nasty taste to it and it was not good at all. Went with 3 other people and none of their food came out as we expected it to. The chef came out to ask us what was wrong with the dishes and we explained and he was very arrogant acting like it was the best food anyone could ever eat. Will not return for a second chance.

“Carrabba's Italian Grill”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

We have been here several times. The food is really good and the portions are large. The service is fine, mainly college students. Better than the other Italian chain restaurants.
