Ate dinner here the other night and it was very busy with a 20 minute wait. The restaurant is crowded and busy. If Travel Advisor had a 3 and a half star rating that is where this would be. Had spaghetti with pomodoro sauce and while it was very good and was reasonably priced I thought the menu was a little pricey. The atmosphere is nice with a lot of waitstaff. However we did have to wait awhile for our check. Overall a good place to eat but if you want real Italian I would recommend one of Gainesville's local restaurants instead of a chain restaurant.

By Chef Boyardee and you will be happier with that!! This is horrible over priced slop, with surly wait staff and overcrowded dining room. You can't get the crack of dawn between some of the tables!!

Great selection of apetizers and Italian dishes. Visited with my extended family and everyone enjoyed the food and atmosphere.

When we are going out for a "special occasion" we always seem to gravitate to Carrabba's. The service is as good any any restaurant we have ever visited. The servers know the menu and can answer any question. The food is always great. My favorite is "Chicken Bryan", but anything on the menu is great. Start off with warm bread dipped in olive oil and seasonings. If you haven't been, try it.

This is a great place. Atmosphere is very good for dinner. We especially like sitting at bar & watching the Pizza Maker make fesh pizza's.
