“Not my favorite Carraba's”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

This location is smaller than the typical Carraba's and on one occasion did not have the advertised special on its menu.
For the money, I would drive 30 minutes to the Bowie location, which has better service and food seems better.
If I want Italian and don't want to drive, I'd rather head to Bella Napoli or Piazza Italia (depending on what I wanted to eat).

“Food is okay.”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

This place is good but they rush you in and out like a herd of cattle. Before you are finished your salad your main course if there. I once ask if they could delay the main course for a bit. It was all done at the same time and it was obviously they nuked my lasagne. It was terrible. They waiter/waitress is required to put the order in all at one time. I do not like being rushed during my dining experience. Also I am not fond of the young hostess. The restaurant could be empty and they will sit you in the smallest booth or the corner. WTH! Stupid.

“Carrabbas used to be great. Their portions have skrunk and its a rip off now.”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

Used to visit here all the time. Our latest trips through the past year or so, we've noticed the salads have shrunk. The Pasta Carrabba dish has been almost split in half. I included a picture of the Pasta Carrabba dish. ITS SAD I PAID $14 FOR THAT. WILL NOT RETURN.
