“Always Excellent”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

To me Carrabba's is one of the most consistant restaurants in Knoxville. They have managed to keep their prices reasonable and their food quality is always the same. Great service and perfect timing on all the courses.

“what's happened to Carabas?”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

One of our favorite local spots. Yes, a franchise, but we have truly enjoyed for many years. Last night, with two couples, was the second bummer this month. I had my fav, Tag Pic Pac with chicken. The Pichi Pacchiu sauce (which requires 10 minutes of garlic cooked in olive oil, then with Roma tomatoes added) was watered, no garlic or olive oil, with canned chopped tomatoes ... Prior visit I ordered filet Bryan med rare. Bummer, full of gristle and bloody rare. Dumb me for ordering a filet in an Italian restaurant. So last night, back to the ole dependable pasta.

“Surprisingly good”

I thought it was another Olive Garden but its fresh clean taste is a cut above. Planning to try the PEI mussel appetizer on my next visit.

“Love Carrabba's!”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

This was our favorite restaurant for years. Ate here a lot when we both worked. My husband traveled a lot and we would rendevous here for happy hour. Delicious bread and the best dipping herbs in town. They have the best halibut in Knoxville when it is available. Delicious salads made fresh when ordered. Never had a bad meal here. Favorite dish is Chicken Brian. Always excellent service and fresh ingredients. Great place to eat.
