Description: On December 26, 1986, The Original Carrabba's opened its doors. Today, Johnny Carrabba and his family are proud that the two original locations on Kirby Drive and Voss Road remain family owned and operated neighborhood restaurants. What makes us unique are the quality ingredients that go into each dish along with our lively and warm dining experiences. At The Original Carrabba's, we have an open kitchen and we take enormous pride in our food. Our pizza dough is made fresh every day and our pizzas are cooked in a wood-burning oven. We fillet our own fish daily, make fresh homemade pasta, and we even hand stuff our own signature Cappelletti. Even our fresh milk mozzarella is hand made. Our steaks, chops and seafood are all cooked over a wood-burning grill. Johnny's father, Mr. C. still mixes his own secret spices and makes his own Italian sausage for our restaurants. The Original Carrabba's on Kirby Drive and Voss Road is where people come together to eat, celebrate, share stories, share meals and share many laughs and memories. We look forward to you and your family joining us at our table.

The food is excellent. We visit here everytime we're in Houston. They have just completed a massive rennovation (New building.).
You won't be disappointed.
This is owned by Johnny Carraba and is not your typical franchise Carraba's.

Believe it or not, Rosie Carrabba's on Voss is my new favorite steak house! Their filet mignon is best I've tasted--melt in your mouth goodness. We dine here regularly.

Carrabbas on Voss is among the best Italian bistros in Houston. It is consistently good and a fun place to go. Rose runs this place like a swiss watch.
