Fantastic! I would give it 6 stars if I could. We were just driving through Beaumont and stopped for dinner. We almost didn't go to Carrabbas because it looked so full (which should have been a good sign, but we didn't want a long wait). To our surprise they sat us immediately and service was impeccable. For such a full restaurant they were on the ball with everything. Drinks and bread were brought quickly and never ran low. Appetizers came out in under 5 minutes, soups followed seamlessly after, and the entree was on the table right when we finished the soups. Food was great, a step above normal Italian chain restaurants, and a good value - lots of food for the price. Our waiter Matt was phenomenal. He really paid attention to the little details and almost anticipated our wants. He even brought out a plate with pizza dough, cheese and pepperoni for our daughter to play with and design a pizza, which he cooked in their wood oven for her - all free. And when he packaged the rest of our entrees up (there was a ton of food!) he brought us out some fresh bread with oil and spices to take with us. The atmosphere was wonderful - very family friendly. And the bathrooms were great - clean and lavender scented. Overall a great experience! We'll definitely be back!

Not only is the food terrific, but the service is outstanding. Our server Jessica kept the pace of the meal exactly the right tempo. We both had the Classic Italian dinner which is Lasagna and Chicken Parmesan and soup or salad and a side dish. Warm Italian bread was brought to the table just after we were seated also. We decide that the portions are too big for each of us so we will split dinner next time. It will be difficult to decide what to share though.

I am a bit of an Italian food snob so I can be a bit critical. Coming from the NE most pizza shops have better pasta than most nice Italian restaurants in Texas. However if you are looking for solid Italian food in Beaumont this is a good place to go. Good entres and apps with good examples of the traditional favorites.

Consistency! Their fried calamari app is stellar as is the bread and XVOO mix presented as soon as seated. It is absolutely the BEST restaurant bread in Beaumont. Pollo Rosa Maria is an outstanding choice as is Chicken Bryan. Pastas, veal piccata, chicken parm, Caesar salad, etc. are included as usual suspects. This place is always crowded; however, the wait time is reasonable. Welcoming ambiance and reliable, courteous service await.

A few years ago the service was so bad and food was cold and they had no idea what wine went with what. The place was messy. Staff could care less.

Time Warp to today
Service is actually pretty darn good. Food was served hot. Attentive wait staff. Food had good flavor and looked appetizing. Hate when its slopped out like hash and it wasn't. Didn't want to push the wine thing so enjoyed lots of iced tea.
