The food here is always excellent. They have changed their menu and kept some of our favorites, and added some nice additions. Service is friendly, fast, and thoughtful. We usually go here when we want a "nicer dinner", with prices less than a steak house.

Frequent business trips to PVPP allow me to try various restaurants near Phoenix. Always at the top of choice list is Carrabba's Avondale. Whether craving pasta, salad or meat, this place never disappoints! I usually sit at kitchen bar; to watch action of plates & dishes shuffling in managed chaos for meal ideas. No brainer for me to always start... More

Great place for lunch. Reasonable prices, great selection and good service was our experience recently. We all had different entrees. I had pizza margarita that was very flavorful. My companions ordered spaghetti and meatballs, pasta with shrimp and spinach in a cream sauce and steak sandwich! Very generous lunch portions. Everyone loved their choices. We definitely return soon.

I love this restaurant! My family loves the food and the atmosphere is family oriented. Excellent service with amazing food. The Sicilian chicken soup is the best!!! You won't be disappointed, we never are.

Was at Carrabba's (again) in early January 2017..all 4 of us sat at Bar like chairs overlooking the kitchen - comfortable chairs and no waiting time to sit there at all..it was great to see the staff at work preparing the meals and also got treated to a complimentary appetizer.

We were glad to see a Carrabba's near our hotel as the one in Albuquerque closed several years ago. Our server Kyle was very good and the food well as well.

Decided that we would go to dinner with two of our best friends for an early night out on New Years and we picked Carrabas Italian Grill. The place was not yet full as we visited it around 4 PM and we ended up staying for three hours. The place was spotless and the wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable... More

We dine here every couple of months. Everything is good especially the bread and olive oil they provide with every meal but the star of the show here is pasta weezie. Shrimp with mushrooms and capers in a Alfredo sauce. Try it once and you'll never order anything else.

Located just off of McDowell and right around the corner from all the hustle and bustle of traffic you will find yourself inside of a nice Italian dinning establishment, with real pictures of the family that started this Chain and pictures of Italy, etc on the walls, low lights. The food is very good, fresh, and a lot of it... More
