Authentic Italian but not overpowering menu items. Minestrone soup is ideal. Steak, pasta, salads are outstanding. Olive oil with bread basket is awesome.

I have become quite the fan of Carrabba's. I am usually (sometimes unfairly so) skeptical of any chain restaurants, especially Italian chains. However, my meals at Carrabba's are always tasty and satisfying! They have a lot of great options on their menu. Their food tastes freshly made, as opposed to reheated. I also really like their cocktail menu! Recommended dishes:... More

For a chain restaurant, Carrabba's is particularly good. The drinks are excellent and the food is even better. Our table tried a variety of dishes and everyone was very happy with their choices. Excellent food and excellent service.

I love the whole fresh concept of Carrabba's. I am anxious to try their new revised menu but until then one of my current favorites is their Chicken Bryan. On this particular occasion we ordered appetizers only and were very pleased. The wait staff is friendly and accommodating and the food is very tasty. I have to drive over an... More

Went for a family dinner for our son's 30th birthday. The food was really good! May be a little pricey but we went with a 20% coupon so it balanced out. 3 out of 5 adults brought home leftovers because we couldn't eat it all. The waitress was awesome. Our 4 yr old grandson was with us and she brought... More

I've been there twice since they remodeled and changed their menu. This most recent time, we made a 6:30 reservation for three people. We arrived at 6:30, informed them about our reservation, and were told it would just be a minute. At 6:50, we had to ask again. During that time, all the people that had been waiting when we...

I love their spaghetti and meatballs (3). The portion has gotten smaller over the years but I don't think the price has risen much so it's all good. They serve warm Italian bread with olive oil. I recommend the house salad to go with your spaghet. The creamy parmesan (house) dressing is delicious. I also recommend their Pasta Weesie and... More

First time there since they remodeled. They now have a new limited menu which has eliminated a lot of favorites. I have to admit the steak was good, but loved their fried zucchini appetizer which is gone along with the calamari sauce and baked raviolis, among others. Will not return until these items are returned to menu.

We have been to this restaurant a number of times. The menu looks like it has had many changes. We like it. They offer a number of small plates. Our server was very good and friendly. Our food was served quickly and hot. We will return.

Service was friendly, and accommodating to my large group for a birthday dinner. The food was delicious and portions were generous. Overall it wasn't a bad experience and I would go back, and recommend it to others.
