Great place, great food, and great service! Bridget our server was spot on! Rigatoni Martino, Pasta Weesie, Mezzaluna, and Johnmy Rocco Salad were all perfect.

Went here with family and everyone, including the baby had a great meal. The menu is delightfully varied and reasonably priced. We all got plenty to eat and had some left over to take home. Wait staff was friendly and efficient. Made for a very enjoyable evening out.

This restaurant is within 3 miles of our house. It's our "can't miss" spot when visitors come into town. They have a happy hour 4- 7pm. Service has always been great as is the food. This Carrabbas has a very friendly feeling and the manager, who shows legitimate interest, often stops by to chat.

Arrived at 4:00 p.m. we had never eaten here before and decided to try it for an early dinner. Waiter was ok but not very friendly. We asked a couple of questions about the menu then ordered. Salad was fresh and acceptable. Food was okay. Definitely over priced. Waiter explained he was the only one taking care of things and... More

We go there occasionally because I really enjoy their mussels although they have not been as succulent as last March which may have something to due with the season. The broth they are cooked in I delicious. There wood fired veal chop was very good and the price was reasonable for a veal chop. I don't think I would consider... More

Remarkable in the true sense of the word, that is " worthy of being or likely to be noticed especially as being uncommon or extraordinary" in how bad it was. Date of visit 9/26/16, seated at bar, party of two... Overbearing, mature server at the bar had a strange manner in approaching us and would stare. In need of nothing... More

Yes this is a chain restaurant also, but it stands out among the best. Good wholesome food and friendly service. Their Monday night specials are great and in season the place is packed. My wife and i enjoy their lunch specials when we are in Ft Myers. Highly recommended.

First off, it is very seldom that we eat at chain restaurants. We like to patronize local business' and find some great culinary experiences in some little out of the way place but............we got home last evening from Key West, hungry, tired and with a nearly empty refrigerator. The weather was stormy and being Labor Day, several of our "go... More
