Carrabba's is a quite popular restaurant in Lakeland. Usually, the service is attentive and friendly. The food is quite good, however the overall impression would be improved 100% by binning the pityfully poor, dried parmesan and using freshly grated instead. The Marsala Chicken is recommendable.

First, the Filet was the oddest tasting/looking filet I've ever seen. And it took them 3 tries to get the temperature as I requested. Other than that, the food was good and the service was very good.
