When I saw that picture of a giant meatball sitting on top of spaghetti with cheese oozing out I knew my husband would love this and he did. It was amazing. The meatball was cooked in panko breadcrumbs so it is a bit crunchy which we like. However, this place needs to dial down on the lighting. Way too bright.... More

The service is really good. The food is freshly prepared and very tasty. Ciopinno with linguini is very good. Try also the pizza. I have been visiting the restaurant for many years now and I recommend it.

Sadly Carrabba's has fallen victim to its success. What used to be a dining experience reminiscent of the original Carrabba's has become just another chain restaurant. Portions are smaller, plates are smaller, service was disappointing. I wish I could say I'll be back, but I won't.

I absolutely crave the bread and oil here. It is a delightful treat that pairs excellent with the pasta

The food, wine, and servers were great. Had a relaxing unrushed meal, and left full and happy. I loved the spicy chicken soup. It was very good. Just wish I would have had room for dessert.

I met a friend there for lunch. We had great service and good food. I'd hadn't been there for a while, but I'll go back to try more of the menu.

Good experience overall, tasty food, reasonable price, good service. I keep asking the shrimp and scallop spiedino with a side order of Fetucini Alfredo. Soooo good! Portions are big, so I usually do not order dessert, but they are good too. Be careful, appetizers are also big. I once order a bruschette (under the "small plate" title in the menu)... More

Be sure to ask about the specials while dining at Carabba’s. They always have something going on! We tried the special this evening. We had the grilled sirloin steak, lobster ravioli, and garlic mashed potatoes. DELICIOUS! In addition, Carabba’s offered $10.00 off any bottle of wine for the entire month. Service was excellent, and the price was right. We found... More

I was there last 13th March and I tried the new MENU and it was superb! Service was outstanding and the food all wonderful. New asparagus wrapped with prosciuto, the pranws brochette, and of course, the extra virgin olive oil they put on the table to dip bread on it: beautiful clean olive flavour and balanced taste, unpeppery, no bittter...

We called ahead a few days to let them know we would have a party of 20. They called back the day of our visit to confirm. I appreciated that. We were seated immediately as they were ready when we arrived. The food was excellent, steaks, pasta, soups, appetizers, etc... Too many items to go through. They kept 2 servers... More
