I ordered a salad...something like Rocco's seafood salad. It was small and nothing but lettuce and a few scallops and shrimp. The seafood was well cooked, but for $18 I expected more......a lot more. My husband got the steak and was delighted. Our friends got...More

This was our first visit to this chain Italian restaurant and we were not impressed. The pizza was served barely warm and was undersized for the price they charge and it was not tasty. The seafood Alfredo was overwhelmed with garlic. The calamari we ordered...More

It has been years since I've been to a Carrabba's. It was not what any of us expected: Waiter was a bit on the slow side, appetizer (mussels) was undercooked, cold, not edible, waiter was told and nothing was done about it. Likewise a side...More

We stopped in for a late lunch and got an appetizer and the chicken trio to share. The food was amazing! I was very surprised how perfectly cooked and delicious all three were! Great service, fantastic food and a new favorite lunch stop for us!

Some of the best pasta we've ever tasted! And great drinks. Also they can accommodate very large parties. Highly recommend!

We enjoyed our family dinner there. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The dishes were traditionally Italian and I realize that they are part of a chain. Restaurant was crowded but not overly noisy.
