Took my wife to Carrabba's one night to try it out. The restaurant itself wasn't very busy and the service was kind of slow. We tried several things and as usual with these chain Style restaurants, they always serve you pasta that has been under the heat lamp way too long! As a professional chef, it doesn't take but a...

Several of us got together after looking at wedding gowns with my daughter-in-law (to be). Everyone was tired and hungry, the folks seated us right away as we trickled in one and two at a time. They were amazingly efficient and warm. The food was really good and, although I didn't realize it until after, they have Monday night specials!... More

For the holidays we received a gift card, good for Carrabba's. Not having been there for a few years we went. Although the restaurant seemed to be busy, we were seated immediately and handed menu's. 20 minutes later we saw our waiter, although he had passed our table several times. We noticed a special on the menu, but the menu... More

Always a great dining experience. Food is very good and the service is always great! Atmosphere is enjoyable. We love the warm bread. The fettuccini Alfredo is better here than other Italian restaurants. I also enjoy the Marsala sauce with steak.

Had not been to this location/restaurant in years. The chef must be amazing - the food was soooooo good! Great service too - clean and noticed the food looked like it was prepared with care and not rushed like most commercialized restaurants 👍🏻 btw the sparking apple sangri was fabulous!

Just had dinner here with my wife and her mother . The food was excellent as were the portions, but it was a bit pricey . Glad my mother in law treated us to dinner. Will definitely come here again.

This is OK. They take AARP discounts. V's Italiano or Tuscano' s in Buckner is way better. It's Ok and a little pricey but they do have Arnold Palmer's (Ice Tea and Lemonade) that are great.

The food at this restaurant is okay, but not great Italian food. They have set recipes and trying to get alterations, e.g. substituting garlic and olive oil for tomato sauce, is met with skepticism by the wait staff. I had a corkscrew pasta dish with chicken, mushrooms, olives and tomatoes. The dish was kind of bland and skimpy on the... More
