We always enjoy Carrabba's, but my husband was disappointed that the "meatball" entree is a dinner only item. Otherwise what we had was very good and the service was too. I would critique what we ordered but I only remember the wine!

We love Carrabbas! Our local restaurant is so friendly and clean. Marina, our server, is knowledgeable and always fun and competent. Tonight we had Spiedino di Mare (scallops and shrimp grilled with lemon butter and breadcrumbs) and a brick oven pizza with pepperoni, mushrooms and red peppers. Delicioso!! Great Happy Hour until 7 pm. Perroni's and the house red wine... More

As always, we experienced excellent service and good food. Sadly, this restaurant was remodeled not too long ago which changed the decor from an Italian restaurant, to something more like a bus station. The serving portions have gotten noticeably smaller (which strangely, was not reflected in the price.) When asked why, we were told that it was to accommodate those... More

It's a chain restaurant, so to me it's average. I like restaurants that serve authentic food with great flavor. We only went once and I wasn't impressed.

We have eaten at this particular Carrabbas for 20 years. The quality of the food has fallen dramatically. It is not Carrabbas that has fallen off, just this one. We eat at one in Clermont that is delicious. For the first time I sent my meal back at Carrabbas. Wet, runny, no flavor chicken Parmesan preceded by tasteless minestrone.

Had a business lunch here today. Menu items were not available. Such as the chicken soup, and ciabatta bread. Food was very slow making it to the table. Had an hour for lunch bit took 1 3/4 hr because of slow food service. The server did a good job keeping our drinks filled and bread on the table. My sandwich... More

We dine at our local Carrabbas a few times a month. The food is consistently delicious...hot, seasoned perfectly and pasta dishes cooked perfectly al dente. The servers in this restaurant are friendly and attentive.
