We had a great lunch here with friends. I had the stuffed meatball. It was really good. The chocolate dessert was amazing! Service very good. We'll return!

Might not be authentic, but it has good flavors. The waitresses are really nice. The food is fresh. Some things on the menu are very good. Don't get the raviolis, they're no good. Better than Olive Garden

Tonight was our first time at this location and any Carrabba's Italian Grill in general. Interaction with hostesses was pleasant and we got seated right away, even though place was kind of busy.

My favorits meal here is the linguine positano (wood grilled chichen and linguine cooked with fresh basil, garlic, and crushed tomatoes)-it is absolutely bursting with flavor! I don't think I've ever had a bad meal here. The decor inside is elegant and I love the outdoor patio too.

Thoroughly enjoyed spicy wings, chicken marsala and asparagus. The two young ladies who provided service were excellent. Prompt, informative and always upbeat. Wish I lived closer, this would be a regular stop.

We had a fabulous waitress who offered recommendations on both food and drink. She was charming and very cheerful. Parking was a bit of an issue because they share a lot with another popular restaurant.

I love going to Carrabba's when I travel as there is not one in the city that I live near. The food is consistent from one store to the next and the food is great especially the calamari, it is never tough. I never eat lasagna anywhere else.
