Lots of good choices for Italian food, seafood, pastas and salads. I had the shrimp and scallops and was really good (with whole wheat pasta). Husband had the seafood stew which was good too. Comes with bread and choice of salad (nice selection to choose from) or soup. My Italian side salad was very good. Decent size portions. Good service... More

While experience took over 3 hours. Food was not great - bread was the only exception. Cold and smoky too. Go to Olive Garden instead.

This was a valentines date dinner. We called ahead and still waited almost an hour to be seated at 9. They said our number didn't work. Obvious that they forgot about us. I love to ask the server what they liked on the menu. He said "oh I don't eat here, oh I've tried stuff but ... I wouldn't eat... More

Took my mom here for her 75th birthday. We had fettuccine Carrabba and everyone enjoyed it. Very good. A lot better than Olive Garden.

I ordered a chicken wing appetizer which was surprisingly good. My rigatoni Campagnolo was great. My wife ordered pork tenderloin and she said it needed more seasoning but was otherwise ok. She wasn't crazy about her side salad. We both loved the chicken soup I had for a side. One of the best restaurant soups I have ever ate. My... More

We arrived at the height of Christmas shopping. They said a 30min wait. It ended up being 15 minutes and they were very fast getting our excellent dinners! Clam linguini is the best!

My wife and I really enjoy Carrabbas Italian Grill. On this visit the food and drink was great. We did however have our server Nate spill a nearly full glass of water on my wife. Now I understand spills happen. I was just not impressed by the way the manager handled it when he made his visit to help clear... More
