We met some friends for dinner and had a pleasant evening. The food and service was good as usual. I did get served the wrong beer but was quickly changed when I brought it to the waiter's attention.

Today December 18 th 2016 after visiting the UTC mall which has several good restaurants I decided to take my wife out for lunch at Carrabas on University Parkway. Before I placed my order from the lunch menu which was displayed in a small wooden case with the dinner menus at the entrance of the restaurant, I asked the hostess... More

They were really lost. It took us over an hour and a half to be served. They girl we had for a server seemed overwhelmed. Kept blaming the kitchen for taking so long. Did offer us a free dessert on her. We were not the only table to be making comments. Once we got our food it was great. Its... More

This is a no soul franchise restaurant. It smells relly great, the pasta is soft over-cooked, the Pizza is a no go. Go to a real italian place instead...

The Pina coladas were excellent! We also had lasagna and zucchini frittata. Our waitress was super friendly and attentive.

Busy area but this was a haven from the traffic. Make sure you stop by. Service was perfect and a small plate and salad was great for lunch.

Most often I eat a late lunch which will also be my dinner. Today I stopped at Carrabba’s on Cortez Road in Bradenton, FL for just such a meal. As I perused the menu I saw an ad for rib eye steak. Oh, do I dare order a steak in an Italian restaurant or stay with a dish I know... More

Ahh, the bread that makes you ask for more. Lunch portions big enough to share. We enjoy the atmosphere, though this one is located in a older area that may make you think twice if coming in in the evening. This is our first time to this one and will stop by again when we are in town.
