“Food's a 5, service could be a tad bit better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

Great menu and the food is very good. Lentil soup and minestrone were both very good and the chicken marsala was very nice. Bread was very good also. Just need to step up the service a little bit as the service bar is getting higher and higher all the time and you have to keep up with the trend. Right next to a great value hotel, the Residence Inn, so stay there and walk across the street to Carrabba's.

“A Reliably Good Italian Restaurant Here in Florida”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

As this is a smaller chain of restaurants, we can only speak for this one, but as frequent travelers
to Italy, this place is quite authentic. We found their pizzas to be just excellent and very much the
traditional thin crust Italian style. They also make take out easy and convenient although it's basically a large comfortable dinner setting-even with an outdoor patio which is doggie friendly(important to us whikle travelling). The location here is just off the I-95 & W. Port St. Lucie interchange-near the Tradition ball park and nearby hotels. We also enjoyed their veal dinners, with good quality at most reasonable prices by comparison to many Italian restaurants in the area. Wine list is adequate, but would like to see more higher quality offerings at lower markups.

“Blackberry Sangria, Fresh Bread, Spaghetti, Chicken Bryan... Yum!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

Stopped by for dinner and had a very nice meal but a distracted/inattentive waitress. The fresh blackberry sangria was delish, loved it. My chicken Bryan was well-prepared and flavorful, as always. Love the goat cheese and roasted red pepper topping. The fresh warm loaves of bread with dipping oil, herbs and seasonings is wonderful.

Food is always good at Carrabba's. Staff was quick with our orders and our group consisted of 14 people. Nice selection on menu as were the drinks.

“Not great though it wasn't bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

Typical Franchise food, Steak and Lobster both overcooked. Pasta was cooked perfectly. The waiter we had needed a lot of training. He was friendly. It wasn' t bad for the money, but I won't be back.
