I had not been to a Carrabba's in a few years and was not going into this one with high hopes, I simply was in the mood for pasta. Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised by not only extremely good food, but amazing service.
I had Josh as my server, during his training period to boot, and he did a fantastic job. He made some mistakes, like leaving mushrooms on my dish when I asked for no mushrooms, but he more than made up for it in friendliness, personality and timeliness. He did not hesitate to make menu suggestions and did a fantastic job following up. Honestly, had he not told me, and less the rookie mushroom mistake (oh, and he forgot to include a pen to sign the credit slip), I would have thought he had worked there for years. That really was some of the best service that I have had in a long time.
The spicy shrimp appetizer (I forget what they call it, but it is their take on Bonefish's bang-bang shrimp) was amazing. The pasta and the chicken were both cooked perfectly and full of flavor, I could not have been more pleased. In fact, for the first time in a long time, I waaaaaay over ate.
Honestly, if you are anywhere near this place, go. It really is great food and great service; well worth the trip. I will certainly be back if I am ever in the Tampa area again, and with any luck, I will get Josh again.
