Good Italian food, excellent fried calamari, great dipping oil for warm fresh bread. We have been going to Carraba's for years as our place to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and any other special occasion. The only time we choose not to go to Carraba's to celebrate is when we want to get lobsters. The service is always friendly and menu is always full of item's that are too difficult to cook at home.

Had not been to this restaurant for a couple of years due to declining quality and quantity of food. Had a gift certificate and decided to give it another try. Food was mediocre and overpriced for the quality and quantity. We did not order pasta dishes so I can't comment on those, but my husband had chicken parmesan and I had the Spiedino de Mare and both were overcooked and burnt (or charred) in places. I had a side of mixed vegetables which was very small and cold. There were 6 of us in our party and only one small loaf of bread was brought to the table, which amounted to about 1 small slice of bread per person, with a couple of people getting maybe two small slices. Portion sizes are smaller than in Carrabbas early years. We used to eat at Carrabbas constantly back 5 or 6 years ago. It was one of our favorite places to eat because the quality was consistently good and the quantity of food matched the prices. As far as the service we got, it was excellent. Our server Evan was friendly and helpful and went out of his way to accommodate any special requests. Sadly, we left there knowing that our . We will not be returning to any Carrabbas, not matter the location.

This place used to be packed, maybe we just hit it right as we walked in on a Friday night at 7 and did not have to wait. jChicken Bryan and Italian classics lasagna and chicken parm still excellent.

No complaint's about the food. The Seafood was fresh although extremely sparse in the pasta dishes. Not overflowing, bountiful pieces as falsely promoted on commercials. And the specials, (as denoted on TV) was not as easy to identify on the menu as with other popularly advertised restaurants.
