We were staying at The Courtyard Marriott and the manager there recommended nearby Carrabba's for dinner. This is a nice surprise for a chain restaurant--good-quality food and efficient, friendly service. Both the veal piccata and small sirloin marsala were unexpectedly delicious. Loved the complimentary bacon/onion flatbred (a small, crispy pizza). Nice wine list by the glass, as well as a good $5 a glass Monday special.

We were in town for a meeting and having a bad experience at the Holiday Inn. So we headed to Carrabba's for what we knew would be a nice meal. As always, the food was very good and the service great. We tried the bruschetta -- lots of calories, but light and very tasty. I had the chicken Caesar [always good] and my partner tried a pasta dish with chicken, artichoke hearts, olives, sun dried tomatoes--very nice. We needed and appreciated an evening of "comfort food" at this, one of the few chains we like to frequent when we're traveling.

Seems like a lot of people like this but their food is not the kind of italian food that I am used to so I was not too impressed nor did I want to go back.

I know it sounds funny but this Itallian spot has probably the best steak in Johnson City. The Filet Florentina is delicious.. Try it. It's worth it.

My daughter and I recently visited Carrabbas in Johnson City for a late lunch.We were seated immediately,apparently everyone was Christmas shopping,and our waiter promptly got our drink orders.The menu at Carrabbas is easy to navigate and contains a very good selection.We both ordered the 4 cheese manicotti and it was an excellent choice.The entree includes a house salad or italian salad with delicious hot fresh bread with dipping sauce.My daughter nor I finsihed our meal and took a decent portion of the Manicotti home.I think this restaurant far exceeds any Franchise Italian food I have eaten anywhere.
