We are not into chain restaurants, but Carrabba's is the exception. We visit this restaurant every couple months and are never disappointed. I like the fact that you can see the kitchen. Also, the pizza oven is great...about as close to Italy as you can get. For travelers -- This location is just off I64. If it looks like the HRBT is jammed up (as it usually is during rush hours), Carrabba's is a sure bet for a good meal while you wait for the traffic to die down. The restaurant is kid friendly.

We visit this Carrabbas frequently and the food is always great but the service can be a little slow so don't go if you're in a rush!

As a frequent traveler, I know what a gamble getting take out at the end of the night can be. This carrabbas got all the little things right...bread in top of entrees to keep it warm, oil and spices, utensils, all done without asking.....good job... and oh yeah food was excellent

We have been patronizing this restaurant for years, since it first opened. It used to be always excellent, but the quality of the food has gone down over the years. It reached an all-time low with the last meal we had there, as a take-out order. We tried the new shrimp diavolo appetizer (their version of bang-bang shrimp), which was truly terrible. It was so salty that it was inedible, and had a vinegary sauce that did not complement the shrimp. We ordered sirloin skewers (which I have enjoyed there in the past), but they came cold and completely well-done instead of the medium that I had ordered. We also ordered chicken parmesan, which was burnt black on one side and was dry and tasteless, with no sauce. The cavatappi side pasta dish had so little sauce on it that it was dry and tasteless as well. To top it off, we had ordered two Caesar salads, and we received one Caesar and one regular. It we had eaten this meal in the restaurant, we could have notified management about the problems and they would have been fixed on the spot. But since this was take-out, we didn't know until after we got it home how unacceptable it was. I described the problems to the manager in an e-mail, and he said he would "talk to his wait staff about it." It seems to me that the problem is in the kitchen. Regardless, he did not offer to rectify the problems, and as a result, we will not go back.
