“Love Carrabbas!”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

Carrabbas is one of our favorite places to eat in Roanoke. We love the dishes they have. Never tried one we didn't like. We especially love the Pollo Rosa Maria and the Chicken Marsala with the Tag Pic Pac pasta on the side. A slight bit more pricey than Olive Garden but we both feel the food is much more authentic and tasty. We also have never had bad service and we've been there countless times. it's even one of our favorite places to dine on special occasions. Don't know why I haven't reviewed this place before. You can't go wrong eating there if you like Italian food.

“Used to be decent”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

We ate recently at the Carrabba's in Roanoke on a Friday evening and were really disappointed. We wanted to have a nice dinner and several years ago, this place would have fit the bill, but now it's barely mediocre. Carrabba's is supposed to be a superior italian restaurant, but the one in Roanoke has lost its mojo! Service was fine.

“Acceptable, but a few steps from great”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

We have frequented this chain many times over the past 10 plus years. They offer a consistent and good food quality at average prices. theRoanokee offers same in a clean, inviting atmosphere. Service has varied from exceptional to average. This past week, the steak marsala was great, with a cooked to order sirloin. Wife's seafood pasta fish contained 3 shrimp, but lots of bay scallops...could have been much better.

“Best Italian Food Around!”
Reviewed 9 December 2013 via mobile

Chicken Bryan....YUM! Everyone in my party ordered different dishes... everyone LOVED the food. So good, so fresh. Service was wonderful. Only complaint, their music was playing too loud. It did not go with the atmosphere at all. But we will be back!!!
