I was out shopping all day with my family on Black Friday. We came in hungry with 6 adults and 3 kids. They were able to accommodate us, without a long wait, and very helpful with high chairs and crayons for the kids. As always...More

With a gluten allergy it is hard to eat out. Carrabba's offers to substitute many of their noodles for gluten free noodles. They also have small plates and soup in gluten free options. A pleasant experience over all, I have returned several times and always...More

Alfredo was too sweet and overall I felt as if I were eating in a fast food place. The calamari was too oily and rubbery. I love calamari, but this place put me off it for a while. The selection of pastas is limtied. I...More

Very inconsistent location. It's a chain, so don't expect much, but it can be very good, and it can also be awful. Wait staff is consistently indifferent. The menu changes regularly, and what you ordered once and enjoyed may have been completely redone into something...More

Carrabba's is a decent corporate Italian restaurant. Good variety and a kids menu help separate it from other chains. Brie is an outstanding waitress. In the unlikely event a problem arises they work hard to make it right.
