Have been to this restaurant a dozen or more times when visiting Allentown. It has never once disappointed. The food is consistently good and the prices are reasonable. The service is always attentive but not overbearing. Sometimes there's a wait but it's worth it!

Always good food Service is average. Good size pours and large menu. Something for everyone. Kind of loud at times.

On the whole we enjoyed our meal at Carrabba's but we found that the food, particularly the soups were excessively salty.

We love the authentic fire grilled choices here as well as the fresh baked bread. Pastas are delicious and service is always excellent!

We've gone there more times than I can count and never had a bad meal. You do pay more for drinks, but the service is good and therefore we don't mind as much.

Can this restaurant accommodate large groups buffet style? Maybe up to 100 people? Looking for somewhere in the area to host a large group gathering.

I called this restaurant myself and they acknowledged that they could NOT handle this size group. They would only be able to host a party of 40 in a semi-private area. Have you given thought to the Glasbern Inn in... More
