We used to come all the time but it's really gone down hill. I was lied to by a server saying they didn't have ginger ale. I knew they did because I had gotten it there before. I told him I thought it came from the bar, he told me he'd ask them and then returned saying nope. Manager happened... More

Have been eating in Carrabba's in Brooksville, Florida for a few years and have had great food and service, consistently. This one in Gainesville, Fla was not on par with the other; bland food, cold food and not much sympathy from the waiter or manager...Will not be going back!

I am not sure why everyone thinks this is great Italian or even a great restaurant. The food choices are quite limited (and pricey, too) without much variety. I did get the Wednesday pizza and sangria special, which was very good, but my friends got other dishes that made me say, "you paid how much for that?!" Even the bread... More

We were seated promptly and the service was very good. The herb and bread were excellent. My Mahi was good. My friend's salmon was cold and frozen in the center. I would recommend checking the meal cooked before starting the meal. The desert was excellent. A disappointment, because of the cost, we debated ordering the salmon.

Second visit-not as good as previous visit. Waited 15 minutes after salad for main course. My salmon was dry and my husband's meal was just so so. Certainly no worth $47 for two meals with no appetizers, alcohol , or desert. Waiter forgot to order our appetizer. I would think twice about returning.

This is a regular for us. It's always at least good, with lots of options for "gourmet" IT entrees. They're always full, but they're efficient, with a good wait staff. They kill the Olive Garden. (Try the sirloin steak marsala with garlic mashed taters, my favorite.

Great mainstream Italian Restaurant that serves up great Italian faire at a moderate price. Great menu selection from pizza to more traditional Italian dishes. Blackberry Sangria is fantastic and the service is always outstanding. Great for a date or with family/large groups - just remember to use call ahead seating.

This is a must stop when we are here on business. Great menu choices, great service and being able to order off menu with special requests are ALWAYS accepted by the servers and staff. Had a margarita pizza, marinara ~ not fresh tomatoes to avoid wet crust, and add mushrooms....PLUS, house red wine, YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!
