The server was exceptional, as was the hostess. My wife is in a wheelchair and the young hostess made sure she was comfortable before she left our table. Our server (Ray} was extremely nice.. The food was quit good for a chain restaurant. Even though its an Italian restaurant, I had the Salmon, mmm good. My wife had the fetticini... More

My husband and I are not big fans of chain restaurants, but Carrabba's is the e caption to the rule. Their food is consistently good, tastes like real Italian food, and does not seem to come out of a microwave. I haven't had a bad meal from them yet, and we eat there pretty regularly. It is not haute cuisine,... More

You know it's a chain. You know they're everywhere. But we had a great meal. Wednesday special was to take $10 off a bottle. Had a Centine Super Tuscan for $30. Served impeccably at the right (cool) temperature. Good glassware. Bread with dipping sauce was delicious. Olive oil, garlic, red pepper... Very good main courses. Excellent service from friendly, knowledgeable... More

If you want great bartenders that serve you like the awesome person you are - go visit Carrabba in Port Charlotte. I was pretty tired of the same old beer/ birds/ fish/ island music so a friend and I went for something different. Not being hungry we sat at the bar- we were served fast- fast drinks- and new napkins... More

It seems the menu has the bases covered when the 12 items and the rest if the menu is made with those basics. 2 Ice teas , the endless soup and salad and a order of Calamari. 35 bucks 7 buck tip. I was not impressed b it my bride liked it fine . service was good

Great food and service. The best part they have gluten free menu and the food was great. The server was very pleasant and friendly. We had about a 15 minute wait which is not too bad.

Warm bread with the Creamy Parmesan dressing spread was so good. Great fresh house salads. I had Veal Parmesan. Large entree that would feed 2 people. Husband had Lasagna that was excellent. Large portions and great service. Kids had spaghetti with meat sauce and Alfredo. Good size portions in kids meal as well! We were in a hurry and they... More
