We were seated immediately at a booth, the waiter came over after a few minutes to take our drink orders, he was back in about a minute to take our appetizer order as well as bring bread and olive oil. Soon our fried mozzarella with marinara came out and we placed our orders for food. I had the lasagna with... More

This very well might have been the best part of our trip to Hunt Valley during winter storm Stella! Our arrival was my husband's first experience at a Carrabba's Italian Grill, (AND he is Italian, a fabulous cook, extremely finicky about Italian food - almost to the point that he really doesn't enjoy most meals outside of our home-cooked ones)...

I have been to Carrabba's several times. The whole family likes it. The food is moderately priced and reliably good. The staff are friendly. Sometimes when things are busy they can get a bit overwhelmed, but typically service is prompt and engaging. They make their soups with their own stock.

The food was okay. Nothing really spectacular. I had the steak and was cooked the way I liked it. The service was good. Polite staff.

I've gone here frequently for lunch and for the most part like the food but a good 70% of the time I get poor service. One time waiter took almost 10 min to come to the table. He took my order and then went to another table that came in 5 min after me. They got served food before I... More

My son and I visited the hunt valley location, as we have gone quite frequently and regularly purchase gift cards. We did agree as we were sitting there waiting for our waitress , that unlike bonefish (bel air location anyway) the service at this location was often hit or miss. However we had a good meal including trying the new... More

Service is fine -- but the food is appalling. The bread is a miserable excuse for good Italian bread. The olive oil is either rancid -- or the herbs they put in them are. The house salad is excellent. But the mezzaluna pasta with vodka sauce is just rotten. The raviolis themselves are not bad -- but the sauce is... More

The food was good, not outstanding, but good for the price. The restaurant seemed.slow, even for a Tuesday evening. The server was efficient, however not much of a personality. They have a nice selection of wines to compliment the menu.

We usually visit Carrabba's when we are down that way. We usually are on a time crunch trying to get to a medical appointment or get home from one but this time was different. We did not wait long the food was fantastic and we were in and out in a good amount of time with no worries.
