So they mad a change to the menu, increased prices and now the sauce costs extra. It's not what it was. Place was packed before change. Now I have a harder time finding/ compromising on what to eat. WAS a favorite. Was.

I kept seeing ads for Carrabba's and the food looked so awesome that I convinced my husband to go. We went on a Sunday night and the place was mobbed! We were seated in about 10 minutes and promptly greeted by our server. We ordered calamari as a shared app, I ordered the Prosciutto-Wrapped Shrimp over orzo and spinach, and... More

This place is pretty quiet, the crew seems to always be courteous. The food has not been out of this world but it does keep you full and happy you did not spend a penny more. The soups are amazing. Overall, the place has a low light setting and can get loud for dinners but has a fancy Italian touch.... More

My 12 year old has been asking me to take him here for some time, and I finally relented (perhaps because I had a 15% off coupon). The service was friendly and prompt and when I asked the waitress if the food was better than the Olive Garden, she replied: "we don't microwave frozen food and serve it to our... More

Being an Italian-American, having home cooked Italian food my whole life and being very selective which ristorantes i dined at I was very skeptical what to expect here. I was pleasantly surprised .. good service, nice decor and decent food, not 3-star quality or gourmet by any stretch of the imagination but no greasy spoon either.

Thank Richard C
