Went there on a Wed. night. They had pizza and wine special. Didn't get any wine but my son got a pizza, pretty cheap, and loved it. My seafood was excellent and my wife liked her pasta. Service was great. Didn't give it five stars because a large party were sat behind our table and things got real close real... More

Greeting in entry to restaurant was how many in your party. Restaurant was not at busy. Wait staff was unfriendly, snippy. She rushed our salad, bread was not sliced and when we asked for more bread, she did not bring it until our entrees came out. Salad plates had not been cleared. She reached across members if our party rather... More

I've been to a few Carrabba's over the years, and this was the least impressive. Although the service was nice and prompt, the food was really just bland.

We were seated right away, waited on within minutes, and had the best tender steak and soft broccoli. The waiter was very attentive.

While looking for a place to eat supper at tonight we stumbled upon this Carrabbas. We sat at the bar and was instantly greeted with friendly faces from the chefs. Jason, Vincent, Freddy, Juan Carlos, and Sergio were great to my family and myself. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and good service. Such a wonderful experience!

It was a family dinner to celebrate a birthday. Food was excellent and service was very good. I had Lasagne and everyone enjoyed the dinners that they ordered. The mussels in white wine sauce appetizer are awesome! Great place to visit for any occasion. Highly recommend this location.

We are locals and dine here frequently. The food is always good and satisfies my craving for meatballs and sausage/lentil soup, but the bartender, Brian, is why we keep coming back, over and over :) He knows his guests and makes you feel like family. My son loves the chicken marsala and my husband the Spaedina dish with scallops. They... More

Ok look.. go see a girl named heather. She works there as a server.. her recommendations were spot on, quick and friendly. The appetizers are fantastic here, and if you can, get a steak.

Carrabba's is a chain restaurant offering a wide variety of Italian dishes, but it did not feel like a typical chain restaurant. The restaurant was attractively decorated and although well attended, not very noisy. There were three of us and for starters we had Caesar salad, minestrone and sausage and lentil soup. The salad and soups were good sizes and... More

Carrabba's is a favorite go to place when we have a taste for Italian food. They charge the menu seasonally to keep things fresh and new. Their Raspberry limoncello drop Martini is a winner. Now they have a new frequent diner program. Highly recommend this place.
