Went with another couple. They had the stuffed meatball which was dry and tasteless according to them. My husband had the chicken with arugula salad and it was very good. I had the spaghetti with bolognese sauce.....not enough....had to ask for more. Just not very good.

We arrived a little before 6:00 and were seated immediately. It's been quite some time since I've been in, so i was delighted to see the new decor and table arrangements. It is much more open and airy. Our waiter was Dusty and he was magnificent. We waited for nothing and his attitude was superior. The food was excellent (spaghetti... More

When we walked, in there was no one to greet us and we didn't know if we were to seat ourselves or not. Finally, a man came from the back and seated us. I ordered pizza and my husband orders shrimp and scallops with a coke to drink. We waited WAY too long for our meal. The pizza was ok... More

Tried it a couple of times, but the service has always been mediocre and the food has been disappointing. It really doesn't have anything to commend it. The last time we went was to use up a gift certificate.

Should have gone to the Olive Garden up the road. The food was so bland, no seasoning. The grill pork chop that my mom had was terribly dry and tough. I usually don't complain, I usually just role with it, but I had to because food ain't cheap to me.

the several soups we had tasted nice; the chicken and pasta dishes have nice flavors, but the meat and seafood are tougher than expected. For the price, we got very small portions. Friendly staff and good service.

We go a couple times a year, special occasions and such. I pre-ordered a Tiramisu cake for my partner's birthday. He absolutely loved it. It is his favorite. The Johnny Rocco salad is scrumptious, especially if you order just scallops. Service was quite attentive. Carrabba's is our favorite Italian restaurant.
