The calamari was good but the linguini with white clam sauce was excellent. The sauce was creamy and rich but not overbearing. I wanted to stop eating but it was so tasty it was hard to stop.

I always have experienced excellent service and consistent top quality meals at this chain restaurant. I would guess the managers have thorough and detailed training programs for their staff.....a big thumbs up for them and their corporate office. At this particular location, we were served by a young man by the name of Rory. He was raised right and trained... More

Ten of us chose Carrabba's because it was close to the show we were going to at UCF and because we could make reservations. Five minutes after our reservation time we were seated in a private part of the restaurant all by ourselves, We could actually converse with our friends at the end of the table,,,no background noise! Our waiter... More

Mike met us at the door, and by sheer dynamics I knew we were in for a great time. 10 of us met here for a 55th anniversary and we were not disappointed. Half of our crowd had not eaten here before, but they said they would be back. Great food, great portions, great service, and the new owner drives... More

It came with soup or salad & we both opted for soup - it was delicious. For drinks, we both had arnold palmers. Service was friendly... More

On Sunday after the art show downtown we enjoyed Spaghetti & Meatballs to take advantage of their BOGO offer. I had mine with meat sauce and my wife had pomodoro sauce . Both were full flavored and freshly made. We also enjoyed the bread with EVOO and spice for dipping. They have increased their portion sizes which I took advantage... More

We do enjoy stopping at Carrabbas no matter where it's at. Love the bread and olive oil and spice. One I of our favorite dinners is the chicken bryan.

First started going to this Carrabba's on Valentines Day 2005. At that time your meal included a double portion of what you receive now, soup and salad and the bread with the dipping oil for the price they charge now. Your meal now is just a small portion and you have a choice of soup or salad. They still bring... More

This Carrabbas is so busy that you have to get there early on a Friday night or you will be waiting, but it's always worth the wait. Our waitress "Shasha" did a great job, even though she got slammed with a bunch of tabless at once. We had calamari for an appetizer, lentil soup, then chicken piccata and mezzuluna. All... More

At last minute our friends and us decided to go to Carrabba's for dinner. There was a bit of a wait in the regular dining area so we grabbed a table in the bar area. Our server Kraig, promptly took our drink orders and mentioned the specials of the day. When he returned with our drinks we took some of... More
