Arrived here for dinner and the hostess was just wonderful. Told us a 15 minute wait and we were at our table in 10. Morgan was very pleasant. Our waitress Kathleen was also just great. She was there when you needed her and very professional. Had a wonderful dinner and she was a big part of it. My friend and... More

We were looking for a place to eat other than fried food after a day on Siesta Key and we chose wisely when our party of three picked Carrabba's. There were loads of restaurants to chose from, but one of us is allergic to shellfish and all three of us wanted a change from fried food while keeping costs down.... More

Food was good, the staff friendly. Just a small comment " the portions are too big". Would recommend to friends as a good place to eat at anytime.

This is a family-friendly setting, serving a diverse menu of classic Italian fare. From the moment we ask to be seated, throughout our meal to the time we pay our tab, we were well taken care. The service was outstanding and the food was excellent. You never go wrong eating at Carrabba's no matter which location you choose to go.... More

This Carrabas was absolutely tremendous- the 2 guys at the bar were right on and served us immediately......of course their blackberry sangria is out of this world to boot. Would recommend this to everyone over a lot of local restaurants!!

Very disappointing. Restaurant had a good billing. We found it very loud and noisey, more like a bar. Did not find staff very friendly. Food was just average. No return for us. Better Italian in the city.

On our yearly vacations to Siesta Key, a stop at Carrabba's is mandatory. Like all locations in this chain, we have never had a bad experience...you know what you'll be getting and they do not disappoint. I especially like the Lentil soup with Italian sausage. Artichoke salad is exceptional as well. My wife always gets Lasagna and it's perfect as... More

I have my own server when I come in the door here! The chicken Bryan is my favorite. There are great specials on Mondays.

Had a hankering for pasta. Did not want huge portions. Asked to share one order of spaghetti with side of meatballs. Just right serving size. Al dente pasta with tasty sauce. Gracious waitstaff. Ordered a bottle of Prosecco. Surprised to learn we could take wrapped & corked remainder back to our hotel.

Thank jean m
