This particular area of Tampa seems to be completely dominated by chain restaurants. But when you're a stranger in big town, that's not a bad thing. My wife and I were staying overnight in the area and wanted some comfort food. I scoured the TA site and found nothing bet chains near where we were staying. We had eaten an... More

I like going to Carraba's because they consistently serve good food. Their wide variety of dishes in their menu just makes me want to go back and try each one. Their pizzas are great!

Carrabba's is a go to place in any city for people celebrating an occasion or even for those that are not. The service size is pretty good that ordering an appetizer can be skipped. The service is friendly and courteous.

went to restaurant for dinner. Great choices for children. Portions large. Took some back to our hotel. Clam sauce was good. Tomato and mozzarella was excellent. Chicken Marsala good. Salad fresh. Minestrone was hearty and fresh. Noise level was energy filled

If you have been to one Carrabba's you have been to them all. It is what you would expect, good food casual dining. It beats Olive Garden by a mile.

Yes it's a chain but the food is always good here, and the staff friendly. Hard to say anything negative here.

First time to Carrabbas. Visit on Monday night, which some would call a tradition for serving Italian. Got there around 6pm, Good crowd and was promptly seated, in a booth which the wife likes. Servings were good and plentiful. Tried the special where you pick either an appitizer or desert then an entree and soup or salad. We had lasagna... More

Located along Fowler Avenue not far from Bush Gardens, is a well-designed and efficiently operated Carrabba’s. As a party of five, we were immediately seated and attended to for lunch. A server named “Vinny” did an excellent job. There is a lunch menu section with a number of small plate items. Everyone enjoyed what they had. Chicken soup and the... More

The food seems to be up and down. Sometimes it is fantastic and other times it is sort of OK Some times the temperature is hot and sometimes it is warm.

Always like Carrabbas but had never tried the strawberry salad. Excellent! Spouse had Fettucine with shrimp and he loved it. Always quality. Great service. The call ahead seating saves time waiting. Neighbors had filet mignon, Fettucine Carrabbas and spaghetti with meatballs. All enjoyed very much. Blackberry sangria, too!
