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!

I've been in Temple Terrace for business several times over the past several months and have spent an exorbitant amount of time eating at restaurants and staying in hotels. If you're in the Temple Terrace area, this is probably the best place to eat. Yes, it's a chain, but the level of service I've received at the bar from Jose... More

I have this saying about certain chain Italian restaurants "No self respecting Italian will eat there'. Being Italian from the Northeast, there is no reason to frequent them. Having said this, coming here is a no brain-er when I'm on business and I need a decent quick meal. Food is pretty good and the service is great.

Thank Jerry R
