I would agree with another reviewer who said that, even though Carrabba's is a chain, it's probably the best Italian in the area (definitely, to us, better than Naples, Altruda's, Olive Garden, etc., although I have not tried Emilia so cannot speak to that). Yes, it is busy, so I would definitely recommend calling ahead and, if possible, avoiding peak... More

Very good Italian dining experience. Very true to the original Carrabba's in Houston. Excellent wine list. My Casa Smith cab from Washington was a nice find. Not much for beer -- 5 choices including Peroni and Moretti. Food menu very robust. Chicken dishes especially strong. My chicken parm was very good but curiously did not come with spaghetti included. Included... More

We started with Tomato Caprese, which was very good. I had the Chicken Bryan. Others had Lasagne, Spaghetti with Pomodoro Sauce and Fettuccine Alfredo....all good. We enjoyed the waiter and the atmosphere. It was a good visit!

We visited after 2 on Sunday and they were still packed! Sat at the bar top and it was extremely loud. Ordered a pizza and some calamari. The calamari came out first "hot" but we couldn't eat it, we hadn't been given any silverware! The bartender was extremely busy with several tables in the bar area, so it was quite... More

I dont know how many times I have eaten at Carrabbas, but ive never not been blown away. Calamari, Shrimp & Scallop Spiedino, Chicken Bryan, Lobster Ravioli, and about half a dozen other dishes I cant recall. Never have I ever been anything but blown away, or left hungry. If you leave hungry, you just didnt eat. And im sorry... More

Always love eating here! This time was no exception. They were quick to seat and wait on us. We stated with drinks and appetizers, fried zucchini and wings, both were good. The steak Byron I got was excellent and my wife loved her chicken Byron!! Yes we will eat here again!

We have eaten at this location several times before and each time we had a 4-5 star experience. This time, we ate on a very busy and noisy Tuesday evening. We were seated at a table in the center area of the restaurant. If you want quiet, insist on a booth along the outside wall and as far from the... More

We arrived with a party of 10 at 6:00 on a Friday night and was accommodated with seating within 10 minutes. The service was friendly and the food was good (typical Carraba's).

Our experience was average, we came here expecting more. The place was already close to full at 5:30pm, we were sat at a table and they are all way too close to each other. An older lady next me kept going to the restroom and I would have to shift out of her way. A young couple near us moved... More
