We go to Carrabba's a lot and enjoy all the meals the salad, soups, apps and desserts. Lots of times they are running special deals and you can come home with a full meal for sometime during the week if you freeze it or eat it 2 days later.

Eaten here several times and it does not disappoint ever. Lacks the artistry of Mama Zu's, but in a safer and more accessible location. By far the best chain restaurant for Italian food and their almost overuse of garlic makes the place memorable. Don't waste your time or money going to Olive Garden and eating food with diluted tastes and... More

Consider this restaurant. Although it is a chain restaurant the food seems non-chain. Excellent menu. The mussels and calamari are excellent.

Soccer tournament weekend landed a team of 14 yr old girls and their parents at Carrabbba's after a long day of soccer. Although there seemed to be some mix up with our reservations and our tables were not ready for 30 mins, once seated the service and food were fine.

The picture of this meatball on TV and on the menu shows the mozzarella oozing out of the meatball. The actual meatball was a disappointment...hardly any cheese and no cavity in the meatball for the cheese. The manager stopped by our table and asked how we liked it and it tasted good but no cheese. She said when the meatball... More

Came for my husband birthday. We came early so no need for reservations. We ordered calamari as an appetizer, Cesar salad, cioppino, spaghetti meatball and fettuccine with shrimps. All just wonderful including the service.

We had never been to Carrabba's before but had a gift card to use and it's close to home, so we tried it. Hubby had Linguine Chicken Positano and I had Lasagne. Our green salads were fresh and tasty, but the linguine could have used more chicken. We have a favorite Italian restaurant in another location and their lasagne simply... More

An all Italian menu with all the Italian grilled staples. I've tried the veal chop with linguini Alfredo and Lentil soup. Perfection. The chicken parmigiana was a little dry. The appetizer zucchini was a bit mushy and the bread needed to be baked a little longer. But I can't complain on very busy Saturday.

Although there is some variety on the menu, it didn't appeal to me as much as other Italian restaurants in the area. The general taste of the food was OK but not as good as other places. Seemed to be more bland, which is typical for a chain. The visit was OK but nothing to write home about. Next time... More

Excellent restaurant with fair prices. Much better than Olive Garden. Great atmosphere. Our waiter was superb. I've been to other Carabas but this is the best.
