Not an italian food fan, but my friend likes italian food so had to come here with him. The calamari appetizer was good tho. However, the alfredo was so-so, could have more flavor in it and more sauce. Also, waited a little bit long for the food.

There is only so much fish that U can eat! Our waitress , Kylie , was friendly and Attentive.my filet with the Sicilian butter was excellent ! And the asparagus was cooked perfectly. My husband enjoyed the mahi mahi with mashed potatoes . The happy hour wine was an extra perk.

This Carrabba's restaurant is the best we have experienced on the east coast. The food is extraordinary. That is the direct result of the cooks and others who work behind the scenes. The manager, assistant manager and wait staff are working to make the dining experience ideal.

Took my daughter and her BF here to celebrate both of their 21st birthdays. The server was attentive and fun and helped them choose a cocktail they would enjoy. There were free birthday desserts (and a free app for me as it was my first visit) . I was not expecting to crow about the food in a chain restaurant... More

My friend chose as he'd enjoyed visits to other Carrabba restaurants, but he was also disappointed. Service was poor-slow and not friendly. The food was not enjoyable-over cooked pasta with little sauce. The wine was pretty grim too!

The calamari appetizer is the best. It was cooked just enough to be tender. The bread was hot and crispy, The dipping olive oil had too much spice causing you to cough. I ordered Pasta Weesie. It was an alfredo sauce with tender shrimp and mushrooms. Quite yummy.The included Caesar salad was cold and crispy. My date order Filet mignon.... More

I was so disappointed in Carrabbas in Fort Myers tonight that I won't go back. We went last year and it was fair, but we decided to give it another chance because at one time it was one of our favorite places. We got there early and beat the crowd and were seated immediately. The salad was passable, but the... More

This was our third visit to this restaurant and it was the third time we had an issue with our meal. The food is tasty but it was cold. We complained and we had to wait but were given a hot replacement plus they took it off our bill. Thank you for that. Tonight there were several people complaining to... More

Carrabba's is Carrabba's but I will say this place gets packed. The early birds usually get the good seats at the bar and stay for the various offerings that are good and servings are ample. My favorites include the chicken dishes, always juicy and the sauces complimentary. The pasta is good, and enough for two people. Try it, you'll like... More

To stop here, or the Olive Garden nearby. Chose Carraba's for a late lunch, and are still puzzled by what we experienced. PROs - Food was perfectly okay. Meatball sandwich & soup combo was hot, tasty & reasonably priced. Chicken Pladina was equally tasty. Fortunately, the food was hot, because... CONs - You could have hung sides of beef in... More
