We live near Carrabbas and it is our go to place for good reasonably priced Italian with great service. We like the happy hour drink deals and large portions, usually take home leftovers. The complementary fresh hot bread and olive oil dip is also great.

I'm not usually a fan of chain restaurants however Carrabba's is consistent and everything I have had has been great. I like a lot of flavor with my food and I haven't been disappointed yet. If you prefer bland food it would not be my recommendation for you

This Carrabba's is right on Stickney Point Rd just before the south bridge of Siesta Key. We have been here a few times and the food is predictably good. This time I had the Carrabba Fettuccine Alfredo which was very good! My wife had the lobster stuffed ravioli which she said was good but not as good as the same... More

Arrived here for dinner and the hostess was just wonderful. Told us a 15 minute wait and we were at our table in 10. Morgan was very pleasant. Our waitress Kathleen was also just great.

We were looking for a place to eat other than fried food after a day on Siesta Key and we chose wisely when our party of three picked Carrabba's. There were loads of restaurants to chose from, but one of us is allergic to shellfish and all three of us wanted a change from fried food while keeping costs down.... More

Food was good, the staff friendly. Just a small comment " the portions are too big". Would recommend to friends as a good place to eat at anytime.

This is a family-friendly setting, serving a diverse menu of classic Italian fare. From the moment we ask to be seated, throughout our meal to the time we pay our tab, we were well taken care. The service was outstanding and the food was excellent. You never go wrong eating at Carrabba's no matter which location you choose to go.... More

This Carrabas was absolutely tremendous- the 2 guys at the bar were right on and served us immediately......of course their blackberry sangria is out of this world to boot. Would recommend this to everyone over a lot of local restaurants!!

Very disappointing. Restaurant had a good billing. We found it very loud and noisey, more like a bar. Did not find staff very friendly. Food was just average. No return for us. Better Italian in the city.
