Well, what can I say! The Shrimp and Scallop with Noodles in vodka sauce was awful. It was absolutely tasteless. The meal looked great and the waitress was great, but neither could make up for the tasteless seafood and equally tasteless runny, watery vodka dauce. The chef had tried to make up for it by adding way too much pepper... More

We stayed at the Hyatt Place close to Hamburg. Carrabba's Restaurant was very close and had carry out. I ordered the Family meal for $34.99. It was spaghetti, meatballs, salad, and bread. The salad was fresh, spaghetti was good. It was a nice amount of food for the price. They also supplied the plates, napkins and plastic forks and spoons.... More

Have eaten here several times and always enjoy it. Dined there with my daughters and we all had great dinners. I asked for Chicken Piccata which is not on the menu....our waiter had them make it for me and it was wonderful. Our server was very pleasant and attentive. Of course leave room for the Tiramisu!!

Good food and service. It's a little high for a chain and for what you get. We can eat local Italian for less. Good variety though.

Very Busy restaurant, The Mezza Luna was SOOO FRESH! Had the house red wine quartino and was pleasantly surprised. Happy Hour Value! I was impressed by the way the staff worked with a guest who got something stuck in her throat. Very attentive and caring! Michelle was friendly waitress and provided perfect service. Ate at the bar area.

We have dined at Carrabba's several times and always have had a positive experience. Our most recent visit was no exception. Arriving a little after 6 pm, we were seated immediately. The dining choices were good. The food was quite good and the delivery of the courses was timed perfectly from soup/salad to desserts. Our server, Michelle B., was excellent.... More

We normally have dinner here while passing thru to our kids in Louisville The food was bad, the drinks were bad. Probably the worst server we have ever had. Really disappointed.

One of the best happy hours in town. Yes, this is a chain restaurant, but their drinks are great, not watered down. There are some good choices on the appetizer and small plate menus as well. Great service as well. Decent food and drink for a good price.

We came here after a tournament and was hungry! The food was to die for and the service equally impressive our server stayed on top of everything. No one had a bad meal and had plenty left over to take home,
