This has been on of my favorite restaurants for awhile, but last night was disappointing. First the staffing was not adequate for the crowd. Our waitress was super, but she just had too much ground to cover. Got seated at 6:50PM, was told had 10 minutes of happy hour left. Ordered the Ladies a Quartino Sangria, was on special, when...

Love sitting at the bar area by the pizza oven- fun watching them at work with all the movement going on. Chicken Parmigiana with pasta and Caesar salad plus glass of wine. Their warm bread with oil/spices are great also. Family really enjoys coming here.

They have the best service and Italian selections around. We like to sit in the back and watch the chefs prepare the meals. Great drinks. Everything on the menu is fantastic

My title said it all. Hubby and I have dined here several times and are always pleased. Carrabba's one of the better chains around. I always go with a pasta dish, and have never been disappointed. Recently we discovered Happy Hour... It's a great deal . Half Off on all the appetizers, draft beer and well drinks. As for wine:... More

The restaurant was nicely decorated and they had great food for a very reasonable price. My waitress seemed a little over whelmed, but she still did a great job.

The food is always good, but when you go with a family of 5, 2 adults, 3 daughters, expect to pay in the neighborhood of $120 if each adult orders one glass of wine. That seems very expensive to me, for a glorified olive garden. Each dish is $18. Pretty pricy for pasta.

At 50+ this is the 2nd time I've eaten at a Carrabba's, and I wouldn't consider myself a big fan of chains. However, I'm game to try something new. I had the pork tenderloin wrapped in prosciutto and saw no prosciutto - ended up it was like a piece of fat around the side. And the broccoli was sooooo overcooked... More

Even for a franchise, Carraba's consistently cranks out good food, decent service and a warm ambiance. My wife & I especially like the pizza bar concept. Drinks are ok but this is a good place for a date night, a group of friends or going out with family. Good value for the money.
