Curbside pickup is fast and easy. But when I got home, my order included 2 half salads for each salad I offered, and the romaine was already browning where it had been cut. Obviously, they were using up already made salads to get rid of them. Disappointing. Supermarket salads are fresher than these.

This is a very nice location. They have friendly staff and the service was excellent. We would certainly return. The parking lot is small so if the restaurant is crowded, parking is a bit of a challenge.

5 of us ate dinner here tonight and all got something different. Mine was fantastic and so was everyone else's. Our waiter was Mohammed and he kept the drinks and hot bread and oil flowing. Will repeat if in town again.

Sadly, the slow and inattentive wait service completely overshadowed the fact that the food was quite tasty. This poor service was magnified by the fact that the waiter did not even knowing the basics of opening and presenting a bottle of wine for approval prior to serving it. The poor service can't be blamed on the place being packed with... More

I've been to the bar for happy hour many times and typically get the shrimp scampi which is good. Decided to try the calamari, it was not good. Thin and tough, about the worst I've had. Do not recommend it.

Yes it is Italian food, but there is an American twist to appeal to the locals. Well presented, and hearty fare that is fresh. Our service was outstanding. The bread was excellent as well. We shall return.

My wife and I stopped into Carrabba's for an afternoon lunch before concert out at Jiffy Lube in Bristow. You can do a "pick 2" option. She got a lite entree and salad and I did the unlimited soup and salad. Despite the soup being a bit salty, our meals were overall very good. Oh, and that bread and oil... More
