Even though the restaurant was busy with a 20 minute wait at 5:30, the server was very good. All the food was excellent and we especially like the Chicken Bryan.

My wife and I lunched here Saturday, ordering our favorite entree Chicken Bryan, mine with goat cheese, my wife's with Mozzerella. A super meal you won't find anywhere else. The new manager stopped by our table, having been in this Carrabba's just two weeks. From our conversation we could tell that she will improve the operation here significantly. Her predecessor...

Eat here as we where right next door at Yankee candles. Just ho hum sauce seemed watery. Sausage was good hot bread good, salad good just main dish sucked. Better at breakfast as left over.

Don't get me wrong, I will still go to Olive Garden, but the Italian food at Carrabba's is finer and seem to be more carefully prepared. For example, I had the Veal Marsala and you can see the garlic, mushrooms and other ingredients in the sauce. My wife had the "Linguine Pescatore" and it was loaded with chunks of fresh... More

Service was good. Strictly average food. Sauce in the chicken-pasta dish was more tomato than sauce. Lacked flavor. The chicken in the chicken parmesan was nice but needed sauce - it should be cooked in the sauce. An Italian restaurant should be judged by its tomato sauce and this one fell short.

Always liked Carrabas and they did not disappoint. Food was yummy. Waitress was pleasant. Hostess was just ok, not as pleasant which surprised me. Hostess is the first face into the restaurant. However, if you want delicious food, stop in.

Our food was so fresh and delicious. The waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable. Everything came hot and prompt. This was one of the best meals we had here on vacation in Williamsburg. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Very crowded Saturday night. Worth the wait. Peach sangria delicious. Pasta dish with shrimp served hot and fresh. Salad large. Hot bread. Would have preferred better over the olive oil but it was also good. Server was great.

Had a good Italian dinner here. I had chef's salad with Parmesan dressing. Entree was linguine with shrimp & tomatoes, dessert was vanilla ice cream with roasted cinnamon rum pecans (it was to die for). Wife had lasagna as her entree, both meals were very good. We brought some of the entree all no to heat for lunch tomorrow.

This Carrabba's is much better than our local one. We try to go every time we're in Williamsburg. We had lunch there recently and even though they left sausage off my pizza, it was still good. The apps were good and the bread was fresh and hot. Two of us had pizza and the others had pasta. It was a... More
