We were staying at the near by Days Inn on New Year's Eve & walked to the restaurant for an early dinner to beat the crowd. The food & our server were excellent.

The server was exceptional, as was the hostess. My wife is in a wheelchair and the young hostess made sure she was comfortable before she left our table. Our server (Ray} was extremely nice.. The food was quit good for a chain restaurant. Even though its an Italian restaurant, I had the Salmon, mmm good. My wife had the fetticini... More

My husband and I are not big fans of chain restaurants, but Carrabba's is the e caption to the rule. Their food is consistently good, tastes like real Italian food, and does not seem to come out of a microwave. I haven't had a bad meal from them yet, and we eat there pretty regularly. It is not haute cuisine,... More

Served impeccably at the right (cool) temperature. Good glassware. Bread with dipping sauce was delicious. Olive oil, garlic, red pepper... Very good main courses. Excellent service from friendly, knowledgeable... More

If you want great bartenders that serve you like the awesome person you are - go visit Carrabba in Port Charlotte. I was pretty tired of the same old beer/ birds/ fish/ island music so a friend and I went for something different. Not being hungry we sat at the bar- we were served fast- fast drinks- and new napkins... More
