My wife an I had our first date here 13 years ago. The food was incredible then and hasn't changed one bit. The staff is attentive, great atmosphere, and like I said earlier the food is outstanding and reasonably priced. My fav is the spideno and my wife loves the Chicken Bryan. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone that likes... More

As far as the food went, it tasted good. The problem was blatant gluten contamination. I told the waiter I had celiac disease, went through the menu options, the food tasted good but what should have been a 90 minute drive home took over 4 hours because I had to stop at every gas station, fast food place, grocery store,...

For a chain restaurant this is my choice The elegantly prepared dishes are always just write with seasoning salsa with garlic and other genuine Italian touches

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
