We were seated, ordered glasses of wine, then placed our order. The first course, soup and salad, came out fairly promptly. But after a fairly long wait our server came to say that the kitchen was swamped and it would be about another 15 minutes. It dawned on us that we couldn't wait that much longer and still get to...

Checked in at 5:50 and we were told an estimated wait time of 30 minutes which is fair for Saturday night. The problem is the waiting area is way too small. There were 25-30 people which made it very uncomfortable. One of the servers spilled her tray of food due to struggling to maneuver thru the area. Once seated, the... More

Food was good, service was substandard for a place at this price point. I had the spaghetti Bolognese and was good. Wife had spaghetti Pomodoro and liked it. Overall food was not an issue. Service could of and should have been better.

I was invited to a business dinner at Carrabas last night. I would not normally select a chain restaurant for a group dinner, but it wasn't my choice. Not being a big fan of pasta, I hoped that they would have something else on the menu and indeed they did. Plenty. Fish, chicken, shellfish, steaks and of course pasta. I... More

A good place to go for a satisfying Italian meal. Busy as always they did a good job of seating us new our reservation time. Our waitress was good, attentive but not pushing us. The soup was excellent as usual, the house dressing is perfect for the salad and the entrees were as ordered. My wife does a little "adjusting"... More

We have eaten here several times. The food is served warm but not hot. The food is good but not excellent. Very noisy. Somewhat over priced in my opinion.

We had a gift card for our anniversary. The food was excellent. We both add a shrimp and scallop dinner. Dessert , especially the apple dumpling with ice cream was really tasty. Service was excellent as well as the manager checking to see if everything was being taken care of.

Five girlfriends went here for lunch and loved it. Two had been before and three had not, but everyone liked their food. Ariel, our server, was awesome! Will definitely go back.

Food is excellent. Family favorites Chicken Bryan, Chicken Marsala & Chicken Parmesan. Wish the half portions were still available. A lot of food to eat or guaranteed leftovers! Rachel is a great waitress. We will wait for a table in her section. Favorite restaurant with our college kids!
