We are here today and everything we ordered was flavorless an not worth the price . I think you better off going to the pizzeria in the strip mall before . I never had linguini with claims and the sauce is white creamy almost like Alfredo. Terrible experience .

We have had numerous meals here and our favorite server is Deryl and we have never had a bad meal. If anything was out of the ordinary, they correct it immediately. We have had 2 large parties there as well. Excellent food and excellent service are standard.

My husband and I eat here at least once a month or more and we are never disappointed. The food is very good and the service is excellent. I usually start with the spicy lentil soup and an Italian salad and my main course Is the salmon. Delicious! The prices are very reasonable. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

So they mad a change to the menu, increased prices and now the sauce costs extra. It's not what it was. Place was packed before change. Now I have a harder time finding/ compromising on what to eat. WAS a favorite. Was.

I kept seeing ads for Carrabba's and the food looked so awesome that I convinced my husband to go. We went on a Sunday night and the place was mobbed! We were seated in about 10 minutes and promptly greeted by our server. We ordered calamari as a shared app, I ordered the Prosciutto-Wrapped Shrimp over orzo and spinach, and... More

This place is pretty quiet, the crew seems to always be courteous. The food has not been out of this world but it does keep you full and happy you did not spend a penny more. The soups are amazing. Overall, the place has a low light setting and can get loud for dinners but has a fancy Italian touch.... More
