Friendly staff and delicious food. A little bit more expensive then most places but definitely worth the extra money. I highly recommend the chicken parmesan. Will be back again soon!

My husband and I went late one Saturday night in January after going to the movies. The hostess and waitress were extremely kind and friendly although they were close to closing time. Our food came out as we expected, and it was a pleasant surprise since we had not heard all positive things. We ordered dessert as a to go... More

We ordered the Mahi Wulfe dish. It was delicious. Service was good - fast and friendly. The ambiance was cozy but not dark. The word is out on this restaurant, so make a reservation. They are always busy because its a great place to eat.

We loved going to Carrabba's whenever we would go to Nashville to visit family. Our last visit will probably be our last. The service wasn't good. The 4 adults at the table all agreed that the salad was fair where we use to say delicious. The shrimp fettuccine had an unpleasant smell where before it was also delicious. The children's... More

All the food we ordered tasted horrible. The meatballs and spaghetti, chicken Bryan, lasagna. Don't recommend this restaurant at all. Didn't even want to give it one star.

Very good food & service. Lunch visit after medical visit to Nashville. 2 orders of Caesar salad and 2 orders of chicken pasta Alfredo. The service was very quick with the salads, entrees, and drink refills. Used a Dine-Reward earned discount. Our server was well versed with the use of the discount program. One of our favorite places to eat... More

I tried the lasagna and it was delicious. The spicy wings and callimari were good also. It is a little expensive but worth it.

I'm just not a big fan of Carrabba's. I've dined at this location a few times. It's clean and has a great ambiance. The service is good, too. However, I just don't like the taste of their food. I prefer the Olive Garden to Carrabba's.

Thank AlabamaAngel
