Service prompt and friendly. Food portions large. Bread wrapped in wax paper, does this mean it isn't prepared fresh? Soup was tasty, but served warm, not piping hot. Chicken parm was very good. Pasta side was okay, not enough sauce and cooled quickly.

First, I'd like to caveat that my poor review is about the quality of food as managed by this chain of restaurants and not something specific to the management of this location. The staff is perfectly pleasant and the atmosphere an expected family-oriented one. But the food is not good. Please go to a more boutique, local family-owned Italian restaurant... More

We frequent the Carrabba's restaurant in Centreville about once a week for a family evening get together. A nice selection of entrees, good and food and friendly and attentive service. Monday nights seems to be a quite night, which we enjoy.

Carrabas is in Centreville, Va and is a nice family restaurant with good food and service. We have never had a bad meal there. They take your name, but not an actual reservation.

If you're out of the area, this place is consistently good. Perhaps not the best, but usually the best requires hit and miss reviews and tries. Great and easy stop from Dulles airport or other visits. Service was not that good on this visit but the food was good. Quiet enough with a business meeting going on at the end,... More

I don't think the food is as good as it used to be. The service was good but slow. Don't think I'll be going back again.

My family and I all agree that Carrabba's always pleases. The food and service is excellent. You can tell that the food is freshly prepared. I highly recommend the lentil soup.

The food is pretty good and there are some nice happy hour specials but sections of the restaurant can be cold and drafty, the bar area in particular. Management says the HVAC is managed by a third party and they can't control the system themselves. I think part of the problem is the front door doesn't close completely and cold... More

Went with some friends who are regulars and enjoy dining here. My meal consisted of minestrone soup which was soggy (even the celery) and a combo dinner of lasagna and chicken parmigiana. Both the lasagna and chicken had little sauce which seems to indicate to me that they were both pre-made and fairly bland. Suggest going across Route 29 to... More
