Yes it is Italian food, but there is an American twist to appeal to the locals. Well presented, and hearty fare that is fresh. Our service was outstanding. The bread was excellent as well. We shall return.

My wife and I stopped into Carrabba's for an afternoon lunch before concert out at Jiffy Lube in Bristow. You can do a "pick 2" option. She got a lite entree and salad and I did the unlimited soup and salad. Despite the soup being a bit salty, our meals were overall very good. Oh, and that bread and oil... More

First we had the wings, I like these so much more than Buffalo style. Next I ordered the Tuscan grilled pork chops with the Bryan topping and my wife had the Johnny. We both had the grilled asparagus, and I had the sausage and lentil soup and my wife had the salad. Finally, for dessert my wife had the "Chocolate... More

Great food and service. Ambience is great and servers are friendly and happy to serve their customers. Happy hour offers half price appetizers. I have been here several times. The meatballs are awesome.

This used to be a decent value for the money. Not anymore. Service was fine, food decent. Everything is pushing $20 or more.

My adult grandson picked the place, where I've eaten before but not regularly. Great quality, good draft beer selection (Peroni AND Stella Artois!), and large portions of food.

I found the place decent for vegetarian food. It has limited options. Service was fast but could have been better. The place is nice and has good ambiance.

We enjoyed the fiery chicken wings and main courses of pasta and meatballs - both accompanied by a generous portion salad. Portions generally were very generous. Definitely won't need to eat the inflight meal.......

We used to be regulars but have gotten more & more dissatisfied with the service. Servers & Host staff turn over frequently either due to this being a training location or management issues. Service is slow and staff is casual in their attitude - stopping to chat with fellow employees frequently. We've experienced every service delay there is it seems... More
