The Service Is HORRIBLE!!!!! – Let me get straight to the point.
NO COMMUNICATION BETWEEN THE STAFF!!!!
FOOD LOOKED LIKE TV DINNERS!!!!
Wait staff needs to learn manners!!!!!
You Leave with a BAD TASTE IN YOUR MOUTH!!!!!
THINK BEFORE YOU GO HERE!!!!!!
BAD SERVICE! – I WAS THERE WIL MY FAMILY, AND A PARTY OF ABOUT TEN CAME IN. OUR WAITRESS TOTALLY IGNORED US, THE BIG PARTY HAD FOUR WAITERS WAITING ON THEM. WE SAT THERE A HALF HOUR, AND WAS STILL WAITING FOR OUR SOUP. WE HAD TO GET THIER ATTENTION. THEN A DIFFERENT WAITER CAME TO OUR TABLE, HE FORGOT EVERYTHNG WE ORDERED, THE FOOD WAS BAD, THE BUTTER WAS SO STALE, I CANNOT BELIEVE THEY WOULD SERVE THAT TO CUSTOMERS. TERRIBLE SERVICE, EVEN IF YOU HAVE A SMALL PARTY, YOU DESERVE THE SAME SERVICE A BIG PARTY IS HAVING. THE FOOD WENT DOWN HILL THE PAST FEW MONTHS, AND NOW SO HAS THE SERVICE.
An open kitchen churns out wood-fired pizzas and fresh-made pastas at this casual Sicilian-American chain. – In Short
Decorated with family photos of founders Damian Mandola and Johnny Carrabba, the open dining rooms pack groups of friends and extended families into four- and six-person tables and booths; smaller parties or couples can grab stools at the open kitchen's adjoining bar to watch chefs make dinner. The traditional southern Italian menu offers grill specialties like steak Marsala and fire-roasted chicken breast with sun-dried tomatoes; pasta dishes include fettuccine Alfredo and garlic-sauteed shrimp with linguine.
Good food! – We went here early on a Friday night for dinner. There was no wait to get a table although there were some people waiting when we left. I had raviolis with grilled chicken in a tomato cream sauce and it was amazing. I ate my son's leftover spaghetti and meatballs later and it was really good, too. The atmosphere in the restaurant is kind of dark and cozy. The waitress was really nice and came by to check on us several times. The prices were reasonable considering that we had leftovers. My entree cost about $15 (there were several that were less expensive) and the kid's meal was about $5 (but didn't include the drink).
Good Pizza – We had heard a lot about Carraba's, so we were very anxious to try it.
The service was fine, the atmosphere was nice...very busy, but still cozy.
But the food was just average. Nothing bad...just fine. The wood-fired pizza was the best out of everything we tried--the crust was slightly crisp and the sauce was tangy without being overly acidic.
Worth a try.
Great Food! – I think the food here is excellent. Ever since the first time I tried the food at Carrabba's I haven't liked any other Italian restraunts food. Try the Chicken Marsala. It's the best!
