Everything from burgers to steak. Stopped for lunch and had a chicken Palermo dish. Really tasty. Ample size and very reasonable.Service is very good and it is quiet.You can go for a lunch break. Recommend it very highly.

My book club met for a holiday Dinner, & the food was very good! Yes, it was rich, but very tasty for a special occasion. I had the Chicken Limone -- wonderful! I heard that the ravioli, manicotti, & veal marsala were good. The garlic rolls -- addictive. And excellent salad. Too full for dessert. Great service too! Will be going back....

We were in town visiting a friend which was familiar with Carrabba's but we hadn't ever been. We found the atmosphere very comfortable, the food and service was great, and it was moderately priced. We would definitely eat here again.
