I called the manager over who was very kind and asked him why they changed the recipe and he said he didn't know he asked my friend if she... More

A confession- Other people's kids, especially ones we don't know, lose their cuteness very quickly. So my wife and I, both retired, try to think of something to do away from the house on Halloween. This year, a movie matinee and dinner filled the bill. Many places are closed Mondays, but Carrabba's features "Amore Monday" specials. On top of that,... More

Previously unfamiliar with this restaurant, but very pleasantly surprised. Every consideration, food choices, prep and presentation were very good, decor pleasant and clean, service was very good and reasonable pricing. This is definitely a choice in dining out which will be at the top of my list.

All of the Carrabba's Italian Grills have the same menu, so the service is what then makes the difference. At this location, the service is generally good. However, I must say that unfortunately we will not be eating at any Carrabba's in the future because there is just TOO MUCH SALT in their foods. This is unfortunate because we do... More

This is a very nice and elegant place to eat. We were travelling for a family event and found this Carrabba's in Central Islip. The bartenders and waitresses were very nice and food was very good. Highly recommend this restaurant.

I took my wife on Mothers Day, joining with another two families. There were 9 of us total and the staff did a good job in getting us seated as quickly as possible and the server keep working our table needs well. We all had our drinks replenished 2-3 times without waiting long. The bread was hot and was quickly... More
