Spiedino was amazing, scallops perfectly dusted in flavorful seasoning and cooked to perfection! Sangria is always yummy! The staff are friendly and efficient. The only issue I would mention is the garlic smashed potatoes were tepid, but the scallops hot-so perhaps the potatoes were not fully warmed, or waited on the plate while the scallops cooked.

We ate here some time ago and decided to try it again. I had the cioppino and it was excellent. e also had the tilapia which was average. Nice sized house salads. Our waitress Renee was pleasant and efficient. A nice dining experience all around.

Carrabba’s on Columbiana Drive is atop my list of medium-priced Italian restaurants suitable for entertaining guests and celebrating special occasions. Our recent visit to honor a newly-minted Marine was thoroughly enjoyable. The ambiance of this Carrabba’s is just fine, and despite the fairly large size of our group (10) and some complicated orders we got wonderfully attentive service (thank you... More

If you want to experience great italian food, you need to go to Carrabba's. The food is excellent and the service is awesome. It is a good family place to go for dinner. The prices are in the $$$ range, but you get your monies worth of great food. I will be going back again and again.

The food was better than I have expected from an Italian chain restaurant (e.g. Olive Garden). The food came quick and the service was excellent. We had the Fettuccine Weesie (very good) and the Prosciutto-Wrapped Shrimp (a relatively small serving but tasty)

Service was ok- we chalked it up to them being packed, but the server got my husband's order completely wrong. The food was still delicious, it was just not a lot for the prices (Chicken parmesan came with a big piece of chicken, but no pasta, for example). We each had 2 drinks and an entree. Bill was $80,

My family and travel a lot and no mater where we are the Carrabba's Italian Grill chain seems to be very consistent. This location is no exception, our food was great, and our server Alex was great. He was friendly, professional, and thoughtful. The kids menu offers good options for my kids and is reasonably priced. My steak wasn't that... More
