My husband and I along with our 9 yr old granddaughter visited Carabba's for the first time today. We loved everything about it from the service, to the food right down to dessert. Kristen was our server, very sweet and attentive to our needs without being pushy or annoying. I had the Cavatappi Franco.....I could eat this every day!!! Amazing... More

The food here was really pretty average. Honestly, I would go to Olive Garden instead next time. The value is better at Olive Garden.

Good mix of small plates and 1/2 price appetizers and drinks. Friendly staff but waitress a little slow and never filled water glass. Guess I was expected to order another drink since we were in the bar!

Although the food and service was excellent, it is always amazing to watch how management "works." I understand it was game day but management needs to realize how there actions reflect the work of their employees (who then also were very distracted by the game.) The pork medallions wrapped in prosciutto were outstanding. My husband's steak lacked any flavor whatsoever... More

My friend and I celebrated New Year's Day dinner and it was excellent and so was the service. We started at the bar for their Happy Hour and the Martini selection was excellent. The bartender suggested another drink, Prosecia with peach schnaps, really nice and not too sweet. For dinner, calamari, and I had Mama's Chicken Soup, shrimp and scallops... More

This is our favorite place to eat in Independence. The food is delicious and no matter what you order, It's always good. We eat here as often as we can. It's our usual go to spot for holidays, birthdays ect. It's a little out of our budget so we don't get to go as often as we like.

I recently started on a gluten free diet. Carrabba's has their menu clearly marked however the only soup that was gluten free was the minestrone , as indicated on the menu. The proprietor came over and explained that all the soups are gluten free until the pasta is added. He also explained that gluten free pasta is available upon request.

Handy for takeout to my hotel room across the street. The grilled asparagus, wrapped in proscuitto and fontina, drizzled with a balsamic reduction was Amazing!
