Carrabba's Italian Grill Restaurant Review

: Whether your party includes a local politician or a table of screaming kids, you’re treated as if you’re a guest in a home at Carrabba’s. A wood-burning pizza oven and an open pasta kitchen anchor the cozy setting. Large windows and walls adorned with Italian art wrap around the dining room, making every seat in the house feel like a good one. As to the food, freshness, value and culinary skill prevail. We never pass on the house salad with its garlicky Parmesan dressing. Follow-ups could include the pappardelle Campagnolo with Italian sausage, sweet pepper, caprino cheese and pomodoro; or the rigatoni alla Norma, with sautéed eggplant and ricotta. Hearty steaks and chops please the meat-lovers, but adventurous diners will enjoy Carrabba’s specialties --- including the Pollo Rosa Maria, a chicken breast stuffed with prosciutto and Fontina and topped with a mushroom-basil butter sauce. Beer and wine only at this location.
