An open kitchen churns out wood-fired pizzas and fresh-made pastas at this casual Sicilian-American chain.. In Short Decorated with family photos of founders Damian Mandola and Johnny Carrabba, the open dining rooms pack groups of friends and extended families into four- and six-person tables and booths; smaller parties or couples can grab stools at the open kitchen's adjoining bar to watch chefs make dinner. The traditional southern Italian menu offers grill specialties like steak Marsala and fire-roasted chicken breast with sun-dried tomatoes; pasta dishes include fettuccine Alfredo and garlic-sauteed shrimp with linguine.
Emphasis is on service at Carrabba's. There were several servers working to keep our drink glasses full. The food is outstanding (especially the grilled chicken dishes) and the menu offers a variety of options. There is sure to be something for every palate. Some seating is more romantic than others and the staff is more than willing to accommodate a romantic evening for two as well as dinner for the whole family.
