    Could cut the steak with a fork. Excellent wine list. Perfect dessert wine picked by the bartender.

    One of the best Italian restaurants I've ever been to. Independent of the regular Carrabbas chain, this is the original. Great date place.

    Everything is good, but you can't beat a house salad, pasta Carrabba, death by chocolate and an excellent wine list. Service is always great but I usually sit at the bar, even with a date.

    Good service, garage parking is a good alternative to valet. I like house salad and soup. Great herb dipping sauce for hot crusty bread.

    The Stuffed Shrimp Mandola is really, really good. And the lentil soup and the calamari are strong choices for appetizer.

    If you're going low budget order mamas chicken soup & house salad. Soup is inexpensive but amazing & their creamy salad dressing is unlike any other and you won't leave feeling guilty.

    Great Food! Been going there since the only 2 Carrabba's were the 2 in Houston (Voss and Kirby) - every other Carrabba's is owned by Outback and doesn't shake a STICK at this restaurant...

    The lasagna here is really incredible and there's not a better "house" salad anywhere. This is the original Carrabbas, since 1986.

    They won't see me here again for anything but their delicious desserts. How can an Italian restaurant not serve gnocchi!? That's like a French restaurant not serving French onion soup! Great wine.

    See, the food is great, but they don't serve gnocchi. It's like the italian must-have! Wine selection and desserts are to die for though.

    The lentil sausage soup is large enough for two. You'll want to split it with someone. Plenty of staff to take care of you while you wait for your friends or table.
