I love this location! It is in an easy-to-find location. It is the best Carrabba’s in the area to me. The hosts are amazing and always have very friendly conversation. Whether I order to-go or dine-in, I am thoroughly satisfied with my meal. The food is delicious. Great service

This place is a buried treasure back in the shopping center. Pasta were hot, melty, huge, and delicious. The service after eating and brought a complimentary to our table. It was a wonderful experience. We will definitely be back... and soon. :)

Pasta was not have a good flavor. I hope they can improve this. Food it's very expensive and the quality was not as the price level . The waiter was amazing and sweet on her first day. Manager was very professional. I didn't eat the food and took it out of the bill.

We had a great experience! We ordered and my salad didn't come out. The manager came to the table, offered us free dessert and got me a salad to take home. I wasn't upset about the salad, but they made it right and that makes a huge difference! Food was really good and it came out quick! Will definitely go back!

Serena was an excellent server. She was very attentive without being a bother and very knowledgeable about the food. The food was great. None of us were able to eat everything we ordered. We went on a Monday and the menu that the host gave us didn't have the Amore Monday menu inside. I heard another table ask for them too. It almost seemed like they wanted to hide that great deal from everyone.

My daughter had a long day. We stopped here for a nice meal. Food was awesome and portion size was plentiful. We both made 2 meals out of one. The service was nice and friendly. She had the Weesie w/o shrimp. I had chicken parmigiana with angel hair pasta.

While there is a Carrabba’s that is a bit closer to us, we really like the Carrabba’s in Durham. We find it to be clean and well-run with friendly service and active management. Plus, the food is consistently good. Last night was the first time that we had the opportunity to attend one of Carrabba’s monthly wine dinners and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We were one of the first ones to arrive and we were seated by (we found out later) the Managing Partner. When the senior leader of an organization is actively involved in an event (greeting and talking with customers as well as pouring wine and even serving food), the other staff follow his or her lead and excellent customer service tends to follow suit. This was certainly the case here and our server was outstanding. To say that we were impressed with the wine dinner would be an understatement. The food was excellent (and tasted made to order), the kitchen and servers were on-point, and the wine was very good as well. There was even a raffle at the end and we were lucky enough to win a (good) bottle of wine. At $40.00 each, we thought that this dinner was a bargain. So, we like Carrabba’s, we especially like the Durham Carrabba’s, and we found out last night that we also really like the monthly wine dinner.

Having just moved to this city we wanted to go to a restaurant that we knew. Our first meal was so delicious it is a keeper in my view. The service was excellent the waiter brought a second iced tea before we asked. He came by the table often enough to check on us. I am pleased with our whole experience. .

The food was good and service was good BUT the cooks shut down the grill early and didn't want to heat it back up so we couldn't order any chicken, steak or other food thatv would be cooked on "that grill". We also couldn't have soup only salads, which again were good. What we ordered from the small selection was good and we did get there at 9:15 but they were supposed to take orders up until 9:30. We just stopped in, wasn't a planned meal. We didn't ask but due to the inconveniences we thought they'd offer some sort of discount.

As a first time diner, the food was hot, fresh, and delicious. The service was on point, the greeters opened the door for us and we were immediately seated to our table. Our server was very pleasant and on point, at meeting our needs. The hospitality was great. We will return!

Was meeting family members. Wanted a quiet place to talk. Not many people in restaurant, still Christmas holidays in area with 2 universities. Greatly appreciated the quiet. Service and food were excellent. Our waitress checked on us appropriately and kept our drink glasses filled. Four different entrees were ordered. All were well presented and were delicious. Wish I lived closer. A little pricey, but excellent food and service.

I always enjoy going to this restaurant. Sometimes mistakes happen, but the management and staff always treat me like a VIP, so I have absolutely no complaints. Hands down they're the best, as far as I'm concerned. I have not had anything from there that I didn't like, and if there was an issue they always go above and beyond to fix it. Unlike many other restaurants I have frequented in the Raleigh Durham area. Keep up the great work!

We enjoyed the Pollo Rosa Maria so much we came back the next week! It’s a grilled chicken breast stuffed with fontina cheese and prosciutto, covered with mushrooms and a basil lemon sauce. Best we’ve ever had! The salad was good but the bread was even better. Although it’s a chain, still great food.

What to say about a incredible service that Karon M gave us. Thank you to the crew for everything done. My friend from Brazil loved the food. The price is not the cheapest one, however the service and the quality leaves nothing to be desired in comparison to restaurants in Italy!

Wow, what a nice surprise. I have always leaned towards Olive Garden, but Carrabba's turned out to be much nicer. I will definitely return here. Service and food was excellent at this location!

I am trying to support businesses during this unprecedented time.I picked up take out for a friend. The entrees were very small for the amount of money paid. They had a limited menu so all of my favorites weren't up there. The ceasar salads was mostly brown and I didn't get my full share of bread. The pick up server was very nice, no complaints with service. I probably won't go back for take out.

Excellent food. Maintaining social distancing very well. Renee seemed a little low energy, but still took good care of us. Always a good experience at Carrabba's.

My family and I love this this place. I find particularly pleasant the the vibe of a classic italian restaurant. This weekend they offer the Father's Day Special in addition to the regular and delicious menu. The staff is charming and very attentive. I recommend the blackberry Sangria, Mezzaluna Ravioli and for dessert the strawberry cheesecake.

The restaurant was clean and the service was good. I like the romantic atmosphere but it seemed like it needs a bit of a freshen up, new bright table cloths and refinishing the booths would go along way. The booths are pretty tight as if to fit more in limited space.I got the classic lasagna unfortunately tested like it was cooked the day before and reheated.. arrived barely warm yet the bottom was burned.

This is an excellent Italian restaurant. The prices are fair considering the quality of the food plus the size of the portions. The only reason for four stars is price. This is not an any weekend place. This is for special occasions. Be careful of your budget eating here.

Excellent menu, which they always keep new. The food is always hot and delicious. I just wish they were open for lunch during the week.

Strawberry rose sangria and bloody mary to drink. Stuffed mushrooms, calamari, wings, and mozzarella sticks for appetizers, and lobster ravioli as an entree. Bread with olive oil and herbs, of course! Food and drinks - delicious; service- impeccable! I live close so will definitely return.

If you don’t have traditional Italian restaurant in your neighborhood, Carrabba’s Italian grill is your best option. Delicious food and tasty drink options. This place appears to be good for romantic dinners and meetings. Clean.
