Fodor's Review

After all these years, the original location of Carrabba's remains the busy and quintessential Inner Loop destination for reliable, Americanized Italian cooking. This location is not part of the national chain: here the founding families retain control and you can tell the difference. From steaming vessels of robust pasta dishes (heavy on the garlic) to crusty pizzas and hefty grilled meats, the kitchen fires on all cylinders to keep the customers happy. Service is fast

and ultra-chummy, and servers will even sing an Italian song for your birthday if you so desire.

A Family Tradition

Carrabba's is a Houston family tradition - always deliciously reliable, outstanding food, lively atmosphere. We've celebrated several birthdays with family here over the years. Highly recommended!
