Carrabba's Italian Grill
4765 South 76 Street
My girlfriends and I decided to stop by to check out this new eatery on 76th Street. It's right across the street from Olive Garden. (How CONVENIENT!)
I was a little disappointed when I saw how packed the parking lot was. I figured that there would be a long wait!
As I approached the building, I noticed how WONDERFUL the aroma was in the crisp night air. And I was pleasantly surprised to see that the place can seat plenty of folks and we were seated immediately.
Upon arrival, a greeter opened the door for us and greeted us very warmly. We were escorted through this wonderfully decorated restaurant to a nice table with a great view of the open concept kitchen. It was fun to watch - without being distracting.
Without getting too detailed - I can say that everything was delicious! I enjoyed the Chicken Bryan along with a house salad and bread bowl. My friends enjoyed their lasagna and all of us toasted to excellent spirits.
Entrées start at about $10.99 and go up to about $19.99. This included the bread basket, soup or salad, and a side dish of your choosing.
The staff was very helpful, prompt, and friendly,
We observed many birthday parties that evening (with Italian singing by the staff and a small dish of ice cream) Also, this place can accommodate small children and infants.
Nice atmosphere with dimmed lights - perfect for a date or a treat for yourself! Enjoy!
