Carrabba's Italian Grill


I have been wanting to try this chain restaurant for quite a while.  We decided to give it a try on a Saturday night.  We were seated immediately.  It took quite a while for our waitress to come for our drink order, but that was okay because I was busy studying the menu.  The menu didn't have as many pastas as I expected. I didn't see much that I wanted to try.  It took me quite a while to make a decision on what I wanted.

We started out our meal with an appetizer.

Our appetizer: Calamari, Roasted Tomato Bruschette and Mozzarella Marinara
 I wasn't impressed the appetizer. The mozzarella sticks were somewhat greasy.  I didn't care much for the Bruschette.  Jeff said the calamari was okay.

I ordered the Veal Marsala with garlic mashed potatoes and a side salad.

 The veal and potatoes were both good.

The salad was also good.  It had a few black olives which I liked.

Jeff ordered a pasta with shrimp.  He was not impressed. It was very light on the sauce and didn't have much flavor.

Would we eat here again?  Maybe.  It is somewhat pricey, but most Italian places are.  My food other than the appetizer was good.  Our waitress was very nice and good.
