Carrabba's is a wonderful place to get a fantastic meal, particularly if you like chicken--they employ a Wood Fired Grill, and the taste permeates the meat, as well as all the pizzas they make. You can't go wrong picking anything on the menu.
The food is awesome at Carrabba's. They have a special that is not on the menu called the Chicken Trio which is wonderful and you'll have some leftovers to take home. The garlic mashed potatoes are really good and save some room for desert. They also have buy one get one free cocktails if you go early enough in the evening. Definitely a great place to good for the good food.
I love the food, especially the margherita pizza. The cannolis are good too and so is the bread. It's one of my favorite restaurants. And also you probably want to call ahead, to put your name on the list, because the wait is really long. But definitely worth it.
Word of advice... if you want to get away from all the chain restaurants in Syracuse, Carrabba's is definately the place to go. The service is pretty good, it's just getting past the wait at the door on a Friday or Saturday night that's outrageous!! The food is delicious and portion size is not too overwhelming, just make sure you save room for the desserts because from what i've tasted, they are out of this world.
Wrote a review here and it's been deleted twice.....i bet that owner makes sure he takes care of that. Good luck if you eat there. waiters wipe their nose' and mouths and then hand you your food! OLIVE GARDEN may been a chain but its clean
