I've been coming to the one in independence since they opened. The service has steadily declined to the point of no return and now I'm served raw food. I ordered the Johnny as I always do. Ordered a medium steak and was served a raw steak.

Once we were seated, the service was good. Prompt, not intrusive but attentive.

Personally, I would rate the food as just OK...nothing special. I actually like Macaroni Grill's or Buca di Beppo's food better for a chain/franchise restaurant.

I agree with the other reviewer....I wouldn't call this a romantic restaurant but OK for a first date.

Pros: Good service

Cons: Average food and wait time for seating on weekends

We have also had Ashley as our waitress and she is awsome, but again we have meet most of the staff. :)

Try the Fillet Rosa, it's not on the menu but it is the best steak you will ever eat! Also, the chicken trio is a great dish, not on the emnu but it has one of each chicken breast on it.

Three years ago we went there and loved the place. Two weeks later we went back and it was just terrible. Yesterday April 9th we went back to try them again. It was far greater than we expected for the appetizer to the main meal it was fantastic. Our waitress, Ashley, was great. We will make that a regular stop from now on. The two cooks, Damian Mandola and Johnny Carabba have really turned this restaurant around.

The food and ambience at Carrabba's are not bad, but calling it one of Charlotte's most romantic restaurants is a stretch I think. Too many kids and too much noise to be considered a romantic hangout. Still, the food is good and if you hit it at the right time I suppose you could have an intimate conversation with your significant other.

IF you folks think this is the best Italian in town, you apparently haven't had the opportunity to eat good Italian food. Portofino and Mama Ricotta are much better, and much more authenic.

We called for a large party(10) and were told that they do not take reservations. They said they did take call ahead seating so we did that. We arrived when we told them we would arrive. One hour and 15 minutes later we were seated. So my question is "Why Call Ahead?" And why cannot a hostess/host plan the movements better. Upon arriving we were told 15 minutes.

Carraba's has the best Italian food on earth! This is the best place if you want a change from the usual family-owned restaurant with good food but small portions and a lack of atmosphere. I've visited both locations (Pineville & Uptown) and the service was incomparable. The bread and oil with herbs gets you started and the food is prepared right before your eyes (with a good seat). I've waited tables before and, of course, am a picky diner, 2 thumbs up. This is a monthly gathering spot for my friends & me and nice date spot too.
