NOW CLOSED: $50 Carrabba’s Italian Grill GC & 2 Free Mini Desserts

carrabba-logo

The Carrabba’s Italian Grill near us is ALWAYS busy and it looked so fancy, we were scared to take our wild children in with us. However, one Sunday morning this past winter before shopping we were in the area and decided to go ahead and try it even with the kids. We were so impressed with how warmth and the friendliest of the staff. Not sure if this is standard practice, but our server brought out dough for the kids to play with…it kept them entertained like play dough! For readers with kids, Carrabba’s offers a Bambino Menu which includes Pizza, Spaghetti, Ravioli, Chicken Breast, and Chicken Fingers priced around $5 per meal.

Carrabba’s serves cuisine based on traditional Sicilian fare with bold flavors inspired by Creole & Southern flavorings picked up by their family stepping off the boat in Louisana on their trek to Galveston, Texas. Their recipes have been passed down for four generations. Sign up for Carrabba’s Amici (friend) Club to receive recipes, cooking tips, special offers, and invites to Amici Club events.

mini-dessert-smallCarrabba’s is also introducing a new line of mini-desserts. They are smaller versions of Carrabba’s most popular desserts – Dessert Rosa, Tiramisu, Cannoli, as well as nightly specials such as Zabaglione, Chocolate Mousse, and Chocolate Espresso Mousse. My mouth is watering right now, is yours?! I love the idea of smaller portions of the best desserts are a great idea. We usually shy away from the desserts when we eat out because the portions are so huge even if you share with a friend. And these little guys are so cute – check them out to the left.

    We love Carrabba’s, but have not been there in a long time…ever since our son was a baby and he’s 4 now. LOL! This would be great! I would definitely order the sirloin marsala and my hubby would most likely get the chicken marsala. :) I would have the chocolate dream for dessert and I know hubby would want John Cole! :)

    I would order the calamari and the lasagna and tiramisu. Matter of fact, that’s what I used to order when I worked within walking distance of Carrabba’s! I haven’t been there in two years now, but I love it and would love to take my wife and daughter there!

  4. 279

    Heather C says

    Here’s my order! :-)
    Zucchini Fritte
    Grilled Salmon
    Tiramisú
    Sounds like a good night out to me! Yum!

    Sara K says

    I love Carrabba’s!!! We have one that’s about 2 hours away so we don’t get to go very often. But that’s the ONLY place we eat when we’re there. When we go back I would order the Grilled Salmon. OMG that looks so yummy!!!!

  6. 283

    says

    YUMMO! MOZZARELLA MARINARA and INSALATA FIORUCCI to start, followed by LOBSTER RAVIOLI for me and the TI PIACE pizza for my husband with mushrooms, sweet peppers, sundried tomato and eggplant. My husband would finish with sangria and I with a smattering of Bacinos. Thanks!

    Laura Cutshall says

    Carrabba’s is easily the best italian chain out there. In addition, it’s the best Italian you can get in Greensboro for anything approaching a reasonable price.

    Our order changes every time we’re there, because they often have seasonal specials that are awesome (occasionally, they have fresh tomatoes with fresh mozarella and that is AWESOME). If there’s nothing seasonal that tempts, we pick up the Calamari, which is always tender, flavorful and delicious. I often get the Mezzaluna, but occasionally pick up another pasta dish. My husband almost always has some form of stuffed chicken.

    The one beef I have with Carrabba’s is – oddly enough – their new desserts. Last time I was there, I wanted a Tiramisu for the table to share, and was offered instead the little layered dessert. Tiramisu is an ART! I’m sad that they’ve gone with the quickie variety and hope the old version comes back.

    Chicken Parmesan with Mozzarella Marinara to start. Chocolate Dream for dessert. Yum. I’ll try to blog later.

    Forgetfulone says

    We would like a glass of merlot and iced tea to start. We will take as much bread and olive oil as you’ll give us. They have the best seasonings. We’ll order sirloin marsala, medium rare, garlic mashed potatoes, salad with creamy parmesan house dressing. We’ll also have an order of Pasta Carrabba. We’ll be too full for dessert, but if it’s free, anything with cheesecake, chocolate, or both will be wonderful!

    amy purple says

    We’d start off with a house salad, then a margherita pizza. It doesn’t list the mini dessert options, it says to ask the server, so something chocolatey would be nice. If we just get salads and a pizza, there’s enough left over to basically go back and get the same thing again. Thanks for the chance! mmm!

    Okay the zucchini fritte and the pasta weesie. Although for appetizers the shrimp scampi sounds wonderful too. For desert the dessert rosa. Thanks for such a great giveaway. This would be worth the drive!

    Kristen Hendricks says

    My order would be MANICOTTI along with a salad with Italian or Caesar Dressing. I would get a Diet Coke to drink with my order. This is a great giveaway and I really hope I win as I love Carabba’s. Thanks for the opportunity.

    Tammy Kennedy says

    Can you believe we have a carrabbas in our town and we have never ate there. I always thought it to be out of our budget but it looks like it would be a reasonable price and with a prize like this our family of 4 could finally try a nice food dish. My 12 year old would choose the calamari as he loves seafood. Sirloin Marsala for myself, for my husnand Pollo Rosa Maria and my 16 year old daughter Chicken Parmesan. Ok now that my mouth is watering and I’m starving send the card my way please.
    Thank you…
    Happy Holiday Season…

    Beverly says

    I’m a new subscriber via email.

    Since I’ve already placed my order, I wanted to comment here on Carrabba’s.
    Carrabba’s traditional Italian minestrone takes a FULL day of preparation! There are 24 different fresh ingredients. This soup is served the day after it is made so the flavors have had time to meld.
    Gosh! I can just taste it now.

  25. 324

    says

    Lets see…Calamari, then lasagna, shrimp scampi for my fiance, pizza looks good too(never had it there), then chocolate dream for dessert. I think we need to take a trip over- your making me hungry. I hope I win- it would be a nice treat for my fiance. Thanks for the giveaway.

    Jenny says

    I love Carrabas!!! My favorite is the Chicken Marsala with the Sogno di Cioccolata for dessert. One time I went there just for the dessert…I ordered chicken cesear salad and only ate a little to save room for dessert. When I ordered my dessert, they told me they were out for the night! I thought I might cry!

  31. 346

    says

    Carrabba’s has a delicious looking menu, not to mention how much my husband loves Italian food! Here are my picks:

    Appetizer: Either the Shrimp Scampi or the Antipasti Platter
    Main Course: Chicken Gratella
    Dessert: SOGNO DI CIOCCO LATA

    Whew! Sounds like a really rich meal!

    Woowee – what an awesome place to go eat and to eat for FREE – now that would be a treat indeedy!!

    Here is my night out with hubby:
    Start off with Calamari. I could just eat a whole plate of Calamari and be perfectly happy.
    Then Chicken Bryan for him and Lobster Ravioli for me.
    Then we sit and talk a few minutes and let things settle a minute before we finish up with Chocolate Dream that we share with a cup of coffee.

    thanks

  37. 368

  38. 369

    ScottsHelper says

    Carrabbas is the FIRST place my husband wanted to go when he came home from Iraq. I know he’d go for his usual yummy lasagne after having the mozarella marinara as an appetizer. I love to try something new each time I visit, so I’d try the Veal Picatta. We both love chocolate, so the Chocolate Dream would be a perfect ending to a most delicious meal!

    Carrabbas is my favorite restaurant! My husband laughs at me b/c despite all the great specials and new dishes my all-time favorite is
    Chicken marsala with the minestrone soup and garlic, mashed potatoes.
    The Desert Rosa is delicious and light as well!

    Thank you

  71. 434

    says

    I’d start with the Zucchini Fritte, but just the small size, so I’ll have room for everything else!

    Maybe a salad or the Sicilian Chicken Soup.

    My entree is the UNBELIEVABLY GOOOOOOOOD Chicken Bryan. (I’m salivating just thinking about it!)

    Desert would be the Chocolate Dream.

    And I think I’m out of money, but I’d have a glass of wine too.

    I haven’t been to Carrabba’s in AGES – this would give me a good reason to go back! My pick would either be the Mezzaluna or Lobster Ravioli with a Mediterranean House Salad. Maybe a glass of Vino Bianco or the Bacino Dolci.
