I only made one item from the cookbook so far...the Sicilian Chicken Soup...and although it was a nice soup recipe, it was not the same as what's served in the restaurant. The one served at Carrabba's has a nice kick to it, while the one in the book has none, so I was a little disappointed as that recipe was the reason I bought the book in the first place.

Worth the price just for the Marsala sauce recipe, which turns out to be not only do-able with moderate cooking skills, but also much healthier than we expected for such a decadent taste. Mushrooms now have a permanent place on our shopping list.The meatballs recipe is true to what's served in the restaurant... we had a funny moment after I served them to my family, when I realized that I, myself, don't care for Carrabba's meatballs. I had forgotten, right up until I took that first taste!My teen daughter recreated the lemon butter sauce for shrimp from the recipe on page 140, and once again, the results were true to the taste of the restaurant.If you enjoy the food of Carraba's, and enjoy cooking, this is a highly reliable guide. I very much appreciate that the recipes are obviously "kitchen tested" and true to the Carraba's menu.

I love this book. I have tried several recipes and they are great! I wish there was a Carrabba's near me. I used to go to the one in Montgomery, Al. Was wonderful every time.

My husband and I were a bit doubtful about our first time meal at Carrabba's, as it is a part of a chain. However, it only took that one time to realize our doubts were a hugh waste of time. We have never been disappointed with the food nor the service. I would recommend this restaurant to any lover of great Italian food. Enough said!

Nook or the Cookbook software doesn't allow access to printer so it hard to use when you are bussy cooking. A hardback would be much better.

If you have had the opportunity to visit a Carrabba's Restaurant, this Cookbook has the recipes for foods eaten there. If you have not had the opportunity, these Italian recipes are easy ingredients, easy directions, and mouth-watering food. Also, the writing background for the Family and for the recipes are great. Would recommend this Cookbook to everyone--it is A++++.

Some recipes from Carrabba's I will leave for them to make but some are great to serve at home and this book provides most of my favorites.

I recently placed an order for this cookbook since both my husband and I are such ardent fans of Carrabba's, and I am hoping to be able to duplicate some of their delicious recipes at home. Although I haven't yet tried out any of the recipes in this cookbook since I received my copy of this cookbook, I cannot yet vouch for the authenticity of these recipes. However, in looking over all of the recipes, I am impressed with both the layout, as well as the easy-to-follow directions in all of the recipes, so I have every reason to believe that I will enjoy preparing many of the dishes that we have had when we have dined at Carrabba's Italian Grill.
