Carrabba’s exciting new lunch menu

restaurant review by Don Fowler

We’ve been fans of the Carrabba’s Italian Grill restaurant chain since visiting Florida decades ago.

When Warwick Carrabba’s opened, we broke our tradition of only eating at family-run Italian restaurants in Rhode Island and enjoyed our first of many visits to the Route 2 location.

We have never been disappointed.

Carrabba recently added a special lunch menu from noon to 3 p.m. at the most reasonably priced, which should make you think twice about grabbing a quick bite at one of the endless drive-ins along the hallway. very frequented.

Endless Soup and Salad is the bargain of the year at just $7.99. Their Caesar salad is as good as any we’ve had and their soups are the best. All this and a basket of fresh bread and olive oil.

Our favorite is the Lunch Trio ($9.99), which includes the salad and soup and your choice of meatballs and ricotta, prawn scampi. mozzarella marinara or fettuccine alfredo.

The generous portion of salad is accompanied by a bowl of soup. Joyce chose the chicken soup, which has dark meat and tender white meat – the best we found in RI, I always get the same – the sausage and lentil soup, which is enough to satisfy my hunger. Served very hot with a hint of spiciness.

We both chose the scampi with prawns which, brought to the table in a small cup, accompanied by toasted Italian bread, looked a bit thin.

To our surprise and delight, all four prawns were perfectly cooked in a creamy, flavorful sauce, with enough bread to soak up every bit of sauce.

For those with big appetites, the Italian sandwich combo fills the bill ($11.99). You have a choice of chicken, chicken parmesan or meatball caprese, plus a choice of soup, salad, fries, penne pomodoro or sautéed broccoli.

Each menu item lists the calories you consume. All of Carrabba’s dishes are cooked to order.

The regular dinner menu is also available for lunch.
