My family loves Carrabba's seasonal dishes, including the Limoncello Bread Pudding. Being able to make them at home, when the restaurant is not offering them, is well worth the cost of this cookbook. While not everything they serve is included (use Look Inside for a table of contents) the recipes that are included were absolutely worth the price to me. These have been adjusted for the home kitchen. The ones I've tried execute well. Also included are some minor tips, such as Carrabba's using a propriatary Spanish Olive Oil instead of Italian. ( This explains why I haven't found an Italian oil of similar taste. ) The author also advises not buying diced canned tomatoes as they have been chemically treated not to break down during cooking. These are the kind of practical tips that add value. Too many cookbooks offer useless information to pad the page count. Carrabba's has wisely chosen to produce a thinner book with clean and spare page design. This is a book meant to be used in the kitchen, not toured from an armchair. Great gift for a beginning cook.

You are probably wondering if the recipes in this book are authentic. Well, THEY ARE! :) I have made the chicken soup, calamari, garlic mashed potatoes, and pollo rosa maria so far. Let me tell you, they taste just as good as the restaurant dishes! Definitely recommend this book. It is very affordable and totally worth it! The recipes are easy to follow. I'm surprised it didn't cost more!

I love Carrabba's restaurant and was so excited when I heard that a cookbook was available! I have already made the Chicken Soup and have to say that it was better than my own grandmother used to make! You can totally tell that these recipes are authentic!

My wife is a wonderful cook, and had already requested and received a couple of recipes from our local Carrabba's Restaurant. She grows her own fresh herbs and has about a hundred cookbooks, but spent half a day reading through this one for more ideas.

We really like the herb mix for dipping oil, and the Chicken Bryan is a favorite meal of ours. We think Carrabba's has several very unique and wonderful recipes; great food!

The Sicilian Chicken Soup made a big hit with my family and I'll be making that again and again. The Pollo Rosa Maria has long been a favorite of mine, and now I can make it at home....delicious, and I'mserving it tonight. This weekend, for special company. I'll be serving the Lemoncella Bread Pudding. Ithank you, Carrabbas, for sharing these mouth watering recipes!

My husband and I eat at Carrabba's at least 2-3 times a month and we LOVE their food, so when I heard that they had come out with a cookbook I went right away and ordered a copy. I'm writing this on Christmas Eve because we just finished our first ever Christmas Eve meal for friends and family at our house and I used three recipes from the Carrabba's Italian Grill Cookbook - TOTAL win!! I fixed all but one of my side dishes from their cookbook and everyone went nuts and wanted to know where I got the recipes.

If you're looking for easy-to-follow recipes with a lot of WOW-factor, then pick up a copy of the Carrabba's cookbook - you won't be disappointed. They did an excellent job of making the directions simple enough for the novice cook who doesn't have access to the Carrabba's professional kitchens. I was concerned that the steps would be too complicated, but each of the dishes was easily made in my home kitchen and required no fancy tools or expensive, hard-to-find ingredients. With simple step-by-step instructions, I was able to create dishes that were similar to what we order at Carrabba's, and my guest were totally impressed.

Overall - HIGHLY recommend this cookbook!

I love Carrabba's... in particular, their Chicken Bryan. I have tried copycat recipes that never measured up. In this book, they give the real recipe which also includes broiling instructions. Turns out I have been broiling too close to the heat source my entire life! Who knew? So this single recipe has altered how I broil every single boneless chicken breast that comes into my kitchen. The lemon-butter sauce used in the recipe can be used for pasta, pork and fish as well. The grill seasoning used in this recipe I now use for all my broiled and grilled beef and chicken. It would probably work for pork as well but I haven't tried it.

Using these recipes at home aren't exactly the same as eating at Carrabba's (I don't have access to a wood fueled grill) but they are as close as you can expect at home and much better than the copycat recipes I have attempted in the past. In particular, the Lemon-Butter sauce is amazing. (This review refers to the e-book version)

This book has recipes to some of our favorite dishes from Carrabba's! The recipes are easy to follow and calls for ingredients that are readily available in our local grocery store so there is no need to shop at specialty stores for ingredients to follow the recipes. This made a perfect gift paired with a small bottle of olive oil!
