Founded in 1986, Carrabba’s Italian Grill set out with the goal of creating an environment where people can feel like guests in a Sicilian home. Damian’s grandparents, Vincent and Margaret, immigrated from Sicily to Galveston, Texas in the late 1800s. Damian still recalls his grandmother instilling in him a passion for food as she crafted homemade pasta that hung over two sterilized broom sticks. Johnny’s mother, Grace, is also to thank for several of the unique and authentic recipes that are served daily throughout the nation.

Carrabbas catering blew me away from the moment we walked in the door for our tasting. Every single detail was absolutely perfect, the food was AMAZING, and the pricing couldn’t be beat. I got so many compliments on the food, and I have raved about their customer service. They were so convenient, polite, and overall absolutely wonderful. I would recommend them to any friends and family and am sure I’ll be using them in the future for future events. Everything was perfect, and it made our wedding that much better!!Sent on 06/20/2019
