I had been wanting to dine at Carrabba's for a long time, and finally got the chance. WE WERE NOT DISAPPOINTED! My boyfriend and I enjoyed the delicious and savory food, the ambiance, and the courteous and attentive waiters and waitresses. We had enough food to be able to take home a "doggy bag." And the next day, the food was even better. Having lived in Italy for seven years, I enjoyed the decor and the "vino." I had been looking for a nice Italian restaurant to remind me of what I miss most about Italy--AUTHENTIC ITALIAN FOOD. As the saying goes, "if it isn't broke, don't fix it"--eventhough Carrabba has great food, I wish they would one day consider doing a complete antipasta bar. I think their setting would be perfect for one. Although we are unable to journey to Carrabbba's often due to distance from Bellevue, we think about it all the time and look forward to enjoying it once again. KUDOS CARRABBA'S--IT WAS WELL WORTH THE WAIT!!!

Whoever can say "Olive Garden" is better then Malara's would probably be one to say Faazoli's is as Italian as it gets. Malara's has friendly servers and a quite relaxed atmosphere. It's tucked away in a little residential neighborhood, definitely a diamond in the rough. If you manage to stumble upon this hidden treasure consider yourself extremely lucky. The inside is beautiful as well, great for a romantic date or family dinner. Authentic Italian food made by the same little woman it has been for years. The portions are gigantic and taste DELICIOUS! You also recieve bread and butter before your meal and I usually get some to-go. Just another plus about Malara's. Nothing but good things to say about it, it's one of those places after you go, you're sure to tell your friends about it. Love it, love it, love it!!
Our experience here was very mixed. This is another strip mall restaurant cozied up to a bar next door. Ambiance comes across as trying to be WAY too trendy with a menu that begs to be upscale but ultimately ends up missing the mark. Unlike the previous poster, I felt that portion sizes were adequate. What was missing was flavor. Both of our meals were unexciting. Back to the "ambiance". The color scheme feels a lot more like a bright and cheery breakfast bar versus someplace that you would go for dinner. With that thought, a nice breakfast spot at this location would probably do quite well.
