I love carbs — unfortunately to the dismay of my personal trainer. It is my weakness, my kryptonite. So when my brother asked me where I wanted to eat, we decided to try out Carraba’s (a nationwide Italian restaurant chain). I ordered the linguine with clams and my brother got ti piace pizza (a build your own style of pizza) with Italian sausage, pepperoni and mushrooms.
The linguine was buttery without being too rich, and the serving size was very generous. I really enjoyed the pizza because of the thin crust and the fact that they didn’t use marina sauce which can give me heart burn.
The menu also featured other seasonal foods, which I would be interested in trying next time. The ambiance was kind of dim, which suggested a romantic feel — something I thought was odd for a lunch with my brother. However the staff was very attentive and helpful.
