"Whether it's a special occasion or 'just because', we're extending a warm welcome to come in and enjoy a variety of made-from-scratch courses starting at just $15," said Danielle Vona, Vice President of Marketing for Carrabba's Italian Grill.®

The new limited-time menu provides a variety of entrée options including Champagne Shrimp and Scallops Linguine – shrimp and scallops pan seared to perfection with mushrooms and roasted red peppers tossed with linguine in a champagne cream sauce or Grilled Tuscan Skewers – tender wood-grilled sirloin, red onion and tomato roasted on our wood-fire grill and topped with Chianti wine sauce, served with choice of a side.

Pair the perfect entrée with a choice of an appetizer such as the new, zesty Shrimp Diavolo tossed in house-made lemon butter sauce and topped with pepperoncini, red bell peppers and crushed red pepper – or – satisfy that sweet tooth with Dessert Rosa, a delicious butter cake topped with pastry cream, bananas, strawberries, pineapple and whipped cream. The third course includes a choice of a fresh salad or a soup that's made fresh in the restaurant, like Mama Mandola's Sicilian Chicken Soup.
