Carrabba's Italian Grill was founded by Johnny Carrabba and Damian Mandola in Houston, Texas in 1986. The restaurant features hand-prepared family recipes made from the finest ingredients and prepared to order in an exhibition kitchen. The success of Carrabba's led to the popular PBS cooking show Cucina!, starring Carrabba and Mandola, as well as a series of companion cookbooks. There are currently 240 Carrabba's Italian Grill locations around the country.

Offering Italian-inspired cuisine passed down from our founders’ family recipes, Carrabba’s uses only the best ingredients to prepare fresh and handmade dishes cooked to order in a lively exhibition kitchen. Featuring a wood-burning grill inspired by the many tastes of Italy, customers can enjoy signature dishes, including Chicken Bryan, Spiedino di Mare and a fresh twist on an Italian Classic, Wood-grilled Chicken Marsala. Carrabba’s was voted #1 Italian in the 2014 Consumer Picks Survey by Nation’s Restaurant News.

Copycat Recipe

1 jar of spaghetti sauce
1 sleeve of goat cheese (about 4-6 ounces)
1 loaf of french bread
olive oil
2 garlic cloves
Slice french bread into single servings. Brush sides of  the bread with olive oil. Grill the bread on each side so that it has slight char lines. Rub garlic cloves over each side (this will give a faint garlic taste) In a small serving dish pour heated spaghetti sauce. Top with sliced goat cheese and serve immediately with bread for dipping
