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.

Carrabba's Restaurant Recipe

Serves 6

6 oranges
several sprigs of fresh mint or 1/2 cup mint leaves
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
kosher salt and freshly-ground black pepper to taste

Peel the oranges, removing all the white pith beneath the skin as well. Cut the oranges into 1/2-inch rounds, removing any seeds, and place the slices on a platter.

Wash mint leaves and cut into ribbons with scissors, or tear each leaf into 2 or 3 pieces. Sprinkle the mint leaves over the orange slices. Add olive oil to small bowl and season with salt and pepper. Mix well. Pour the olive oil mixture over the oranges.

To serve: Allow oranges to marinate for 30 minutes before serving.
