It's not every day that a chain restaurant leaves a great impression but Carrabba's in Smithtown did just that. We weren't expecting much after going many years ago at a different location, and now we wish there were more on Long Island! We went as a group with the kids, and from start to finish, service was great.

Almost everyone ordered cocktails, with us trying the Pomegranate Martini. It was delicious, sweet and tart all at the same time, I'd definitely order it again or try to recreate it at home. For an appetizer we had the Tomatoes Caprese, which is a caprese salad of tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, red onions, fresh basil and a balsamic reduction. We got the balsamic on the side, and used it throughout our meal because it was so good. I wish I could order a bottle of it!

For entrees we chose the Wood-Grilled Salmon and the Pollo Rosa Maria with fontina cheese, prosciutto, mushrooms and a lemon butter sauce. Everything was cooked like we were at an upscale mom and pop restaurant, not a chain. Our waiter did let us know before we ordered that everything was made fresh to order, and it was obvious by the quality of the food. We chose to have dessert, so we split the Sogno di Cioccolata or "Chocolate Dream," which is a fudge brownie with chocolate mousse, fresh whipped cream and housemade chocolate sauce. It was decadent and rich, definitely for chocolate lovers.

With that said, we were blown away compared to our dining experience many years ago--perhaps you might think it's because we had low expectations going in but I'd say it's more than that. We'll definitely be back if we're in the area!
