Likewise, some Italian restaurants feel like one big family dinner while others feel more like an impersonal experience. For those looking for excellent food and a great environment under one roof, nationwide, there is no better choice than Carrabba's Italian Grill.

The Italian restaurant chain was founded in Texas by an uncle and his nephew -- a true family affair. Their wide selection of authentic Italian recipes are taken right out of their family cookbook, and several of their family members till work in the two founding Texas locations each day, preparing food and perfecting each recipe as it leaves the kitchen.

The chain has grown from two local restaurants in Houston to a nationwide restaurant with over 200 locations, including one location in an airport; Tampa travelers can eat well before their flight leaves, and the company is looking into additional airport expansions in the future.
