As expected, Carrabba’s has very limited options available for vegans. It’s an Italian restaurant so naturally, there is cheese and butter in almost everything. Unfortunately, most restaurants of this sort just don’t cater to vegans and consequently, their menu leaves a lot to be desired if you happen to live a vegan lifestyle. But, at least there is one vegan pasta dish and of course, there are salads. Oh and I forgot to mention THE BREAD! I absolutely love dipping warm crusty bread in some herbs and oil, so this excites me. So you do have a few options if you end up eating here.
Salad with red wine vinegar and oil.
As far as pasta goes you can order any dry pasta. Just not any of the fresh ones because they contain eggs. (The server should know which pasta’s are dry). The Pomodoro sauce and the Tag Pic Pac sauce are both vegan, so you can order those with dry pasta and that’s great because they both sound delicious.

* I used the nutrition information chart available on the Carrabba’s website to determine which items were vegan, based on the absence of cholesterol, since cholesterol is only found in animal products. They did not have an allergen or ingredient information chart on their website. You should check with your local Carrabba’s staff to make sure they don’t use butter or any other animal products on their vegetables or sides before ordering.
I am secretly hoping that someone invites me to a group dinner at Carrabba’s because the bread with herbs and oil is calling my name right now.
