Carrabba's Italian Grill

We were seated quickly on a busy Friday night at Carrabba's on Kildaire Farm Road.
We started with fried zucchini, which was -- No, wait, we actually started with bread and herbed oil, while we were waiting for our food. Delicious. We had to hold back on the bread and olive oil because our dinner was coming. We got an order of fried zucchini, which came as small sticks, like French fries, and not spears as I was expecting. The zucchini and sauce was great, and I wondered if we should have just ordered appetizers, instead of a meal. (Boy and I love getting a bunch of appetizers instead of ordering entrees.
I got a white wine sangria, and Boy had a Peroni, an Italian beer. He loves Peroni, so his rating probably doesn't count here. The food was a bit slow in arriving, probably because they were so busy, but with the bread and out drinks, it didn't matter too much.
For dessert, we were offered a selection of little layered treats in shotglasses. Some had fruit and custard, one was chocolate mousse, one was tiramisu. Even though they were delicious, we couldn't finish them.
I was a bit surprised by how high the price was, but I suppose with drinks, an appetizer and dessert, it was to be expected.
