Carrabba’s Nutrition Info (Calories, Gluten-Free, Vegan, Healthy)

Carrabba’s Nutrition Info

Italian food is generally very good for you, and on this Carrabba’s Nutrition Info page we’ll show you why that is the case and why Carrabba’s Italian Grill might be one of the healthiest restaurants you ever ate at.

Of course, not all Italian food is good for you. Unfortunately, we’re not going to tell you that pizza is healthy and that Papa John’s is superfood. We know you’d probably love to hear that (we certainly would) but it’s just not the case. However, when you take a little more of the “American” out of “American-Italian” cuisine, when you strip everything back to create a menu that is authentic, then you have a cuisine that is completely healthy and may help to prolong your life.

In this guide we’ll answer the following:

  • Is Carrabba’s Vegan?
  • Is Carrabba’s Vegetarian?
  • Do Carrabba’s Use Good Olive Oil?
  • Is Carrabba’s Bad for you?
  • Is Carrabba’s Gluten-Free?

Is Italian Food Healthy?

Carrabba’s Calories

Italian food is said to be one of the healthiest in the world. That stems from their use of superfood base ingredients, including olive oil and tomatoes. Olive oil may be mostly fat but it’s good fat, and you’ll be hard-pressed to find something that is healthier for your heart, your digestive system and even your mind.

Many other cuisines fry their oils and they tend to use a lot of butter and other animal fats. But that’s to the case in Mediterranean cuisine. They like to use boiled, baked, toasted and fresh ingredients and 99% of the time they use olive oil in its uncooked state. This is when it’s at its best, and it’s one of the main reasons why Italian food is so healthy.

Add some lean meats and fish to the mix, as well as lycopene-rich tomatoes and pasta loaded with healthy carbs, and it’s easy to see why this diet is said to be one of the healthiest in the world. You won’t get a great idea of this just from looking at the Carrabba’s Nutrition Info table above, but trust us, when it comes to healthy food, it doesn’t get much better than authentic Italian.

Is Carrabba’s Gluten Free?

There is a Carrabba’s Gluten-Free menu, which includes a number of options. This includes gluten-free pasta, which is a rare find. This pasta tastes a lot like the normal stuff, albeit with more of a bite. Once you add the sauce, and cook it properly, you barely notice the difference.

There are gluten-free pasta dishes, salad dishes and more. In fact, there are many more gluten-free options than there are vegetarian options, which is rare for an Italian casual dining restaurant such as this.

Is Carrabba’s Vegan/Vegetarian?

Carrabba’s Nutrition

Italian food is generally acceptable for vegetarians. The same goes for all Mediterranean food. They have such great produce in these regions that they are able to create dishes where vegetables are the star of the show, as opposed to meat or fish. You can enjoy decadent cheesy pastas and pizzas, or you can opt for a fresh, vegetable dish.

As Carrabba’s is geared towards American consumers, you will find more meat dishes than you might do at a restaurant in Italy. But they certainly exist. Just make sure you avoid hard cheeses. These use animal rennet and are therefore not vegetarian. This includes parmesan, which is common in Italian cuisine.

As for Carrabba’s vegan options, you’re a little more limited. The good thing is that Italian cuisine uses base ingredients that are vegan. Where French cuisine uses butter and cream, For instance, Italian cuisine uses oil and tomatoes.

What Restaurants are Similar to Carrabba’s?

If you have taken a look at our Carrabba’s Nutrition Info page above, if you’re tempted by our Carrabba’s Menu Prices page and our Carrabba’s Secret Menu and you want to explore more restaurants like this, then you’re in luck. Italian cuisine is the third most popular ethnic cuisine in the US, behind Chinese and Mexican. There is a glut of restaurants like this. However, when it comes to Italian cuisine, things are a little more complicated than they are with other cuisines.

That’s because there are different kinds of Italian restaurants. On the one hand you have the pizza chains like Papa Murphy’s, Pizza Hut and Domino’s. These are not healthy by any stretch of the imagination, although there are some less fattening options available, particularly on the Pizza Hut Menu and the Domino’s Menu, as they both do thin-crust, original Italian pizzas.

There are also sub sandwich chains that sell Italian subs, pizza subs and pasta sides. Such is the case with Potbelly and Jersey Mike’s Subs.

If you’re looking for something a little more like Carrabba’s Italian Grill, then the Olive Garden is one of the best alternatives. These two chains are very similar. There is also the Macaroni Grill, although they have been known to use more salt, more fat and more unhealthy ingredients on the whole.
