Nola Looking Fresh in Continuation of Carrabba’s Campaign

Following a do-not-watch-if-you’re-hungry campaign in February, Nola Pictures is back with more delicious spots for Carrabba’s. Director Greg Ramsey teamed up with MMB to execute the work, which focuses on the value and freshness of the chain’s Italian-American cuisine.

Fiorentina Tonight

is a typically robust sampler of Ramsey’s work, with a splashy cornucopia of fresh vegetables, salad, soup, pastas and wine bursting from the screen. The spot strikes from kitchen prep areas to dining tables to introduce Carrabba’s Signature Pasta Meals. Ramsey uses close-up shots of the fresh and steaming food to stoke sensations of taste and smell in the viewer’s brain, driving them to their local restaurant.

“It’s a joy to shoot Carrabba’s,” stated Ramsey. “They use the freshest ingredients, with every dish made to order, so there are limitless visual opportunities. The biggest challenge we faced was stopping the camera and not shooting every delicious and gorgeous food extravaganza created by their chefs.”

“It’s an interesting mission to tell a story mainly with shots of food, and Greg pulls this off seamlessly with MMB in their work for Carrabba’s,” stated Nola EP Charlie Curran. “It’s wonderful to work with MMB and Carrabba’s and have the opportunity to continue the exploration and development of cinematic portrayals of their evolving recipes.”
