Date night

This is one of our favorite date night spots. The food has always been great, I have never been disappointed with anything we have ordered. Service can be hit or miss. Get there early to avoid a wait. Expensive but it's worth it.

Terrible building. It has no acoustic dampening. I could not here my wife talk to me! It only has 6 bar stools. No liquor. Misinformed "specials". Menu needs better descriptions of what it is. Headers could also be in English. Way to expensive for what you get! Servers leaning on your table when talking to you(probably because they can't here),... More

I've been here 20-30 times and I've always been pleased, if not delighted! Their other restaurant SAP is also very good!

Wish my visit to Appleton would have been longer - I would have gladly returned to Carmella's to try out more of their dishes! Everything was good to great. Appetizers to entrees. Side of risotto cooked fabulously and more than enough for 3 or more people to have a hearty taste. Red wine by the glass was a bit lite... More

Reminds me of NYC with the tables so close and the noise, but the food is always good. I have been here many times and everyone always loved their food. There is a chocolate desert thing that is out if this world too!

Food is always great. Warehouse atmosphere makes it a little loud but otherwise nice. The service is good, but the restaurant is popular so if you go at a popular time you probably will need to wait for a table.

By far one of the best bistro type restaurants in town. The food is fabulous. Sandwiches, pasta, panini, soup, salad and dessert...all wonderful. Oh and really good wine selection too. We have eaten here many times and I am always raving about it. I would not consider this fine dining, it is fairly casual and not pricey but the food... More

The gnocchi is a reason to go here all by itself but everything else is great, too! I could make an entire meal from the appetizers. Service is efficient, yet friendly.
