My husband loves spaghetti and meat balls and he says it is the best. All the sauces are homemade and they even sell it. The Chicken Francese with linguini in a lemon wine sauce is to die for!

I've been here several times and it's consistently great! I have to get the pan fried Mozzarella every time.... and I HAVE to get the Shrimp Scampi every time! I crave it! Just the right amount of garlic! Service is always spot on! You've got to try the cupcake for dessert... ask your server what the flavor of the day... More

If I could only give you five reasons why you must eat at Carmella's these would the reasons: 1. The food is outstanding: Made with locally sourced ingredients where ever possible; creative menu; carefully prepared; beautifully plated; reasonably priced. (I personally can't get enough of that bucatini (braised lamb ragu) 2. Service is great: From the hostess/host at the door... More

We've dined at Carmella's again and again since moving to the area. The food is fresh, delicious, and complex in flavor. The staff are well trained and attentive. You get the same level of experience, regardless of who you have as your server. The ambience is great, especially the patio, but the real draw is the delicious and authentic food.... More

Absolutely amazing food and service! Carmella's started out small, but their expertise on handling food and caring for their patrons has made their business explode. They have expanded twice, and still could use more space. They have lunch and dinner menus. Both are extraordinary. They do a great job in the space they have, but can not accommodate large groups...

We chose Carmella's based on the reviews we had seen. Surprisingly on a Monday night there was a 45 min wait . Not feeling like waiting, we choose another Italian establishment across the parking lot. We left after we were seated knowing we had a mistake. Upon returning we had one of the best Italian dinners I have had outside... More

Enjoyed an early lunch on the back patio on a Sunday morning. The daily special sandwich was phenomenal, fresh food, local ingredients, outstanding service. The coffee was delicious. My friend and I decided to hang out for a dessert cupcake and glass of wine, server was wonderfully courteous and attentive. Don't miss this place, or their sister restaurant a couple... More
