Itailain

Its an independently owned restaurant. We've eaten there several times and each is better than the next.

We have been to Carmella's a number of times and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is nice (it's hard to remember you're in a strip-mall when sitting outside), the wine is good and we've never had anything but excellent service. We live 3 hours away, but plan our mini-vacations with an evening in Appleton so... More

I took someone there for lunch and she ordered something as she has in the past a salad with a substitution. The salmon was over cooked and they charge us 19.00 for a lousy lunch salad with a 4 oz piece of salmon. My risotto was salty undercooked, I did even finish it. This is my 4th time there and...

Very good food and atmosphere but it is so noisy that you cannot carry on a conversation at the table

You will love the delicious food and the variety. Plan on waiting for your table (there is a small bar to wait at), prices higher and portions that you can finish, and a bit noisy environment, yet you'll definitely return. Scallops are beyond incredible!

The food was very good, the service was friendly and attentive even though the place was totally oacked on a Wednesday night. My colleague and I were happy with this recommendation from a few locals. The pasta fagioli was especially good. I was surprised at the total cost...very reasonable.

We visited for the first time on Sat. they were busy but we had a short wait, and it was worth it. I had seared scallops with risotto. and Of course tiramisu for dessert. The food was superb, and the service was excellent. I cant wait to return again

I have been looking forward to being in Appleton next weekend for weeks and finally getting to try Carmella's. I called today to make a reservation for dinner and was told they don't take reservations for parties of 6 or less. Disappointing. But I won't risk waiting 2 hours for a table. I guess another restaurant gets our business. A... More

We have been enjoying this family owned business for many years. My family has had numerous celebrations here, meals with friends, date night and business dinners. The food is always excellent, prepared fresh and they will accommodate your requests. The service is top notch. Excellent selection of wines and cheeses and the desserts are fabulous. Be prepared to wait if... More
