We have been to Carmella's several times. This visit was to celebrate some friends' engagement. It was a Saturday evening, they were quite busy and they do not take reservations. We did call earlier in the day and they put our name on a wait list. We were able to sit at the bar to wait. The bartender helped with... More

This is our go to special occasion restaurant. The chicken marsala was amazing. Everyone's meal was great. Desserts are awesome. I can't say enough about the service. I think the prices are reasonable for the amount of food you get. I can't wait for the next special occasion which will probably be in a week or two!

Two friends took me to Carmella's for my birthday and I thoroughly enjoyed it! For a Monday night, it was packed! They only take reservations for parties of 6 or more but they do take call aheads - two per time slot and it was a good thing we did! Our server, Christy, was fabulous! Her recommendations were spot on... More

Wow. In a sea of other fantastic reviews for this place, let me sum it up by saying call ahead (they don't take reservations but you can put your name on the list for a time and wait less than those who did not call ahead), expect to wait, but realize it is completely worth it. There were MASSIVE expectations... More

My husband and I went Christmas shopping in Appleton (we live an hour and a half away) and don't have the opportunity to enjoy a quiet meal together very often. Usually we get something quick in the food court, but decided to try Carmella's because we could see the building from the Toys 'R Us parking lot and I LOVE... More

I try to have lunch at Carmella's when in the area. I love their pasta fagioli soup and beet salad. The restaurant uses fresh quality products. It's close to the mall and a perfect stop when shopping in the area. They recently opened another restaurant SAP in the same strip mall area. This was also awesome!

BEST Italian in the fox cities. Service is incredible, wait staff and managment is very customer focused. Menu is original. Loved the fried cheese and calamari for starters. Ambiance reminds me of NYC or Chicago. Great for business, family, or couples.

I visited this restaurant with a few friends. Tucked away in a shopping mall, it is easy to pass by. However, I suggest you turn around and give it a shot. This was some of the best Italian food I have had in a awhile. The ingredients are fresh, creative and full of flavor. Fresh bread made things better. The... More

My wife and I have eaten here many, many times. It is the place we go if we want a truly excellent meal. They serve very creative Italian food. A Dover sole recipe that I had several years ago sticks in my mind and palate as one of the best meals ever. We spent 7 weeks in Italy a few... More
