Came here for our two years with my boyfriend and the entire night was nothing short of spectacular. When we arrived we were sitting, waiting to be seated and a very obnoxious and rude drunk couple were sitting near us waiting for a cab. Long story short, they made themselves look like fools and were very trashy and rude to... More

Everything was tasted wonderful and very fresh. They have the best calamari I have had in the area. Service was also very good.

This was by far the best meal I have ever had in any restaurant in recent memory. The pork was grilled to perfection, the squash and beans had a grilled flavor to them also. It was the evening special on a Friday night. We called ahead to put our name on the list and were told that the list was... More

I'd never eaten at Carmella's, but I heard it was a place where I should eat. I entered about 7:30pm on a weekday, but the place was very busy. I asked to be seated at the bar if it was faster, and after about a 10-minute wait for a seat at the bar, I got one. The crew behind the... More

True, they do not take reservations. Some restaurants don't. I guess we've been lucky - we have never had a problem getting a table. But we mostly eat here for lunch, or get take out. If we eat here for dinner, we will arrive before the dinner crowd. For us, it's not a big deal. The food is consistently delicious... More

The food at Carmella's is excellent which is why it can be quite difficult to get into. If you have a small party, you are not able to reserve a table which makes date night for parents with small kids tricky. I have never had something I wouldn't try again and the service is outstanding. This is a can't miss... More
