A great experience. Our waiter was a little touchy/feely as we were two women out for dinner, but none the less still very knowledgeable. I had fetticine with peas, pancetta, and parmesan. It was very good. I can't wait to try other things on their menu and take my fiance there.

This is hands-down the best Italian restaurant in the area. I have had several menu items and they never fail to impress. The food is always wonderful. The ingredients are fresh and as local as they can get. Their wine list is excellent and they also serve many craft beers on tap. The wait staff know their stuff and never... More

When I travel to WI I get to go out with a dear friend of mine and he loves to go to new restaurants. We chose Carmella's on my last trip there. It can get a little loud inside the restaurant with the high metal ceilings, but we arrived early, got a wonderful table at the far end of the... More

Although you enter through a long narrow passage, Carmella's is a little jewel nestled next to SAP Bakery and Penzey's Spices. The food and menu bring to mind my visits to Italy. The waitstaff is courteous and professional, and the restaurant is clean and inviting. Prices are on the higher end, but not unreasonable for the quality and portion size.... More

Almost all my friends love this restaurant. I think the food is just fine. This type of over-styled, AmerItalian food with its heavily dressed, rather soft pastas are not my preference. That said, for what is is, I think it is just fine. I am also not a fan of the strip-mall aesthetic, but it doesn't seem to bother others.... More
