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

Excellent overall dining experience. Everything prepared had unique flavors and were presented in a very attractive manner. The service was exceptional which made the dinning experience even better.

We had dinner here during the week. The restaurant is located in a shopping center and the atmosphere is modern. It's a bit noisy there, but when we went, there were a lot of people there. Everything we had was fabulous, from the bread, which was exceptionally good, to the fresh salad, to the entrees and dessert. Our waiter was... More

We found this restaurant on TA during a recent convention. It was rated as "#3 out of 314" in Appleton WI...well next time we need to figure out what was #1 and #2 as this was excellent. Our server was great...perfect timing, very friendly, and kept our dinner moving at a very nice pace. The food was fantastic. I had... More

The menu was confusing for me....couldn't pronounce most of what was on the menu. The waitress was most helpful and what I had was delicious. Four of us were eating together; we all raved about our food. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. Not only our waitress, but other staff members checked to make sure we had everything we...

This is by far the best Italian food I have ever had in a restaurant. Everyone at our table of 14 simply raved about their food. A must stop if you are in the area. The service was fantastic and while everyone at our table was from out of town it is obviously a local favorite as well. I cannot... More

My husband and I just visited Carmella's for dinner on a Monday evening. The food is really very very good. I had the house salad and saltimbocca. The saltimbocca and the bread were fantastic. I would rate this a 5, but my husband and I both thought that the house vinaigrette was a bit too bitter, or maybe there was... More
