Always great

Best restaurant in the valley. Usually take friends and clients coming from out of town here. Upscale but not stuffy, great for dates as well. Lots of great menu choices

Restaurant is overrated and over priced. Loud, (couldn't hear yourself think) too many tables in a small space and arrogant server.

As full time travelers, we have dined all over the world. Carmella's definitely rates among our favorites. Everything about it - atmosphere, service, food - is terrific. We loved the ability to choose a variety of small plates - cheeses, meats, vegetables etc. Everything is fresh and local. This restaurant alone is worth a trip to Appleton!

When they first opened I loved the food - over the years I feel the food quality has gone downhill. The staff is always fantastic and it's a relaxing environment.

Had lunch on the weekend. Nice atmosphere, sat outside. Menu a bit overwhelming and could be shortened. Had a salad and added shrimp. Very good, jumbo. Waitress was on the ball.

We went here on my birthday. It was excellent. The food was really good and the perfect portion. The pasta was excellent and the closest I have been able to find (so far) to the pastas we had in Rome. Our waitress was attentive and friendly.

Very disappointed This was highly recommended and we expected a lot. The menu comes without prices. I ordered shrimp scampi and had 3 small shrimp on a plate of noodles. Not my idea of shrimp scampi. Very expensive for what you get

Only had an hour to eat and the waitress took good care of us even though the place was really busy. We both had different Panini sandwiches and they were excellent. Had our own 2 person table back in a corner and it was very romantic. Great food and good service - just what we like.

Love the atmosphere, food, and fantastic customer service. The hostess is top notch!! We typically share a dessert because we are full from lunch but can't resist their desserts!! You won't be disappointed eating there!
