Always consistently good! Great quality food and wonderful atmosphere. Hard to get a table at times and no reservations accepted if under 6 people coming which I wish they would change but very friendly, professional service.

Carmella's is our go to place for a great meal in a fun and sophisticated atmosphere. My husband and I love the food, the service and the excellent wine list. I'd eat there every week if I could.

Delicious, fresh and well-portioned food! Wait staff was very nice and helpful when needed. Doesn't take reservations for less than parties of 6 but, if you call after 10 am the day you will be going there at night and give them the time you'll be there you get a sort of "head of the line" privilege at that time....

We took my son here for his birthday. The food is amazing. They also gave him a free dessert for his birthday. The dining room can get very loud if it is busy.

What a great find while taking my team out for dinner when I was in town. Good food and wonderful service. We went on a Wed. night, so there was no wait, but I'm told the weekends have long waits and limited space in the waiting area. They do not take reservations, but you can call ahead for seating which... More

This is what an Italian restaurant should be. Fresh food, knowledgeable waitstaff, intimate atmosphere. The selections are vast, and the combination of flavors are top notch.

The über generously portioned House Salad ($5) that overflowed with freshness came perfectly dressed with a house made vinaigrette (this could easily feed two) followed by steaming bowls ($4 each) of homemade tomato bisque (for me) and a bowl of seafood chowder (for my friend) would make anyone scream "YUM!". Pair this with generous pours of moderately priced wine by... More

Great food and atmosphere for business or pleasure. Each visit has been consistent in its service and food quality/freshness. The appetizers are some of the best I've ever, particularly the Mozz/Bacon/Tomato stack.
