Fantastic Evening Out

My fiancee and I went to Carmella's last Saturday night for the first time. Well worth the drive down from Green Bay! They don't take reservations, and by the time we had called late Saturday morning, their "call ahead" list was filled for the evening. We got there shortly after 5:00, and were... read more

Other reviewers mention the wait. On a Saturday in February, at 6:00 PM, it was over an hour. The dining room is spotless and attractive. It's a little bit crowded, a little bit frantic, and a little bit loud. Our server was professional. Bread is served with a herb-infused olive oil ... you could pour that stuff on a catcher's...

I have eaten at Carmella's numerous times. The food is consistently good, and their service is excellent. It would be nice if they had a full bar, not just beer and wine. Also, I prefer to eat there for lunch vs. dinner only because it is easier to get in, and you can still get the same food from the... More

Excellent menu of truly awesome, authentic Italian cuisine! They are very picky in choosing the very freshest ingredients possible, many times using locally grown products in support of the community. Our fav's include their roasted beet salad - absolutely incredible! Their seared sea scallops constantly make my mouth water simple thinking about them, but the real treat for an app... More

The restaurant is a great place. The food is very good and reasonably priced. We like to go here for special occasions. The only thing that does get frustrating is that they give priority to people that are their regulars. Be prepared for people to get seated before you that came in after you.

This is by far my favorite restaurant in Appleton which means I am here quite often. The tomato bisque is quite lovely as is the Fusilli, Chicken Francese and Tenderloin. All are my favorite dishes. The daily cupcakes are always the highlight of my visit!

Love their wine list and menu. Its a fun, neat atmosphere. The food is fresh and well-prepared. The presentation is nice. The food is pricey, but the environment makes up for it. Great place to meet up with family and friends.

I would recommend a visit to Carmella's if you enjoy authentic Italian food and wine. Be sure to make a reservation as it is usually quite busy during lunch and dinner hours. I found the wait staff excellent and the food fresh, flavorful, and well worth the price. This may be a nice get away for a romantic evening or... More

The food is consistently great. The service excellent. I eat here often. Prices are reasonable for quality received. A great place for a nice lunch; dinner here is fabulous. I've eaten at most of Chicago's trendiest, and this ranks right up there. Awhile ago, I had a dinner of Mediterranean bass for two, and it was better than Charlie Trotter's.
