Was in the Appleton area with several friends and was informed by our hotel staff that this restaurant would not disappoint us and she was correct. Had lunch there two days out of three and is on our list to return again. I am one of those individuals that just HATES chain restaurants and am always looking for a restaurant... More

For my husband's birthday I was looking for a quaint place to take him out for dinner before we saw a musical at the Appleton PAC. I have always wanted to go to Carmella's, and decided today was the day. We were seated in the back corner, and the meal was perfect. It was quiet and we could easily have... More

Carmella's food is always exceptional as is there staff. It is one of our favorites to go in Appleton, WI. There is normally a wait unless you call ahead or arrive early, however well worth the wait. Definitely a must in Appleton!

We travel to Appleton for work and have been wanting to try Carmella's, but there is always a wait. This time we decided we would wait it out and so glad we did. The service was average, but the food was amazing! We had the calamari to start and then I had the Papperdella pasta dish--it's a must! Will definitely... More

This is a great place for a date night. Call ahead, since there is always a long wait. I really liked the seafood dish I ordered accompanied with a glass of wine.

Great food, good service (friendly staffs). Nice environment and clean.. A bit expensive and long waiting time to be sitted, but worth it.

This was a first time visit to this restaurant for my husband and me. It was crazy busy with a steady flow of people. We had an hour wait because we did not phone ahead to put our name on the list. We enjoyed the ambiance while we waited. The bread served with dipping oil was fabulous. Our seafood and... More

I have been to Carmella's multiple times and have always had great food. The choices are interesting, and while Italian, not typical. The beer selection is excellent.

If you want good Italian, this is your place. A bit pricey however and the bread with the meal is not unlimited. No salad served with lunch which would be a nice touch. Sometimes I would rather go to a chain restaurant to get the bread sticks and salad because I like those things better than my meal itself.

I have been going to Carmella's for a couple of years now and still love each time I'm there. Food is wonderful and the staff is knowledgable of all the items on the menu. It has one of the best atmospheres as well. Very warm and inviting. You won't be disappointed!
