We've dined at Carmella's again and again since moving to the area. The food is fresh, delicious, and complex in flavor. The staff are well trained and attentive. You get the same level of experience, regardless of who you have as your server. The ambience is great, especially the patio, but the real draw is the delicious and authentic food.... More

Absolutely amazing food and service! Carmella's started out small, but their expertise on handling food and caring for their patrons has made their business explode. They have expanded twice, and still could use more space. They have lunch and dinner menus. Both are extraordinary. They do a great job in the space they have, but can not accommodate large groups...

We chose Carmella's based on the reviews we had seen. Surprisingly on a Monday night there was a 45 min wait . Not feeling like waiting, we choose another Italian establishment across the parking lot. We left after we were seated knowing we had a mistake. Upon returning we had one of the best Italian dinners I have had outside... More

Enjoyed an early lunch on the back patio on a Sunday morning. The daily special sandwich was phenomenal, fresh food, local ingredients, outstanding service. The coffee was delicious. My friend and I decided to hang out for a dessert cupcake and glass of wine, server was wonderfully courteous and attentive. Don't miss this place, or their sister restaurant a couple... More

From the greeting at the front door, to the several Thank you's when leaving, this restaurant understands customer service and appreciation. The food is all fresh and made from best available ingredient's. even the pasta noodles are made from scratch. The most amazing thing is getting this kind of quality service and food for such an inexpensive price.

We were celebrating birthdays on a Saturday night and the restaurant was very busy. Even so, we were seated after only 10 minutes without a reservation. The menu is inventive and sophisticated with reasonable prices despite the upscale atmosphere. Our waiter, Corey, was helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. We received birthday cupcakes and also ordered the creative and delicious creme brûlée... More

Over the years I have eaten at Carmella's many times. I ate there again yesterday when passing through Appleton and decided to make it a priority to write a review today. The serving staff and chefs always go the extra mile to make the customer happy. My husband and I most often share our entrees and have done this for... More

We went to celebrate birthdays but had no reservation. We were greeted enthusiastically and told it would be about 1/2 hr wait. We sat at the bar and were served pretty quickly considering it was a packed house. 10 minutes later we were seated. Our waiter, Corey?, was friendly, professional and helpful about menu choices and wine selection. Everything was... More
