Great food, great service, friendly atmosphere in a strip mall

We stopped here with reservations on a Friday evening and started with appetizers and wine. We were awaiting the arrival of the fourth in our party. Upon arrival the restaurant was really quite empty but it filled up quickly. We were seated toward the far end from the entry door so we had a good... read more

I ate here with a large group and had the Salmon Margherita. I realize salmon is difficult to fix, but this was dry and not particularly tasty. The Caesar salad was nice and our servers were very attentive, even if the service was slow.

Food was delicious. I was especially pleased with the gluten free pasta and bread! Wish they were open on Sunday's when I visit my son at school.

We had a party of 10 for dinner, and the atmosphere and service were excellent for socializing. Our group ordered a variety of dishes (no pizzas), and although I heard no complaints, I didn't hear any great raves either. Our server was friendly and efficient. I had the vegetable panini, which was tasty, plus a draft stout that was also... More

Went with a party of 5. The other four in the party loved their meals I ordered chicken and broccoli which I would give a 3 as it was dry and no real flavor. Waiter was friendly and attentive. Atmosphere was a 4

We always sit at the bar when we go to Carelli's....outside seating is nice in the summer, but is popular and frequently not available on our 'spur of the moment' trips. The bartenders are all very friendly and service-oriented, and occasionally you'll get some live jazz music as an added bonus.

I came for dinner solo after a day long snow storm. I had been thinking of just eating some pizza/beer at a neighboring pizza spot but Carelli's looked MUCH more inviting! (Sorry, no photo.) It was about 8:30 PM and there were plenty of tables available. I'm sure the weather had a lot to do with that. Service was prompt... More

We were very surprised at the cool and eclectic atmosphere at Carelli's. Because it was in a strip center, we were a little uncertain of the location so we did a drive by earlier in the day before our dinner reservation, and we could tell immediately from the nice outside features (fire pit, stone work) that we had made a...

When you pull up to the front of the restaurant it looks out of place in the strip mall its located at, hence the title. We went here for lunch and overall it was mediocre. Very pricey and not very big portions.

We enjoy the food, the ambiance, and the service. We had been there with our son recently, but for our anniversary I decided we ought to return because we enjoyed it so much.
