Fine place

This is an okay restaurant, not the best. The servers are okay, you can tell they're not too experienced. The chefs are really nice, though. You can tell they care about the quality of their food. The pizza is pretty good. The margarita pizza literally tasted like it had several pounds of garlic in... read more

They have the BEST pizza crust! The mussels app is awesome! But would you believe they have STEAK TOO! The only place in town to eat Lunch or Dinner! Oh yeah and if you like craft beers...they have great IPAs...always something new to try! :)

We dined on New Years Eve. The restaurant was very busy and reservations were required for the dining room. The special was prime rib, crab legs or prime rib and crab. Two of us had the surf and turf and the other two had the sausage lasagne. The prime rib and crab legs were prepared excellently, and the taste was... More

We all loved our food! We ordered the Money Bags with pears and gorgonzola which is excellent. I have a recipe I make at home with pears, Gorgonzola, toasted Pecans and pasta. Two of us had Calzone's and they are huge! We each eat until we were quite full and the next day we had enough leftover for four people!... More

We liked Carelli's so much the first time we ate there that we ate there again the next night. The strombolis are awesome, our youngest claims the pizza is delicious and the sausage lasagne is also very good. (The strombolis are huge so plan on one for the table or plan on leftovers.) They have great beers on tap and... More

Probably the best food in Craig. Don't be in a hurry though, be ready to have a draft beer or a glass of wine and enjoy your visit because sometimes it akes a while to create perfection!

I love the variety of food, especially the Stromboli And the chef salad! Not your box-store Italian food. The restaurant is a little cramped with a ski-bum decor. But they do take-out!

If you're into Stromboli, you've found the spot! Colo- Wyo is my favorite. Yours also if you like jalapeno. Named after local coal mine south of Craig- taste it, and you'll see what I mean! Carelli's is also a very tasty stromboli. Get there early- it's the locals favorite!

Had the Steak Carelli. Cooked just as requested. Bernaise was as good as anywhere in the world. House red was a great Classico. A little dark. Go to the back room. I recommend it highly.

The place was very busy when we walked in which is always a good sign for a restaurant, and we weren't disappointed. The waiting staff were very pleasant and helpful We had starters which were excellent and then both of us had lasagne, portions were huge and the lasagne was one of the best I have eaten. A lot of...
