Carellis

Carellis has specials on the weekends. I had the salmon oscar the last time we were there. It was delicious. The staff always seems to enjoy their job and that makes me feel welcomed.

After faithfully reading trip advisors recommendations decided we would give it a try. Pizza was good. Not the best but we'll enough for the price. Waitress was slow on refilling drinks. Nice ambience and tight seating . Did I mention waitress was not seen for some time like ten minutes. But yes worth the trip..

I went there for lunch during a business trip and was pleasantly surprised with the menu. I had the "home wrecker" sandwich with garlic bread and it was great. I was very pleased with the service but the beer offerings were limited. The food is fantastic. I recommend Carelli's when you are in Craig.

Very good Italian standards, such as pizza and pasta, but also a marvelous chicken piccata. Several vegetarian entrees: try the pasta 'bags' filled with pears and ricotta and covered in walnuts.

I'm baffled by our bad experience here. After months of planning a trip to Colorado, I was looking forward to having a meal here mainly for a particular dish they have on the menu. After a long wait for drinks and ordering, after eating the salad which was ok, the waitress informed me they were out of this particular dish.... More

I visit Carellis mostly for my lunch breaks. They serve delicious Stromboli, pizza, sausage rolls, soup, etc! It is a bubbly, fast paced atmosphere with friendly service. I am never disappointed by the food!!

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 it. A bit too much. Not... More

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
