Great place for large parties!

We were up in Craig for a hockey tournament. After the first night, we needed somewhere for the kids, parents, and coaches to eat. The motel recommended Carelli's. We had to be at least 40 patrons. The staff was very understanding and did a great job keeping all the orders straight and getting us... read more

Really good pizza. We went with a large group and the restaurant was very under staffed to handle us even though this was a well planned event. They did not have a enough seating as they said they would so some people ended up using the top of a trash can for a table, not cool. Would eat there again... More

Eat here every trip to Craig. Always save it fir the last night. Have seen the menu grow over the years and the dishes become more advanced. Food is very good and service very friendly. Steaks we ordered were cooked to perfection. The Bombay gin martinis were among the best I've had. My top choice in Craig.

I stopped there twice while I was in town and had the special of the day (steak covered in seafood sauce and scallops). That steak and sauce was some of the best I have ever had! Service was extremely friendly, accommodating, and attentive. On the second visit, we showed up 10 minutes before the opened; but they still welcomed us... More

The food here was amazing! The fact that they offered a gluten free option was even better! House salad was great and the service was amazing. Great place to grab some good Italian food.

Place was packed so wet stood had a beer and talked with the friendly patrons and waitstaff waiting for a table to open. Well worth the wait we had bruschetta while we waited for our... More

As locals we eat at Carellis at least a couple of times a week for lunch or dinner. Their food is always good, the atmosphere is fun and lively and the service is the BEST in town. They offer special dishes in the evening which keeps the menu interesting. A must when you visit the Yampa Valley and Craig

Best place in Craig to get food. On top of that- Best Italian food in Craig Hayden and Steamboat. My favorite place to eat in town for sure. Pizza is NY Style if you are from the EastCoast and know whats up. Excellent. The only downfall is it sometimes can be a 35-45 min wait to get food....but its worth... More
