Hubby & I took a motorcycle ride to Dunnellion for supper. The place we wanted to try was closed on Monday. Decide to try Carmela's instead. Very good experience. Greeted by a very friendly waitress. Large menu but no huge. Prices were very reasonable. I had shrimp scampi & hubby had chicken & broccoli fettuccine. Both were excellent & we... More

Awful. How can breakfast be awful? Go there and you will see. Sorry but not my idea of food. Canned fruit, terrible food. Nothing fresh.

My in-laws live in the area and took our family to Carmela's for dinner. The restaurant is small and unassuming but serves up some tasty food. The menu had lots to choose from but appears to specialize in Italian. Several specials were listed on the board and I opted for one of those. The meatball and tomato sauce had a... More

Liked everything about this place, well maybe not the open time of 8AM. We're early risers. Very nicely decorated, waitress tops, and best of all the food.

I rediscovered Carmela's on Christmas Eve when I had family in from out of town and they were open and taking reservations. They used to be just Italian but have now have more variety on their menu. Everyone was very satified with their meal and said they would definitely go back. I have gone back several times since and always... More

I'm not sure how this place stays in business. All I can say is, it was by far one of the worst meals we ever ate. I was afraid to eat my chicken, and my husband's meatloaf tasted like Alpo (very mushy and didn't taste like beef). I hate to be so negative, but we've had their catered Italian food... More

April E, Owner at Carmela' s Restaurant, responded to this review

I am sorry you had a bad experience at our restaurant. Usually if the server notices someone not eating their meal they either ask or send me over to find out why.I am upset that didn"t happen. That is the procedure that should have happened. I would like you to come back .. You never mentioned why you were afraid... More
