Good food with decent atmosphere

Slowly becoming a more regular place for me, Carmellas offers a good variety of food. I normally sit at the bar, so I haven't any idea how the wait staff is.

Had Birthday Dinners there Sunday. We all had great meals and the service was very good. Friendly and very accommodating. I ordered the Sunday special Chicken Riggies and brought a ton home..Just the right amount of spicy. My husbands Broiled Haddock was perfectly done.

Have a meatball that smelled of ammonia, but the manager wouldn't do anything about it, so we left. It was clearly filled with bacteria.

I am amazed that this place is always busy with a full parking lot and wait to get a table. I opted to sit at the bar last weekend and ordered an entree that came with a salad drenched in dressing and hot bread. The service was efficient but not overly friendly. The bartenders did not seem to connect with... More

Greeted by the friendly and efficient Kim who checked in with us throughout the evening we were pleasantly surprised. We needed a dinner place near Hamilton College and we ordered pizza which was thin and crispy as an appetizer (the way we like it)and tried the home made pastas. My son had steak and pasta and said everthing was cooked... More

We went to Carmella's to celebrate a special birthday with extended family. Although Italian is the focus, only two of nine of us got Italian. There was enough variety that everyone could get what they wanted. Portions were generous, service was attentive, and the food very good. The decor is very nice and a good time was had by all.

Good place for a burger or sandwich for lunch or dinner. Nothing special about the menu. The italian choices have a bland tomato sauce.

Carmella's is great for happy hours and dinner! They have great chicken riggies and my personal favorite is the Cincinnati style spaghetti! I would definitely recommend their pasta dishes over their american fare and sandwiches. The cannoli are always fresh too, with a crispy wafer, not soggy!

I had dinner with friends I hadn't seen in awhile. We started at the bar for drinks. It is a great atmoshere. Happy hour drinks are 2 for 1. I paid for the first drink for myself and my friend. I had a glass of house wine and she had a mixed drink. I was a little shocked that those... More
