Carmella's is a locally owned version of many chain type restaurants like Applebee's or TGIF's. The food is pretty good but not terribly plentiful for the price we paid. Our bill for 3 came to over $75 with the tip and our food was chicken riggies (decent sized plate), haddock marinara ( very small portion - son left hungry) and... More

Been going here for years since a teenager on dates, as a young adult with friends, and in recent years with the wife and kids. Spacious varied seating inside perfect from 2 to 8 at tables and they also have a private room for a group of maybe 12-20. The food never disappoints and the signature best dish is the... More

The atmosphere of Carmella's is casual and comfortable. The food is very good and I especially recommend the Italian Wedding Soup. It's my personal favorite and can be purchased by the quart from the ready-to-go fridge, along with several other delicious items. They will also fetch some hot soup, for those days when you're too tired or sick to do... More

Old tired dusty atmosphere. Food is ok but didn't come the way we ordered things. So so service. Overall not even mediocre. Would not go again.

I have lived the areas for over ten years, but never went to Carmella's. A friend of mine suggests it and we met there for drinks and dinner. It is busy during happy hour with good decor for hanging with friends or a casual family meal. The pasta and sauce is made in premises. I had a pizza and I... More

I come here every time I come up to New York. First place I go! They are very clean and well staffed. They have both Italian food and American food.

I met friends for dinner about 5:30 pm. We were seated promptly and our waitress quickly took drink orders. We were busy catching up so it took us awhile to place our food order. Our waitress was understanding, we never felt rushed. We ordered the Tuscan Platter, Crunchy Chicken Salad and Buffalo Chicken Salad. The food arrived in a decent... More
