Great for happy hour or dinner!

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!

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

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

The food was excellent! I ordered the haddock marinara and cheesecake for dessert. My husband ordered the Charbroiled Alpine chicken and cappuccino pie. Both were delicious! Our only complaint would be that the waitress was not super friendly. We will definitely be back!

the alfredo is great with their homemade pasta, but their greens are nowhere near Café DelBuono or other restaurants nearby. Greens are dry and blah. Their French Fries are pre cooked and overly seasoned/salty. Their Margherita pizza has too much sauce on it and its quite salty also.

We just had a pre-Boilermaker pasta dinner at Carmella's on Seneca Turnpike! On a very busy weekend we were seated promptly and the service was very good. We had the runner's special which includes a free pasta dinner, salad, and fresh hot bread. You might expect with 15,000 runners in town that the food or service would be mediocre but... More

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
