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

I've eaten at Carmella's five or six times over the past few years. I enjoyed the white pizza, french onion soup, spinach salad and the cheese burger. The portions are huge and the service is great. I believe they were established 35 years ago and it is locally owned.

OK, sometimes you just trip over something really good without realizing it is there and this is one of those times. Carmella’s is one of those places where I really wished I lived next door instead of hundreds of miles ways. It specializes in Italian food that is made fresh daily and sometimes more often then that! I had a... More
