“Way overrated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Briefly, went for dinner with 4 others one evening. One of our group ordered a beer on tap only to be told it was out. He made another choice, bottle this time, only to be told it was out. Ok! Not real impressive start. 4 Italian entrees ordered, one was so undercooked it was beyond al dente. The others choked with so much garlic that it masked the flavors in the dish. Really quite awful. Service was indifferent, not good, not bad.Just Impersonal and indifferent. Didn't get the feeling that anyone cared if we liked our food or not.
Not impressed and won't be returning.

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

I've eaten at Carmella's now more than 10 times over 4-5 months. Very consistent, very good quality, very good service, almost always packed..! For sure, the best Italian in Appleton.

“OH EM GEE!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

This is one of my daughter and my favorite places to go....She loves the pork chop and I love the veal...We always make it a point to stop for Carmella's. They are definitely worth the money and the atmosphere is great! Hope they continue to succeed!

“Still #1”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

Carmella's never disappoints. Went for my wife's birthday and enjoyed everything. We were promptly seated and Mike had bread in front of immediately. Our order arrived in a timely fashion. We were even compted a cupcake for birthday. Appleton is lucky to have this great venue.
