I've eaten here countless times and have rarely been disappointed. Everything is just so darned good-bread with seasoned olive oil, freshly prepared entrees, great wine list and seasonal specials. The outdoor patio is a lovely place to dine in the summer. Attentive service too. Two thumbs up!

The restaurant is high-end, but not pretentious. Delicious food from salad through dessert! Worth the price to have a wonderful meal!

This restaurant is a family owned facility and it shows. The food is refined and delicious. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. We are fortunate to have such a restaurant in a city the size of Appleton. The only complaint, if you can call it one, is that is is difficult to get a table on weekend but that is... More

We had been to Carmella's a number of times with no incidents. The food was good, but nothing spectacular. The last time I was there I ordered pasta and underneath it was a small mount of long, black kinky hair attached to a pretty large amount of dusty debris. It looked like a dustpan got emptied on my plate. It... More

While this is not my favorite restaurant in the Fox Valley (see Apollon), you can generally count on good food, service, and atmosphere at Carmella's. I've been here for large work parties in their very nice separate room, date nights with the spouse, and work lunches with coworkers on their patio. The food does seem a bit pricey for some... More

Just love going here. Antipasto is awesome, along with the bread and wines. Entrees are always excellent, and staff is very friendly and keep coming back to table to check. This is a small place but food and atmosphere is top notch. I would definitely give it 5 stars.

After hearing friends rave about this place for years, I finally made it there for dinner with friends. The ravioli with pesto, english peas and parm was wonderful and the price was fair. I appreciated it wasn't a huge portion like other italian places do. Definitely quality over mass quantity. The menu was robust as well as the wine list... More
