Three of us went there as the choice of a birthday girl. The food is really great. That bread and olive oil thing is very good. One review called it a hidden gem. I don't think quite so hidden as it was packed on a weekday lunch. I found it to be very loud, bustling to the point of no... More

I've eaten at Carmella's several times so when I took my sister in law out for lunch when she was in town visiting I knew this was a great choice. They never disappoint. The lunch menu has several options from salads or sandwiches to pasta, something for everyone. Prices are very fair and the food quality is top-notch. Service was... More

I have enjoyed 3 dinners at Carmella's. The Italian food is delicious. The staff seemed a bit overwhelmed at a January dinner but continued to be pleasant even though the food took quite a while to be served. It is drafty and cold if one chooses a table by the door in the winter so sit closer to the back... More

However---we have, on three separate occasions had unfriendly, almost to the point of being rude, servers. The restaurant is lovely, warm and inviting, until you sit at your table. The management is... More

Seems like a good concept and drew a pretty good crowd for a Wednesday. The menu looked good; having a fair selection with detailed descriptions. The weakness was the staff. I sat at the bar (glass of wine) waiting for my business colleagues to arrive. The bartender and 2-3 waitstaff stood behind the bar complaining about everything from the management... More

First time amazing, second time poor at best. Why, order their signature mozzarella cheese pan fried appetizer and glass of wine and beer to start. Ten minutes go by no wine or beer, waited another 5 minutes and appetizer shows up from waitress lukewarm at best. Still no drinks. Mind you it is like 1:30pm on a Friday afternoon. Not... More

Absolutely the best ever. From the food to the staff. A wonderful experience! The best place for celebrating an event or just a nice dinner for two. You will not be disappointed.
