we ate here passing through Craig and because it's # 1 on Tripadvisor. the food was good and the atmosphere was nice but it's all about the people. this is obviously a favorite with the locals because all the other patrons knew each other and were walking from table to table chatting. one gentleman stopped by our table just to...

We were only in Craig for one night and the Carelli restaurant was recommended by hotel staff. On street parking but we had no problem. It was around 5 pm so the restaurant had a few patrons but not busy and the ambiance was nice. Clean restaurant and where we got seated was roomy. Italian fare but we chose steak... More

I ordered the "small" pizza which could feed two easily. The ingredients were fresh and the sauce was tasty. My buddy got the prime rib special and he was pleased as well.

We had dinner at Carelli's Italian Restaurant and we were not impressed. My husband ordered the lasagna and didn't eat half of it. He said my lasagna was better and I am not Italian or a good cook. Our order did take quite a while even though the place wasn't very busy. The pizzas that we saw looked really good... More

First let me say we are from the east coast and it is hard to find good pizza anywhere else. So we are very critical of pizza. The crust was just OK and way too thick, There was not enough sauce and too much cheese. It also lacked olive oil and spices. Like I said after eating pizza in Boston... More

I have taken a large group to Carelli's every year for over a decade. Always a super friendly place with excellent thin crust pizzas. My favorite - Spicy Hawaiin

We visited late in the day. There were several tables open but needed to be cleared before we could be seated. Our wait person was polite and came to take our order relatively quickly but had to return a couple of times to have us repeat parts of our order. The salad dressings were served on the side in the... More

Excellent food and service. The restaurant was bombarded with diners because of the weekend influx of the 1,000 people participating in the Colorado State Swim Meet. The staff met the challenge of the huge crowds with efficiency and still-great food.

We stopped here because of the sterling reviews on TripAdvisor. We found the menu limited to pizza, subs, stromboli... Where's the chicken parmesan? It didn't matter, anyway. The kitchen closed as we walked in because it was too hot for the staff. Go figure. Our first impression was that it was pretty dirty and unappealing.
