Carmela's is in my town and I drive by it twice a day as I head to and from work. I attended a business luncheon there but for some reason never considered it a place to dine... too close to home perhaps. Recently, after a busy day for both me and my husband we (he, really as HE does 99%... More

small restaurant, gets very busy quick, so eat early if you don't want to wait. Excellent food and service. It does get loud in restaurant.

This visit was seriously a 180º turn around from the first time. I was expecting and looking forward to great food and great service. We got neither. We got very slow service and our server kept making excuses that she had a large party and was flat out busy. Drink order took a while, drinks took awhile, and the dinner... More

Carmela's is a favorite of my family. We meet there at least once a month and are never disappointed. The meals are always delicious and great prices. We typically dine at the bar because of the great bartenders. Peggy and Jillian on the floor are also great. The only complaint I have is that it takes a long time to... More

Nice place, great decor, good food and great service. Went on a Friday night busy but got seated fairly quick. Food was served quick and was absolutely delicious.

The food was excellent. From the salad to the bread, Chicken Parmesan, Eggplant Parmesan, Meatballs as well as Chicken, Broccoli and Ziti. The service was excellent. The two waitresses couldn't have been nicer. They also let us take home the extra food which was great as many places don't let you do this.

Family ordered food delivery for a funeral service. Needless to say the food was outstanding. People who say it's not real Italian food sound like that they have never had real Italian food. I currently live in Italy and have been there for the last 5 years and I can tell you that the food is comparable to the food... More

Owned by Mama Mia's and we love both restaurants. We always go on Thursdays for Prime Rib night! Service is excellent and even though the parking lot looks full there is a valet.

Very extensive menu plus lots of great daily specials. Aim is to please all finicky palates and they do. Portions tend to be huge but there are several that are "lighter fare" which is just a half size portion of some of their most popular dishes.
