There are 3 Italian restaurants within spitting distance of each other (Bucca di Beppo, Olive Garden and Carmella's). Carmella's food is the best of the three by far. It is near impossible to get into this place on the weekends unless you have a group big enough to get a reservation, or you call in advance to get on the wait list, or you go early. I love this place because few restaurants have such an incredible beer selection. I have been accused of being a beer snob. Usually, selection is hard at most restaurants because they go with the over-marketed beers. In this case, there are so many fantastic beers on their list that I have a similar problem deciding. The food is really what drives people to fill this place up. They have a wide range of pastas and panini entrees. I love all of their paninis. They serve them with a salad comprised of high quality ingredients, but I usually upgrade to their roast beet with herbed goat cheese salad. Other popular dishes are their eqqplant parmigiana, gnocchi, and any of their fish entrees. They are also known for their cupcakes and gelato. Did I mention they have a solid wine selection? I am not a wine drinker, but several family members are and they always find something exceptional on the menu. My only complaint is that they do have some noise level issues since it is in a strip mall with exposed metal rafters/ceiling.
