Carmela’s continues to be the premier eateries in the Fox Valley. Despite its inauspicious location, the food is outstanding. My wife always orders the chicken parm and is never disappointed. I like to experiment with one of the daily specials and am extremely satisfied. True, the prices are a little higher than some other restaurants in the Valley, but so is the quality of the food. The place does fill up quickly, s plan ahead. It is worth the wait.

We went to Carmeiia's for lunch and had such a wonderful meal we went back for dinner the same day. It was the best meal I have ever eaten. The service is top notch and everyone so friendly and helpful with picking out a superb meal. This place will always be a stop I make. When I'm in Appleton.

Well rounded menu. Food is really high quality. The service is really friendly too. I love their arugula salad. I tried their panini, a little on the greasy side

Don't mind the outside appearance of this Bistro or its chain store neighbors. This is a locally owned and very well-run restaurant. Indeed, the fact that dining in Appleton is fairly grim definitely elevates one's perception of food quality and atmosphere at Carmella's. However, this little gem holds a well-deserved designation as Appleton's darling.

Pasta is cooked perfectly al dente. Cream sauces are easy to foil; Carmella's have dynamic flavors and are well balanced between lightness and cream. Fresh, high quality ingredients are the basis of all dishes - this is the key. Plan to wait for a table.

We've eaten at Carmella's twice and have not been disappointed. The food is excellent, the wine selection is excellent and we've had great service both times. This has become our "must-visit" restaurant when in Appleton.
