“Great food, too noisy when crowded”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Food and service is excellent but I always go off hours so I am able to hear my table mate without reading lips!

“New York Italian at Appleton Prices”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

It is always difficult to find true Italian Cuisine in smaller Midwest cities but not so in Appleton. Being from New York City I am always comparing meals to the Big Apple. Carmella's would hold its own against any top rated New York Italian restaurant. I love the Ariana followed closely by the Saltimboca. My wife is a big fan of the Gnocchi and Ravioli. I guarantee any visitor to Carmella's that they will be pleased with any entree and the desserts are to die for. The wine selection is top shelf and I love the Super Tuscan Red. Buon Appetite!

“Never a bad meal!”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

Everything at this restaurant is wonderful! Their choices of cheeses are great and the desserts are worth coming for by themselves. The tomato bisque, scallops, filet and desserts are some of the best things I have ever eaten. The only criticism I can come up with is that it is often a wait to get a table and dinner is sometimes too leisurely!

“Fun place!”
Reviewed January 4, 2014 via mobile

Had the daily special, a crab pasta that was superb. I ate at the bar and had much better service there than I expected based on other restaurants. The place was packed and anyone living in Appleton or visiting should check it out. The interior and food are both much nicer than the exterior strip mall would suggest.
