“Hit the spot!”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

I had the ham,egg, and cheese on kaiser. I should have asked to have my kaiser toasted because if not it's served on a soft, cold roll. My guy had the eggs, bacon, and homefries. Bacon was delish!

“Small, but friendly.”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

The "bunch" ate lunch here today and was pleasantly surprised that everyone was so friendly, and the food so good for a place so small. Salad bar looked clean and fresh. I ordered the "Special" today Meatloaf with gravy and mashed potatoes. Very tasty! One of the guys ordered the spegethi with meatballs - which he said was very good too. Lastly, one had the Philly Steak sandwich, also very good.

“Finally found a good Italian restaurant!”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

My husband and I went here on our last night in Dunnellon and I was so happy we did! Great food with really big portions, more than I could eat! I had eggplant and I love love love it when it's done right....well I fell in love!
The service was fantastic with very friendly people waiting on us.
Most people coming in to eat seemed to know everyone else which just says to me that the food is good and they have a very good come back business and yes we'll be back when we're in the area again.

“Nice little restaurant”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

We enjoy Carmella's. They have a nice little salad bar. The prices are reasonable and you get a lot for your money. The servers are friendly and accommodating. The owner is nice. We have been there for meetings and as a couple and with a small group. We are pleasantly pleased.
