“Friday Night Family Dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

We have been gathering as a family for many years at Carmella's for Friday dinner. Our three boys have very different taste's and their menu allows each of them to order their favorite dinner.
The service is fast...the wait staff is friendly and the food is good. The Lobster Bisque is available only on Friday night and is my favorite! This is a family tradition which we intend to continue for many years.

“Horrible Service!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

My husband and I took my mom out for her birthday about 2 years ago. It was AWFUL! The waitress was more concerned with her friends at another table and the food took an hour to get to our table (it was 3 in the afternoon and they were dead) It was cold and disgusting. When I asked to speak to a manager all he would do was apologize and say it woldnt happen again. He wouldnt even take anything off of our bill. It was terrible and I havent been back sincw.

“Not just for the evening crowd.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

Carmella's Cafe had a varied menu, friendly wait staff and pleasant surroundings. Their lunches are varied, with a good selection of soups, sandwiches and salads. The same holds true for dinner items. The presentation is fine and the prices are reasonable.

“Carmella's is a must stop when shopping in Utica”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2012

. You are always met with a warm greeting at Carmellas. Our waitress was prompt and courteous. My wife and I both ordered the Haddock Florentine. Broiled Haddock topped with mozzarella cheese and marinara sauce over Utica greens. Utica greens are cooked greens with bread crumbs and hot peppers. This is something unique of Utica. I always find Carmellas a great value for the money spent. It's a nice place to have a casual sit down meal with family and friends. The restaurant is decorated with allot of antique type decorations. It has a lot of plants and you just feel at home there. It’s a great place to have a long lunch or dinner. Don’t miss out on a nice Italian meal at Carmellas.
