Carmella's is our go-to place for a nice Italian dinner. The risotto is the best! There isn't anything on the menu that isn't good. Be prepared to wait, it is always busy but worth the few minutes you may need to wait.

This is a difficult review to write because previous to this visit, our meals here would have rated a 5. Our most recent visit was probably a 3. So, I'll average it out. Make no mistake, Carmella's is special, but the preparation of the food...More

I have been to Carmella's several times, and I have always had a great meal. The prices are higher than some restaurants in the area, but well worth it. I love to eat outside when I visit. In addition to great entrees, the desserts are...More

You can see their menu online... search for Carmella's Bistro Appleton... They have a fillet mignon and a pork chop.... numerous chicken dishes... and some seafood options... all "Italian" style. EXCELLENT FOOD!
