Carmella's is a great restaurant. It is traditional Italian food, can be very heavy. My favorites are the fusilli with chicken instead of shrimp and the house made ricotta raviolo with pesto.

Closest to real Italian meal that we can get without going to Florence. I had the creamy fettuccine and it’s so rich and creamy. The atmosphere is a bit echo filled so it’s not always easy to have a conversation with friend though. There’s often...More

I love this restaurant! I come here once or twice a year and always look forward to it. The atmosphere is great. The past few times though it's taken quite a long time to get our food which is disappointing.

I have had the veal Marsala numerous times before and ordered it again as I really love it. This time I was sorely disappointed as there was very little meat served with the potatoes and mushrooms. Not their usual portion by any means.

Don't get me wrong Carmellas is very good. Its just little things that irritate me. They come by 15 times for water, once for a drink. Its nice, good food. Just needs better service to get to a 5.

I’ve had a lot of recommendations to eat here but never got the opportunity until now. It is a very nice high quality restaurant with menu options that range in price so there will be affordable options for everyone. I liked the variety in the...More

I've only been there twice, but the menu is pretty big and staff seems great and I'm sure they would take care of you.

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!
