This was our second visit to Carmella's and without any hesitation I would recommend this lovely Italian bistro to anyone wishing for a great meal and super friendly staff. On this trip we enjoyed the smaller fare broccoli and fettuccini alfredo (home made pasta) and the veal Parmesan. Both were excellent and we love the option for a lighter fare.... More

Met friends there after a few years away for the restaurant. Made reservations and were seated promptly. Rosie was our server and she was prompt and efficient ( with a smile) . Drinks were ordered and served as requested. There was no rushing us, and food came out as ordered. The veal parm was outstanding with plenty of meat as... More

Absolutely delicious Italian fare at a great price. The Wednesday evening special, dinner for 2 with a bottle of wine for $40, was delicious and a great value.

First off, the manager Dale was incredible! Not only did he greet us at the door but showed us to our table and always checked back with us to see if everything was satisfactory with our meal through out our whole time spent. The food was amazing! Love to find a hidden gem when you least expect it.

It was a great price! We ate on the bar side... The server was wonderful and attentive- the food was great! We will go... More

Dined here this evening with two friends. Barely seated and our friendly waitperson appeared saying she would give us few minutes to peruse the menu. I'm sure we have all experienced this same scenario, in which the waitperson returns to the table 4 times in 10 minutes to see if we have decided yet. We were the only occupied table... More

Authentic Italian food. Offers lighter fare for people with smaller appetites. Varied menu - delicious meals. Moderately priced. We also enjoyed great service. Loyalty program for frequent diners.
