Been to Carmela's many times for past 16 years and always excellent food, service. We recommend all of the pasta dishes and the steaks. On holidays there are always great specials such as lamb.

Lasagna is out of this world. Got pizza today and was very tasty. Wish it was a little more crispy but we enjoyed it. Was moderately priced. Staff is very polite

We've been to Carmellas often for their excellent pasta and sausage dishes which are terrific and very modestly priced considering I always take enough home for another meal. This year we tried their pizza for the first time. Wonderful!! Two sizes with a large selection of toppings including anchovies-yes! The one special includes a choice of six toppings and we found the pizza outstanding.

My husband and I have dined at Carmela's occasionally since we moved to Dunnellon in 2005 and never had any issues until the last two times we went. A group of us (8-16) dine out every Tuesday and we like to go local. Last month at Carmela's 12 of us were seated at a long table and had a great time. Food was great but our server had quite an attitude. We chalked it up to a bad day. This month reservations were made for 14. When we arrived we found two tables, one for 8 and the other for 6 set up in a tee shape but separated so that 3 of us had our backs to our friends! When I asked this same server if there was any way we could combine the tables he became surly, disrespectful, and arrogant when he said no. I asked another server and again was told NO in a very unpleasant way. The reason we get together every Tuesday is to talk to one another, not sit separately! The excuse of a fire hazard didn't wash bc there were several existing issues. We will not be returning to Carmela's as a group after being treated with such lack of professionalism and courtesy.

We visited here on a Sat early evening for the first time and were surprised to find such a gem. Food was excellent and service was very good. Salad dressings are home made, desserts too but we were too full to try any, and even the broccoli was a surprise--best ever! Very good value. We will be back. Wished we had found this sooner during our month stay in Dunnellon.
