After hearing raves from people about dining here, we finally went. Tried to go a few times before this but they don't take reservations for couples or smaller parties (at least we were told that when we called the prior 1-2 years) and we were...More

The food and service are exceptional. Larger groups are able to make reservations. If not, chill out and enjoy the ambiance during your wait.

Great food, Great Service. Get reservations or on the priority wait list for smaller parties. Once you experience Carmello's, you'll see why so many other people find this restaurant in a shopping strip so appealing!

I have been a fan of Chef Larry from his early days at Luna's in Neenah WI. The food is delicious, seasoned to perfection and hands down our favorite way to start a date night. Good wine, great food and atmosphere.

Carmella's is a top quality restaurant the serves unique dishes. Most food has an Italian flavoring but there are things like their pinnini's that are more American but still very different from the norm. Love to stop there for lunch with my wife.

Being an Italian from NY, I am usually a little critical of Italian restaurants but I have to say Carmella's is the real deal. Authentic food cooked and served in rustic Italian fashion. Very impressive and well worth the trip. You will enjoy the experience.

Hi, Do you have anything that isn't Italian as garlic doesn't agree with me! I am going as a guest of someone else otherwise I would smell and smile as I walk by. No offense! I love Italian but it doesn't like me, belly issues!! Can you recommend anything that I could eat? Heavy sauces, garlic and a lot of spices are definitely a no no. Thanks so much for any assistance you can give me!!

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.
Do they have steaks on the menu?

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!
Do they have baked goods for takeout?
