This is one of those places where you will be pleasantly surprised. The outside of the place can be a bit deceiving, but the service and food make up for that. The restaurant is a little small but cozy. We had the fettuccine, half Carnivore...More

My wife and I visited Cambridge and thoroughly enjoyed the day. We had lunch at Carmela's and were impressed with the staff and the food. Will definitely visit again and let friends and family know.
