This intimate cafe and bar is a great place to go when you want good food, friendly service and a pleasant atmosphere. From the bread with dipping oil to dessert and everything in between, the chefs here do a great job. Leave the hassle of the Rt. 224 corridor in Boardman, Ohio and head for the next exit south on...

This is a local Italian Restaurant which has a very good selection of entrees along with their own wine choices! Not a large place, but very nicely decorated. Also, the service is very good, and the chef can and will tweak any entre if you ask to make it to your liking!!! Great location at I680 & Western Reserve Road... More

Service is friendly but slow. I do not care for their tomato sauce or fish which should be what a Italian restaurant is known for. Fries are frozen - fresh cut would take it up a notch. Would recommend for lunch - greens and portobello mushroom sandwich.

The lunch menu has just the right amount of variety to satisfy anyone. Our server was Kristen and she was extremely helpful as well. My wife had a chicken wrap that she really enjoyed and I went for the fried bologna, cheese and egg sandwich (it was excellent). I have been here before for dinner and was quite pleased as... More

We (two couples) had lunch at Carmellas Italian Eatery. The food is absolutely wonderful and plentiful. Don't miss the eggplant parm with roasted red pepper sandwich. Also, the Mediterranean Salad is outstanding. You do wait awhile for the meal, but that's a good thing because it is not "pre-made."

This is a very pleasant restaurant to visit. We have had lunch there twice recently and found the food to be consistently enjoyable. We intend to try them for dinner in the near future. The service is great. We had sandwiches and soup on our visits. The soup was a traditional wedding soup and very good with plenty of greens.... More

Family owned and operated. This restaurant is the best kept secret in town. The seating is minimal so reservations is suggested. Everything on the menu are family recipes, passes down from one generation to the next. I highly recommend the homemade spaghetti and chicken parmigiana. All of the bread and meats they serve are purchased locally.

Our friend has lived abroad, traveled every continent, and is vegetarian! Carmella's hit it out of the park when we had dinner ! She was so very impressed! Being a vegetarian, their menu gave her so many choices! And the "Kagoots" was the winner! We ordered it for an appetizer; she was so impressed she ordered it for dinner, as... More

I first visited Carmellas with a group of ladies. It was so good, I went back for dinner with my husband. Great Italian food and probably an overlooked gem because of the location. It's in a small strip plaza that might make you think this diner type food or sub par but everything I've ever had there was great!
