Diner Reviews
  • "This was our first time at Carmella's and we will definitely return. Food and service were excellent, and dessert from the adjacent bakery was outstanding!"

  • "Great food as always, but they crammed way too many people into the restaurant. It was Valentine's Day and it felt like we were having dinner with 3 other couples. It made for a very awkward experience for all. Waitress was excellent and handled the cramped situation very well. Will not be back for a romantic dinner :("

  • "My boyfriend and I used to love eating at Carmela's—the service was friendly, quick, and the food is delicious. It had been a while since we last ate there, and we were really disappointed in our Valentine's evening with them. After being seated and talking a bit, we noticed that we had been sitting for 30 minutes without so much as a drink order. We waited well over an hour before we finally gave up and left (after asking three times for a server and having one negative interaction with a curt man who to came to our table and hollered, "what do you want!?!"). Other couples were being served all around us, leaving us to wonder what we were doing wrong. We were quite disappointed with the way Carmela's handled the holiday crowd."

  • "The food was great, and so was the service, but the overall experience was a little awkward because at 6:30 on a Friday night, we were one of three tables of people.... Very surprised to see how empty the place was.... Felt like our conversation was for the whole room to hear."

  • "Carmella's has been a longtime favorite of mine. It's beautiful setting and great food make it a wonderful place for a special occasion or a romantic evening with that special person. The food is terrific and the staff is always kind, welcoming, and helpful. If you're tired of the "same old, same old" and/or want to get away from the chaos of Grape Road, Carmella's is the place to go!!"

  • "Carmela's has a phenomenal atmosphere as it is decorated to resemble an outdoor Italian cafe. The starter salads and bread were both good, the entrees were very good (we had the chicken parmigiana and ravioli), and the dessert was excellent. Our waitress was pleasant and stopped by our table a reasonable amount of times throughout the meal. Definitely a place we will visit again in the near future."

  • "We went here for dinner for my husband's birthday while we were visiting South Bend for the first time. We had a great experience here. The bruschette alla Calabrese appetizer was fresh and yummy. My husband had a spinach salad, which he enjoyed. I had a dinner salad with the white balsamic vinaigrette, which I loved. I'm going to experiment and try to re-create that dressing! Hubby had the veal marsala and I had a gnocchi dish with a creamy pesto sauce. We enjoyed it all. The wait staff were all friendly and attentive. It was a busy place, obviously popular, and they seemed to handle the crowd well. We made the reservations well ahead of time, and I do recommend reservations, especially for larger groups."

  • "Arrived and promptly seated despite being 20 minutes early. Staff very pleasant. Limited but nice entree selections. All in party enjoyed their entrees , portion sizes were perfect. No room for dessert. Priced a little on high side but worth it. Will visit again next time we are in town."

  • "We entertained an old friend Saturday night who is leaving the area. Carmela's was the perfect setting. It's a beautiful and romantic feast of Italy for the eyes even before the first shred of fresh parmesan hit the plate. Our server, Heidi, was friendly and attentive to our every need. My friend and I each had the Cioppini which was an scrumptious menage of shrimp and scallops and mussels over a bed of linguini with marinara. There was a nice little spicy kick but not too hot, just right! We had a terrific time and loved our meals... twice (there was much left over)."
