Carmelina's North End
Wonderful Mother's Day Treat!We had a large group for Mother's Day dinner and it could not have been more perfect! The food is delicious, the atmosphere is fun and casual and the waitstaff could not have been nicer or more accommodating to the youngest to the oldest at the table. It was so nice to have some of the best food we have ever had in the North End at very reasonable prices as well. We will absolutely be back--it is a real "neighborhood gem" (and there's a lot in the neighborhood)!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA Very Pleasant Night OutMy husband and I went to Carmelina's to celebrate our 3rd wedding anniversary. We had seen the restuarant featured on Phantom Gourmet and wanted to try it. We were happy to arrive and find a table waiting for us, seeing that we had made a reservation via Open Table. Our waiter was polite, helpful and attentive. It was an early dinner, 5:30, and it was still nice to not be rushed, given that the North End is always busy. I did find it odd that they did not acknowledge it was our anniversary, given that I had put it in our reservation notes. But it really was a very nice pleasant dinner, and the food lived up to its reputation. The Sunday Macaroni is excellent, you will definitely have leftovers!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMa real neighborhood GEMMy wife and I have been to many restaurants in the North End. It's one of our favorite places to spend a day. We have never had a bad meal in the neighborhood. Carmelina's might just be our favorite of them all.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMService and ambiance wereService and ambiance were excellent.

We made Reservations through OpenTable. This maybe wasn't so necessary, but provided us with the piece of mind while going about our day. The service was incredible, and the food was delicious! We will absolutely come back!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrated our 27th weddingWe celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary at Carmelina's - Our dining experience was fantastic - food and service is top notch! I love sitting at the counter over looking the chef's while they prepare the food. Nice to chat with them about their cooking methods. Staff in general is very attentive and professional.
This is definitely my "go to" boston restaurant.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was my second time at Carmelina'It was my second time at Carmelina's and I already can't wait to go back again! We had a group of 8 and all of our appetizers, meals, and drinks were amazing! I highly recommend to anyone looking for a top of the line meal in the North End.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMCarmelinas was fantasticI was disappointed when Damien decided to close Damiano, as it was one of my fav. North End spots, but Carmelinas was top notch. We started with the mussels and calamari, and the broth for the mussels was perfect, although I think the portion could have been larger. The calamari was cooked well, and had a nice light batter. For my entree, I had the pistachio chilean sea bass, which was phenomenally cooked. The potatoes and spinach that accompanied it were also prepared really well. My boyfriend had the Sunday pasta (which he has had many times before) and loved it. Our friends loved their gnocchi and crazy alfredo. Only downside is that they only serve beer and wine, no liquor. However, the wine menu is very impressive.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, very nice andGreat food, very nice and reasonably priced wine list. Will definitely be back.2/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
