Kortney, our server, was friendly, attentive and made our Carmela's experience satisfying.

Separately, while not a complaint, we wondered why the side salad lettuce was cut into large pieces.

We arrived 10 minutes before our scheduled time, and were promptly sat. Our server was excellent in terms of explaining items and selections on the menu. Her suggestions were as good as she described! It was a birthday celebration for my mother, and a complimentary cannoli was brought out for her.
I will be returning again for dinner, and look forward to trying items on the lunch menu.
Outstanding experience!

We always enjoy taking family and friends to Carmela's when we are in town. The service is always stellar and the food is delicious and reasonably priced. The noise level can be a bit loud on a busy football weekend, but that is understandable. We will return on our next visit to South Bend.

Seating arrangement perfect for these stressful covid times. We had own own little cubby table for 2 along the outer edge of the dining room. Easy to carry on conversation and feel isolated from other guests. Very good food, well- prepared and prompt.

All six of us had an outstanding meal. We had homemade pasta, fish, and chicken. Each dish was delicious and so was the dinner salad and fresh vegetables.
We also had four wonderful desserts.
We certainly will go back.
Our server Audriana was a family member and perfection!!
