Highly recommend! Food was delicious and the service could not have been better! Adriana was our server and she was exceptional! Lobster ravioli was the best 😊
Good food warm and friendly atmosphere A nice place to dine
Great food and service. Will definitely return. Great atmosphere. Pleasant. Thank you!
Everything was very good. The only real complaint was our 3 top table was kinda small.
Excellent go-to for even casual dining. A reliable place for good food & good service. We love it there
Overall great experience, restaurant is great for a nice date spot
Excellent service and very nice atmosphere. The food was very good although my mushroom ravioli needed a little more flavor.
Great night out with our son! Food was amazing and service just as good!
We made a reservation for 10 and the table was ready, the service was great, the value was great, the food was great, the evening was great. Carmella’s is now our restrauant of choice in South Bend.
Everything was perfect except the noise level is a little high for good conversation.
Service was slow, food was great.
So nice and food was good.
Food and service wonderful. They need to update plumbing and clean restrooms
We had a great table. The food and service were awesome!
Special yet casual dining experience. Food fresh and delicious. Service professional, friendly and efficient ♥️We will return!
Food was good as always. Was a bit noisy, likely due to the large number of college students. Service was extremely slow at first. Took 10+ minutes to take our drink order, but then got better.
Very nice restaurant. Felt great for a special occasion and food was excellent and came out fast as well. Very impressed.
Fagioli soup, house salad, chicken picatta, and a chocolate cannoli- 5/5 would order again. Delish.
Excellent...all around! As usual. Always a fine dining experience. Wonderful service.
Beautiful restaurant, food was wonderful and our server was great
Valentine dinner. Excellent service and food.
Our waitress was very attentive and helpful.
We came here with a group of moms and our sons. The staff was friendly and the food was incredibly tasty. A good variety of pastas and carne dishes on the menu. My chicken saltimbocca was very flavorful and fresh. Overall we had a good time and on the next day we were all talking about how much we enjoyed the food.
Our visit was amazing overall. The atmosphere was exceptional and the food was even better. One of the best dining experiences we have had in the past few years.
The only area where Improvements could be made is in evening out the attention from the server. For example, our drinks were topped off 2-3 times before we received our food even though our glasses were still 3/4 full. Once we received our food and were drinking more, we received no refills. We did finally get more to drink after our plates were empty.
Amazing food, from appetizers to drinks to the main course. So good!
We decided last minute to take a drive a couple hours away to enjoy a dinner out, and we were extremely pleased with our decision. The food was phenomenal, the ambiance charming & welcoming and our server, Aaron, was very attentive, knowledgeable & friendly. We are so glad we made the trip, and will definitely come back!
Our server AnneMarie was fabulous
The food was great. What stands out the most was the amazing service. Our waitress was excellent. Made for a wonderful anniversary dinner
Carmela's is a delight! Best Italian dining in the area. Best lasagne I've ever had! The atmosphere is elegant old world with arches, pergolas and sky painted ceiling. Service is very good. We are going again soon!
Great traditional Italian meal
Great veal parmigiana and chicken piccata
Reasonable price and good wine selections
Staf very pleasant
Our second visit and just and good as the first, looking forward to the next visit. Food is great and service is as well.
Hands down the best Italian food I have ever eaten. From appetizers to entrees and then desert. It was amazing.
Carmela’s is our go to for great food and wonderful ambiance.
We’ve dined here twice now. Food is great. Nice wine list (Quilt Cab is my fav!), great selection for food options. Servers seem inexperienced but are nice and you can tell they are trying considering the new covid crap rules. Food comes out quick and has wonderful flavor! Very easy to book through OpenTable!
Pretty good and nice a quite place. Great place for a date. But it’s pricey tho.
A south bend favorite! We live in Cincinnati! We will be back
Appetizers were delicious (motzerella sticks and rice balls). Entrees were good portion size but veal parm was a little tough and osso bucco didn't have any vegetables and had too much gnocchi that was mushy.
Thanks so much for your review! The OssoBucco is served on a bed of Gnocchi as described on our menu. In the future, we are happy to add on a side of our vegetable of the day instead! All of our entrees are made fresh to order, so we can certainly make that change. Gnocchi is a potato pasta which is also made in house and is similar to a soft dough dumpling. We appreciate your feedback as it will help us improve! We hope to see you back soon.
Great traditional Italian food and good service.
It is always our favorite place.
