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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

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.

Responded on January 18, 2021

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.
