Carmella's Plates and Pints

Love it here !! Our favorite place to go. Carmella treats everyone like family.
First time there on Mother's Day 2021. Generally not a fan of the special limited menus offered on holidays and Carmella's reminded me why. No appetizers or desserts other a brownie were available.
Most of the dishes were fine—but my bean pole daughter who is a light eater was taken aback by how small her $35 scallop entree was. 4 Scallops with about 1 cup of a pasta mix in the center of the plate looked like an appetizer for one. She came home and made a second dinner—something I don't recall her doing for years.
I was pleased with my Moroccan inspired Lamb shank which was a generous portion. The Waygu meatloat and seafood risotto were are also well received. Restaurant was reasonably food allergy friendly and I liked the extensive on-tap selection.
Chocolate croissants were served as the bread and while quite tasty they were not a match for rest of the menu. One had the feeling that these were leftover from brunch.
The noise level was acceptable–not great, but you could carry a conversation. We liked the ambiance and the service was fine.
We plan to revisit and sample the regular menu before making a final determination of Carmella's.
Went for a Mother’s Day dinner and was highly disappointed in price and food.
Just a wonderful experience. The food was amazing. Atmosphere was perfect. Service was top of line. Management/Owners were wonderful. All around great time. Would highly recommend.
Disappointing cheese plate, especially for $18, the main entrees were delicious but cold. Server was wonderful, great drinks! Would try again eventually.
Great drink selection, and the food was unique. It was a great change from our local haunts.
Food wasn't great for any of us (3 people). Even unsweetened iced tea was stale.
Absolutely loved the food and atmosphere! I’d recommend their brunch to anyone anytime.
Wonderful! Good food, great service, and good price point.
We love this restaurant!
Great food and drinks. Killer service! Great space!
Ambiance is so warm and cozy. Menu choices outstanding and food excellent. Gourmet flare and everything homemade.
Wait staff all very friendly and accommodating.
Can't wait to go back. Soooooo good.
Absolutely fantastic! I will definitely be going back to Carmella's.
Service was spotty at best. We had to continually ask our server for items. Food was very disappointing.Cheeseburger was like a hockey puck and an order of fries consisted of 4 frys. Choice of alcohol is awesome. This is a drinking establishment. Eat somewhere else.
Everything was great ,from appetizer to dinner to dessert.
The beer menu was phenomenal. Drinks were great too.
Great service !!! The server was amazing !!! She made the experience great !
food was amazing; had soft shell crab which was so fresh and delicious; drinks and service was amazing; so happy to be out again in a great restaurant with my wife and friends!!!
The food was delicious!!! Drinks were incredible! We did a friends birthday and got the Waugu burger and scallops, everything was amazing!!! Top it off with the skillet cookie❤️❤️❤️
Easter bunch. Food was is incredible. Server was nice and helpful. atmosphere is was comfortable and cool.
We dined during reduced capacity Covid restrictions, but. The food was very good, the service was prompt and friendly, the precautions taken were obvious and very reassuring.
There are several week-night specials that make this a significant value. Also, the whiskey list was enormous and loaded with gems.
Absolutely delicious! Have been multiple times and every single time the food is on point as well as the drinks.
We enjoyed this restaurant. We had a high top table and a curtain between us and the next table. The service was great, the drinks were incredible! We would definitely go back!
This is an unexpected gem. The food was delicious and sophisticated, and the drinks were creative and tasty. We ate outside on East Carson St. which I would not do again given how crowded and loud the sidewalk is at that time. We will definitely be back.
Great cocktails and food. Enjoyable on a weekend afternoon.
Always the best, have been going here for years and their brunch is to die for and have an amazing dinner menu as well.
Carmella is a great place to go. The food is great and the atmosphere is very inviting. Go see Carmela you will not regret it.
Had the Crab Benedict for brunch and they were delicious. The side of potato’s fell short. They were cold and didn’t have much taste. The Manmosas were a hit with the entire crew and the waiter was great. Good experience overall.
A hidden gem in Pittsburgh. My first time dining here and I had a lovely evening. I cannot rave enough. Great food. COVID safe. A great atmosphere.
While the server was pretty good he did forget some drinks. The food came out very fast
I ordered the chicken sandwich and it was absolutely delicious. Cocktails were outstanding. I would definitely recommend.
We had a great experience. Great food and excellent service.
Enjoyed our breakfast, but won’t be craving it or raving about it. Potatoes came out cool, not heated enough and toast was burnt to a crisp. Bananas foster had great flavor but the waffle was very small like the size of an eggo waffle. Spicy fried chicken sandwich had good flavor and was a big Chicken piece
Glad i found this establishment. The greeter wasn't particularly accomodating (at all) when we asked if we could sit someplace other than right next to the door on a very cold night. Otherwise, food was delish and quaint, cool atmosphere.
Everything was absolutely amazing! The fettuccine was insane and the lobster risotto was so delicious. Will definitely be back!
We showed up at our reserved time, got sat promptly, got waters, and then never had any other staff come to our table. Waited 15 minutes, made a reservation at another restaurant, got up and left. As we were leaving the hostess stoped us and knew right away what happened. She apologized. End of story. Place seemed nice. Can’t comment on the food as we never ordered. Service....0 Stars. Haha. Oh well. We didn’t let it ruin our night.
Wonderful atmosphere, food and drinks all combined for a wonderful evening.
One of my favorite places to eat in Pittsburgh, great food and an awesome staff!
We were here for Valentine's day, couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more! The staff were all very friendly and the food was amazing. If you're debating on coming here, just do it!
Great service! Probably the best espresso martini I’ve had.
My boyfriend and I regularly go to Carmellas as it always such an enjoyable experience! You feel so comfortable and the drinks and food are absolutely amazing. Our favorite place to go!
