This was my first time here and guarantee i will be coming back again. The service was good and the food amazing. I had the duck breast. Both that and the side of vegetables and gnocchi that accompanied it were absolutely delicious. I can’t wait to go back and try brunch.
Brunch - breakfast food was a bit bland. Food was not hot when it was brought out. Coffee was great! (French press) They seemed extremely busy and were working very hard. (They seemed short staffed and were very upbeat in spite of the situation.) Our waitress was GREAT!
Service - A+…. Food … C
Maybe the regular menu is better??
Very good meal with brand new server who struggled with a few items but was nice. Great appetizers and entrees very good.
AMAZING SERVICE AMAZING FOOD
We especially liked Carmella! She is a gem. We had one suggestion about our dinners and she really appreciated our input.
We were traveling thru and found this little gem in downtown Pittsburgh. Service and food were first class.
Everything was delightful. From the server to the food it was top notch. The red snapper was a fantastic plate and I can't wait to go back.
Great food, great service great ambiance. Would highly recommend.
Brunch at Carmella’s is always amazing. Great service and food!!
Our food was delicious. We had great service and loved the environment. We will definitely be coming back
Nice bar, great food and drinks, one of my favorite South Side restaurants.
Unexpectedly delicious asparagus salad and olive appetizer. The bison burger is amazing. The pasta appetizer was the beth thing my husband has ever ate. Love that you can make a reservation. That makes dining out so much easier.
Everyone was friendly and accommodating
Everything was delicious!!! Great way to celebrate my son’s graduation. Thank you!!!
Really enjoyed our dinner. Had the red snapper and it was very good. Only criticism was portions were on the small size especially the appetizers. We wanted to share and the portions were just too small-was more of tasting than sharing.
Always love visiting Carmella’s!! Wonderful brunch and amazing service for our birthday celebrations!!
Sat outside on a beautiful evening and had some good cocktails and food. Considering our server had only been there a few days he did a great job!
Food and services were great!
We enjoyed a wonderful anniversary dinner at Carmella's as our first night out since the beginning of COVID. They did a great job making sure everyone was safe and provided a cute outdoor area for us to eat at comfortably while enjoying the bustle of the south side. Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious, especially our dessert and drinks: Cast-Iron Skillet cookie and Irish coffee :)
Bison burgers and lobster risotto are great. Lemonade too sweet, octopus too salty.
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.
We loved Carmella's. Highly recommend the lamb shank and lobster risotto. Our server was great and we were impressed with the adherence to COVID precautions. This was our first trip to a nice, upscale restaurant in more than a year. We were both very impressed.
Food wasn't great for any of us (3 people). Even unsweetened iced tea was stale.
Wonderful place to go and eat! Food is always consistent and delicious. Highly recommend.
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❤️❤️❤️
