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!
Food and service was outstanding! Will definitely go back!!
Fantastic food served in a very unique venue. We will be back here often!
We were very pleased with our overall experience at Carmella’s from start to finish. We have already recommended it to friends.
I always enjoy Carmella's. The food and drinks are great and I always have excellent service!
Food was delicious, waiter was friendly and attentive, quick service. Only complaint was noise. Hard to hear across the table. So good though!
Hightop near bar, very attentive servers, and delicious food!
I love Carmella's. I'd be there once a week if I lived closer. The food, atmosphere and cocktails are top notch everytime I eat there.
Carmella's is one of our favorite restaurants! It is reliable and consistent in service and food, which makes it an easy choice for date night/special occasions! I love the atmosphere and how they have adapted to COVID-19 regulations.
Great service, great food, great selection of alcohol, great ambience. Couldn't ask for a better night out. We were sending pictures to send our friends the next weekend. Would come back in a heart beat.
Service was incredibly friendly and prompt and we received our food quickly. Overall the food was good. We shared a couple small plates. Would highly recommend the fried Brussels sprouts.
Carmellas is always one of my favorite spots to hit in the Southside. The bartenders know what they’re doing and their service is fantastic.
Amazing service and great atmosphere, food and drinks
This is a great restaurant with a number of comfort food itens on the menu and an extensive book of spirits
Charming atmosphere, especially for a cold winter night -- we sat by the center fireplace. Service was really excellent and the hostess (Carmella?) was very accommodating. The beer selection was just okay, and the food was only mediocre. My chicken pot pie was somewhat flavorful, but had no chicken in it. My partner had the chestnut gnocchi, which she reported to be very good. The Buffalo Sprouts were a new and flavorful take on brussels sprouts. I'll give the place another try, but was not blown away by quality
