Always great host or hostess greeting guests. Wine bar is small but great selection. Menu has delicious options and specials are excellent. Can be very loud environment. Not great place for small kids.

You can see their menu online... search for Carmella's Bistro Appleton... They have a fillet mignon and a pork chop.... numerous chicken dishes... and some seafood options... all "Italian" style. EXCELLENT FOOD!
