Went with a group of 10 people for a business dinner. Great authentic Italian menu. Appetizers and main courses were very tasty and a great variety. I would go back again just for the corn salsa accompaniment. We had full course meals plus several bottles...More

As for the negative, if you are looking to have a romantic dinner or catch up with friends, then I wouldn't recommend Carmella's. It was extremely loud and tables are crowded. Also, no hard liquor as they only serve wine and beer. Moving beyond that,...More

A Gem for sure. Every dish includes unique and exotic ingredients that you may have never even heard of but are tantalizing to try. From caramelized fennel to roasted beets, figs, pine nuts, excellent choice of cheese plates and meat...OMG I could go on and...More

i've been here a number of times on business dinners and although it's got some good wines and the food can be very good, i find the table layout to be crowded and not reflective to the experience you should get for the price.

I've only been there twice, but the menu is pretty big and staff seems great and I'm sure they would take care of you.

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!
