One of my top 3 favorites. It's a great place to celebrate special occasions. Love the patio out door. Food is always great and the service is top notch

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!
