Authentic Italian Cuisine
Amazing Italian-influenced Taste
Carmela's is one of South Bend's most beloved fine dining establishments. Known for its Italian-influenced cuisine, Carmela’s came to be when George Jr. Macri became intent on sharing his wife’s phenomenal cooking with the public. Named after George’s wife, Carmela, the restaurant’s menu is a true reflection of the dishes the Macri family makes for their own special occasions. All of the recipes and cooking comes from Carmela herself, ensuring that every customer gets a real taste of Italy in every bite.
Designed to be relaxing yet romantic, Carmela's is a true reflection of dining in southern Italy with arched walls, a sky-painted ceiling, a fountain centerpiece, and Tuscany-inspired ambience.
