The entire Carmela’s Family is thrilled and excited to announce that we are officially back OPEN! We know it has been a long three months, but we could not be happier to open our doors and welcome you all back into our restaurant.
We are truly humbled by the support that our community has shown us this winter, and we thank each and every one of you for staying connected with us during this time.
We may be back with an updated look, but please know our high standards in hospitality and culinary excellence have not changed.
As of Today, April 4 2016, We’re Back! Come join us, and let us remind you all of exactly what you were missing.
In 1974, Pasquale “Pat” and Giovanni “John” Viscariello, brothers from Airola, Italy opened their first restaurant in the small town of Kingston, Massachusetts. They decided to name their restaurant “Mamma Mia’s” in honor of their Mother. Their wives, Maria “Francesca” and Eugenia “Jenny” worked beside them. Their children, Salvatore “Sam”, Antonio “Tony”, Gina, and John, grew up in the business, making pizza boxes by the hundreds until they were tall enough to reach the pizza counter. 40 years later, their Grandchildren are hand tossing pizza and learning the business. Mamma Mia’s quickly became known as “The first name in family dining”. Inspired by integrity and traditional family values. The generations continue working together serving the highest quality, authentic, Italian food.
In 1996 the Viscariello Family opened their fine dining establishment in Kingston called Carmela’s Italian Restaurant & Lounge. Carmela’s is named after Pasquale and Giovanni’s mother Carmela!
The Viscariello family mission today remains unchanged. Provide superior hospitality, reasonable prices, and old world Italian food with great pride and dedication. Buon Appetito! Enjoy!
