Carmela’s Italian Restaurant & Lounge
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!
