Carmela Cucina Italiana is a hidden gem in San Marcos. Located off Grand Ave near San Marcos Blvd & tucked behind some office space, you’d never guess this Italian restaurant existed.
You’ll be pleasantly surprised when you dine here. Great food, service & a reasonably priced menu. Every meal comes with soup of the day & salad. The specials always sound delicious…especially their appetizer specials.
Equipped with a full bar, they also have a minimal corkage fee of $15 if you bring in your own bottle.
Open Tuesday through Sunday. Check them out online for hours & list of menus.
