Owned by Joseph and Anna Marie Maglio, Cafe Carmela is named after Joe’s mother Carmela who was born in Gravina in puglia, Italy. Carmela immigrated to the US when she was only 3 years old. Combining Carmela’s Italian home cooking mastery, our talented chefs, and Anna Marie’s South Philly roots, you’re guaranteed an authentic Italian experience. We strive to produce the best in quality and service while offering the comfort of a home cooked Italian meal.
Our family pizzeria in The Northeast serves recipes that have been handed down from generation to generation, dating back to Joe’s great great grandmother and grandfather in a small town in Italy. With a touch of unique Philly style, we have perfected our pizzas to satisfy even the greatest of pizza lovers. Our caring and devoted staff will ensure you have an amazing experience with us. Welcome to the Family!
