One of our favourite restaurants on the North Shore. John is more than welcoming. The food is excellent. I always have the veal cannelloni and it is truly amazing. I had affogato for dessert and I love it. Service is above average. We will continue...to come back regularly.More

Excellent service and delicious food! Very attentive server and made our bad day into a relaxing wonderful evening. Prawns were perfectly cooked, salad was well seasoned. Chicken was perfectly done, not over cooked just the right tenderness. Most of all pasta was done just like...its done in Italy. I highly recommend Carmelos Restaurant, it will be a experience to remember for a long eternity. Thank you Carmelos staff for making my day perfect!More

Went for a small (3) family dinner. The food was just ok, except for my lasagne, which was lukewarm (at best). On top of the poor food, the service was indifferent - there were only 4 tables seated, but it took a long time to...get our food, and we sat with the bill for 5 minutes before someone finally arrived with the CC machine. The people walking-in for takeout orders seem to be served quickly ... maybe their food was also hot/warm. Not inclined to go back and get poorly served, substandard food.More

We went for a very nice dinner tonight and split a Caesar salad and enjoyed the fettucine as well as veal piccata. Everything was cooked perfectly and the service was excellent.

My friends and I absolutely loved our experience at Carmelo's. From the moment we were greeted by friendly faces to the last bite of tiramisu, everything was exceptional. The mixed greens salad was perfectly balanced, with blue cheese, candied pecans, slices of apple, and house...made vinaigrette appealing to all taste buds. The Linguini al Pesto was rich in flavour, and the Filleto di Manzo was one of the best filets I have EVER had...so tender! Tiramisu, which reminded me of my Nonna's, was the perfect way to end the night. Shauna was a very knowledgeable server on the wines we had as well as the ingredients within the dishes. She was very friendly and accommodating! The restaurant itself is very cozy. Overall, such a wonderful experience. Would 10/10 recommend! Thank you, Carmelo's!More

Simply fabulous food. Excellent service. Its a hidden gem in West Vancouver near Ambleside beach. A family owned and operated restaurant, with superb attentive service. Don’t miss it.

Sorry to not answer earlier. However I would recommend that you call Carmelo’s directly as I’m not in charge of the menu!
