We made a late booking and they were very busy. Despite this our waiter was very attentive and the food was very good, the seafood pasta was amazing. Hope to visit again.

I love going here to eat because he surroundings are beautiful, if it’s hot you can sit outside and the food is fantastic. Not the normal lasagne or Carbonara usually dished up.

One of the oldest building home of Carmela Restaurant , with our roots in the fashionable area of Horsham, a once guest house of Henry 7th ; there is an air of ambient charm as both staff and clientele creates a warm and stylish vibe to the day’s dining experience. Carmela has been serving excellent mediterranean food as fresh as possible, in the most unpretentious and honest ways since 2007 and continues to do so today. The menu is resolutely modern, we insist on sourcing from authentic Italian produce from our suppliers based in various regions of Italy. Our philosophy is simplicity, passion, and recognition.
