Food was good years ago and probably still is. They used to have music on Friday and Sat. nights but don't know if they still do.

We were early on a Sunday, about 6pm, and there was only one other table. The service was very attentive and helpful. I would have liked to see more than one vegetarian item on the menu, and someone ought to tell the chef that real vegetarians don't eat fish, so please don't label that vegetarian! It might be better to... More

My friends and I know we will always have a great time at Carmelo's. Have been going there for years. Located in old Town and a fine dining experience. Plan to walk off the meal and experience days gone by

Enjoyed nice quiet Valentine's dinner-the day BEFORE Valentines! Had great waiter who was well informed with the menu. Our waiter, Adalid, gave helpful recommendations. Loved the homemade lobster ravioli and my husband enjoyed the pork shank over mashed potatoes and asperagus. Waiter was attentive but nonrushed. Our order was accurate. Liked the quiet atmosphere - which allowed for conversation. Sensed... More

Fabulous evening for an early Valentines Dinner. My husband and I were served complementary prosecco before our meal. Our server also brought out warm bread. We each ordered filets, and they were cooked perfectly. The restaurant was celebrating their 30th anniversary so the entrees were 30% off. Nice bonus! Always great service at this local gem. Staff is very friendly... More

I have visited Carmello's often but this is my first review of Carmello's. It is a great restaurant with a superb wait staff who know their menu and also the right wine recommendations. The menu is a nice blend of regional Mediterranean food and American Staples, such as steak and seafood. The paella is superb and their soups are always... More

This is a fine dining experience, offering an impressive array of Italian and Portuguese dishes. The selections include seafood, lamb, veal, vegetarian and gluten free entrees plus creative appetizers and desserts. The wine list is similarly varied, offering sufficient breadth to satisfy many taste preferences. The atmosphere is warm, intimate, and friendly. Although a bit pricey, the experience is well...

Four of us dined at Carmello's and had salad and main entrees. The food was OK. The salad looked great but was so dry it needed more dressing. Couldn't find the waiter. My wife had duck and she loved it. Our friends had chicken/crab and the filet and liked it very much. I had the Veal over grits. The veal... More

I'm so very sorry that we didn't meet your expectations with our food and service my sincere apologies. As for the wine list we do have wines from $ 28 to $400 I'm not sure what list you were presented with but our list has lots of wines under $70. I understand that you prefer Katarina's and Malones and I... More
