Description: Carmelo's has been the mainstay of Italian dining in West Vancouver for over twenty years. As fresh today as it was at the beginning. Carmelo's offers a cozy dining experience for all ages and tastes. Featuring a wood fired pizza oven to give you arguably the best pizza in Vancouver, pastas to make your mouth water and entrees ranging from fresh local seafood, lamb rack and numerous veal dishes. The fresh sheet is just that, fresh. The menu is not overly "fussy". Carmelo's is the comfort food place that the locals drop in for a bite to eat without hurting the budget.

My wife felt like having a pizza, so after consulting social media we decided to order a pizza for pick up from Carmelo's as it was relatively close to home, and we did not feel like eating out. The pizza was available quickly, but we were both disappointed with the prosciutto pizza. It was a bit small, and too sweet for my liking. While the oven is wood fired I found the thin crust to taste slightly of soda. It also struck me as being expensive for what one received. The server was fast and polite in a busy setting.

Love, love, LOVE Carmelo's.

My husband and I moved to Vancouver just over a year ago. Carmelo's was one of the first restaurants we went to here, and we've found Carmelo's to be the best spot for Italian cuisine here. The prices are very reasonable, the staff is always friendly and welcoming, and the food is delicious! A truly terrific find!

The food and ambience are good, but what really stands-out in this restaurant is the service: no waiting to flag-down a server and the response to any request is fast and friendly.

A fabulous place to have dinner with family or friends. Excellent friendly service. Food is exceptional!
Request to share selections was received with a genuine acceptance. No eye rolling or statement there would be an extra charge.
Creme brûlée was the best I have ever had.
