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.

Previously I did not eat here very often but now they are minestrone soup is a vegetarian – previously had chicken stock. Now I am happy to eat there more often. The minestrone is very good as is there margarita pizza. Different specials every day and often quite interesting.

Good service with a full bar, conveniently located right on Marine Drive. Parking may be a bit difficult but if one is prepared to walk a block or two should be easy, and always free.

I would not recommend travelling from Vancouver just to go to this place, but if a person is on the North Shore, a recommended Italian restaurant.

Fab little place on Marine Drive, West Vancouver, very busy though on a Wednesday evening, which is always a good sign. We were seated OK but there was only one table left, the staff were very friendly and knew the menu and all the specials well. The starters were great, as were the main courses. Good beer recommended by our server. All in all, highly recommended, it's a pity we were not in town longer as we would have gone back.

Service was impeccable, as was the food. Busy but added to the ambiance. Sit by the window if you can.

Carmelo’s in Ambleside Village is maybe the best Italian food in West Vancouver. Great service and excellent food. Just a few blocks from the beach and seawall. Great for lunch or dinner.

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.
