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.

A fine restaurant indeed- to be visited and remembered. Restaurants are often assessed by their clientele and this one certainly has discerning customers. It shows in the rustic Trattoria kind of ambience backed up by authentic Italian food with visual appeal and great flavour. The pizzas, pastas and grills are all there waiting to be ordered. The servers are efficient if a bit harried by the full house. Good selection of beers and wines. Would visit again when in Vancouver next. Don’t miss guys!

One of the best Italian restaurants I’ve been to. The pizza was delicious and cooked really well in their wood fired pizza oven. We walked in without booking, and upon seeing a full restaurant we expected to be turned away, but the host found some space and was very helpful. Lots of choice for vegetarians and decent sized portions. I highly recommend this restaurant.

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.
