Carmelo's Coat of Arms
Nice! Great food with local selections.
Great tasting food enjoyed by all.
The food was absolutely delicious, however there are a few things that need to be mentioned. We had a reservation yet it took the hostess 15 min to figure out where to sit us. We ended up with a tiny table by the kitchen door. The food took an hour to be made. Very inconvenient for a late reservation when you are already starving. Other than that, the meatballs and the lamb were out of this world. The chocolate mouse desert is a must.
We loved Carmelo’s and the quaint atmosphere it had. The food is a little pricey but the quality of it is great so shelling out extra money didn’t seem so bad. We’ll definitely be going back.
I have never had a bad meal at Carmelo’s. Always a delightful experience.
Absolutely the best chef in the area. Never had a bad meal that was created there. Love the farm to table.
Disappointed. Made reservations only to be seated right near the door/ entry where you check in when people who walked in got better seating. Yes, we got forgotten about when it came to placing our drink and food order which was fine because at least our server was aware and apologized after the fact. The real problem was honestly the food. It just wasn't anything to write home about as they say. For 150 dollars I would at least want to take a picture of the food but it wasn't even that worthy. You get about 1.5 cups of pasta for $20 and you would think it better look and taste good. Nope! Long story short my husband got sick later that night not sure if it was the duck pasta or meatballs but it is safe to say he will never go back there. I used to love this place but there are too many other new places here where we live in lewiston that are way better when it comes to food and service. I have mixed feelings because I feel like we just came on an off night.
I bought a second home in Lewiston to eat at Carmelo's
We thought we would give this restaurant a try, but what a disappointment. I typically don’t ever leave reviews, but our experience is worth leaving one in hopes to save future customers. The food was not necessarily bad but was not worth what we paid. One dish ( 1/2 roasted chicken) comes with no sides and is $38 !!! I would have visited again but the prices are very high end for a casual restaurant, with diner type service.
Always a highlight of our annual trip to Niagara Falls. The service is friendly but professional. They always have blue cheese stuffed olives for martinis. The highlights this year were the succulent lamb rib confit, the Arrowhead Springs Red Blend, and the house made vanilla ice cream. Can’t wait to return!
It's what we go to a nice restaurant for - an exquisitely prepared meal that we could not duplicate at home served in a comfortable surrounding. We met a friend for a drink and conversation at the bar and enjoyed a selection of gourmet cheeses. The chef made an appearance, so we asked him for a recommendation for dinner and he suggested the duck breast. We both decided to order that and we were not disappointed. The meat was tender, juicy and perfectly cooked, medium rare center with crisp skin. It was served on farrow with brazed pear and grapes. Carmelo's is a great special occasion restaurant for us that has never failed to please.
Courteous staff and great food with nice size portions. A real treat to eat there
Truly enjoyed our meal. Have been here at other times and will definitely return.
Went to celebrate my wifes birthday, Kathtober! Everything was great, meatballs, lobster salad, Bolognese, and the A'matriciana. We sat and ate at the bar. Mark took great care of us.
In a wheelchair and it was very easy to get in and out, most of Lewiston is not this handicap friendly, despite having an older population. Food was delicious, service always smiling but for such a classy restaurant I was surprises when they brought the lemon I
Always love this place. It never disappoints
Carmelo's is a must visit Lewiston fixture. Great food and service.
Wonderful food and service. Can’t wait to come back.
Authentic, charming, delicious. The atmosphere is on point, quaint, cozy and romantic. I wish I lived in town so I could eat here regularly. We did not have any food left on our plates. Simply Fantastic. I absolutely recommend coming here. Heather was our waitress and she was so friendly and attentive. When we told Heather we were from out of state she willingly gave us suggestions of local places to go, things to do, etc. I hope to be in NY again soon, because when I am I will always come here.
Just love Carmelo’s! Feel at home here and the service and food outstanding! Always want to come back here, looking forward to my next visit.
Nice wine list, small menu but food exceptional. Homemade Pasta is delicious!
1 st time I’ve been to an Italian restaurant and didn’t take home leftovers, the perfect portion.
Loved it! Will return
Always a wonderful meal and experience at Carmelo’s! Especially when we can sit by the window and people watch. Staff is friendly and efficient. Cozy atmosphere. Our favorite!
Love it there! Diane is great!!! The food is always amazing!
Went out for a diner at this fine restaurant and enjoyed every moment. Heather was a fantastic server and made everyone feel special. We changed the reservation from 6:45 to 5pm and they were willing and eager to serve us. The food from the bread and tapenade was great. Good extra virgin olive oil. Nice balsamic as well. The sauces was excellent on the pizza, the spaghetti and bucatini. The rigatoni was excellent as well without using a tomato sauce. Dessert was special as they served me the ricotta cheesecake and it was amazing. We also had the tiramisu which was amazing. I highly recommend the restaurant and our server Heather. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
Food, as always, was delicious.
During dinner, it started to pour rain!
One of our servers, Diane, went to her car to get an umbrella for us to use to get to our car!
The food is superb. Carmelo's never disappoints and is always a place I look forward to spending time at. Carmelo and his staff hit the ball out of the park every single time. Thank you so much for an amazing anniversary meal!
My halibut was dry. Really have not had a great meal here in years. But I don’t give up...
Had the pizza of the day and the Kale salad as an appetizer. Absolutely delicious. The grilled zucchini with poached egg on top for my main entree hit the spot. My husband enjoyed his filet mignon with risotto. Atmosphere is relaxed. Nice for our anniversary dinner. Server was always right on point. Enjoyed everything about our meal. Highly recommend.
Great! Good place to be with friends!!!
We would absolutely recommend. Haven't had a dining experience like this in many, many years.
I took my wife this weekend for her birthday and I must say it was an exquisite experience! Thank you for a great night filled with great food and better service! God bless!
Dinner was wonderful and the service was top notch! The filet served with a lemon risotto was cooked perfectly and full of flavor.
My favorite restaurant in the Village of Lewiston. And the owner's are just the top people. Carmelo loves his food and it shows. Can't miss.
We had the meatball appetizer was very good the lamb appetizer was outstanding my wife had the Bolognese entree it was outstanding and I had to Krispy Chicken and it was outstanding I would recommend eating there anytime
NICE PLACE TO EAT IF YOU WANT TO SPEND A BIG WAD OF CASH AND GO HOME HUNGRY. WIFE HAD THE CHICKEN DISH, PAID $24.OO FOR 1 PIECE OF CHICKEN. PASTA DISHES WERE SMALL, ONE HAD SHRIMP THE OTHER ANCHOVIES. PAID ALMOST $24.00 EACH. BEER IS SERVED IN A SMALL GLASS, BEST PART OF THE MEAL WAS THE BREAD. I AM AN ACCOMPLISHED ITALIAN COOK, 2 SMALL DESSERT ONE ROUND OF 4 BEERS, THE BILL WAS OVER $200.00. i COULD DUPLICATE THE ENTIRE MEAL, LESS THE BEER, FOR UNDER TWENTY BUCKS. ALL SERVED ALA CARTE, A NICE WAY TO PAD THE BILL, EVERYTHING IS EXTRA. AT LEAST THE BATHROOMS ARE CLEAN. VERY, VERY DISAPPOINTING. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE. MUCH TO DO ABOUT
Food was ok, pan seared halibut a bit over cooked. Had to remind waitress a few times for our order. I’ve had other meals and service here that was outstanding.
The food is always high quality, cooked to perfection. I love the changing menu every time I go. Beef, fish, pasta never a bad choice. Service very attentive.
Outstanding food and service. Would recommend for a simple dinner to special occasion celebration. 10++
The food was exquisite, the cocktails were just right, and our server was excellent - very intuitive about pacing our meal as we wanted to linger and enjoy each course. A perfect evening!
Top notch venue in Center Street in Lewiston! Waitress was skilled and warm. Meal was delicious! Good wine selection.
