I had the squash soup with crispy herbs - it was unique and the best I ever had. I also ordered the fillet which came with polenta and a blueberry balsamic medley that was so delightful! 5 stars!!!

The three of us had a great experience at Carmrlo’s. The atmosphere was cozy and comfortable and clean. Cocktails and wine were excellent. Service was just right… attentive, friendly and polite. Food was outstanding, flavorful and cooked perfectly. The homemade pasta with vodka sauce was soooo delicious and the shrimp was tender and not overcooked. The Caesar salad was the best I’ve ever had. Chocolate budino was an excellent dessert.

Food was creatively presented, delicious, and hot but still moist (hard to accomplish with swordfish). Service was professional, polite and knowledgeable. Only negative, and a small one, was our table was by the door and cold air hit us when diners came and went. Overall, a great dining experience.

Fabulous food and service as per usual. Love, love, love the new outside seating area. The only recommendation I have for improvement is to put up some additional fencing to block the parking lot security light when it comes on.

ALWAYS a fabulous meal at Carmelo's CoA! Staff is friendly, courteous and professional.
Despite doing a great job of socially distancing the tables, there were a group (?) of about 8-10 maskless people at the bar area standing around with drinks talking. Yes, they could all be vaccinated, as are we, but it made us nervous, so we left.

We've never been disappointed when we've dined there... still would highly encourage people to enjoy Carmelo's.

A small, charming restaurant in historic Lewiston, Ny. The decor is homey, the staff very knowledgeable about their menu, and quickly make you feel right at home. The chef/owner is committed to bringing the freshest ingredients to the table. I highly recommend any of the homemade pasta dishes. You will not only enjoy your first visit, but your future ones as well.

Carmelo's has excellent food and service, it is a small restaurant and depending on who is seated at a table near you, you might find it a bit noisy. That issue aside, it is the location we regularly got to for celebration dinners.
