One of the quietest restaurants around anymore. Escargot was double what some restaurants serve. Entrees were delicious and we had a superb bottle of Chianti. Overall bill was less than several other similar places we've visited lately.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMNight out away from the kidsThe restaurant was a great atmosphere to be in for a relaxing night. I and a friend of mine are both single parents and we rarely get time to go out to a quiet dinner. The food was amazing as well along with amazing service. There was only one point when we first sat down where the service was a little slow getting to us but overall it was great.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Graduation CelebrationFood, service and ambiance great for our college graduation celebration!

Very helpful and friendly staff.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother cherished memoryA lovely dinner with my sons and their families. In 1992 we came upon Carmelo's when our son began his education at the University of Texas. As I looked across the dining room, the times we have shared came alive including his wedding rehearsal dinner about 7 years ago in their private dining room. The ambiance and service, the Bisteca Diana, the dessert card are established and will hopefully remain. New memory shared with now... grandchildren and our other son's wife. Love this restaurant!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMContinental ItalianNot just your average Italian restaurant. Excellent menue, surroundings, service and attention to detail.

Great ambiance, decor and the wait staff is about as impeccable as you will ever experience. Great food from start to finish. Pricey, of course, but well worth it in my humble view when you really need an escape from the fast/junk food nation.

It was easy enough to find downtown - right next to Esther's Follies. There is valet parking available for those who don't want to wander around, looking for a parking spot. The ambiance was old world Italian - there's also a nice outdoor seating area & water feature.
The food was great - we ordered the lobster bisque, Ossobucco, & Gamberi Ripieni. Everything was really good - the Ossobucco was exceptional! Flavorful and super tender paired with great risotto - it's a keeper!
The only 1 exception to make this 5 stars... no diaper changing station.
Definitely not "family friendly".4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAnd I'm not a big pasta fan but....Staying in downtown Austin for the night and needed some place to carb-load before running the Statesman 10k race. This was a couple blocks from our hotel and got great reviews so we booked a last minute reservation and decided to try it. It was fantastic! I am not a big pasta person, especially out at restaurants but the food here was FULL of flavor and cooked to perfection! We were very impressed by the nice staff, good food and romantic ambiance! It was perfect! Will definitely go here again.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMMost of our food was veryMost of our food was very good, however, the red fish was somewhat overcooked.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot for a date night!We have been to this restaurant twice - both times it was great!4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMEaster brunch buffet had aEaster brunch buffet had a great selection of delicious dishes - appetizers, entrees, desserts.
