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.

Carmelo never disappoints! The blueberry filet was the best it’s been (and it’s already good).

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.

A local gem close to Niagara Falls, but a million miles from the grime and deterioration of that city. Lewiston is a charming small town with lots of shops, restaurants, and parks. Carmelo's has a relatively small menu, but there's a nice variety, and service on a busy summer night was excellent.

A good selection of starters, freshly made pastas and innovative sauces, fish and meat menu items. The quality, portions and presentation of the dishes is always the same whenever we’ve dined at Carmelo’s… first rate. The staff are friendly and helpful. A cozy ambience. Love dining here!

Dining at Carmelos is never a disappointment. It's one of very few restaurants that we totally trust the quality, freshness and cleanliness. So hard to say that with most other restaurants that we frequent.

The filet mignon was amazing, as was the starter meatballs. The orecchiette was good, but not great. It was a busy evening, but the service was not great. Very friendly staff though. I highly recommend for a nice evening out, if visiting.

We had an amazing experience. Out sightseeing, came upon this restaurant and were blown away by the inventive menu. Everything that we ordered had a pleasant surprise to it, and we also got to meet the chef at the end of our evening. They also paid special attention to our son with a severe food allergy and made sure we had a safe and enjoyable meal. The ambiance was fantastic, and our server was wonderful. All-around our favorite dinner of the trip!

We were visiting Niagara Falls, and we found this as a recommendation on Open Table. Our waitress was so friendly and engaging. We both had different homemade pasta dishes that were so fresh and tasty. The strawberry crostata was divine! Definitely recommend this quaint family owned Italian restaurant!
