A neighborhood favorite since 1981, Carmelo’s Cucina Italiana is a traditional, family-owned and operated restaurant serving fresh, rustic Italian-American food nestled between Houston’s Memorial area and Energy Corridor. Known for its creative yet approachable fare, Proprietor Benjamin Berg and his brother and Executive Chef Daniel Berg are committed to sourcing only the highest-quality, Italian products paired with the best local ingredients available.

Where La Famiglia e Tutto (family is everything), the menus feature a wide selection of traditional and nontraditional meat, seafood and pasta dishes with vegetarian and gluten-free options – all made fresh daily. Carmelo’s has a full bar including a selection of domestic and international beers and liquors, along with an extensive, Italian wine collection.

A contemporary, yet welcoming design and first-class service make Carmelo’s a great choice for lunch business meetings, as well as casual dinners with family.
