Amazing place caint wait till its open in new location
Great local place!! Never disappointed at Carmelo’s - great food and good service.
Delicious food. Had an appetizer with fresh mozzarella, prosciutto, fig sauce! Yum! Split an entree for a small fee and enjoyed freshly made cheesecake. Ate there for the second time in a week. Will definitely return! Can’t wait to see the new location!
First time there everything was excellent can't wait to go back.
We chose this restaurant based on location and online reviews. We drove up from Fort Myers to meet our son who drove down from Sarasota. This was an exceptional Italian Restaurant. Fresh, homemade pastas, bread. Every meal we had was delicious. We went here for my birthday but I can see coming back for any occasion. The ambience was great - I imagine this is what an Italian eatery in Italy must be like - one day! Everything was fantastic from the appetizer to the cannoli. I highly recommend. We will be going back.
Incredible service and food,had the bada Bing best italian dish I ever ate.
Nice atmosphere but food is very blan. Needs more garlic and spice.
Fabulous food and excellent staff. Carmelo’s is terrific!!!
We love Carmelo's. The food is always excellent. Friday night I had the shrimp and scallops limoncello, which is my favorite. The seafood was large and perfectly cooked---sauce and pasta yummy. The portions are big enough to take home a little for later and the prices are very reasonable. My husband said his penne was delicious. During the season it can get very crowded, so we are really looking forward to the move this fall into their new space.
Food was fantastic from appetizers to salads to entrees. Bread was hot from the oven accompanied by wonderfully seasoned olive oil. Servers, Nick and Jack, were very attentive and service was outstanding. The owner, who was very personable , stopped by our table to chat and get feedback. The lobster raviolis with shrimp on top were amazing. Can’t wait to go back!!
CARMELO'S IS DELICIOUS AND HAS BECOME OUR FAVORITE PUNTA GORDA RESTAURANT!
Always a treat! Can't wait until they move to their new location!
Consistently good Italian food. We look forward to the opening of the new location.
The food was fabulous! Large portions .... 4 of us ordered 4 difference dinners. I think we all thought OURS were the best :-) great staff/family owners. We will be back to their new larger place opening soon. Looking forward to it. Yummm
Our whole evening here was wonderful. This is a local, family-owned restaurant, and it is so nice to get away from the chains and their standard menu items and substandard service. The menu items are creative, and everything we had was delicious. You could tell the staff is invested in the business because our server was outstanding and was excited to share about her mother's cheesecake that was on the menu and somebody's father had created another one of the dishes. She was excited to describe several dishes to us when we were trying to decide and did not rush us at all. The manager came by our table to check on us several times and shared with us their new location they're moving to soon. Everything from the service from the time we walked in the door until we walked out the door to the food and the ambiance turned an average "Thank God it's Friday" night out into a special evening.
Everything about Carmelo's is first-rate. The food is delicious and the staff is very friendly.
Always a fabulous meal with exceptional service!
Looking forward to visiting you in your new location.
Our waitress was truly outstanding. The pasta appetizer was excellent as were the specials offered. We are looking forward to another visit.
By far Carmelo ‘s is our favorite Italian restaurant, you will not find any better in the area. Everything is made fresh when ordered & so delicious, can never finish my meal , so it reheats for my favorite lunch. Looking forward to their move with a full service bar in a few weeks!🤗
Great Italian food plus creative specials. 'For real' soups & salads. Love the roasted veggie pesto flatbread for lunch and for dinner, the burrata with prosciutto & fig sauce and a perfectly done, massive veal chop with creamy spinach and mushroom sauce when available. YUM! Limited election of good wines. Wonderful people, lots of special attention, makes us feel like family. Too spoiled to dine out anywhere else!
The food and service were superb. It made for a great anniversary celebration. My wife and I look forward to Carmelo's new location.
We arrived earlier than our reservation but was seated immediately. Our server was was nice and very knowledgeable about both the wines and the menu. We did not feel rushed and our food was exceptional. We enjoyed every aspect of our visit. We will return and can not wait for the new location to pen.
As always ~ exceptional !!
Excellent food And service.
Great Food - retired we watch our $$ - we only dine out on special occasions at special places.
I'd give it six stars if I could. Everything was outstanding. The chef is the owner and does the cooking. Obviously takes great pride in his work. Moving to a much larger nearby location in September. That's great because the current location is a bit small.
Had friends in town and everyone enjoyed their meal. Carmelo's niece Alexia served us and she was cute, bubbly, and she took care of everything with a smile. We can't wait for the new location to open!
Entries were very good. Our server was attentive and informed. The bruschetta was very good and the presentation spot on. They really need to work on their salad. Limp greens with a few olives. We (4) were there for a birthday. They put us in a small back room facing a wall. No ambiance at all.
The best food and the best people. Our favorite place!
Always a good experience at Carmelo's. Solid Italian food with plentiful portions.
Our waitress this visit Celeste was excellent. Very kind and accommodating. She did a great job in catering to our youngest who was being cranky.
We visited Carmelo's based on a recommendation. Looking forward to the new location opening soon and another visit to Carmelo's.
Have visited this restaurant and the food is the same quality every time. Can't wait to try the new location.
Just great food and great service!! Our server Misty was great. We will be back when they open new location.
The food was great. It was really pretty noisy and the tables are close together. Not a place where I could bring my elderly parents as it would be too noisy although they would love the food.
Carmelo’s has the best authentic Italian cuisine that we have ever tasted. The food is indescribably delicious and the service is impeccable!
We had a very nice dining experience. The food is fabulous and the friendly faces make Carmelo's a great restaurant. We highly recommend it.
Great authentic Italian food. Fresh and tasty. Felt like I was back in Italy!
Wish I had room to try dessert. Quite a beautiful selection.
It was a great date night dinner with my husband. We definitely will return.
Food was fabulous. My only critique if I had to have one would be that they asked how is everything a little too much.
Outstanding as always! One of our favorites.
Service is great. Menu has something for everyone.
We have NEVER been disappointed with the food or service at Carmelo’s.
Our server, Nick, was perfectly attentive. The food was soooo excellent! The desserts were wonderful. Would have preferred a quieter location.
