We were in town and had not eaten since the day before. We decided to have a late lunch and enjoyed it, until later . . . ! The atmosphere was very nice. We had a bottle of nice wine and both of our meals were very good. We ran into several family members later that day and told them... More

Do not go there. The staff is rude. Atmosphere is nice but with so many choices, you can go somewhere with a pleasant staff.

We've eaten hear quite a few times and I find most Tripadvisor reviews spot on. The service is a little slow mostly due to the kitchen. The servers are trained to respond that fresh Italian food takes time to cook from scratch! Overall, it just seems that the restaurant is mostly average with regards to the food, service and menu...

We were the only ones in the restaurant and took over an hour to get our food. Had to ask for refills on drinks and bread. Food was decent but a little over priced. Temperature of food could have been hotter.

We dine here often, and enjoy the experience each time. The food is prepared upon ordering, but what I like most about this restaurant is the presentation. It is like being in Italy. Do not go here if you are in a rush, as this is a restaurant for people wanting a dining experience. The server presents the specials for... More

Whatever you order will not be started until you order. The food was great, fresh and authentic. If you are in a rush, this is not your place. If you want to feel like you are in Italy, where table turnover is not important, then you must eat here!

We have been to Carmelo's since they moved to Mandeville. Wonderful traditional "real" Italian food. Fresh seafood and the best steaks ever. Mr C personally selects his steaks and seafood...even his vegetables. Fun and educational cooking classes and fantastic wine dinners. The pizzas are very good and my favorite is the sausage roll. If you like Osso Bucco then you... More

I have eaten at Carmelo's many times with business associates and with family. We have always enjoyed our meals because they are made with fresh ingredients and very well made. The service has always been excellent whenever we visited.

Many folks have misconceptions as to what geniune Italian food is. leaning on pizza, spaghetti, lasagna, canneloni, etc. as exemplars. Having eaten Italian food in Italy, the food is fresh, made with seasonally available ingredients, differs by region and is not smothered in tomato sauce. Carmelo serves fabulous Italian food. For our dinner this past Saturday, we ordered the mussels... More
