I actually was skeptical but I was sooo elated we tried Carmelo's! The food is high end. Do not come if you are looking for something plain Jane and ordinary. This is amazing, out of the box, type of cuisine. For my foodies, Geoffrey Zakarian was there when we were there. For those of you who don't know, Geoff is... More

Trip Advisor rated Carmelo's very highly. We cannot concur. The waitress was TERRIBLE! We arived about 8:15pm (not a busy time) on 21 July 2014. The waitress took 20 minutes to first talk to us. We saw her at the table next to us several times during the 20 minutes (we did not know at that time she was our... More

Seldom have we found each and every dish served to be wonderful, but Carmelo's did just that. From the olive tapinade served with fresh bread to the crostata for dessert, everything was tasty and each had a nice surprise - an unexpected ingredient or seasoning. The tapenade had a subtle flavor from celery; the squid ink pasta had a touch... More

Located on quaint Main Street in Lewiston Carmelo's was a lovely surprise. Service was excellent. Inside was noisy so we sat at one of only a few tables outside. We were served sajada with bread and it was amazing. It was like a bruschetta topping but instead of tomatoes it was olives, celery, onions and chilies. Amazing! The Caesar salad... More

Food was ok. For how fancy the place is I expected more refined something. The menu was very short and it was tough to find something for an entree. The homemade pasta was nice. The chicken dressed with a ton of scallions way too many to eat and they didn't go with the dish. It was only ok.

Our stove blew up and we Had to go to Carmelo's last night. Soft shell crab appetizer was fantastic. I always get Carmelo's home made pasta and it was great with TMeadow farms homemade sausage. My husband, who doesn't think it's dinner without meat had the Pork Melanaise which was served with asparagus over I think arugula. Pork tender and... More

We were treating ourselves because we had just found out we were having our first baby!! My husband got the steak, it was cooked perfectly. I decided to be adventerous & get the pork belly.... More

2nd visit to Carmelo’s and we both really enjoyed our meals. Experienced a minor mishap during our dinner, but our server quickly recovered and we were very pleased with our dinner. The lobster ravioli is very yummy! My boyfriend even commented that he liked the style of the restaurant with the mason jar water and overall restaurant atmosphere. Great date... More
