Our Favorite Restaurant in Lewiston (Niagara Falls Area)

We used to live in Lewiston and have been back many times. Carmelo's is by far our favorite. The menu is exquisite and the food is delicious. I can't wait to return and eat there. If you are looking for a slightly romantic, nice atmosphere for a date, this is a nice location.

I have simple tastes; meat and potatoes, pasta, seafood.. the menu seems to have returned to more traditional items which had me back twice in the past two weeks. Excellent dinners for everyone and the service has always been top notch. Menu does seem to change frequently, but there are always entrees for simple tastes as well. One suggestion: Beer... More

We have eaten at Carmelo's twice and both times the meals have been fantastic. The food is creative - everything has a twist. Swiss Chard Pancakes, Bolognese Sauce with a hint of horseradish, homemade olives which are delicious, short ribs and polenta - WOW! All of the pasta is homemade and fantastic! Do not come here if you want a... More

You don't come here for huge portions with a big take home box...no this is the meal you want to savor the combinations of flavors, enjoy the variety and difference from what you might make at home. Especially enjoyed the donut holes for desert. These really should be described as probably the best donut that you have ever had...just enough... More

I will start off by saying this restaurant is very quaint. I enjoyed the ambiance. The menu was very small...not much to choose from. The rice ball appetizer was good. I had the braciole for an entree. It was just so so. My friend had a pasta dish that was good but the portion was small for the $17 price.... More

We recently had dinner at Carmelo's during a stay in Lewiston. I agree with another reviewer that the menu is limited however what we had was truly wonderful. We were able to try a few different things on the menu and both of us were very pleased. We appreciated the natural, seasonal ingredients prepared in a simple manner but with... More
