New Age Nostalgia

The menu is filled with classic Italian nostalgia infused with creative modern twists. The chef has sacrificed none of the flavor and comfort of traditional Italian cuisine when giving each dish an unexpected modern twist. The squid ink pasta and the dessert "pop tart" were unforgettable!!!

The food is very interesting and always changing. Sadly I cannot recommend the awareness of the owners. We were very faithful customers, eating here at least five to six times a year. We decided this is where we wished to celebrate our anniversary. When booking I asked for table by the window, explaining our special day. When we arrived they... More

Next time you travel to Lewiston, NY to see a show at Artpark, dine at Carmelo's Restaurant on Center Street. Conveniently located minutes from Artpark and the Italian food is fabulous. So good Jeffry Zarkarian from Food Network's "Chopped" was dining there with family !!! Our waiter said he is a regular patron.

We haven't been to Carmelo's in probably over a year because our last visit was so-so and when you're likely to drop at least $100 on dinner you want to really feel as though it's worth it. We stopped in one night last weekend (sorry but I forgot whether it was Friday night or Saturday). We didn't have reservations but... More

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
