My husband and I went on date night to Carmello's and had a lovely time. Both the service and the food were excellent.

Carmello's is the best and my wife and I have always had a delicious meal there. They continue to improve their menu selection and every dish I have had has been superb. Highly recommend Carmello's to anyone wanting a delicious meal.

“Can be hit or miss”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

I have eaten here many times. I usually stick with pasta dishes which are usually quite good. My last visit, the dinner rolls were partially frozen. We sent them back only to get several more that were still frozen. Probably just as well because who wants bread that's not fresh. They used to serve great bread. Don't know why they switched. I will still eat here as it is still one of the best places in the area.
