We met another couple for dinner before a concert at Artpark, nearby. Each couple shared a house salad. The other woman asked for ice for her wine several times before it finally was served. Her husband asked to not have garlic scapes on his veal saltimbocca. He got the garlic scapes that he didn't want, and I received none. The... More

Had a couples' dinner at Carmelo's on the river near sunset. The wait staff were wonderful, wine was good, food was very good. Service was reasonably quick and did not feel rushed. The sunset was fabulous. Would highly recommend if you're in the area!

A very typical Italian restaurant and menu. I know good food preparation takes time. Portions were slightly smaller than most. Wouldn't take kids there. You'll struggle to find something they will eat. Spent $180 on dinner for four.

What a delightful meal. Lobster over greens as the salad for my husband. I had a wonderful mixed greens with gorgonzola and yam straws with balsalmic vin. Veal Saltimbacca and cod with white beans and greens. Limited menu which is perfect. All fresh made pastas. Lovely atmosphere. Wait staff wonderful. We always make it a point to visit Carmelos when... More

We went here for my wife's birthday last week and really enjoyed the experience. The waitress was real friendly and my wife was very pleased with her meal. The menu changes with the seasons at this establishment and it receives a lot of good compliments from the locals. My wife says this is now her favorite restaurant in the area... More

14 of us attended a dinner at Carmelo's after our board meeting. The atmosphere was very nice (although a bit chilly). The 2 servers were very upbeat and helpful. The drink orders and appetizers were delivered in a timely manner. The dinner however took a bit longer than reasonable. My pasta with shimp (in a vodka-tomato sauce) was okay. The... More

This is not only the most consistently excellent restaurant in Lewiston, but for many miles as well. We dined here last night were blown away by the quality of the food and wonderful, tag team, service. We started with the spaghetti carbonara. If this is on the menu, order it! Sublime and perfectly cooked pasta blends with Chef Carmelo's uber... More

We had heard great things about this restaurant. Great food and top notch service. We went there with three other couples. Boy were we disappointed. While the food was good the very poor service ruined what should have been a good experience. One of the members of our group ordered wine with his meal and it never arrived until he... More
