We had dinner here after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. My husband and I liked this place very much, the interior was very charming and the menu was different. They had several pasta dishes, steak and seafood. They also had an olive appetizer that I loved. The bread was freshly made and served with a tapenade and olive oil with garlic... More

Super food, great service. Had a local (Niagara) wine, homemade ice cream. Yum yum! Lobster starter and sock eye salmon main, both very well cooked. Must go on the list of places to return to. Diane was our waitress, helpful and knowledgable.

We went with another couple on a Saturday evening in August, right after the Art Festival. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. Our server, Diane, was very accommodating, knowledgeable and humorous in an edgy way. She was great. The atmosphere is casual and for adults only. Nice looking bar area. The food was fabulous. We started with the... More

We ordered a bottle of wine with I though had reasonable pricing, the selection was not large but a good assortment. The food was excellent, great presentation, a little pricey, the portions were not... More

We first tried a sample at Carmela's while we were on the Roaming Table food tour. The sample was so delicious we decided to go back for dinner. It's a lovely, small Italian restaurant. The food was to die for. We we started with a cold corn soup with lump crab. It was all I could do not to lick... More

Over priced and unimpressed with the food quality. Whatever the seafood between the buns was is a mystery and to be avoided. Pasta was less than ala dente and seemed like a half portion. Expensive and disappointing for what we got.

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!
