This place just never disappoints. For us, it is *the* place for a special meal and evening in western New York. Full stop. At our meal last night, the experience was enhanced further still by the warm, genuine hospitality shown by our server Alicia. She was just wonderful. And her recommendation of the budino (sp?) dessert was the proverbial icing on the cake. Bravo, Carmelo’s.

Carmelo's is my go-to when I want to ensure our friends have a great meal. And they never disappoint, including our latest visit. At our suggestion, based on our last meal, our friends ordered the chard pancake followed by the rumache with shrimp and vodka sauce and the cioppino. My husband had the Bolognese and I had linguini with basil and summer squash. We started off with the potatoes with rosemary. Already planning our next visit.

The food was BY FAR the best we ate during our whole trip to Upstate New York- we had the Rigatoni Bolognese, the Calamari salad, the Lobster salad, and the burger. We also had a few cocktails- our server was excellent and would DEFINITELY return here... HIGHLY recommend!

First time eating here.....

My review is that the food was exceptional.....
We had appetizers, drinks and dinner
Food always came out "Hot" not warm.
Which is a huge plus for me.
After dinner we had dessert and it was incredible. We had the chocolate budino. Highly recommend 5stars and 2 thumbs up. Will definitely return.

This is the best restaurant in our little town. Heather was the perfect server, unobtrusive but attentive. The food combines farm fresh chard pancake with horseradish cream and traditional meatballs, or pot au chocolat with heavy cream and a good wine list.

I regret that they charge for bread now but it is worth the small price!

Carmelo's is one of upstate New York's premiere restaurants. It offers exquisitely prepared, farm-to-table meals with an emphasis on authentic Italian preparation. The staff is professional. The food is consistently excellent. And the wine list offers a diverse array of options at affordable price points. We have introduced many out-of-town friends to Carmelo's wonderful food.

My wife and I were visiting from Brooklyn, NY to celebrate our wedding anniversary.
When we arrived, it only took a short while until we were seated by our server, Heather.
We always ask for recommendations when we go out and Heather was well prepared to answer all of our queries. It was dimly lit with an old-world esthetic. Heather's recommendation of the octopus dish as a starter was light, summery, and delightful.
The subsequent entrees and dessert were equally delicious. If we were ever in the area again, we would most certainly have Carmelo's at the top of our list of places to experience.

So glad to see Carmelo's is able to open they are very compliant with the COVID-19 rules for anyone who wants to know. As always the food was absolutely amazing and the waitstaff is outstanding. We had the homemade pasta this time and were not disappointed. The small chocolate mousse for desert was decadent.

Can't wait to go back do not want this restaurant to disappear due to the Pandemic please go and support this small restaurant it is worth the money. If you have a special occasion to celebrate this is the place to do it!

Second time there again the food was amazing, we started with the mixed green salad with the balsamic dressing very light and fresh, For the entrees, I had the gnocchi with lobster and my husband had the veal scallopini we were not disappointed. The wine selection is limited but pairs wonderfully with the entrees. This is fast becoming our favorite restaurant especially for special occasions, it is worth the extra cost. Heather is an amazing server.

Loved our pre Valentines meal. Fresh /warm Italian bread and Coat of Arms olive spread dipping was an ideal starter. My flatbread pizza appetizer was well crafted and delicious. My wife's beet salad was also perfectly served and seasoned. The Duck breast was a bit chewy, but absolutely delicious. Accommodations were made by Chef Carmelo to the Gnocchi to remove the lobster (my wife is vegetarian). Service was superb and dining area was very quaint and comfortable. Wine was first class as were after dinner cocktails. My only complaint was that the price of the Gnocchi was not adjusted for absence of lobster. Great job Carmelo and Staff.

Carmelo never disappoints. My wife tried the ramen dish that was amazing. Chicken dumpling meatballs in the dish were incredible. I had the veal piccata over polenta and this was also very good. Great combo of flavors...but that’s the norm with Carmelo’s.
