We have eaten here before, but not for a number of years. There has been some remodeling and changes in the menu, but we still love it and will return. There is a reasonable wine list with a good selection of varietals by the glass or by the bottle. The menu has been pared down, but there seemed to be... More

I visit Niagara Falls annually, and always eagerly anticipate dinner at Carmelo's. It never disappoints. Chef Carmelo keeps the menu small and interesting - always changing with the seasons. Fresh local ingredients and local wine, too (Arrowhead Springs). Italian roots with modern flair. I never expected to find such fine fish in Western New York, but Carmelo has it! Not... More

When visiting the little town of Lewiston we talked with local store owner Chris, owner of Brewed and Bottled who highly recommended for dinner. Thank you Chris for recommending a great place for a wonderful dinner! Classic little Italian café that really stands out in a sea of Italian restaurants, it felt like dinning with family. Service was superb, while... More

Decided to go because of the reviews. We were not disappointed at all. Full bar with a nice selection of wines. We sat at bar for a drink prior to being seated. The staff are very friendly and attentive. The food is so delicious - menu changes with what is in season. So refreshing! Very cozy atmosphere. We enjoyed everything... More

My wife and I had dinner here during the Lewiston Jazz Festival. We made a reservation for around 8:15 (the earliest available), but decided to be a pain and showed up a half hour early. The hostess could not have been more gracious about trying to find us an early spot. Clearly it had a family atmosphere--really, everyone seemed to... More

The salads my wife and I had were amazing - the seasonal tomato salad and the gulf shrimp salad with corn. Fresh and delicious - tasted like summer, and perfectly seasoned/dressed. The pasta entrees (pasta made fresh in house) were also really good, although my wife's black pasta with clams was very salty for her tastes. My kids were very... More

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
