Had a meal with family here. The food was good but the place looks tired and grotty in places. Also overall cleanliness could be a lot better. On entering the place looks old, grotty and tired. The restaurant is quite pleasant but witnessed things that should not be happening. An elderly waiter was cleaning forks with his fingers before setting... More

Used to eat at Carmelo's fairly frequently before I had a family. We revisited the restaurant recently and I am sad to report it needs a lot doing - from the worn, ripped sofas in the waiting area, to the greasy surfaces of the tables, food embedded into the fabric of the chairs, dirty cutlery and poor quality toilet facilities...

We visited on a Sunday evening at 7:30pm, and I wasn't sure what to expect. First impressions weren't great - there was a letter missing from the name of the restaurant on the outside, rebranding it "Armelo's" - never a good sign. Walking in the bar area looked a little cramped and not particularly welcoming either. However, once we were... More

We have visited Carmelo's many times and have never been disappointed. The service has always been great, there's always a warm welcome and the interaction between staff and customers is fantastic. Have i had better Italian food? probably when I've visited Italy, but for a good meal, good hospitality and value for money I recommend Carmelo's over many other Italian... More

We came here on a Monday at around 7pm and no one else was in! That's always a bad sign and no one else came in while we were there till it closed. The waiter and other staff were nice enough but the food was so bland and I really could have made better myself. Also there are loads of... More

We visited on Friday night and have to say that the food was very disappointing - pizza was so greasy it was inedible and starter wasn't great either. Service was good though and a nice atmosphere but won't be visiting any time soon, sorry!
