When you are looking to woo that special someone head to Carmelo’s Ristorante Italiano for some of the most exquisite Italian dishes in the city. Carmelo’s has been satisfying hungry couples for more than 20 years now with their succulent dishes. Savour homemade pastas, wood burning pizzas, and hearty appetizers in an unforgettable setting that screams romance.
Carmelo’s daily specials menu makes dining out always a culinary adventure. You never know what the chef will whip up that day depending on what is in season. On the appetizer menu, discover tender slices of seasoned beef tenderloin and calamari drizzled with spicy tomato sauce. For some of the best baked mussels around you’ve come to the right place. This gem’s mussels taste divine thanks to savoury butter, chunks of garlic and loads of paprika and parmesan cheese. A visit to Carmelo’s wouldn’t be complete without sharing an authentic wood burning pizza topped with gourmet ingredients. Enjoy your pizza pie loaded with red peppers, pesto, roasted chicken breast…and the list continues.
Homemade pastas drizzled with delicately prepared sauces take centre stage here. A must try is the pasta topped with chunks of fresh pan seared salmon and drizzled with delectable pesto cream sauce. Carnivorous diners are also in luck here thanks to a small but selective selection of meat delicacies cooked to perfection. Tender rack of lamb served with a mint demi glaze is out of this world. Same with the beef tenderloins smothered in peppercorn and cognac. A handful of veal dishes topped with goat cheese, artichokes, and wild mushrooms complete a fantastic menu.
