Best Italian in Houston and Austin | Carmelo’s Italian Restaurant


Since 1981 Carmelo’s Ristorante Italiano has been one of the top Italian restaurants in Texas, with locations in Houston (near the Energy Corridor) and Austin (conveniently downtown).

At both locations, we offer the extraordinary Italian food we are known for plus a wide selection of traditional meat, seafood, and pasta dishes, as well as creating modern versions with vegetarian and vegan, and gluten-free options. Carmelo’s features a full bar that offers a selection of Italian beers and liquors, along with an extensive wine collection consistently recognized with the “Wine Spectator Award of Excellence.”

Carmelo’s is perfect for your lunch business meeting, family dinner, a casual group of friends, or for private events and celebrations in one of several private dining rooms accommodating up to 140 guests.

Visit us today and see what sets us apart as the top Italian restaurant in both Houston and Austin.
