This is primarily a fish restaurant so can be enjoyed as such - portions were generous and fish looked very fresh.

I'm vegetarian but found a creamy pasta dish which was pleasant enough.

Service was very good. Attentive and helpful. You could tell this was a local favourite and the place looked like it was run like a family dining room. Lots of groups enjoying lots of food.

If you love fish you should definitely visit.. a taste of local dishes alway from the main area.

Note this restaurant is situated on top of a hill, so although you can get there by foot from the coast, it is a walk up quite a few steps with little to look at! A taxi is strongly recommended

We had our Christmas dinner at Carmelo's.

Although the location is really shining in daylight, you can feel and breathe the sea fresh air on the small hill of Sant'Ilario and you can park without the usual town-related hassle.

There is plenty of room for tables and seats, but above all the food is gorgeous. We all were very very satisfied by the quality and quantity of food: from starters to cakes and ice-creams. The dinner was centered on fish and I haven't yet found a better place to eat fish!

I can wholeheartedly advise to visit it!

Address of the restaurant, we found the navigator, choose something that you liked the name)
We drove up to restaurant  and sow simple two windows and doors all closed,  decided that the restaurant is closed, what was our surprise when we saw the room where  was no free space, all the tables were full of seafood, pasta, sitting at the table just Italians apparently gathered for dinner.
Yes interior is very simple restaurant,  only one waitress knew a few words in English, but this one of the best limoncello mussels and pasta we ate a very long time! 
People around  looked at us a bit since we were the only foreigners in the audience, and also because we ordered just two courses of food not  like every one in the restaurant .
Advise everyone to visit!!
