We had visited Carmela with some friends a few weeks ago and when we left, we were handed a ribbon tied menu for Valentines night. We promptly booked. The evening was lovely. They were very busy but the service and food were great.

Had a lovely meal. Food was delicious. The service was very friendly and efficient. The children were welcomed and really enjoyed their food. Good selection for vegetarians. The chocolate chip ice cream was great. A thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing meal.

My girlfriend and I visited to celebrate Valentines Day. The staff were welcoming and friendly, and our waiter remembered us from our last visit, a lovely touch. A special menu was in place for the day, and as usual, the food was flawless. Simply put, we cannot recommend Carmela's highly enough.

We went there to have our Sunday lunch. The waiters were very friendly and we felt very welcome. The food was superb, I had a very nice parmigiana which i am still dreaming about:) The interior is very cosy and warm, food is very delicious. Definitely one of the best places in Horsham:)

I have been to loads of Italian restaurants, but this was my first visit to a Sicilian restaurant. I didn't notice much difference in the menu, but the food was good quality and the staff attentive and friendly. If you are looking for an Italian type meal and want something a bit better and more personal than a typical chain,... More
