We happened across Carmela's whilst looking for somewhere to eat. When we looked at the menu we were immediately tempted as there was plenty to choose from. But the smell of garlic wafting out was what won us over and we were really pleased we'd...More

Fish stew was lovely and identical to what I've had in Italy. Servers were lovely and made room for us to bring our son in his pram so he could sleep while we ate.

We had originally booked into another Italian in Horsham but upon arrival, their service was awful so we walked out. Searching for a place to eat, on a Saturday night in Horsham without a booking isn’t easy, but we came across Carmela. It looks stunning...More

One of the oldest building home of Carmela Restaurant , with our roots in the fashionable area of Horsham, a once guest house of Henry 7th ; there is an air of ambient charm as both staff and clientele creates a warm and stylish vibe to the day’s dining experience. Carmela has been serving excellent mediterranean food as fresh as possible, in the most unpretentious and honest ways since 2007 and continues to do so today. The menu is resolutely modern, we insist on sourcing from authentic Italian produce from our suppliers based in various regions of Italy. Our philosophy is simplicity, passion, and recognition.
