Downtown's palace of Italian cuisine

When the restaurant boasts recognition by the Italian government for "the preparation of authentic Italian cuisine," it's easy to believe Carmelo's commitment to being the best Italian restaurant you've ever been to. The historic Depot Hotel's layered stone walls, gorgeous outdoor patio, contemporary artwork, and candle-heavy lighting set the stage for a romantic evening accompanied by Italy's favorite foods. The menu is all in Italian, but your server will be happy to help you pronounce it. Of course, their steak dishes like Bistecca Diana are a delicious failsafe choice for Texas diners unable to pronounce the Italian items on the menu. Don't be surprised to find you're one of only a handful of tables in the entire building being served, but this somehow adds to the intimacy of the experience.
