Description: 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.

We had visited the Deli linked to this restaurant and thought we would try it. It was very good indeed. An extensive menu: I had grilled swordfish with orange and fennel salad.

It was busy and the only free table was outside but it was a sunny day and we enjoyed some spring sunshine. The diners around us all seemed to know the staff, who were very friendly, and I imagine this place gets plenty of regular customers - as it should.

We will certainly come back.

What a lovely find! Superb, traditional Sicilian fare and excellent value. We had the antipasto plate, which was served with a very generous portion of buffalo mozzarella, the calamare and the octopus salad to start. All were excellent but the best was yet to come. The rigatoni with Sicilian sausage in a light gorgonzola sauce was simply delicious and the lamb was possibly the tastiest I have ever sampled - it was that good. I will be back!

Wonderful lunch. My good lady had the seafood risotto whilst I had the Calves Liver on chard with a reduction of red wine and balsamic. Absolutely delicious. With a fabulous bottle of Sicilian red made from semi dried grapes at £24. worth every penny.

Amazing food, great presentation and stunning host. Horshams little jem. Ideal place for lunch or early dinner on the patio.
