Had dinner with a group and we were all very pleased. The sirloin steak I had was done to perfection. All in my group were quite pleased. A solid choice for anyone looking for a fine meal in the Manassas area.

Don't expect Good food here and if you try it expect a minimal $100 a couple for diner style food. Actually the Manassas Diner is Much better food. If you want to hide from someone it is very quiet and they probably would never look for you there. Service poor, Atmosphere is small and tight, but ok.

We shared the mesclun salad--it was very nice--wish they had split it in the kitchen. My wife had the duron pork shank--very tender and flavorful. I had the gnocchi. The ragu was excellent, but the gnocchi were fried--I don't recall that the menu said that and I don't care for fried gnocchi. I'm all-Italian heritage, and it's just not to... More

What a great dining experience. Prompt service and delicious food. Lamb Meatball Fettuccine was excellent. The Pork Shank with vegetables was also quite good. Dined with my wife and her uncle.

I met up with some friends at Carmello's on Saturday, Oct 18. The complimentary glass of champagne served as soon as we were seated was a nice touch. The restaurant now has seasonal menus and therefore does not offer specials. It is not typically Italian. I started with a butternut squash soup that was delicious, and did not need the... More

Not at all sure why some of the 1-2 star reviews. We have lived in Manassas for over 30 years and have watched the evolution of Carmellos. While it has always been good and our 'go-to' place for special occasions, Christmas Eve and friends get-togethers, the 'new' Carmellos (post renovation) just continues to get better and better. Went last week... More

Reservations for seven at 7:30 on a Saturday night were set. Seated with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine...nice touch. Nothing on the Menu was meat free and three of us are vegetarians...but this is an "Italian inspired" place so one would not think it would be hard to order pasta and a salad. Long story short...after asking what we... More

We recently took an out of town guest to Carmello's and were very concerned that he would like the food as he is extremely picky!! The gracious server quickly found that he was a vegetarian and suggested several dishes that could be made especially for him. He chose several including the chopped salad whIch he said was EXCELLENT!! Kyle, the... More
