“40th Wedding Anniversary Celebration”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

We recently held our 40th Anniversary Dinner and Vow Renewal at Carmello's. First, I would like to say that the three rooms they have available are all beautiful and we chose the Magalhaes Room. We decided to do a cocktail hour with appetizers, dinner, desserts, and open bar for the evening. We cannot say enough about the quality and superb taste of all the menu items. The miniature crab cakes, stuffed mushrooms, calamari fritti, and bruschetta served at the cocktail hour were outstanding. We had four dinner menu items (including a vegetarian entree) for our guests to choose from and all were very pleased. I must say the Vieieras and the Filet Mignon were the favorites. The Manager Miquel and Banquet Coordinator Jackie were very pleasant and worked very hard to make this an outstanding celebration. No matter what occasion you are planning it is definitely worth a call to Miquel or Jackie and see what Carmello's has to offer you. I don't think you will be disappointed.

Lovely atmosphere, old school service. The food is delicious and the service is wonderful. I would go more often but save it for "special occasions.

“The place for Portuguese in the DC Area!”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

If you are looking for exceptional Portuguese cuisine and the largest selection of Portuguese wines in the country, then you are going to love Carmello's! Set in Old Town Manassas, Carmello's has been run by Elise, a Portuguese native, since 1992. This is not our first trip to Carmello's, but with a trip to Portugal on the horizon, my wife and I went to sample some Portuguese dishes and wine. We were very pleased with the entire evening. Elise was even kind enough to come over the the table and share some of her ideas on our Portugal vacation. Great ambience, great food, and a great wine list!

“Very Good Portuguese & Italian Dining”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

We selected Portuguese Dishes which were great. The wine list is quite extensive, however they did not have the wine we selected from the list. On a great note, the manager recommended a substitue at the same price which was outstanding.
