We were lucky enough to be introduced to this restaurant by Groupon, and we would have been just as satisfied with the meal if we had paid full price. The service was excellent, and food was just as good. We went early, so were able to miss the Saturday night rush. We found the restaurant to be very comfortable, with a great view out the front window. In spite of our Groupon and the crowd that followed us there, we were not rushed through our meal. The server provided us with great advice about dishes, and we had nothing that disappointed. We will return to Carmello's and look forward to that meal also!

I had the veal parmesan sandwich that cAMe with a choice of fries or salad. The salad was beautiful crisp greens, tiny garbanzo beans & baby tomatoes. Others at table loved the brick oven margarita pizza and the Caesar salads. Desserts were another rave from the crème brulee to the gelato concoctions.

We have eaten at Carmello's several times before and enjoyed it. This time, not good. The wife and I had the veal parmesan -- it was over cooked, tough, edible but rather flat tasting -- was missing something. Full disclosure: This was at a free "presentation" dinner. Nonetheless, you'd think the restaurant would want to impress.

Carmello's has always been one of the top restaurants in Manassas. Food and service is always good. Good for a special occasion or visit their attached restaurant Monza for a quick meal. Make a reservation or go early though.

Carmello's has nightly specials that can't be missed. If there is a special, go for it. I have my normal favorites but I pull myself away and try what the chef has to offer and I am never disappointed. This is a local, family restaurant and it never disappoints.
