We ate at the Monza side of Carmello's restaurant in Manassas. Perhaps they are putting all of their effort and attention into the Carmello's side of the establishment, but the Monza side appears to need some additional practice. The food was OK but no one in our party of 6 left claiming they had a terrific meal. Some complained about... More

Carmello's is a charming restaurant in Old Town Manassas, Virginia. The atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming. the staff was attentive without being intrusive. I ordered the Paelha Valenciana, that was served in a sealed wok-like pan. Half a lobster, scallops, mussels, clams, chicken, and sausage in a fabulous saffron tomato rice. I have had Paela dozens of times and this... More

Finger licking good, I rated 4 stars cause my boyfriends steak was overlooked unfortunately but he also likes it really rare so no biggie. I would definitely... More

Carmello's shares a kitchen/building with Monza, so it is sometimes hard to determine which place you are really dining at. The menu is limited and a bit pretentous, but the food is good. The staff is a little uppity and annoying, so I don't dine here much. Give it a try if you want something a little upscale or you... More

Upon being seated we were offered complimentary champagne. What a great way to start our anniversary dinner, and the great service continued throughout our entire dining experience. Andre (I believe) was our waiter and his service couldn't have been any better. Although we were only one of 2 tables, he gave us just the right amount of service and space.... More

Was last in restaurant ten years ago - most enjoyable - met owner also! This time restaurant was very quiet and when hostess finally appeared she inquired if we had reservations. A couple just left and we were alone for 20 mins before a table arrived having a reservation for eight. Complimentary Proseco was nice. Chilled gazpacho generous, mild heat... More

Took a trip to Manassas because we heard some good things about this restaurant and because Portuguese food is not common in the area. In the "by the glass" category, there was a Portuguese Red and a White. We inquired about the red and discovered no more than "it is a blend". They were nice enough to let us try... More
