Old school Italian restaurant, great specials, I have the Veal Saltimbocca and it was excellent as were the green peppercorn filet my daughter got and the Veal Parm my wife ordered. Service was personal. Will visit again and again

Had lunch today. My first experience where a roach ran around the table! Food was good. Waiter was very apologetic but management never came to the table. We were given a mangled piece of delicious tiramisu with our take home leftovers but will think twice...More

My colleagues and I were driving from Dulles to Charlottesville and started to get worried that wouldn't get dinner. At 8:45 PM it was beginning to look like everything was closed. We'd flew all day from San Francisco and were getting hungry. A quick google...More

Stella, the owner kept open past 9:30 PM just to serve us (group of 3) because we had come from airport. The menu is far ranging, the food excellently prepared and the service outstanding. Considering the quality of the food, portion size and choices, the...More

My wife and I had dinner here on Saturday night and the food was very good and the service outstanding. The veal parmigiana and eggplant parmigiana were excellent, as well as the salads. Definitely would recommend this restaurant.

Went for lunch and was really amazed. They had the limoncello chicken and veal perfection. Even the butter had the special touch of sun-dried tomatoes and basil. A strictly Mom and Pop operation, this place used to be down across from the JPG and now...More

We had breakfast at Carmello's on a Sunday morning at around 07:45. They open very early! Friendly service and good food (wel presented). Reasonably priced. We moved from our initial table because of a funky sewerage water smell.

Tucked away in a strip mall, I was hoping for a bit of a hidden gem, but Carmello's is a bit outdated, possibly coasting on reputation? Although in my 40s, I was one of the younger diners at Carmellos and most of the menu catered...More
