Forget about traversing the Atlantic; you can find an authentic blend of Italy and Portugal here in Old Town Manassas. With today's deal from Carmello's, give your standard dining routine the boot when you pay $35 dinner for two (a $70 value). You'll get a choice of two appetizers, soups, or salads; two entrées; and two desserts from a pre-set menu. Appetizers include bruschetta, mushroom caps, and a spinach salad. Then move on to entrées like a succulent veal tenderloin wrapped in bacon; homemade spinach-and-ricotta stuffed ravioli; a pork shank in rosemary demi glaze; or a traditional Portuguese recipe of pork cooked with clams, potatoes, garlic, and cilantro in a white wine sauce. End your meal with a mixed sorbet, fresh berries, creme brulee, or mascarpone cheese with a strawberry puree. This spot has been around for more than 20 years, and owner Alice Pires has created a space where dishes from her home in Portugal are perfectly paired with traditional and satisfying Italian cuisine. With dim lighting, white tablecloths, and exposed brick, this cozy space is the perfect destination for your next culinary adventure.
