The Carmela’s team and I want to thank you for your continued support and patronage.  As always, the health and safety of our guests and team is our top priority. We remain committed to offering authentic Italian food in a friendly, family type atmosphere and we are living that commitment more than ever in these uncertain times.Carmela’s at The Loft will remain open for business during our normal operating hours unless we are instructed otherwise by governing agencies.  We recognize this is a time of considerable concern and none of us know exactly what to expect in the weeks ahead.  While we understand and support the need for social distancing, we also recognize those of you who are well may wish to venture out.  The Carmela’s team welcomes you and offers relaxation and respite while enjoying a delicious meal during this time of uncertainty.  It will be our privilege to serve you.  If you prefer to take extra precautions and not dine in a public setting, we encourage you to take advantage of our online ordering.  Carmela’s at The Loft has an ON & OFF premise beer and wine license and offer our full menu along with deli meats and cheeses available to-go.If you would like to place an order for pick up, you may do so by visiting  or by calling us at 434-237-2522.  We will be more than happy to offer curb side pickup if you so desire.                     We are monitoring this evolving situation very closely and following recommendations from CDC, FDA, VDH, and local officials to ensure we’re doing all we can to keep our guests, employees and food safe. This includes heightening our existing industry-leading procedures and protocols. Presently, the transmission of COVID-19 has not been linked to food or food packaging by the USDA or the FDA.I am a believer in the good Lord and in mankind.  Keep your faith and look out for your friends and neighbors.  We will make it through this crisis and I’m confident we will emerge as a stronger community. Thank you for patience and partnership during this situation.  Most of all, I thank you for your support and love of Carmela’s at The Loft.  May God bless you all!Stay safe and hope to see you soon!
