The Charlottesville 29

If there were just 29 restaurants in Charlottesville, what would be the ideal 29?

A Culture of Takeout: Charlottesville Restaurant Dining at Home


A big part of what makes our area special, Charlottesville’s restaurants are on the brink. To help them survive, our restaurants invite Charlottesville to embrace a culture of takeout. Through their remarkable ingenuity during the pandemic, Charlottesville restaurants have shown how desperately they want to serve us. It is up to us to give them that chance. Restaurants need us. And, we need them. As often as we can, let’s brighten our lives of seclusion with a restaurant meal. 

This list will be updated with changes and additions. Also included are restaurants offering on-premises dining. Send updates or additions to Tip generously!

Pronto! Offers Free Meals for All School Children


For some, no school means no lunch. Pronto!, the fresh pasta restaurant on The Corner, is offering free meals for all school-aged children. This is an extraordinary gesture at a time when COVID-19 is devastating restaurants’ revenues. A statement from Pronto! co-owner Daniel Kaufman: 

Due to the local school closures, as well as our massive slowdown in business, we have decided to offer a free meal to any school-aged child needing one until further notice. We have food, they need food, it’s a no-brainer. Come on in anytime, no questions asked. Please note our hours may vary from those posted. Feel free to call ahead to ensure we are open. 434-202-7638.

Taking Care: Charlottesville Restaurants Halt Onsite Service


Below is a message from Charlottesville restaurants. Additional signatories will be added as they are confirmed. Many of the restaurants below are creating takeout programs. See takeout options here.


We are deeply saddened to announce that, due to the threat posed by COVID-19, we are  halting on-site service at our restaurants. For some of us, this will mean temporary closures, while for others it will mean shifting to a model of solely takeout or delivery.

This decision is heart-breaking. We all entered this industry because of our passion to care for people. The change in operations will prevent us from caring for our guests and staff in the same manner that we have always enjoyed. But, for the time being, we have come to realize that the best way for us to care for people is to reduce the temptation for them to congregate, and thereby slow the spread of a virus that threatens our community.

Our hope is that circumstances will soon allow us to resume normal operations without the risk of spreading a pandemic. When that time comes, rest assured that we will return as passionate as ever to serve you.

Be safe.
