If you are looking for a really good authentic pizza, a good Philly cheese steak (my favorite in the metro Richmond area), this Candela's is the place. There is another Candela's on Midlothian turnpike (different family member owns it), but not as good. The Huguenot location makes their own flat bread and other location buys it. Big difference! Not a... More

I have had a few items other than pizza and they have been just average. I think their sauce is a little sweet. but the pizza is really good. Lots of choices for toppings too. WE usually get it to go as the ambiance in the restaurant leaves a little to be desired for us. It is frequented by families... More

This restaurant serves Italian/Greek food with sandwiches and pizza. It wasn't very busy when we were there on a Sunday. Service was okay and we were allowed to visit with friends in a side room. Nothing special about their food. Pizza was wet with thin crust.

Wife and I discovered Candela's six months ago. We do lunch about once a week on Tuesday, which is our Grocery Shopping Day. We generally split a 12-inch Steak Special or Chicken Steak Special with Fries. Food is always served piping hot. Fries are the among the Best in Town, and the Subs are to Die For. The Subs are...

Candella's isn't anything fancy but they have great food that isn't super pricey. It's a great place to grab a pizza with the family or to get take out. They also offer their subs on a flatbread which is amazing! Plus, they have a small game room with a few claw machines and some bubble gum machines that kids love.... More

These folks know how to do pizza for crowds. The pastas are good, too. Not fancy, but great if you have elementary or teen aged kids.

I went with about 10 other people to Candela's on Sunday night for a post concert dinner. This is a modest place, a true pizzeria. We were seated in the back room at 2 large tables. The wait staff was quick to take drink orders. There is a lot to order so we took some time with the menus. We... More

Three adults went for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. They were not busy and we were seated and given menus right away. Seating is tables and booths. They have a separate area that can be used for large groups. The menu has a large variety of Italian dishes including pizza, pastas, salads, soups and sandwiches. Most popular Italian dishes are...

Got the 12 inch chicken and mushrooms steak and cheese. Ordered it when I walked did not have to wait long and it was ready. Got back to work and still hot, have not had anything I do not like from here and a great price.
