You know everything's good when you can't decide between a salad and a pasta.

It was a close call, but I ended up enjoying the carbanara pasta. Preceded by a crispy garlic bread served with wonderfully hot marinara sauce, and perfectly fried calamari. Wanted to go back for lunch for the salad, but the restaurant is only open for dinner and we were only in Carmel for a day... read more

I sat solo at the bar and had the Pasta with Mushrooms. It's a simple dish that was absolutely delicious and filling. The bartender offered helpful and pleasant service.

Had dinner with 5 girlfriends here on a Saturday nite. Walked from our motel at 5th & San Carlos. We are old friends getting together for a long weekend. The restaurant took reservations, did 'separate checks' (just ask, they were fine with it) and gave us great service and excellent food. Nice atmosphere. Quiet and we were able to talk... More

Our party chose The Vesuvio because we were due for an Italian dinner after a few days riding through California. Each of us ordered different entrees from the menu and all were pleased but not to the point of using exclamation points. What we did enjoy was the rooftop terrace. It is the perfect setting for a nightcap and we... More

Went for happy hour on the roof top and had a great time. The wine was great and the happy hour menu had some wonderful selections. The garlic bread is ample and delicious, the calamari was also enjoyable. Our favorite was the cheese and meat plate, great variety of tastes and very satisfying. It did get very crowded so if...

Very nice for dinner. We tried the happy hour but is was very crowded and hectic on the upstairs patio. Stick with the regular dinner in the main dining room and you won't be disappointed.

Food was good, service was good. Seating was crowded. We were sat besides a table of women that just kept talking loudly, even though there were tables further away that stayed empty.

We recently dined in this popular restaurant in the center of Carmel. Our request for a well-lighted table was well-accommodated at one of the bar tables which was excellent and comfortable. The menu was varied, and in addition to the main mussels and pasta dishes, we really enjoyed the Manila Clams to start the meal. Our waiter, Zack, was efficient... More

Recommended by our hotel, we had dinner here. Offered roof top but it was a bit chilly so opted for downstairs. Seating a bit cramped so you could hear everyone around you's conversation. Food great but overpriced. Large wine list - also overpriced. I have eaten Italian food of this quality much cheaper, maybe youre paying for location close to... More
