Terrific overall experience with delectable food, pleasant service, and overwhelming wine list. Knowledgeable sommelier listened to us and provided a perfect recommendation, and even gave us a tour of the unforgettable wine cellar. Restaurant was crowded, loud, and busy which on a Saturday night, we expected and considered part of the atmosphere. Unfortunately, we walked-in without a reservation and were... More

Highly recommended but disappointing considering the price. The food was very good pasta and the appetizer beet salad was good by anyone's standards. However, we had been told it was the best restaurant in Carmel and we actually canceled a reservation elsewhere to go there. We just didn't feel the price was justified considering that the meal was very good... More

If not for the late hour, the fact that we were starving, and the lack of open restaurants, we would have walked out. They had foie gras on the menu that night. I am appalled that, in the progressive state of California, any restaurant would serve foie gras. For any foodie that is environmentally and socially conscious, this is a... More

Went for a romantic lunch while on our honeymoon in Carmel. The food was incredible, like your European grandmother might have made. The atmosphere is amazing, especially if you can dine in the courtyard. The price for lunch was a little high compared to a regular sandwich spot, but then again this is Carmel and this is no sandwich spot.... More

This was one of my favorite lunches. I loved the beet salad. It was a pretty day and we ate outside on the patio. it was just lovely. The wait staff was very nice and the food was just right.

My husband and I had a table outside with our three dogs. The restaurant has such a quaint and cosy charm to it. The food is classically tasteful and speaks for itself. We had the lamb and it was perfect. Our waiter was delightful and we enjoyed it thoroughly. I would definitely return!

We stopped in for lunch after being recommended from a retailer on Ocean. We sat outside and the atmosphere was nice. Wife had the shrimp & mussels linguini. I actually ordered a Cheeseburger!!!!! Both were prepared perfectly. The Resturant is built around a tree that they left in place and grows through the roof.

This restaurant came highly recommended. The place itself was very pretty, with a series of rooms,leading in to one another, and small side rooms. We were seated, and we pretty much knew what we wanted, as we had read the menu online. Interestingly, there were no "specials". This could have been because we were there on Pebble Beach week, and... More

Voted one of the most romantic restaurants! It's like a little Italy. Nice choice of wines. Service very good.
