Excellent Italian, slightly inflated prices

We really enjoyed our dinner here. I've always loved Italian food, but never dined here until we saw a TV show featuring a couple of dishes. The service was top-notch. No bar, but they were able to bring me a decent tequila cocktail somehow. The large dining room was crowded and loud, so be... read more

Another tiny restaurant in Carmel, the staff is wonderful, helpful and pleasant. The food is Great. The only downside is the food is cooked elsewhere and then brought in and micro-waved; sometimes too hot and maybe a little over-cooked. I still enjoy it, tho!

We stumbled across this place on our road trip, what a great find. Lovely atmosphere, large tables, kid friendly. Lots of touches to Italy. Now for the food! Try the garlic bread to start, very special; as were all the dishes, special mention on the truffle Gnocchi. Desserts looked pretty and were tasty too. Long wine list, had to leave... More

We had a party of 8 with our pets. Everyone within our party enjoyed their meal. I loved my Meatball sandwich probably the best I had. Chef Pepe is very creative with his sauces and choice of ingredients. One member of our party had the smoke salmon salad that was just amazing. We will definitely return!

We revisited this restaurant after about 10 years and still enjoyed it. Service was good and although it was very busy, we were not rushed. Made our reservation about a week in advance and still could not get our first choice of time. It is very popular especially with the international tourists. My husband had the eggplant Parmesan which was... More

Have been there many times, but not in recent past....their menu has changed slightly and my favorite dish was no longer on it, so had to explore....had a chicken piccata with garlic pasta noodles on the side that was DELICIOUS and large enough for me to take home and have another complete meal....it is not inexpensive though....my husband and grand-daughter...

First time in Carmel. Visiting from Michigan. Looked up Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives restaurants in the area and this one popped up. We had a short wait but not long and it was truly worth it. Very quaint place, much like the other establishments in this cute town. Husband had a short rib dish, daughter had an eggplant lasagna, and... More

Osso Bucco Ravioli sauce was the best ever. Garlic bread is very light and crusty, not the heavy butter and garlic most are. Pasta is fabulous. Portion size was good. Price was higher than posted on their website. Restaurant was warm, loud and service is ho-hum. Seated promptly at reservation time, but the couple seated next to us came in... More
