Cantinetta Luca serves up some nice Italian cuisine in the heart Carmel. Menu and beverage choices were very good. The only negative was the noise level, which made it very hard to enjoy a conversation. That seems to be the trend nowadays I guess!
Starting with treasured family recipes passed down through generations the menu specialties include a hearty selection of source verified premium meats, first hand selected then hand-cut on site, a wide array of anitipasti including house cured artisan salume, wood-oven baked pizza offered at lunch, housemade pastas and sauces, and whole roasted fish.
