“Great food, service, & environment.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

We had no reservations. We were seated quickly after observing the rooftop patio. Folks looked like they were enjoying themselves up there. Receptionists and waiter were friendly and attentive. The food was prepared as we would expect.

“Nice and sympathetic Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Monterey is foggy and cold at Summer nights. Perfect place to eat a Pizza and drink ice wine.
Atmosphere is warming and dark.

“Nice place”

We had a great time at this restaurant! The view from the roof top lounge was lovely. The service here was great and happy hour prices were good.

“Food so-so, drinks terrible”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

This place was recommended to us however, the drinks were so bad we had to ask for replacements (which is something I never do!). Second drinks were completely un-drinkable but we didn't exchange them a 2nd time. Ordered the specials (Halibut) but the fish was dry and the sides were just ok. All in all not a good experience for a pricing (over $100) dinner for two.

“Up on the Roof”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Great secret Happy Hour 4:00-6:00 with $5.00-$6.00 wines & appetizers on the rooftop of the restaurant. Comfy outdoor couches for a relaxed atmosphere. A little disconnect on why Bob Marley music was playing as if trying to create a Jamaican feel instead of beautiful Carmel.
