“Very good and affordable italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Everything is in the title. This restaurant is both affordable (this is rare in Carmel) and very good. Portions are very big. You can do one order of garlic bread for four. Everything was very good except the tiramisu. It was not bas but had nothing exceptional.

“The Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Does not dissapoint. Very good southern Italian food in the heart of Carmel by the Sea. Try the Osso Bucco.

“Classy Italian with a great buzz”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

Food was very good, we enjoyed the 'jackie O vodka' pasta, and the chicken parmigiana ! Bought really tasty but we couldn't finish portions!
We had 'famous garlic bread' ... But it was the least like garlic bread we'd ever had, think just lightly toasted bread with tomato sauce... Where's the garlic butter??
The house white wine only ok, but maybe we had tasted so many gorgeous wines already our palate was done! The service was great for us but I could see around us for bigger tables there was delays and people getting annoyed. We found the 2 girls looking after us very efficient though.
All in all, with the movie like atmosphere and warm welcome, we enjoyed a lovely Italian in
Carmel!

“Great dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Had dinner with 3 other couples and had wine and full Italian dinner. They have an exceptional wine list with all prices. I was most impressed with my chicken parmesan, not thin thus was very tender, baked just right. Wait staff was attentive but table was right by the fireplace so everyone was really packed in around our table. Get reservation as this is a popular place.

“Great food in Carmel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Managed to get a table for two tonight - though it looks like you need to book for bigger parties. Great food - service a bit slow but we didn't mind. Would highly recommend or an authenic Italian feel
