We had the pleasure of dining here twice during our stay in Carmel. The first day we had the lamb shank and chicken Vesuvio, both excellent dishes. At our next visit we all had pizzas and do not hesitate to recommend it to others. It should also be mentioned that the service is efficient and friendly.

This is a very popular local restaurant with local and tourist following. The owner has another Italian restaurant in Carmel. Both are consistently ok without much creativity or local creativity. The Happy Hour is a good deal, the dining less so.

We come to Carmel every other month, and this is one of our favorites. Pizza is great; it's fun to eat in the bar when you don't have reservations. The bartender is great, and although several times there has been some confusion about who our server was, they always made it right.

Vesuvio is better than average but not very good. Carmel has many, many Italian restaurants, and this is another. They need to do more to distinguish themselves.
Pizza pretty good and so was the wild boar pasta. Very fun and busy roof deck for drinks. Certainly not easy on the wallet

We just stopped in for drinks. Headed up to the rooftop bar. Nice crowd, fire pit, great bartenders, heading back again as soon as we can. Sister restaurant in Carmel (I believe) is Little Napoli. Had dinner there several times, if food is as good, I will be back!
