My man had the trout and loved every bite of it! The chicken pesto sandwich was also good but his meal looked better.

Got there early and enjoyed some excellent house made pasta and delightful service. Great weather was made even better when sitting atop and looking down the streets of lovely Carmel By-The-Sea!

Piza was recommended here, but it was a weak pie with little pizaz. Just a step above frozen, very dissapointing. We also had a pasta dish, nothing special and short on size. The guiter player was very good.

Every time my friend and I went to this restaurant (which was every sunday) the owner took excellent care us. The food especially the tortellini is delicious. I can also never get enough of the sauce the bread is served with. Even the desserts are almost too good to be real. Every time I brought a group of friends here they had only good things to say.

I love this restaurant but apparently someone had a really a really bad experience just recently. I guess that can happen on a bad day in any restaurant but so far I have had nothing but good experiences there. The small outdoor terrace overlooking San Carlos street is delightful and I think they the food is great. The inside is quiet and intimate unlike some of the other Italian restaurants in Carmel and that is why my wife and I like this restaurant so much.
