Description: If you like being nestled among towering pines while enjoying Carmel ocean views and spectacular sunsets, or dining at romantic tables in cliffside Mediterranean cafes, da Giovanni is your place. Firok Shield and his restaurant family operate this Carmel restaurant with careful attention to detail and a love of hospitality, offering a fusion of recipes handed down from his grandmother, such as Insalata Greca or Osso Buco. It's no wonder da Giovanni is one of the most highly recommended.

The very best restaurant we have been to in a long time. The service is family friendly...impeccable. The wine recommendations paring with the Seafood Linguine Scarpesce and Tiramisu dessert were outstanding.

I've been to Carmel many times, but had never tried this hidden gem. Be sure to make reservations and get directions for it was a little hard to find. The food was excellent and the service was friendly and attentive. The restaurant was small, but the atmosphere was pleasant. We will definitely be back.

We had a group of 40 of us that dined a little late, so they cleared the restaurant of regulars early and we had the place to ourselves. The service was great and the food very good for serving a crowd of this size all at once. Delightful experience. The owner and staff did a wonderful job!
