The food and service were great. I’ve been coming here for years and have to applaud the staff for all there efforts to accommodate diners as we move through this pandemic. It’s just lovely to go to a familiar place and enjoy and enjoy the evening. Outdoor seating was warm and comfortable.
Pizza was good. Butternut squash raviol were overly sweet. Waiter wasn’t that friendly
Just amazing. A must go. Great wine list. Thoughtfully prepared food. Lovey service and COVID protections.
Some of the best authentic Italian food I’ve ever had!!
Spent my birthday dinner here with my family. The food is incredibly delicious. The pasta and pizza is done tremendously well. The wine is very tasty also. The service was excellent. They did run out of dessert and weren’t able to give me any for my birthday but that’s okay; would come again and very highly recommend!
As always, we had an outstanding meal at Cantinetta Luca. They had a good solution for seating. Given that we had to sit outside due to Coronavirus, we dressed warm and with the heaters, were quite comfortable. The service was attentive and great. The food was fabulous, as we have always had. Highly recommend.
Wow, what an amazing restaurant. The food, the service, all top notch. While it was a chilly evening, they have heat lamps and plastic coverings to protect from the wind. I would highly suggest checking this place out.
Our waiter was great - all his recommendations were excellent including a great wine. Food was very good from start to finish. A little weird having people walk by you on the sidewalk all evening, but that's the new normal.
I was surprised and disappointed to find out that the meal would not earn me any Open Table points. Am still waiting to find out why.
Excellent spot for a date night; food was outstanding!
Had a great meal- loved the warm olives and Focaccia to start. Cocktails were ok, they all leaned a touch sweet for us. The butternut squash carpaccio was so good and unique. For main course we had the swordfish stew and Tagliatelle Bolognese Both were incredible. Such a lovely meal. Hardest part was seating- we were right next to the posted menu and host stand on the sidewalk. It was really uncomfortable having so many people come that close to us while we were eating (every 10 minutes someone approached). Standing right above my husband. They need to move those away from tables. Especially right now.
One of our FAVORITE restaurants. Excellent food, service, and consistent every time. My wife and I love coming here!
Skeptical about C Luca-Carmel when they make you prepay for your reservation on Saturday evening during covid; a little pretentious I thought, and they seat you outside on the sidewalk patio with people walking by. However I have to say the food and service was outstanding, and I was comfortable on a beautiful evening in Carmel. Started with splitting an eggplant parm bake with fresh warm focaccia bread just out of the oven. I had the Branzino and my wife the sauteed scallops. Paired with a wonderful Terlan from Alto Adige was spectacular. The Branzino was fresh grilled/baked, well seasoned with herbs and was so moist and tender over a pepper and onion tomato broth/sauce that was delicious, and so ready to sop up with the fresh focaccia. Scallops equally delicious, well prepared, scrumptious. Finished with a tiramisu, espresso and a grappa, a wonderful finish to the evening. If you get the chance to make it here, please do the food and service was Very Good. A little pricey, but I don't mind paying a premium when the food served is this GOOD. Salute amici miei alla Cantinetta Luca!
A perfect evening with delicious food and attentive service. Will come back!
Excellent food and service even in these covid times!
Are go to whenever we are in Carmel. The pizzas are great! The branzino when they do have it is delicious. Their homemade pastas are really amazing as well. We love their tapenade there as well. Whenever they have it we buy some to take home.
Good food, knowledgeable waiter, good service. Nice outside seating.
Enjoyed the ambience, the home made pasta was amazing and the wine list perfect!
Fantastic service and delicious neapolitan food. Our server Mario gave us special attention on our anniversary. Amazing freshly baked breads. Might go twice during our stay in Carmel!
Our favorite place...we eat here every time we are in Carmel
Delicious cuisine & tasty cocktails! Really appreciated the complementary champagne. Very nice touch to an already exceptional dining experience.
It was my boyfriend's 40th birthday, and it was a fantastic dinner. The food is absolutely outstanding, and they have made the ambiance as nice as they can since we can't be indoors. They also sent out an amazing dessert as a surprise at the end of dinner for his birthday. We will definitely be back!
Outstanding experience overall. Two of us had pasta and one had the rib steak - all were delicious. Good value on the Super Tuscan as well. Great service. We’ll go back!
Amazing food and great service!
Authentic Italian food!
Outdoor dining only so the ambiance suffered, but they still did a nice job with seating. The food was excellent: branzino was fantastic as was the flatbread. Tiramisu and espresso were both delicious.
The chef produces extraordinarily imaginative, innovative, and delicious dishes.
Waiter forgot to put on half the order.
They were over attentive. I think they were pushy. Food was mediocre.
Highly recommend the burrata starter and the Whole Branzino for dinner! Delicious
Everyone had to eat outside because of Covid, but they did a great job with ambiance outside. The food was outstanding, the service excellent. The entire experience was wonderful.
Thank you for making our anniversary fantastic!!!!
The service was efficient and our waiter was friendly and helpful with our questions. The drinks were well balanced and delicious. Our food was also delicious, the right temperature, and served together (table of 4). Luca is doing a great job with outdoor dining. Bathroom was accessible. Do not miss the restaurant if you are in Carmel!
So glad they are doing outdoor dining, but their inside is so enticing to come into. Can't wait to come again (and again) and dine inside. Service was great, and the proprietor came out and talked with us a couple of times. Food wonderful and great wine selection and suggestions.
Outstanding meal... simply the best steak I've ever had. Everything from cocktails to the dessert was fantastic and the service was excellent. I asked our server for his choice between a couple of wines I was interested in and refreshingly, he recommended the lower priced of the two... not something many do. Luca has always been one of the best places in town but I'm going back just to see if that Bistecca alla Fiorentina was an anomaly, or if it's consistently that good.
We arrived and they wouldn’t seat us. Claimed that despite a reservation, they didn’t have room. It really put us in a bind as every other restaurant had an hour wait and it was 9 pm :(
Food was fantastc, owner recommended food which was delicious, waiter was wonderfull, in all it was a great experience.
Service was top notch, food was delicious and atmosphere was lovely!
Lovely service, excellent food
I miss the inside ambiance, but dinner was great outside too! Highly recommend!
Very approachable and fantastic food.
