Tried to have a meal here, but the customer service was so atrocious I have nothing good to say. Not only was the staff rude and unhelpful, he made a point of being obnoxious in front of other patrons. If I had not had my children with me, I would have made a scene, as it was, I bit my tongue and walked out.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 20, 2011 My Rating for Cantinetta Luca is OUTSTANDING! We were in town for the Pebble Beach Concours and always make a point to spend the day before in Carmel. We stopped at Cantinetta Luca for Lunch by complete chance. We were greeted immediately and were seated at the window which gave us a great view of the street and the many classic cars in town that day. Our Server was Rodrigo. We ordered our Luncheon in progressive courses that my wife and I could share. Rodrigo and his helpers did an absolutely perfect job in timing the delivery of every course. Our meal included, Prosciutto (excellent) and the warmed Olives (amplifies the flavors) as an Anitipasto starter accompanied by an incredible Chard from the Piedmonte, followed by a Wild Arugula Salad with Roasted Beets and a Caprese, with the main course a shared Mezzanini pasta with summer squash and pesto. We topped this off with a Tiramisu (made on-site) and a Limoncello (made on-site). When we arrived the Lunch crowd was just beginning, as we dined the restaurant filled to capacity. This is a time when service often becomes strained as servers try to keep up with the crowd. Rodrigo and team managed the crowd and our meal finished with the same level of high quality service at full capacity as we experienced when we first arrived. This was by far the best food and the best service of our entire trip. I visit many highly rated spots that I never return to again. I will be back again as often as I am in town.

Nice and confort italian restaurant. Very special "burrata" appetizer...try it! Not many options for the main course but all of them carefully prepared. Quite expensive.
