This is a home run. The food is some of the best in Carmel. Attention to every detail makes it a must return spot. Good place for couples dining.

We had starter, main and desserts at this restaurant which were all very tasty. The burrata and beet salad was good as was the tagliatelle. However the portions were quiet small, esp for the price. Atmosphere and setting were lovely and it’s a great location.
