"Went here with group of 5 girls. Was able to make reservation just the day before. Food was amazing. We were passing dishes around so we could each taste. Loved it all! Dessert and wine great too. Would highly recommend. Service good too."

"We dined at Restaurant Luca in Carmel on Monday night because we were craving a great steak. We had been there before on a previous visit and it was remarkable, but this time it was one of the BEST meals we have ever had in Carmel! (For the second time). The staff was wonderful helping us choose a perfect wine and a perfect steak, and actually steered us away from ordering one that would have been way too much for just the two of us. The Sangiovese they recommended was above perfection as was the meal. I can't say enough about the experience except that we would go back in a heartbeat for the food and wine, the ambience of the small window-side table, and the staff who made us feel so welcome and comfortable."

"We made reservations for 6, including two children for a weekday. When we got there, we were the third table with clients. Everything was delayed. My husband never got his beer. We had to ask 3 different people for the bread and for the water for our table. While the food was actually quite good, the experience was just frustrating due to the poor service. The risotto appetizer was a hit. The pizza was delicious, and the salad and soup were flavorful and fresh. I would get their food to go, but not sure I would sit through their service again."

"We've been coming to Luca's since it opened and it just gets better and better.
We go often and are always impressed. Consistently excellent, continuously creative and imaginative. Favorites are white truffle pasta and veal chop - best anywhere- and any soup. Portions are all shareable and we share quite often. Service always attentive and charming -- they remember who prefers butter to olive oil with the exquisite bread, and who wants pepper on which half of the salad. If only they'd put their chocolate biscotti on the dessert menu!

"Cantinetta Luca is a deservedly popular bistro, presenting exquisitely-prepared Italian dishes, some classical, others imaginative, all delicious. The atmosphere is charming and very vibrant, making for a fun evening (or day)."

"We've been here numerous times and the service and food are always spot-on. We started with the artisan salume and burrata. Every bite was a delight. Even though it wasn't on the lunch menu, we asked if the chef would prepare the bistecca fiorentina from the dinner menu for us. Have you ever been to a restaurant and made a special request and been turned down? Or, perhaps the request was honored, but it was clear they were put off? Not here!! We were made to feel as if our server, Audrey, and chef were just waiting for us to ask and would have done anything to please us. The steak was perfectly prepared. The wine list is very approachable and we could have sat there all afternoon enjoying the ambiance. We've always had impeccable service and Audrey continued that trend. Carmel has many choices and we've been to most of them, but we always keep coming back to Luca."
