Dinner at Cantinetta Luca, Carmel


Dinner tonight at Cantinetta Luca promised to be outstanding. First of all, it was recommended by Wendy and Rob, who live on the Monterey Peninsula. Secondly, it got lots of good online reviews. And I DID remember to make a reservation, so we were all set.

We were seated in the bar area where we were able to see all of the action.

To start, I chose Tricolore - Bitter Greens, Green Apple, Gorgonzola, Walnuts and Honey Vinaigrette, and it was delicious.

Bill's pick was the Wild Arugula - Roasted Beets, Toasted Hazelnuts, Blood Oranges and Red Wine Vinaigrette, and it was also outstanding.

I had my heart set on ravioli, and I was not disappointed with the Spring Lamb Ravioli with Fava Beans and Olives.

Bill chose the Stinco d’Agnello - Braised Colorado Lamb Shank,Taggiasca Olives and Rosemary and loved it.

We shared a side of Broccoli Rabe.

Then there was dessert -


We drank our last bottle of Barbaresco that we got in Italy - the corkage fee was only $15.

Another enthusiastic recommendation! Carmel has lots of good restaurants!
