About Carmel’s Bistro Giovanni

When it comes to full-flavor Italian and Mediterranean cuisine, just one restaurant comes to mind: Carmel’s Bistro Giovanni, a legendary Carmel restaurant with exceptional food, unpretentious service and gorgeous murals adorning the walls.


The chefs make tried-and-true recipes with a twist, like slow-roasted short ribs that fall off the bone, from certified Angus steaks, tender Lamb and mouth watering Pasta dishes.

We offer just the right amount of indulgence. And hearty nutrition. So bring yourself … a friend or your entire group.

We have a full Bar and a reasonably priced wine list, and don’t forget to ask for the owner’s unique Block 57 and Da Giovanni wines.

Our Carmel Restaurant features a dog-friendly patio.
