I am a local and have been dining at the Patisserie Boissiere for years. Located on Mission between Ocean and 7th Avenues, it could not be more conveniently situated. It offers a broad selection of concoctions my favorite being their splendid Boeuf Bourguignon. A huge bonus is the dining room is quiet which makes it possible to enjoy conversation without... More

Lovely restaurant called Enzo. I guess the name has changed from Nico ? Great place with a lovely fireplace. I highy recommend the homemade crab ravioli...so tasty and delicious. The risotto is also very nice served with fresh vegetable.

I'll start off by saying that I believe this place is now called Enzo's and it's deff not "permanently closed" as trip advisor and Yelp are saying. I am Italian and know amazing Italian food ... let me just tell you this meal BLEW ME AWAY. I wish I lived closer so I could go back (on the east coast).... More

First I have to say, not sure if the name is Nico's or Enzo. But stopped in here hungry and tired after walking around to galleries. The warm fresh bread served with their "secret sauce" was something so delicious, I couldn't stop thinking about it. The next day after hiking in the morning, my husband and I wanted to go... More

My wife and I agree that this is the best ambiance in Carmel if you are looking for a quiet and romantic place to dine for a date night or anniversary dinner. They have a cozy fireplace inside that warms up the place and makes it feel very special. I ordered the crab ravioli and WOW! I ended up ordering... More

We stopped in here for lunch and sat on the small patio which was a little too sunny but was beautiful. Service is great and the pizzas are delicious!

We ate here last night. The new name is Dali. We chose Manzoni Pinot Noir which was amazing. Highly recommend it. I ordered the breaded eggplant and fresh mozzarella as an appetizer. The presentation was lovely with 4 layers of eggplant and cheese. The eggplant was room temperature/ to cool which is not what I expected. It was bland. Both... More

Popped in here on a whim for a casual dinner and enjoyed a great meal. With great wine of course. Prices seemed reasonable / normal for this tourist town and portions ideal. Had fun chatting with the owner and our fun server too. Lost a star due to cold, unimpressive "minestrone" which was really just vegetables and a light broth,... More

The ambiance was nice and cozy. The wine racks and fireplace made the restaurant seem less Italian and more fusion. We came for the food. The bread was nice and warm, the tomato dip was delish. For the appetizer, we had the mushrooms, which had a slightly sweet taste, but was adequate. For the main course, we had the spinach... More

We were trying to have a late lunch and after looking around for a bit found this place and, as the menu pleased us, decided to try it out. The food took a long time but it was pretty well prepared and tasty. When it comes to service I guess we were the lucky ones that afternoon as our server... More
