- Carmel Valley area -
Cafe Rustica restaurant is definitely a beautiful addition to Carmel Valley village.
Excellent use of fresh local produce adds to the meal's memorableness.
Cafe Rustica is joy on the table!
It's understandably "crowded with locals", but carloads from the coast declare it's "worth the drive inland to laid-back Carmel Valley" for the "friendly hospitality" and "reasonably priced" "variety of hearthy","creative" Californian dishes (with shout-outs to the "delicious" "thin crust", wood fired pizzas and "enormous salads") proffered at this "terrific" cottage; inside can get a little "cramped and noisy", but on a "hot, dry day or a starlit night", the "gorgeous patio" "feels like Tuscany."
