Executive Chef Jason Balestrieri oversees Cantinetta Luca in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea. The popular restaurant offers the pure flavors of an
authentic Italian trattoria in a casual, modern setting. Cantinetta Luca’s ingredients are
always fresh and seasonal; presentations are rich and rustic. Chef Balestrieri sources
the best available ingredients from local farmers, fishmongers and purveyors. Many
items on the menu are made in-house including the breads, many cheeses, artisanal
salumi and fresh pastas. Specialties include wood-oven baked pizza, as well as a wide
array of antipasti, whole fire-roasted fish and grilled meats, served family-style.
