Il Tegamino features indoor seats & outdoor seats in our charming courtyard.

Our outdoor seats are surrounded by heaters & we provide plush blankets for added warmth.

Due to our cozy size, we do not take nightly reservations.

 We encourage you to walk in.

A wait list begins when the restaurant is full.

We take your number and text when the table is ready so you can explore and enjoy Carmel-by-the-Sea during the wait.

We look forward to having you as our guest!
