High-quality cuisine at a reasonable price

My wife and I eat here once or twice a year. The food is of consistently high quality and we have never had the slightest cause to criticise it. On our last visit, the service was first rate too. The prices have remained competitive over the years - as a consequence, the restaurant now offers even... read more

Booked this restaurant for a business dinner. From the moment we walked in we were treated as VIP guests, this service was delivered to each and every customer. Food absolutely delightful with customer service to match. A wonderful menu with fresh and authentic Italian taste, the menu is small but something for everyone, a good sign food is cooked to...

My Lamb was excellent whilst my partner found her Pasta to be tough and somewhat stodgy. Limited menu so you need to be choosy, if there is nothing to your liking, then suggest you look elsewhere. Very Italian so do not be surprised by tables being close together and the noise levels high. Service is efficient and the wine list... More

This was only my second visit after a two year break and I was not disappointed as this excellent little restaurant serves up wonderful food by friendly and helpful staff. The food is complimented by a wonderful range of Italian wine. If you love Italian food then this is a must

Really Italian Food! They actually take you into the country and give you their dishes. Each day there is a special. I have actually seen the chef at the early morning market picking out his fish! Really how fresh is that!!!!

Went with colleagues for a leaving do. Had the Goat's Cheese and beetroot salad to start, lamb 2 ways for the main and chocolate ganache with salted caramel. It was delicious from start to finish and the wine was good too.

I went here with a group of 4 for my girlfriend's birthday. The restaurant wasn't particularly busy, but we received a very warm welcome (from whom I assumed to be the owner), which was a very nice touch. Everyone was very impressed with their food, and the service was very good. I had the lamb starter, which was excellent. I... More

We had been wanting to try Casanova since seeing a very good review in The Observer some time ago, and it more than lived up to expectations. On arrival, we were greeted with a complimentary glass of Prosecco to "thank you for coming" which was a nice touch. The menu is relatively small, but the quality of the food outstanding... More
