It's the smallest restaurant I have ever visited. Which make it fill up in very few minutes after opening. We had some starters with brandade, octopus and anchovies. All nicely fresh and homemade. Then some really heavy main courses also with fish. All was well cooked and simple - and very generous servings. Traditional and precise cooking.

This is only a very small restaurant but it is one that you dream of finding. It is used by locals who know how good the food is. The walls are filled with paintings and it is like a scene from a Van Gogh painting. A very pleasant lady takes your order from a small menu of locally sourced produce.... More

Excellent restaurant and exceptional Corsican experience. Rate/quality/price make it sensational. Don't forget to book by going there the day before. Cash only.

We had a welcome return to this gem of a restaurant. It oozes charm and tradition and is a perfect antidote to the usual corsican set menu holiday fare. The place is is a little snug but the food more than makes up for it. Portions are big , wine is well priced and the cooking is fantastic.

Second visit to U Casanu a year after the first was just as good. Proper old fashioned short menu executed really well. A little effort to communicate in French goes a long way. Service is good,go without preconceptions and try new things. We would go back every time we are in Calvi. Reservation a good idea.

Pleasantly surprised by this restaurant, the service was typically French I had fun trying to make the owner smile. But it is all about the food, which is superb.

This little restaurant is excellent. It is only small but is air conditioned and the food is all prepared and cooked to order. It is a welcome relief from most of the other restaurants in Calvi. To be highly recommended

You sould taste roasted or cooked octopus. It's delicious. It's a different place in Calvi. Small but very friendly

The hand written menu caught our eye, as did the tiny restaurant and the happy diners. We went the next night, and had brandade de morue - a new and delightful experience, beignets de legume- enormous but delicious plateful, magret de canard and octopus stew. This place is not to be missed...maybe share a starter!
