My wife and I ate there about 3-4 years ago and had a wonderful dining experience (food, service and ambiance). Last Sunday we met another couple for dinner and 2 out of three (service and ambiance) were still spot on but the food was a mixed bag. My wife had the soup and I selected the gnocchi as an appetizer,... More

A friend recommended this spot, so six of us, visiting the area, tried it. Food was very good, and service was good as well. We would definitely return, when in the area.

We love taking our dog to Casanova - the staff are always welcoming & warm. The food consistently exceeds our expectations. For our anniversary, they wrote "happy anniversary" across the desert plate! Great spot for pampering service & excellent cuisine.

We are from NYC so have higher expectations than most but the food here was subpar and quite expensive for what it is. The staff were friendly and attentive but the food was really not good. I can't recommended another Italian restaurant at this time in Carmel but we did go to the happy hour at Il Fiornio and got... More

We had a great meal. Our waiter was very knowledgable. We had salmon and aussobucco. Excellent. Desert was awesome. Definitely a hit.

Casanova's restaurant in Carmel is an ideal place to spend an evening with your loved one. The food is fantastic, the wine list extensive and yet personalized and the service top notch.

We had reservations and looked forward to fine dining with charming, quiet ambiance. We were sorely disappointed. Certainly poor value for the experience! It was a cool night and our area was drafty, with supplemental heating sporadically providing some heat. We shall not return.

I first heard about Casanova's over 30 years ago and have always wanted to dine there but never had an opportunity. I dined alone on a Thursday evening and the restaurant was packed. Great atmosphere.. casual, yet service was top notch. I had the gnocchi appetizer, which was delicious and the best I've ever had. My dinner entree was the... More

This is one of the best restaurants in Carmel. The outdoor seating is not in the direct sun but really pretty. I had their capellini special with filet minon in an incredible red sauce. The meat was tender. I took half of it home and enjoyed it for dinner. My friend had their omelette special with fennel, goat cheese and... More
