Best meal I've had in Carmel! Ate outside in the lovely courtyard... the spinach gnocchi melted on my tongue... & the grilled asparagus salad with watercress, egg, shaved Parmesan & balsamic vinaigrette was delicious! Enjoyed a white Riesling Kabinett as well. My waitress, Jessica, was wonderful! Can't wait to eat here again!!!

I stopped in for lunch and had an absolutely delicious beet salad (no, really) and semolina spinach gnocchi - which were very light. The service was fantastic - super friendly and informative. Great little spot.

Friends reccomended this beautiful restaurant, rambling and atmospheric it is incredibly romantic. Incredible wine list, very extensive and sommelier superb at guiding you through it. Food excellent despite mishap with starter but the real stand out of this place is ambience, can't be beaten.

OMG, this place was fabulous. The atmosphere, service and food all exceeded our expectations. If you are in Carmel, you should try to eat here. We took a tour of the restaurant and the wine cellar, which was such a nice treat.

We have been to Casanova Restaurant twice: once for lunch, and once for a birthday dinner last weekend. On our first visit, we stumbled upon this place and were able to sit down for lunch right away without a reservation. The next time we were in Carmel we made sure to make a dinner reservation because we definitely didn't want... More

This is a fun,casual restaurant with excellent service. I had the lamb and it was delicious and cooked to perfection. The Meyer lemon tart was to die for ! Great wines and knowledgable wine steward.
