I came here for my birthday with my girlfriends this past April. OMG! What a treat! The food in this restaurant were excellent. The "Gnocchi Casanova" was the best gnocchi I have ever had & the "Linguini alla Scapesce" was to die for. Then for dessert, the "Chocolate Nougatine" was oh so good! I will definitely come back the next... More

Dined here with our family. All of our meals were exceptional and the ambiance cannot be beaten. Very good service as well. The best wine list you will likely ever see in your life. If you a into wne, Ask for a tour of the wine cellar. Amazing labels and vintages.

Good food, good service, very cute and romantic, but oh those prices. Even in Carmel, this place is very high. And don't even think about ordering a bottle of wine, unless you are on one of those old expense accounts. We have been there twice and we think that the service has gone down a bit as well between visits.

We loved this spot! Such a great atmosphere. Great wine list. We had the gnocci, mushroom app special, crab, salmon and braised cannelloni. All very tasty. They don't have a bar so if you want to grab a drink before hand not ideal, but certainly go for dinner!

By nature, I am a thrifty person. I like a good value for my money. This place is expensive, but worth it for a special occasion. It's like an event. My friend and I split the 2 person rib eye dinner. ($37. each!) but it was enough for an army. Many others at the table got to enjoy the fabulous... More

Casanova's is the best restaurant in Carmel. The food is excellent, the service, the best and the atmosphere is truly magical. If while dining at Casanova, you are lucky enough to be invited to visit the wine cave - an invitation extended only by their wine manager, who also hosts the tour - you will be in for an unsurpassed...

What a great place. Our group of 8 enjoyed everything about this place but one thing really stood out. The Spinich Gnocchi!!! Wow! I had to order 2 more orders because I would pass it around for everyone to taste and by the time it got back to me it looked like a clean bowl that had never been used.... More

Entire staff friendly! The food was excellent and beautifully presented. The wine, one of the less expensive bottles, was excellent. It was a wonderful experience.
