Best bruschetta ever! Lovely location right on the water, terrific service, food was amazing. We ate here several times 15 years ago when we were on Cayman, and have dreamed of coming back ever since. Came here again last month when we were in port on a cruise and still every bit as wonderful!

Our first night in Grand Cayman was the best. We were spoiled by Salvatore and the rest of the staff. Two great bottles of wine,spectacular lobster pasta, and a gorgeous view of the ocean! we even made another reservation to visit before we leave the island! Salvatore, thanks for making our night fun!

Dinner for 7 was outstanding. The wind and the ocean were up so we did not get to eat outside this time around. Despite that the ambiance and the food more than made up for that minor issue. The food is extraordinarily good and the prices (by Cayman standards) are very reasonable. Italian fare is on the Menu and its... More

We went after reading all the reviews with high expectations, and we expected to be disappointed in those expectations. However, our meal exceeded even our inflated hopes. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The children loved their food, and also enjoyed feeding the tarpon. The homemade pastas, the friendless of the staff, and the overall ambiance of the restaurant... More

It has been our tradition to cap off our week in paradise with a farewell lunch at Casanova, on our way to the airport. Since they open at 11:00, that timing makes it possible with our flight schedule. Gianni, our host, seated us promptly and explained several of the menu offerings. We started with the conch fritters and polenta marinara... More

I did a lot of research on finding the perfect oceanfront dining experience. Casanova By The Sea is that place. In downtown Georgetown, this restaurant gave us memories that will live on for years to come. We made reservations to coincide with the sunset. It was perfect. We were then introduced to "Salvatore" who gave us a tour of the... More
