Casanova (like its name) is the Most Romantic Italian Restaurant on the West Coast. The service was very good... the side patio is the best...weather permitting.. The best part are the quality Italian dishes Limited seating - so book early. Enjoy!

While everyone recommended this restaurant, my wife and I found it to be lacking. There are many other much better restaurants in and around Carmel.

A very cute restaurant with rather simple offerings but with a full bar, and they knew how to make an authentic martini made to order. This is supposed to be an Italian restaurant, but except for the home-made pasta menu, the fare was more California cute. Wife and I shared six raw oysters which were good but the blood orange...

We eat here every time we come to Carmel because it is our favorite. That is saying a lot since there are so many good restaurants in Carmel. The food is excellent & the atmosphere is so quaint & unique. The servers seem to enjoy their work & do a great job.

Casanova was recommended by a friend so we decided to try it. The staff was great, the atmosphere was wonderful and the food was amazing! I had the French Onion Soup and Fettuccine and cannot say enough good things about them! I will definitely go again!

We sat outside & enjoyed the stars and the heaters! The wine list was INCREDIBLE. Our food delightful. I loved each one of the servers and their attention to detail and the effort to make everything just right. WE will be back... Ask for a seat by the BIG TREE outside...LOVE....

We went for dinner and we were delighted with how delicious EVERYTHING was. I had the cannelloni, my son had the duck, and my husband had the halibut . Everything was a tastebud party. The desserts we had was sorbet, and creme brûlée. The absolute Creme brûlée i have had anywhere.
