In Carmel for the summer and time for my wife's birthday celebration. Casanova was an easy choice as that is where I went on her first visit to Carmel some 20 years ago. I go back even further as Casanova has always been high on my list, especially when it was smaller, very romantic and always exceptional food. A couple... More

We had such a perfect time here with good service and excellent food. An encyclopedic wine list didn't hurt either. With many spectacular choices for dinner in Carmel, Casanova remains one of the best all around experiences.

Always enjoy visiting Carmel-by-the-Sea and lunch or dinner where Sue and I bring our 10 year old dog Bode.

Very good food, great service and very very pet friendly. Love sitting on the front patio, sipping your favorite beverage, a few appetizers and people watching.

The service pace is extremely slow. The food was ok. But there are other good restaurants out there. I recommend u try them, not this one.

We had no reservations anywhere in Carmel, and if you didn't already know, you'll pretty much be out of luck if you don't have any. We walked to a different Italian and upon reading the menu, opted not to eat there. So we walked across the street and Casanova took us in right away! Yummy Italian food in a great... More

We visited the restaurant over the 4th of July holiday weekend and were seated in the outdoor area in the back. We had an amazing meal of oysters, scallops and salmon. The staff were friendly and informed us of portion of sizes, letting us know if something was on the smaller side. It was on the pricey side, but perfect... More

We stayed 3 nights in Carmel and studied reviews from various sources. This was put on our list and exceeded our expectations. Everything was top shelf; the food, service, and setting.

Two couples visited Casanova after reading very positive reviews online about food, wine, ambience, service, etc. Overall, we left feeling very underwhelmed. Our server was great and the wine list was quite extensive, but the food was poor...particularly for the price. There are much better restaurants in the area if you are interested in great food.
