No need to analyze any longer! You should definitely dine at Casanova! I highly recommend ordering the gnocchi as an appetizer (to die for!!). Then have the cannelloni or the osso buco. My husband and I split the two dishes and we were in heaven....More

We've eaten at Casanova twice now, both times for lunch. It's a really cool place with good food and a good staff. Maybe a little on the pricey side for what you get but not a deal breaker. The wine list was great but pricey...More

We love this place mainly for the atmosphere but I don't think the food is spectacular. I feel like the food was just average and overpriced but we will always want to go there for the atmosphere. I would recommend going here for an appetizer...More

My husband and I celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary in Carmel and dined at this charming restaurant recommended by our hotel staff. We dined in the outdoor garden area in the rear, which had overhead heaters to keep us comfortable. We were amazed by the...More

what more can I say? The bread was average especially considering how much they talked it up. Salad and main average. Pay a little extra and upgrade to another place
