All the locals hang out here. That should tell you all you need to know. Service is fast and on spot. The atmosphere was perfect and the views were unbelievable! The Chicken Parmesan was wonderful but the ravioli dish that my friend had was the best. It was made with red wine so it looked like blush pasta. Devine!

Casanova's is located on the edge of George Town harbour and is a wonderful setting. We had a wonderful meal with a lovely bottle of Italian wine, Rubrato Aglianico Dei Feudi Di San Gregorio 2005 - As Delightful As The Land It Comes From. A truly great evening with an outstanding companion.

After eating here our first day on the Island, we then proceeded to eat here EVERY day we were on the Island.

We chose this restaurant because, when traveling, we always look for the place where the locals go and this place was filled with local business people. The reason is immediately apparent.

The view, while lovely, was secondary to food and service. The food was always perfectly cooked and flavorful. The service was always excellent… well beyond what we would normally expect.

The Chicken Parmesan, a staple of Italian restaurants, was incredibly tender and light-handed with the cheese. The Pollo Reale was a delicious surprise… creamy chicken with mushrooms and served over an equally creamy spinach risotto.

Then, there was the grilled sirloin steak, an order I usually reserve for a “steak house”… the best I have ever had. I ordered it Medium… then medium well… and then I finally said, “Pink” (because in other restaurants I have had “medium” steaks almost raw). The waiter promised “pink” and pink (medium), it was. And… juicy… So tasty that my husband kept wandering into my plate with his fork.

Then there are the desserts (A special Strawberry Napoleon was our favorite) and even the cappuccino… made with Lavazza coffee.

Finally, there is the friendliness, very much appreciated in a destination that could have become jaded from tourism.

We strongly recommend this restaurant.

Go here skip the hotel fair and go to this family owned very Italian restaurant and experience the best cuisine on the island. The service is crazy awesome, no pretense the owner is a doll, manager, wait staff Mossimo and Antonio remember me from a year ago and greet me with hugs. On the ocean at sunset uber romantic!

We heard about Casanova from another visitor to Grand Cayman who raved about the place. We visited tonight and loved every minute of our time there. Our waiter (Michel, from Sardinia) was fabulous. After a brief chat he said "leave the menu, what do you like?" We discussed what we liked and he said to leave the choices to him. The result - the most fabulous meal of mozzarella, prosciutto appetisers and gorgeous lobster pasta for our main. When asked what we wanted for desert, we had to say to Michel "your choice". He brought us cannoli, tiramisu and amaretto - again delicious. Even though the restaurant was very busy with Christmas parties the service was great. We had a great time and would definitely go back.
