We had lunch at Casanova, and sitting in the covered courtyard was very nice. My wife had their special jadori chicken dish which was excellent. I went traditional with the Croque Monsieur which was neither special or excellent..but the frites were good. Skip the sandwich and go with prepared specials.

The restaurant is very charming. The servers are knowledgeable and helpful. The food was DELICIOUS. Four of us ate there. I had the Mount Meadows Lamb Rack. It was very tender and not at all gamey. Everybody enjoyed their meals. They have an amazing wine list. I'd eat there again.

Fun casual dining experience. Great food with seasonal flavor. Gnocchi was best ever. Seafood pasta entree was fantastic. Wine list was extensive, but pricey.

I am a local so I've been here a few times. Reservations are a must as is the gnocchi! Great wine selection.

Went on a recommendation. Glad we did as we very much enjoyed our dinner. The place looks small from the outside but opens up to a number of rooms on the inside. My wife chose Arctic Char in a seafood broth, perfectly cooked (ie. translucent fish in a very light broth) and I had the lamb, again well cooked (ie. pink). We had a local Pinot Grigio which was delightful. All in all a great experience. Not sure about the large tables with groups of tourists from afar, but nevertheless, a lovely meal.
