Mostly Italian menu with hints of Med and France. Chefs let the food take the lead, with classic - even simple - preparations which accentuate the ingredients. We enjoyed every course; if I had a complaint, it is that the dishes were slightly under seasoned but overall very good. Service was mixed but friendly. Reservation process is outdated (telephone only). But the restaurant is worth the effort; great place for lunch or an evening out in likewise charming Carmel.

When you have to pay for bread you know you have stepped into another world of audacity. This place has no energy. It is clear they have lost their passion for service and appreciation for their customers. Save your money and stay away.

Plastic menus say it all. What was once romantic is now mundane I am sad to say. Our last few meals there have been unexciting served by disinterested staff.We will not go back, there are too many much better places in Carmel.

I've eaten at Casanova many times over the years, and each time loved it. But the last time we ate there, the energy was completely gone. This may be because it was election night when Trump won…and the restaurant was not full.

But when we got our food, it was rather disappointing. For the price, we expected more. I won't give up hope for this restaurant and will visit it again in the future when, hopefully, the energy will be back making the hefty price worth it.

But I can tell you that for the cuteness factor, this restaurant is fabulous. Love, love, love how cute and quaint it is.

This cozy restaurant is one of the top Carmel unique jewels, their food is gourmet but with good size portions!

We were there for brunch and the ambiance is romantic and charming. We've heard that dinner is also wonderful. Great staff and service too.

Must try in Carmel!
