“Very cool place ... more than "2 thumbs up" !!!”
Reviewed April 2, 2011

Hi, I've known Nik (the owner) for a little more than 3 years now, he's simply a wonderful guy ... and his restaurant is excellent, wonderful ambience, great service, fantastic food, big wine selection, "the works" in every way !!!
And I happen to be a musician as well, and I'm playing there on a regular basis (every 1st Saturday a month), and I have to say, "Casanova ristorante" is one of my all-time favourite places to play, and/or just to hang out with friends and family !!!
Congratulations Nik - you've done a great job for the people down here in Dana Point, and South County altogether !!!

“Best in town!”
Reviewed February 3, 2011

Such a great place any day of the week, food is fantastic! I crave the eggplant app and the osso bucco "nik's way" is the best, just ask him for anything and he will make sure to take care of you!
