Thank you for perfection in every way!! Food and ambiance and Service was beyond wonderful. You made our 30th wedding anniversary dinner the best celebration ever. We will be back.


Thank you for the fantastic meal, we enjoyed our food, the ambiance and the kind service very much. Our Dog Bruno (who turns 5 tomorrow) loved being here too! We will be back again.

My favorite romantic restaurant in Carmel! This adorable & quaint little house of a restaurant is a delight to visit. The food is amazing; I love their spinach gnocci, mussels and short ribs are to die for. Pretty much everything I've had in my 2 visits has been delicious. the service and attention is great and I love walking through this lovely restored little house. They will even show you their under ground wine cellar if you ask to see it. You cannot come to Carmel and not visit Casanova!

We spent my Dad's 60th birthday here last Saturday. It was definitely a meal I will remember for the next 60 years.

The service was the best service I've ever experienced. From the manager to the busboy, we were never ignored and always made to feel part of the family.

I had the duck confit salad, my fiance had the shrimp scampi--both DELICIOUSLY amazingly wonderful bits of heaven on my taste buds.

The best part is that we didn't even know what we were getting into. We thought this place looked cute, but had no clue what a culinary adventure we were about to embark on. Plus the ambiance is priceless, quaint yet classy and kitschy yet beautiful.

I loved Van Gough's table hidden in the back too! If they are up for it, I would even consider having my wedding here!!!

Casanova's reminds me of Little Red Hiding Hood's house with a courtyard and tree lights. Low ceilings, tile floors, stucco walls with straw, lots of small rooms.

Some of my most memorable visits have evolved around dessert here.They have the old school table set-up by the front door, so you know to save room, plus a coffee serving on a sliver tray. I recommend going on a late night or rainy afternoon for a cappuccino with Bailey's. Order the chocolate nougatine pie, it's *amazing*.
