Casanova Italian Restaurant
Food itself is outstanding,Food itself is outstanding, however if you are hungry when you get there you will be hungry when you leave as the portion sizes are very small.
Service is exceptional.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Best Italian in KY!Casanova is definitely one of Lexington's most prized gems!
Each time my family and I go there for dinner, the food continues to exceed our expectations - which are now fairly high! We've been to Italy several times, and the meals that are prepared by the Italian and Sicilian family here are as close to being in Italy as nearly any big-city authentic Italian restaurant in the US.
The service is great - the wait staff will remember you each time you arrive - and will prepare anything you'd like, whether it is on the menu or not. The pasta is all prepared by hand onsite, the breads and desserts are all prepared onsite, and the Filet w/ lobster ravioli is absolutely ALWAYS beyond amazing. Please go often!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasantly Surprised!We visited Casanova because we purchased a Groupon. We had never been before and were pleasantly surprised with our dinner there. The restaurant has a lovely designed interior and was spotless. Our waitress was delightful and gave us very good suggestions since it was our first visit there. We were pretty impressed with the food - especially the fillet. We went on a Monday night, fairly late, and it was fairly slow but our waitress told us they have a live jazz band there every Saturday night and it draws quite the crowd. She said reservations are recommended for Saturday night because of this but there is no extra cover charge for the live entertainment. Overall, we were really impressed with this restaurant and will be back.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMVery quiet little find thatVery quiet little find that we would definitely go to again. Extremely reasonable pricing and very good food. Shannon, our server, made the meal completely memorable. She has a passion for the food there and could answer any question in detail. When the wine we ordered was not available she offered two alternates and said not to worry if we didn't like them, that we could exchange for another (since we were not familiar with the options on the menu). Try the limoncello - owner came by and told us of his family's origins in the area in which it was made. While restaurant was not super busy, once it is discovered it will be for the great food and truly outstanding service!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
