About Casanova Restaurant

This intimate, small trattoria has the spirit and the charm you would find on Italy and other countries off the coast of the Mediterranean Sea.

The Chef Daniele Dotti, a native of Venice, has created an eclectic menu that brings to the table the flavors, the traditional recipes and the freshness of ingredients so typical of this region. Our Mediterranean Sea Bass is delicious but if you are in the mood for good pasta try our Linguine Mare Nostrum with a variety of sea food and fresh tomato or our special house made fresh pasta Fettucine Casanova. Now you can enjoy all of this right in the middle of the Grand Canal Shoppes, just a few feet away from Italian gondolas.

The atmosphere and the decor are informal and friendly and children are welcome, but at night it can be ideal for a good glass of wine and a romantic dinner.

Great customer dinner at Casanova. We had a party of 16 and they were able to easily accommodate us. The restaurant was a little loud, but other than that, everything was perfect. I had the sea bass (branzino), and it was one of the best I've ever had. The wine list was a little thin - mostly Italian (Chianti, Barolo, etc.). Service was great and prices are reasonable for a big Vegas evening.

Scheduled customer lunch meeting during overcrowded CES show, but staff showed patience with everyone's different arrival times and pre-order conversations before handling all 8 of us with professional and precise service amidst the chaos and then let us be. Meeting was successful and lunch was quite enjoyable. Nice job under different circumstances, folks! 'Tis much appreciated.

This restaurant has really good food and service at good prices; however, because it's located close to the food court and is open to all foot traffic, you get a lot of traffic noise from people passing by. The noise keeps this restaurant from being intimate so you can enjoy the good food and company.

I️ was so disappointed with our experience. The food was just OK but the service was terrible. It was a busy night but everything was so poorly run that we asked for our bill before the dinner was even complete. Way too many options in Las Vegas to return.

We reserved a table for New Year' Eve dinner, menu options were delicious and really good based on price, they can improve to maintain wines at service temperature, then customers don't need to wait until it is cooled. Service was really good it was remarkable that the beef was perfectly cooked.

It was a good place for a family dinner. I had a 50 percent off on entrees so that made it an excellent deal. Everyone liked their meal except the one person who ordered steak. It was smothered in a steak sauce which is usually done when the cut of meat isn't the greatest. I think they should at least ask or put on the side. I had the Osso Bucco which was very nice and another in the party really liked her chicken dish. All in all, it's a good place.

Gluten free tomato caprice very good lot of buffalo mozzarella - ask for extra balsamic glaze as it was very light. Gluten free penne pasta w Bolognese sauce good but pasta was overcooked - GF pasta needs to be aldente to avoid breaking apart. Service excellent and waiter very nice.

Husband (not GF) had lobster ravioli said very good.

The eggplant moussaka is soooo very good here. I always look forward to my vegetarian specialty when visiting Las Vegas. I mentioned to four staff how important my visit was too me and not one, none, of the waiters picked up on my conversation... truly left me feeling discounted. Fortunately the food will bring me back again.

It was very comforting to be received this morning at this restaurant with a friendly face and excellent service after a bad terrible dinner experience at Venetian Bouchon.

The host was superb, the service was great and the food was excellent, definitely will go back and highly recommend to all for Breakfast, Lunch or dinner. Perfect location for people watching and get the feel of open market seating.

The location is in a very busy area of the Venetian so there was a lot of activity. Our seating was satisfactory and away from the crowd. The service was excellent. The staff was very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. The food was quite good as was the pinot noir by the glass. We were quite happy with all aspects of the restaurant, dinner and the staff. I would certainly recommend the restaurant for many reasons.

We went to the website for Casanova Restaurant in Carmel-by-the-Sea and were directed to either phoning or using Open Table. We made a reservation using Open Table but when we arrived we found the restaurant was closed from Dec. 19 thru Dec. 26, 2017 (not mentioned on their website nor their answering machine! Late we discovered that Open Table had somehow made our reservation at a Casanova restaurant in Las Vegas (I had not double checked the confirmation information, just the fact that we had a confirmation). We will not use Open Table for reservation in the future without following up with a phone call to confirm.
This caused us to try and find a good restaurant late in the evening in Carmel-by-the-Sea, not a easy task especially on Friday night before Christmas with a the tourist and guests in town.
Most disappointing - especially having no notice of this closure from either the restaurant nor Open Table.

Although this restaurant opens to the shops at the Venetian hotel, it is tucked into a quiet corner which provides for a bit of privacy. Our party consisted of two vegetarians and one carnivore. All of our appetizers, entrees and deserts were excellent. The cut of meat for my main (Veal Ossobuco Milanese) was excellent and the pricing of everything was very reasonable, especially considering the location. The service was attentive and very friendly. We couldn't have been happier with the experience.

They were kind enough to give me a last minute reservation for a party of 8, they didn’t tell me it would be a fold up table outside of the restaurant, it was very cramped. Food was just okay, too much sauce, fish over cooked, not very hot, etc. Service was slow and often times in accurate.

We had dinner there and sat "outside" (within the enclosed Venetian Shopping Area). The food was good, the service quick and friendly and the pricing reasonable. They had the Football game on the TV. Food portions were above average and we took some home in a box. Overall a good experience.

Food quality was average at best. Way overpriced. I asked for a water and they charged me $7 for it because evidently they had to open a new bottle for it. Somehow my check also had a six dollar fee no one could explain other than a service charge for bringing the water. The place itself looked ugly. I understand it was in the food court but it’s the Venetian Hotel, a five-star resort, where everything is world-class. This place was a disappointment and I felt way overcharged.

We arrived for a late dinner an hour and half before close and the wait staff seems more interested in closing than taking our order, When we called the waiter over, he was friendly and polite. The Marsala we ordered was not Marsala, just ordinary tomato sauce, eggplant, cheese and noodles...yawn. Over priced spaghetti but using the 50% off dining card made the dinner more reasonable.

Don't bother...Overpriced for quality of food. You would get a better meal at Olive Garden. The steak was tough and over salted. The salmon over cooked and not fresh. The lamb chops were overdone and cut too thin to be even cooked rare. The gnocchi was just okay. The bartender did not know how to make a vodka gimlet. The wait staff was courteous and attentive but made no attempt to offer salad or appetizer. The atmosphere was supposed to be quaint and romantic but felt more like imposter Italian food while eating at the mall. I would not recommend or ever go back.

The waiter came about 15 minutes with menu . Took order . Bought my fish very rare , not done. Finally got a hold of someone to tell them about the fish sent it back. The plate came back extremely hot burnt my hand when they handed me the plate. The flat bread 2 people ordered was pizza instead. The drink one ordered was something different . Some oysters we're not done. Could not find waiter to tell him the problems nor did once we received our food never saw anyone again till he dropped the check off and went directly to a big party table and was laughing there. It was our 20 year anniversary had a party of 6 and my bill was $116.00 .And felt like our table was a waste off there time.. we will never be back and will definitely not give good reviews to our friends and family that goes out there alot.... Extremely bad experience considering we had renewed our vows then came to your restaurant after doing alot off research for a nice dinner.. please feel free to contact me if you want to hear my experience directly from me. 815-354-0627

Meh, slightly below average Italian food. We had to ask for bread, which was served with butter rather than olive oil. The crust on the pepperoni flatbread was soggy and tasteless. The lasagna was too cheesy. The Tuscan bean soup did not have enough seasoning, other than salt. It was a long wait for us to get the check after our plates had been cleared.

We went here during a visit to the Venetian based on the OpenTable listing. The food was very good, and was reasonable compared to other similar places. The service was slow -especially when we first sat down. Also, had the impression that this place was on the Venetion canal. In reality this was not true. We had a table facing the interior looking out that the other mall restaurants.
