Italian
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.

While the waiter who served us was hospitable however the manager talked to us in an arrogant manner and made us feel unwelcome.

We had a bad experience with the waiter over a very dreadful second bottle of wine which was undrinkable. It was also our wedding day, ruined our wedding meal! The food was good though.

We used to like this place, however, yesterday 12/24/2019 we had breakfast reservation for 11:15am but to our surprise the hostess and manager told us kitchen is closed and that Opentable messed up.
They were very unfriendly and terrible service and bad attitude.
We ended going to the other restaurant next door.

I hope that opentable remove this restaurant from this App given reservations means nothing.

The Mahi Mahi entree was great, but the steak was so tough and full of hard fat. I would not recommend the stray ever!

Waited for ages to be served despite having a reservation. Food was moderately expensive but the value was not there. Food quality was mediocre (they don't make their own pasta and sauces were bland). They will ask if you want parmesan on your dish but don't bother - it looks to have come out of a green shaker can.

The restaurant was so loud I couldn’t hear the conversation. We ordered 3 pasta dishes and 2 salads - it took an hour to get our food. I will not be returning.

Food was fine, VERY noisy and too crowded. Service was good, but dropped off swiftly after entree. Waited 25 mins before flagging down our waiter to ask where the dessert was.

I recommend this restaurant if you want a casual lunch on the go, but not if you want a formal sit down dinner. It’s located in such a busy spot and it is quite noisy.

Good food at reasonable prices. Pleasant and efficient servers.
We were celebrating our anniversary and they provided a delicious dessert.
Several very large groups of diners made it noisy.

This was a resort restaurant that tried but missed. For the price you should have better food. The wait staff was okay, menu was fair, High price did not meet the expectations

Won’t be going back.

Two colleagues and I went here after a day-long conference. The cocktails we ordered pre-dinner were all perfectly made and delicious. The bread basket was welcome for hungry tummies, but was nothing special. However, the cioppino and smoked salmon pasta with vodka sauce were heavenly. Topped off with gelato and cannoli we had a memorable meal. My only complaint was the aggressive violinist who interrupted our conversation by poking the scroll of his instrument directly in my face and then doing the same thing to each of my colleagues for a total of 15-minutes of unwanted serenading. While his music was lovely, we were not receptive at the time and felt obligated to tip three times for each song.

The manager was accomadating he sat us a a very nice booth. The server was wonderful. More old world service. He was very knowledgeable and extremely professional. It is refreshing to have this kind of service. He did not wish to be our friend. He just wished to give great service. The food was extent and prepared well. The entrees came hot and well presented. The restaurant had a strolling violinist that came to our table and plaid our song. It was our 45th wedding anniversary. I give this restaurant a thumbs up. Thank you to the manager and staff for making this memorable.

My family had a wonderful time at Casanova’s. The food was delectable. My mom enjoyed the Lamb Chops Scottaditto. My daughter enjoyed the Ricotta and Smoked Salmon Flat bread. My sister enjoyed the Fettuccine Casanova. And I enjoyed a dish with sea bass, shrimp, scallops, calamari , mussels, clams in a tomato sauce.

The servers could have been more attentive. The food was good but for the price to me it did not equate to what we expected. Also more variety with beverages. My party doesn't drink alcohol so we wanted sweet tea. However the restaurant didn't offer sweet tea and this was a complete let down. Because even though packaged sugars were available because the tea was already ice cold the sugar did not mix in well. We just expected a better experience. We also wanted to sit inside of the restaurant verses the noisy patio. The hostess would not allow us to sit in the inside, which was very puzzling to me. So we were forced to sit on the patio open area and were cold the entire time.

Food was good except for the tasteless caprese salad. Ambience was food court quality. Most diners were in rumpled shorts and tank tops. Too tacky for the high prices!

We thought this restaurant would be a nice place to eat for date night. However, based on the noise level and food court atmosphere, we had to leave after ordering. The food is over priced and simple. I would not recommend to anyone other than someone wanting a party atmosphere.

Steak was a little overdone and server explained it would take a while to redo so they did offer me a glass of wine to make up. Otherwise, was a good meal.

We requested to sit inside because the noise level next to the corridor was noisy. At first it was quieter inside but once it started to fill up inside, it was also very noisy. Food was very good, but too noisy for our taste

I had to tip above the suggested level. We have always been welcomed by the owner or a fine young lady with a warm smile and attentivness. Somehow they remember their customers and make you feel special. The food is always consistently outstanding, service attentive , respectful, and friendly. The water glasses and beverages are kept full and and the staff stays closby to provide any amenities. The chefs, managers and waiting staff gel as a fine trained team focused on making our dining experience a special occasion. We dine here at least twice per trip. My family wants to try other options on the strip but they always fail in comparison to Casanova. Thanks again. The Guizzotti family.

We visited Casanova during a Vegas trip and thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. We visited late but service was impeccable and we didn’t feel rushed. Entrees were primarily seafood, linguine and clams, lobster ravioli. Entrees were served piping hot and portion size was good.

We dined “outdoors” near concourse of Venetian shoppes so there was so noise. It did not detract from dinner though.

The manager was attentive and visited us twice to check on us. Nice touch
