    We had a dining room reservation for wife's birthday. Showed up on time and was told by hostess that they were waiting for tables to clear. After 20 of waiting hostess handed us off to runner who took us outside and seated us on patio where it was beginning to rain. Asked waiter why we were not seated inside. He went back to hostess and then came back and said there were no other tables available. We decided to leave rather than sit in the rain for an expensive meal. Very unprofessional and I would recommend looking elsewhere. Disappointing night for my wife. No explanation offered by restaurant.

    This place delivers on so many levels, depending on where you are seated (inside, outside, etc.). Not sure which seating I like best yet. The food is great. The sommelier knowledgeable. The service prompt. Walter is the most charming and interesting proprietor I’ve ever met. I travel from Santa Cruz during rush hour just to eat here on occasion.

    We came here for a birthday celebration while staying in Carmel. We had gnocchi, Dover sole, and clam linguine at our table and all were amazing. We even got a piece of cheesecake for my friends birthday which was very yummy! My only ‘complaint’ which others have mentioned is we were 10 minutes early and had to wait when there were many open tables. I’m sure there is a reason for it but just don’t expect to be seated until your reservation time!

    We got there 15 minutes early and they made up wait for the table right up to the minute. Once the lady that seats you tried to seat us I wanted to be in an area that was cozy and private.  Why is she chose the living room? I really don’t know because it’s everything I asked not to be seated in. The restaurant at 4:45 in the afternoon this next to empty so I don’t understand because the table we were ultimately seated at had been emptied that whole time, and they seated someone right near us in the same little cubbyhole room, but not us. I have a super bad knee and can’t stand on it very long, there’s no place to sit down and wait, so I thought it was kind of crummy of them not to see us where we asked to be seated, which they ultimately did, but didn’t do at first at all, everything else was great. The food was great. Our waiter was nice. I wouldn’t say great but very nice. I mean it was my girlfriend‘s birthday, and they tried to give her an alcoholic drink, but she doesn’t drink, but nobody made an attempt to do anything further as a happy birthday thing I made it abundantly clear it was her birthday and like two days. Anyway, she loved it. I know how good this restaurant can be because we always go there for special occasions, so I was slightly disappointed in that part of the service.

    My girlfriend and I spent two hours at Casanova and fell in love with the food and service. Our server, Michael, gave us time to decide on each dish (appetizers, salads, mains) without us feeling rushed. The plates were picked up without us noticing, too. We are vegetarians but did not feel limited by the options. We will be coming back next season for another magical night.
