A great place for ladies to lunch, families to brunch, lunch or dine, and couples to have a romantic meal
Casanova has been a favorite of many in Carmel since the 1970’s. The restaurant is in an adorable building which was a house at some point in its' history – history can be found on the website. There are several different very comfortable rooms to choose from and outdoor seating with overhead heaters for the cooler hours. The cuisine is French and Italian country.
They do a Sunday brunch from 10-3 and their lunch menu is offered from 11:30 till 3 the rest of the days. They serve straight through, but from 3-5 they only offer appetizers and desserts. And dinner is from 5pm – 10pm.
We went for a late lunch on a Saturday, fortunately making it time to enjoy a full menu. I guess we got there just in time.
We ordered a glass of Campari and enjoyed the patio/garden setting, and the heat from the heaters placed throughout.
Rob began with sautéed mushrooms in the most delightful sauce of butter and garlic (Champignons Farcis $8.75), and I started with a triple cheese with organic honey drizzled over and around and a bit of honey cone on the plate (Les Fromages $9.75). We both enjoyed our choices and will reorder the same next time.
Then, I went for the special pasta with seafood and shell fish (Mimo di Capri $14.95), which was all very fresh and in a rich broth, and Rob ordered steak frites ($17.75), which had a nice sauce and was completely enjoyed.
We finished with a citron soufflé, which was still warm and very light on the tongue.
We ordered a bottle of Georis Cab ($45) - which is one of the wines made by the owners of this restaurant – Casanova – and Corkscrew Café in Carmel Valley.
The total bill came to $145 before tip.
The service was very attentive and the staff is well versed on their menu and wines.
We highly recommend Casanova.
It is a great place for ladies to lunch or lovers’ to hold hands and enjoy the ambiance.
