It was quite a task getting parked in Carmel but we managed it. This restaurant is quite charming and was recommended to us by the Monterey Plaza. It is VERY "Carmel"

We reserved a table for six at Casanova on a Sunday afternoon. Brunch goes from 11 to 3PM. We sat in food heaven for 2 hours. Started with the vegetable crudite and endive salad for table appetizers. Our orders ranged from Gnocchi to Eggs Benedict....More

We have eaten here many times but this time we were surprised by the limited menu. What we did get was uneven in quality. At least the cannelloni was still good. There are many many better options for a night out. If you must go...More
