Restaurant seats over 250 patrons and has a menu full of great selections from mussels to Croque Madame! The proprietor owns a vineyard and features great wines under the Georgis label!

I have dined at Casanova multiple times, and I will not deny that this is a favorite spot for many tourists and locals alike. But for whatever reason, I always leave feeling a bit underwhelmed. The decor/location is cute, like a small cottage, and the...More
