So I'm literally still sitting in this establishment as I write this review. I could Not wait to let people know about it. Not a bad thing to say. We were greeted by a very friendly Hostess. Our server, Meredith, was wonderful. Atmosphere is quaint....More

Every time we go to Casanova's for dinner, it is never a disappointment. Food is fresh; service is superb;atmosphere is very relaxing. They are always spot on with refilling our water glasses. What else is there to say!!

Wonderful neighborhood Italian restaurant in Dana Point. Red leather booths, extensive Italian entrées, soups and salads, full bar, and Frank Sinatra favorites playing in the background!!! What more could you want..... Great service and atmosphere. Convenient off street parking. Highly recommended.

The restaurant was within a short drive from hotel, so made a reservation. The place has a nice club atmosphere. We were promptly seated and served bread with typical oil/vinegar combo. Extensive wine list and menu. Main course comes with salad so no need to...More

My mother in law has been gone for at least 25 years and I have searched for a lasagna that tasted as good as hers. Enter Casanova and the search is over. The taste, texture and presentation took me back to the Best.
