Casanova Restaurant Review

: Over the last quarter of a century, the proprietors of Casanova have carved out a niche as tastemakers and trend arbiters of the Central Coast. The restaurant's singular interior décor, world-class wine cellar and French-Med cuisine make it a must-visit for epicureans. Each night, a three-course dinner begins with assorted appetizers and bread, and continues with entrées such as osso buco or pork loin with celery root, apples, salsify and dandelion. Wine buffs should arrange for a personal, sommelier-led tour of the hand-dug cellar to view more than 30,000 bottles from around the world. For a truly special dining experience, reserve the Van Gogh room and sit at a table where the famous artist dined. Service is friendly and professional.
