Dinner at Casanova’s

IMG_0513

Okay, I know I baited you with that title. You expected me to tell you about one of the houses Casanova lived in in Venice. Alas, I am not in Venice at the moment, so Carmel in California will have to do.

This restaurant is named Casanova for no particular reason that I can see. It does serve mostly Italian fare, and it’s  a rather romantic setting, but that’s about it. But if you were a Casanovist, could you resist eating here, just, you know, because?

Notice the tree growing in the middle of the table (or is that the table with a tree growing through it?)

The view from our table. A little rain both dampened and brightened the evening.

We ordered the cheese plate–a bit pricey for three cheeses, a few nuts, and crackers, though the kumquat was a nice bitter touch. We were on a bitter streak and ordered the endive salad and then a mushroom ravioli to bring the flavor back to earth.

I was sorely tempted to steal this plate….

That’s me, but that’s not Casanova

Can’t get more picturesque than this!

    Your mention of the mushroom ravioli made my mouth water, put me out of my misery; what kind of sauce did you have them with? Regards
