“Ciao Bella” is the warm and welcoming Italian greeting awaiting you at Cayman’s longest standing Italian waterfront restaurant, Casanova Ristorante.  

On entering Casanova (affectionately referred to by locals as Casanova’s) you are immediately transported to the heart of Italy with an inviting ambience that embraces you, combined with authentic Italian décor and a choice of stunning waterfront dining views from inside, on their covered patio or, right on the waters’ edge. There is also a private dining room upstairs with open air patio perfect for events.

Casanova’s wait-staff are known for their charm and attentiveness as well as boasting a fast and efficient service, offering a genuine experience of Italian hospitality. 

Their extensive lunch and dinner menus allow diners to choose from an array of tempting home-made traditional Italian pasta dishes and wide range of pizzas that cover all the Italian favorites and more, with the option to create your own pasta or pizza.  They are also well-known for their mouthwatering fresh seafood selection and an abundance of tempting Italian cuisine favorites that will keep you coming back for more. 

In keeping with the true spirit of Italian cuisine in combining a limited number of fresh ingredients for ultimate taste and enjoyment, my recommendation as a must-try at Casanova’s is the Insalata Caprese, which is fresh local tomatoes and mozzarella slices served with a pesto, extra virgin olive oil dressing… buon appetite!

Casanova’s is open 7 days a week from 11:00am-10:00pm Monday – Saturday and from 5:00pm-10:00pm on Sundays.  Children’s menu available.
