Most Memorable Experience in Carmel by the Sea
Casa Nova has long been my favorite place for dinner in Carmel. It is a special place. I have always found the food to be above expectations, the setting a bit magical, and the service attentive and kind. Comments from the well-travelled, foodie friends who accompanied me were," This is the best gnocchi I have ever had!", and "Best meal of the trip".

This restaurant feels a bit like a maze, with small private rooms, off-shoots and a downstairs, cozy area. I like the upstairs, main room best, but all are cute.

Sadly, I have had issues with the wine experience here more than once. The wine list is overpriced, and the sommelier has been known to pressure to spend more. So go prepared, but don’t let it spoil an otherwise memorable evening.

{Note, there are two restaurant owners/ management companies in Carmel that own several restaurants each. Casa Nova is a sister to La Bicyclette, and Corkscrew- hence the similar websites and marketing materials- but their chefs are different and the good things carry through each of them}.
