Casanova's Italian Restaurant by the Sea - George Town, Grand Cayman

Good morning,

As I ended yesterday's post My Honey and I had just arrived on Grand Cayman and were on our way to Casinova's Italian Restaurant by the Sea with our friends, Martha and Russell.
We were seated outside on the porch with a perfect view of our ship at anchor in the harbor, Freedom of the Seas.
Russell and Martha have sailed with us several times before and we have become good friends.  You meet the nicest people on cruise ships.
 And, here we are, in front of the camera for a change.
 If you can read the small print at the front of this, uh, vehicle, you can see it says, "It's a boat."  I love it!  I've heard of water taxis, but never a water bus.
We watched the dive training just below the porch where we were seated.
 I can't say enough good about the meal we had here.  When the bread and wine arrived, I knew we were in for a special treat.  My Honey drank Italian sparkling water that the rest of us also shared.  So perfect!
 Warm bread, oil, and balsamic vinegar.  Oh, so good!
 I took Martha's advice and ordered the veal and pasta.
 Russell ordered spaghetti and meatballs to appeared to be enough for three people.
 And, then dessert....  Creme brulee. *sigh*
 My Honey chose tiramisu.
 Russell's chocolate concoction is what I'll order the next time we are there.  Chocolate is a food group, you know.
 This place is fantastic!  What a find!  Thanks so much to Russell and Martha for taking us here.
 This is a view of Casanova's from the sea side.  The area with the umbrellas is anotehr restaurant and partially hides the porch from this angle where we were seated use a little while earlier.  That umbrella area didn't hamper our view of the sea at all.

We will return!


Check out Watery Wednesday!

You are making me hungry! I would probably weigh a thousand pounds if I lived on a cruise ship.
So many wonderful foods.
It was nice to see a picture of you, too.

Hi Lois, it was fun dining at ANthony's, the Italian restaurant bin Bryson City, NC that you and Kjell enjoyed. This one looks wonderful, but we won't be able to go there anytime in the near future. Enjoy some of that dessert for us the next time! Yes, chocolate IS a food group.

Good morning,

Sherry, I would be delighted to send you some sunshine. Let's see, is that a .sun file? ;)

We are still floating around out here. Nedra, you are right about gaining weight. We have to be very, very careful. It's not easy, but we don't mind the challenge. Ha! Well, we don't mind until we start home and have to take off a few pounds.

Beatrice, I'm sure you enjoyed Anthony's in Bryson City. :)) I'll be able to check in on your and other blogs on Sunday when we are in a US port and I have enough bandwidth to get blogs and pictures to load. We have email 24/7, but I wait until Sundays for all the pictures.

Thank you so much, everyone, for stopping by and for your kind comments.

Very best,
