I always like to try and fit in a visit to Casanova’s when I visit Cardiff and managed to sneak in another visit this time around! Family run authentic (very good) Italian, excellent wines and great service. Love this place; will be back!

Excellent, good value restaurant with friendly, helpful staff. The food (sardines and porchetta) was very tasty. There was a short and interesting wine list.

With an underwhelming appearance from the outside don’t be fooled. The food here is excellent - traditional Italian with some imaginative twists. The service is very helpful and friendly and very good value for money.
