I really enjoyed the low key nature of this family run restaurant in Calvi
The food was excellent, delicious, authentic and generous. The octopus and the sardines are a highlight

Very small and cozy place, probably 10 tables in total. It doesn't look very fancy when you have a look from the street but you should give it a try. We had a roasted octopus, sardines and plate of Corsican cheese. Octopus was really good, lovely grilled vegetables served with it. Sardines were also very good but be sure you like sardines - strong flavor :) Cheese plate to finish made the whole experience very pleasant.

After reading all the positive reviews we went for lunch at U Casanu. It was totally disappointing. The biggest issue I had was lack of cleanliness. Never again.

It is a challenge to not eat well in Calvi if you stay away from the tourist traps but this little, charming Corsican restaurant is worth a visit but highly recommend booking in advance. We ate there twice and tried roast octopus, fish cous cous, veg fritters, veal ragout, roast lamb, all fabulous. Warning portions are large so you might want to split a starter. I cannot more highly recommend a visit.

On our last visit at the start of September, sardines were not in the menu. We loved them when we visited 10 years ago and this restaurant was top of our list to return to.

We visited again one lunchtime at approx 1.15, sadly we were turned away as they were no longer serving. We were now determined! Next day, we were there at 12 o'clock on the dot and were delighted to get a table. By 12.45, diners were being turned away (despite there being a couple of tables vacant). I don't blame them to be honest, they clearly do what they do very well and don't need to pack people in on a conveyer belt, your table is yours for the duration of your meal.

We chose from the 20 euro menu, octopus salad and charcuterie to start, both excellent. We both had sardines for our main course, they were absolutely delicious, as good as we remembered from 10 years ago. Cheese and cheesecake rounded off a delightful lunch.

Highly recommended, just get there at 12 for lunch!
