Made a reservation because read other reviews that mentioned it would be a good idea. Glad we did otherwise wouldn't have been able to go. This restaurant is a small family owned business. I assume it's the owners that work there. We only ordered the roasted octopus as we went there for that. It was extremely tender and cooked very well. That's all we had and were full. The portions are quite large. The service is just the one lady and she was sweet. Overall excellent experience. They don't open until about 8pm and that's quite late for us to eat, but so glad we waited!

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.
