Casanova
Restaurants

Casanova

This offshoot of Casanostra turns out magnificent pizzas from its huge wood-fired oven. They're all great, from a simple napoletana to the Casanova, laden with cherry tomatoes, rocket and mozzarella di bufala. You can't book, but tables are shared and turnover is fast - diners catch waiters' attention by switching on a red bulb dangling above their table - even on the riverside terrace.
