If you love food, come here.

4 1/2 stars represents this wonderful restaurant. Service was fine and the look of the restaurant was nice and I think perfect for the beautiful town it's in...Makawao. My wife went safe with the spaghetti and meatballs and it was wonderful. I know...really?...spaghetti and meatballs? Yes... read more

I skip the dinner menu and go straight for the pizza. hard to beat. they have great happy hour drink specials, and lots of live entertainment in the evenings. I also love their deli for breakfast and lunch. service is usually great, and they definitely LOVE when you make reservations!

Sooo delicious! Real Italian food, wood ovenfired pizza, great sauces, pasta, fish and usually really good service. Always a favorite for us when dining in Makawao.

Last night we had something to celebrate, and wanted to try out a restaurant new to us. I am so glad we went to Casanova's in Makawao! The food was unbelievably delicious, and the menu was extraordinary in its innovative but thoroughly Italian offerings. No mundane place, this! What a great experience! We left happ and well fed.

We've stayed wih local friends at the Casanova Italian Restaurant. While the food was very good (wonderful Pizza at a reasonable price), our waitress had either a very bad day or was just unattentive ... We didn't get our ordered focaccia (we only got balsamico and vinegar), we had to order our drinks twice and it took ages until they... More

we had a good meal and very pleasant staff. If, you like wine and a good meal this is the place to go. The bathroom was like a barn , though. Don't see why they cant improve that!!!!

We had an early dinner at Casanova. I had angle hair pasta with shrimp & tomatoes, which was nice; hubby had lasagna, which he said was "fair only," as it had more cheese and less sauce than he likes. The HUGE salad we shared was very good, as was the focacia bread. As we were there during happy hour, our... More

Great basic Italian food with a family friendly atmosphere if you go close to the beginning of dinner service (5:30). Shop at nearby boutiques before dinner for a relaxing afternoon and evening.

We were biking down Haleakala (with Maui Sunriders) and stopped in Casanova's for a little breakfast. It was the perfect place to stop because they opened early, their food was delicious, the coffee made me happy, and being able to sit outside was just what we wanted.

I had the clam linguine, and my wife the risotto both very good. The service was also very good with friendly staff. We had creme brûlée and coffees all good. The let down, the place needed a refurbishment. Holes in the carpet in one area and the gents was left to be desired with rotting wood surrounds. But don't let... More
