We were pleasantly surprised with first the service, and then with the meal. We had the Crab Napoleon and a Spinach Salad, both excellent, the pista gloria were the entrees, I had the Cioppino Brodetto, which was superb, my wife the Rib Eye Steak, a rarity as she would usually ask for something seafood. she was delighted with her selection....

I've been here several times but only for drinks. I finally ate something! While their sister restaurant, Bistro Casanova is way closer to where I live, the menu here is a little different. ATMOSPHERE: The open-air restaurant is plain and simple. Old interior that's a mixup of tavern, bistro and patio, but clean, which is what matters. The place turns... More

I didn't know there were 2 Casanova restaurants on Maui. My lamb chops were cooked dry with a slightly red center like they were cooked from a frozen state. The chocolate pie was served with runny whipped cream from a can.caprese salad was good. Would not eat there again

This is a review only for the Deli, NOT for the restaurant! We drove down from Haleakala from our hike into the crater. Each of us cared for a good breakfast. The potions were okay, there were a good choice of coffee and tea and lots of choices for breakfast. Everything is prepared fresh and fairly fast. We liked the... More

I live in Kihei, so it is a drive to this restaurant, but well worth it. Lots of pasta, great fish and pizza.

Hi Again All. My wife and I went there for breakfasts a couple of times. This place is known for its Italian lunches and dinners but it should be breakfast too. What a variety of California, Hawaiian and Italian foods for breakfast yet. We sat out on the street lanai and had a lovely view of town life. The kitchen... More

We went to this restaurant during a weekday for lunch. Wow! What a find in a funky little cowboy town (rodeo was going on that week). The restaurant is located on a busy intersection at the center of this little town and it is open air, so one warning is that the trucks rolling through town can be distracting if... More

Casanova is a nice restaurant serving homemade pasta, salads, and more. Located in Makawao, Maui a fun town in the upcountry region. Prices range from $14 to $32 for dinners, we had beers and dinner for two for less than $50 including a generous tip. Fast and friendly service, excellent food. Nunchucks next door at their bistro is equally excellent... More

Casanova has been on Maui for over 25 years and last week I had a great reminder why. I enjoyed a fresh Mozzarella pizza with vine ripened (Local) tomatoes slices and fresh basil with prosecute - a great bottle of wine - sweet crepes for dessert. all in all a great day
