Great Italian in the Middle of Maui

Stopped in here for their happy hour one day on a whim. It's hard to beat a $5 Mojito. We accompanied that with a delicious and authentic Caesar Salad and a Smoked Salmon pizza. Some of the staff seemed a little bored during our first visit but the food more than made up for it. It was all so... read more

You can't get much better than this unless you were in Italy and even then it's probably better than may farm to table restaurants even there. Delicious, reasonably priced and never disappointing.

We were there two times for dinner. First we had Pizza, second we had a meat and a fish dish. Both was really good, prices are fair, portions are big - for us too big to have an appetizer. There beer selection is good, the wine I cannot recommend, it is expensive and quality is mediocre, red wine was much... More

Tasty Italian food, on the high side of moderate pricing. Happy Hour is from 5-6 and carafes of margaritas, mojitos and house wine are only $5! The restaurant turns into a nightclub most nights, which offers a wide array of music and entertainment as well as some of the best people watching on island! Wednesday night is ladies night after...

This restaurant was bustling on a Friday night and we had to wait 25 minutes for a table as we hadn't pre-booked but it was well worth the wait! The food and service were really good, our last meal in Maui and one of the best. I had the PAGLIA E FIENO AI FUNGHI – home-made linguine with wild Italian... More

The place was bustling, for a Sunday night. There were plenty of options on the Italian style menu. I had the Rigatoni Beverly HIlls (chicken and broccoli in a vodka sundried tomato sauce), which was very well done. Our table had a bottle of Chianti ($48). The bread and oil for the table was very nice, fresh, and warm. Service... 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.
