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

We drove to Makawao on an 'explore'. We found it hard to find a place to eat lunch - the place we had researched out was full to overflowing and we weren't prepared to wait. We finally came across the Casanova and while Italian isn't our favourite, we were glad to have someone give us a table and food! We... More

So we went in here for happy hour which includes a red wine and a white wine on discount. We got there at minute 1 of happy hour. They were out of the normal happy hour red wine. So we asked if they would trade for a different one (I think that's customary... it was the beginning of the day,... More

Walked in around lunch time and stood at the front waiting to be seated or helped. People looked at us but no one asked to seat us. We figured we caught them between lunch and dinner but we were confused. We walked around to the cafe side and thought we would be helped there. After looking at the cafe selections... More

While in Maui, we were taken to Casanova for a delightful meal - mainly their linguine with mushrooms and chicken - and we were not disappointed. We had the lunch special and the portions were large and it also came with a very nice size salad and brownies for dessert. We were with a group and even though we were... More

Macawao is worth the drive - just get there before 6pm if you want to wander the shops as they all close as one somewhat rude shop owner pointed out as we walked in at 555pm! We won't name them and will give them the benefit of the doubt. That said it's a great little town with some really nice... More
