Good food, good service

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... read more

We were visiting Leilani Farm Sanctuary and noticed Makawao as we zoomed through it on our way. I forced my husband to stop back in Makawao on a whim for dinner on our way back to our vacation condo because it looked like a cute area. We were so happy with Casanova. My picky son got to make his own... More

We stopped in Makawao Maui to check out some local art shops and decided to eat lunch. The place that we were told to try, the Bistro, was closed. We asked around and the locals suggested Casanova at the end of the street. Casanova's is a good sized Italian restaurant with great food at a good price. A full bar... More

Went to Makawao (30 min south of the airport) to check out the historic 'cowboy town'.While very quaint and interesting wasn't a whole lot to do there other than more gift shops and art galleries. Came upon the Cassanova for lunch and was quite pleased all around. Very good lasagne and clam linguini. Clean, good service. Appear to have live... More

We had just gotten a puppy who we named Casanova so naturally we had to try Casanova restaurant. We love Italian and their menu did not disappoint. We had the caesar salad and the Burrata Caprese to start and both were phenomenal. For dinner our waitress suggested the gnocchi and it was delicious. A very romantic atmosphere and our waitress...

If you’re looking for a GREAT Italian meal off the beaten path in Maui, I cant recommend Casanova’s highly enough. A bit pricey (but, hey, it’s MAUI) and a bit off the beaten path - however, it is some of the BEST Italian Cuisine I have ever had. The menu is far reaching, the atmosphere is tropical elegance, and the... More

We were amazed to find such an awesome, authentic Italian restaurant in the tiny town of Makawao, Maui! From fresh calamari (literally fresh from the ocean) to handmade pasta and incredible homemade desserts, we enjoyed a four course lunch that left our family of three barely able to waddle out the door...and we still had two to-go sacks! Of course,... More
