We could have left after the foccaccia breat...it was very yummy. I enjoyed my pizza. Others in our party enjoyed their pasta but wished the portion was a little larger.

Great food,drinks & atmosphere in an Upcountry setting!! What could be more perfect?? Well, you could go there on a Tuesday night and enjoy a fabulous meal while listening and dancing to the Amazing Willie K.!!! Other than that I don't think you could do much better!! Do yourself a favor while in Makawao.Stop In!!

This place has terrific pasta-including the carbonara, lasagna. Calamari was also terrific. Service was great. It perplexes me that some have not liked this place, but as for us, it was great.

I found this restaurant accidentally in 2008 and had a delicious pasta in a sage cream sauce. I couldn't remember where it was located. IN 2013, I found it, but at the time, they weren't open for lunch. This trip to Maui, I knew where it was and we went for dinner. Not sure if I had the exact same... More

as soon as we walked in the door the aroma from the kitchen had me hooked. We were a party of six, and our reservation provided a large table with plenty of room around it. We started with appetizers, followed by fresh salad. We each had a separate entree - Italian dishes, menu specials, and pizza. The portions were large... More

We love that we can go and share a half carafe of Chianti for just $5 and enjoy some quiet conversation and a delicious meal so close to our home. Casanova has been a staple of our dining circuit for over 25 years.
