NO. Keep driving, don't even look back. If you dare to ignore my first words, then at least read my review: I am really easy to please. If the food is good, and the service is good, I will give a nice review. If you have a nice atmosphere and a view, I will give you a really good review... More

Yummy sandwiches (vulcano and a basic turkey on 7 grain bread) and crisp fresh salads. Beware - the greens salad is just that- - greens (i.e., green leaf lettuce) and nothing but greens. Not a wisp of a tomato, pepper, cucumber, celery or anything else, but the dressing was yummy. As a deli, order @ counter, fetch your food and... More

Fresh bread with balsamic vinegar and olive oil while you wait for your entree's. Try the pizza for the kids or the gnocchi! Wonderful!

We both had pasta dishes for lunch and they were excellent. Sometimes spicy dishes can be overdone, but these were perfect. The service was attentive and the prices reasonable. Went on the recommendation of a long time resident and wasn't disappointed.

If the meaning of casanova is something to do with a man who is amorously and gallantly attentive to women well this Casanova is a definite casa-NOT. Lousy waitress - we waited to be acknowledged when we arrived, service was slow, our waitress was terrible. There was one lady who was not our waitress but attentive. Food was bland. Best... More

We didn't realize it was a fancy restaurant until we went in. White tablecloths and beautiful decor. Fortunately for us it was Happy Hour so our drinks were cheap and plentiful. A carafe of Mai Tai or of wine were only $5 each! The Spinach Gnocchi with both red and white sauce was reasonably priced for a fancy place here... More

We had dinner twice in this little restaurant in a small town on Maui called Makawao, very near Pukalani. It is in the beautiful hills and is worth the drive. The service is prompt and friendly. The food is great. And if you get there in time for Happy Hour, you get a generous carafe of wine, or Margueritas, or... More
