Your GPS device will probably lead you to the large parking space behind the building. You can gain entrance to the Restaurant both from Kaahumanu Avenue, where a large awning with the sign Bistro Casanova will guide you from the parking stalls to the front door, and from Lono Avenue, where a large sign shows the entrance from its main address: 33 Lono Avenue. In both cases, you'll have no problem in finding parking, day or night time. See you inside, where you'll be able to choose a table in the air conditioned dining

Very little frontage so you could miss this opportunity across from Maui Seaside Hotel. We had two spectacular pasta dishes and a “special Kaesar salad” ...yup Kaesar...not Caesar. So good. A little more expensive than other places but the quality is worth it!
