It has been a few years since we last dined at the Casanova and last night, during our return to Maui, we had dinner and it was great! Son had a 4 seasons pizza, and mixed salad; spouse a plentiful fish soup; and I had grilled pawns, delicious! The service was fast and courteous, the dining area large and ample,... More

Pasta is amazing. Lots of fun - the pizza looked good. Caesar salad was awesome! Our only complaint was that the bathrooms were dark, small, and dinghy. For such a great restaurant - they need to update and brighten the bathrooms.

if you are headed back down from the Haleakala crater and you are craving a little Italian food, Casanova's is a place I highly recommend. It is located in the small town of Makawao, which is a small cowboy community on the island of Maui. We went in for an early dinner but had made reservations before we went. It... More

A group of us attending a conference decided to drive up to Makawao to check out the old town's shops and get a bite for dinner. We enjoyed walking around this former sugar mill town, checking out some of the eclectic shops before choosing to dine at Casanova's. Our part of five was seated quickly, allowing us to order a...

We stopped at the deli side for lunch and the food and service were above average. The Greek salad was surprisingly good. I had the pastrami sandwich which was well made.

We were sad that our day in Makawao was rainy, but we found this friendly place on the main street that cheered us up.

My wife and I had dinner here on May 30, 2016 and again on June 5, 2016. Parking is scarce, service decent, and the ambiance nice, although it can be very noisy. For our first dinner, we started with a tasty shrimp appetizer (Gamberi E Fagioli) and then shared the Makawao pizza, washed down with Beringer White Zinfandel, and concluded... More

Stopped in here for lunch on Memorial Day. Little confusing where to enter as there is more than one door and no hostess stand at either location. Only two waitstaff working during the lunch visit but the service was good. Had sandwiches for lunch and they were tasty. Looks to have a large menu at both lunch and dinner.

Casanova was great. Excellent Italian food, much containing fish local fish and produce. Wine list was excellent and the service matched. Reminded me of fantastic food that I had in Italy. I highly recommend this place. The drive up country is very nice as well.
