tucked away although still on a main road, this is the place in Kahului area. Great food, consistantly good service and terrific happy hour. Try the squid ink pasta none other like it. They also just added lobster to the menu, perfectly cooked. Definately worth the trip in to town.

The restaurant was upbeat and friendly. The staff was awesome. Definitely the place to eat when close to the airport! Couldn't have asked for a better meal. Service was outstanding.

A pleasant surprise
Stopped into this restaurant near the airport in Kahuli to spend some time before our flight and was greeted by a very fun and friendly host (who may have been the owner). We were then treated to one of the all time excellent servers (her name escapes me, but she is a young blonde woman, sweet and present and knowledgeable.) The food exceeded my expectations, and I would definitely recommend.

One of our best meals in Hawaii
My husband and I made a reservation at Bistro Casanova because of it's proximity to the airport on our way out of Maui. It is off a very busy road and in a mini mall type area. We were not expecting too much since it was not on the long list of recommendations in Maui. We were shocked at how good the food was! One of our best meals in Maui. Decent prices, good portions, and very fresh and flavorful food! Definitely a spot were the locals frequent (as the restaurant was packed on a friday night) and you can tell why! Don't miss out on this gem while you in the Maui airport area.

Divine dining experience
We had wonderful dinner here. Service and food was absolutely great! I had the bouillabaisse. Excellent! For dessert, try the banana nutella filled crepe. Yum. We WILL be back!

Hit all the right notes
Casanova was just right. Fast, friendly service. Very tasty food (spaghetti and meatballs, chicken cacciatore, caesar salad). Good cheap carafe of red wine ($10). Close to Kahalui airport so, convenient to dine, return rental car and check-in. Bar was active. We sat in back room - quieter. Also outside tables available. Print directions map or make sure you have a good Kahalui map - streets are not strictly grid with lots of angles. I reserve my excellent stars for EXCELLENT so you can rely on my Very Good stars as being Very Good (which is still high marks in my book).

Found this restaurant online and stopped for dinner before the red-eye back to the mainland. In our group of 6 everyone had something different and it was all wonderful. The meatballs were wonderful, catch if the day cooked to perfection, and scallops were the best ever. Wonderful Maui dining experience.

Service Needs Improvement
Entering the front door, you are greeted by the bar. Had to search to find restaurant check in. Standing by the check in area, staff seemed to ignore my prescience and they took a while to greet me. After being seated, it took a long time for the waiter to come over. Another minute and I would have walked out.
The mushroom and capers on a crostini was okay. The Kula salad was good. The bouillabaisse was great! The tiramisu was also excellent.
When paying the bill, the waiter brought back the wrong change.
Overall the service could stand a lot of improvements.

Lived up to the hype
Coming to Maui I had heard about this restaurant and how I must try it. It was recommended to me that it I go, I should order the daily special, as they're always great.
Well I went to this restaurant and I ordered the special (mahi mahi in curry sauce with pineapple salsa). It ended up being one of the better meals I've had in a long time, and considering I usually don't order/enjoy fish, I was surprised how great Ito was.

Maui No Ka Oi
Great dining experience for a restaurant located in Kahului. The food was good and so was the service. The hostess and wait staff very friendly and accommodating. We look forward to our next dining experience at Bistro Casanova!!

Exactly as described
Very good Italian food. Very attentive service. Ambience is nice inside. The location is in a commercial area vs. on the beach but that was expected.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was reasonably priced. Especially for the quality. Oddly enough, they were out of filet Mignon. The Bouillabaisse was very good, as was the rib-eye and lamb. The Marsala wild mushroom topping was excellent. In fact the quest gets a choice of 5 self-applied toppings for the meat dishes. Wonderful, all good choices. No vegetable dishes worth speaking of with the exception of the home made scalloped potatoes, which were excellent. Not cheesy, little salt. Just right for a side.

Excellent pasta dinners. I
Excellent pasta dinners. I like the varied selection. I had the ravioli and my husband had the pasta with lamb. We split a Kula salad. Service during our multiple visits has been superb. For a quieter experience, ask to be seated in the back room. My only recommendation would be somewhat more varied options for affordable chardonnay wines. There was only one and it was a little lack luster.

Had a dinner and recently a lunch and both times the food was excellent. Pasta was perfectly cooked and sauces were perfect. Loved the salad and service was pleasant and knowledgeable. Will definitely dine here again and highly recommended.

The best restaurant in Kahului. Not much competition in the area, but the food is very good.

Bistro Casanova in Wailuku
Bistro Casanova in Wailuku is just about the only fine dining that we have found in Wailuku. But even if it had competitors, we would still call it a favorite Central Maui restaurant. You don't go there for the view as it is set back from the road in a commercial strip. But you definitely Do go there for the food. A primarily Italian cuisine, the menu offers a tempting arrqy of options. We usually enjoy one of several pasta dishes or the paella for two (delicious, tangy, and generously spiked with shellfish, mussels and bits of fish) and for dessert, a yummy Affogatto. The wait staff and manager are always cordial and make you feel glad you chose to dine with them.
Yep...we just keep going back because we are never disappointed.

Tapas menu was awesome! Great variety and food was delicious. The regular menu also had good Italian variety of food. The bar was very busy with every seat taken. This was not a place for a quiet dinner, i'll be back soon.

Went to Bistro Casanova to celebrate a birthday. The paella was delicious but a little on the salty side. The price was amazing since the dish serves two. The complementary birthday dessert was outstanding. Overall experience was great but the service was a little slow. Make sure you allow yourself enough time to eat. I recommend Bistro Casanova for dinner and will definitely return when I'm back in Maui next year.

Supreme Tapas Menu
The tapas menu was exquisite. Everything was tasty, the steak kebabs and the tempura artichoke were divine. The fish special was good too! I'll be back soon.
