Food's tasty, service very good. It's nice that it was easy to adjust a few orders to to suite our needs..ex: olive oil instead of butter, omitting certain foods adding others.
Some times it's a little noisy and feels closed in. but all the positives of the restaurant make up for it.

Must go to Place
Excellent Italian restaurant! Reservations are a must! Seems like a long way but really 10 - 15 minutes from the Airport. Maybe 25 minutes from Kihei.
Oso buco was excellent and spinach salad to die for.

We were ushered right in at our reservation time, and were shown to a very nice table. The view out the back window was into a very colorful and delightful garden area. The food was well-prepared and presented, and I really enjoyed the appetizers (4 different bite-sized ones at each place-setting). Portions were just right and tasty.

Food was really good. Spaghetti and meatballs were great, meatballs are homemade. Caesar salad was really good.

Awesome always, it was busy...fathers day. Food is always great and kids get to make their own pizza! We always request sitting down near the dance floor so kids can dance. (Turns into a dance spot late night on weekends) I recommend Casanova to anyone that appreciates a good Italian meal, home cooked, great fresh fish....

Delicious and filling
We had a wonderful dinner at Casanova's. We hadn't been there for a few years, but we were happy to see that the quality is still the same. The only complaint I have is that our reservation was at 7:30. We arrived at 7:25. The hostess greeted us and said we would have to wait about 15-20 minutes for a table. We waited for about 15 minutes. No one left while we were standing there, but when we were seated we saw at least 5 tables for 4 available. So, why make us wait? Other than that, we had a wonderful experience. Jess was our waitress and she was wonderful. The pizza was delicious as well as the lasagna. My father had a steak that he truly enjoyed while my mom dined on veal and said it was delicious. We will go back again!

A good meal
It was very convenient to be able to reserve a table online. The whole experience was very pleasant. I live on the Big Island, but come home to Maui to visit when I can. I will certainly come again.

Another great meal at Casanova
We were seated immediately. The server was great. Four nice meals. Strong drinks. The Kula Strawberry dessert surprised me being warm, but very good. Fourth time here, won't be the last!

Food was excellent, portions ample, and the wait staff fantastic. Went here on a recommendation of another vacationer, the whole experience exceeded our expectations. Would highly recommend this restaurant, even the surrounding area is fun, and a welcome break from the heat down on the shore. Mahalo

Casanova is a must if your are in the area. Great Italian food. Delicious pasta and pizza. If we return to Maui, we will definitely return to Casanova.

A sure thing
I'm embarrassed to say I have not been to Casanova's in ages. We organized a group of upcountry friends to met us since it they were donating a portion of their sales to the Maui Aids Foundation. Great neighbors, they help fund raise for a number of organizations. Had great drinks and a well priced bottle of wine. Food was outstanding. A couple had a Russian potato beet salad they could not stop talking about. I had Gamberi e Fagioli. A skewer of six fat shrimp on a bed or cannelloni beans. Outstanding. The seafood risotto was excellent, the fish en papillote got a few swoonsAll in all, it was a wonderful evening in a terrific restaurant. I won't wait for an "event" to go back but will put it back on my "Eat Here Ofen" list!

As visitors to Maui many times we eat out often. We decided to try this restaurant for the first time. We've passed it often in Makawao. While nondescript on the outside, it's really nice inside. The food was surprisingly good, as we've read some so-so reviews online. Try the spinach saltiti appetizer. Excellent. I had the Fettucine with scallops which was really good. The scallops were delicious.. The fettucine was fine, although maybe a bit heavy on the pesto. My wife had pasta with shrimp, very tasty.
We'll go back.

Good food again
I absolutely look forward to eating here whenever I'm on Maui. The food is consistently good and the service is reliable. It's easy to make online reservations. Parking can be challenging, but it's worth it.

We had an enjoyable dinner with friends. The noise from the adjoining bar I believe at the start of our meal, 7pm or so, was so loud that it was difficult to have a comfortable conversation. Otherwise, the food was good.

This was our first time and we thought it was very good. We tried it because the steak house was closed. But all 6 of us really enjoyed it and all decided we would definitely return.

Had lunch and dinner there a week apart. Food excellent!!!! Service friendly. Casual yet with an aire of island elegance.
Well located amid the many shops and art galleries at Makawao, Maui.
