Bistro Casanova is smooth, elegant, exquisite and fun. A tropical landscaping refreshes the air surrounding the outside al fresco tables. Bistro Casanova offers Mediterranean fare, its roots coming from the Cinque Terre in Italy where the owner comes from. Its menu reaches some classic of the European cuisine: Paella for two, Cioppino, Focaccias, Grigliata plates of grilled meat or fish large enough to share, prime cuts of steaks are between the favorites, next to an excellent selection of pastas and fresh salads. Locally grown ingredients are used extensively, as well as the freshest fish from Maui's ocean. Bistro Casanova is a favorite for Happy Hour relaxation, watered by specialty martinis and carafes of mojito and margaritas.
Tapas (available after 4pm) can be a tasty complement to your drinks, an opening line for your dinner, or dinner itself. At dinner, Bistro Casanova is a romantic destination for meals before a show or the perfect stop before flying out of Maui.

We went for my birthday and it was great. Because of Covid they had tables spaced apart. The braised lamb with fettuccine was great (except for peas). My husband had their Spaghetti Bolognese and Italian Meatballs. The service was terrific. We would gladly go again. Plus we received a 20% discount as they were running a special in June.

Couple of friends and I enjoyed our dinner here a few nights ago. My child enjoyed their pasta (they don’t have a kids menu, but made up a smaller portion at request). My one friend didn’t have enough marinara sauce in her pasta and we tried to find someone to assist us with getting it fixed. After about 8 minutes we finally saw our server and explained the situation. She my friend’s order back to the kitchen and got it remedied. We were happy and content after that. My daughter enjoyed her meal and so did I. Dessert was great the flourless chocolate mousse was heaven! I look forward to another get together here!

Ribeye steak was overcooked and tough. The fish of the day meal...Mahi Mahi was also overcooked and very firm. Not flakey or juicy. What really surprised me was how dirty the windows were. Seems like a restaurant like Casanova's would pay particular attention to cleanliness. Casanova's needs someone who knows how to run a restaurant.

Although the restaurant was super slow, service was even slower. Our reservation was for 6:45 pm, we didn’t get out of the restaurant until almost 10 pm, not by choice. Ordered 4 surf and turfs .. one steak we order medium, it came out rare which we sent back to the kitchen to be cooked, it was bleeding all over the plate. What was even more bizarre is our waitress left for the evening without even telling us thank you or good bye... and because we had an 8 top, she was tipped out over $100... it will probably be awhile before we go back, hoping the food and service gets better!! On a positive note, our busser was awesome!

Thank you for taking the time to share your disappointment. Your remarks help us improve. The wrong temperature of the steak happens - and we do not want it to happen - as cooks tend to stay on the rare side (quickly correctable). The miscommunication with our server has been addressed. Our Floor Manager reassured me that after a long conversation with one Lady in your group he felt that your guests were pleased by their experience. We hope to see you back sooner rather than later. Aloha.

I love this place, great food, great cocktails, great friendly service that will go out of their way to please if you let them know what you would like. Wife and I ordered a few tapas and were pleasantly full, great way to try a bunch of flavors. Looking forward to bringing a group so we can order everything and have a big share fest for the menus items I didn’t get a chance to eat.

Main dishes, especially the lamb chops, were done very well. Cooked to ordered degree, it was a display of a pro. ( I am a pro). Dish was hot, very well presented, appealing visually as well.
Deserts, the two crepes choices, were very poor. Both items were cold, presentation poor, taste unacceptable. Should have tried the mousse and the tiramisu instead.

When we arrived at the restaurant we had to wait for the host for 10 minutes. When he finally showed up we told him we had a reservation for three for 6:15. We were right on time. He told us that they were overbooked that it was Open Tables for overbooking the restaurant. We will never go back to that restaurant. If Open Table overbooked Shane on you!

I wish to personally apologize for your experience at Bistro Casanova. We were disconnected from the Internet for several hours on Friday afternoon . When finally we were able to connect, a flood of reservations came thru the Open Table tablet and suddenly we were overbooked. Without any fault of yours', you arrived at the wrong time, when no table was available for the next 45 minutes. Once again, I can only sympathize with your frustrations.

Just horrible! We go there for happy hour often. But this time was awful. They were out of three things we ordered, no big deal. But the server tried to bring out the Neri salmon with white pasta and pull it off. We called it out and said that wasn’t what we ordered but we had waited over 30 mins and were starving. Told the server. The manager never came to our table despite her saying he’d come by. They charged us for everything as was. We’d pay for what we ordered but it wasn’t what we ordered and the manager was so smug about it all. We are so insulted. Manager was rude and server too. Choices are limited in Town so of course we will return but are so sad about the state of this restaurant. Not worth the price AT ALL.
