Restaurant is in office building of bank. Not a desirable location. Food was HORRIBLE! None of our party of 5 liked their food. I had to send mine back twice and just ended up not eating at all. Incredibly overpriced for what it is.
I wouldn’t call it traditional Italian- it was good but a little pricey (but on the island everything seems pricey) it was also very hard to find- it is on the lower level of an office building. You have to park by the bank. They had a decent wine list but were out of a few. Portions were perfect. (The app won’t let me add photos but the plates were lovely)
Bistro Casanova is one of our favorite restaurants. We were happy to introduce our mainland friends to it. They enjoyed the experience and the food. I'm sure we will be returning.
Had another nice dinner here with a friend. We all had great food and the service was excellent.
Food was excellent, but the 1980's hard rock music that was very loud didn't fit with the Italian theme and was a distraction.
Thank you for noticing. I so agree with you! Your extra effort to share your experience motivated me to come down with an iron fist on the background music debate in my Restaurant. NO MORE HARD ROCK! It's a commitment.
We live in Tuscany. Meatballs are a separate dish. They are never combined with a bolognese sauce. Your meatballs are tasty and have perfect texture. IMO you don’t need to add them.
I am Italian and I feel your pain. For years I have been struggling with the moral Dilemma: "meatballs or not meat balls on the pasta with meat sauce? " Finally I succumbed to the overwhelming demand coming form my patrons. Will Italians ever forgive me? I barely do it myself....
A wonderful happy hour! Food and drinks were delicious as always! As the restaurant filled up, we saw our waitress less & less. Our water was refilled twice during the time we were there. When she did come, she was very on top of her game!
The restaurant is busy, we were spoiled during COVID and we could sit anywhere we wanted and service was quick. We love this restaurant and the food, so we will continue to come back. Patrick, the manager, always tries to accommodate us and even behind the mask you know he's smiling.
Excellent food! My son had the rigatoni carbonara that was beyond delicious; I had their checca with shrimp with their gluten free pasta. It was the most delicate able pasta dish ever! My husband ate their meatball with pasta and enjoyed every single bite. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. We were so full so took our desserts to go. Freshly baked that morning, we got the tiramisu and the flourless chocolate cake. Gluten free also.. OMG! The ganache on the flourless cake was Heavenly and the most delicious i ever had! Tiramisu was amazing too. What a gem found! Authentic and homemade italian food on the island. Wow! Highly recommend! A new favorite place to eat for us on Maui!
Thank you for sharing your appreciation for your experience at Bistro Casanova. Our young pastry chef is particularly grateful that her talents have been recognized. We hope yo see you soon back at Bistro Casanova.
Great food, service, and prices were completely fair. Would go back next time I’m on the island.
Arrivederci! See you soon back at Bistro Casanova in Kahului
Delicious tapa menu changes weekly. We look forward to tasting the new creations Chef has prepared. Manager Patrick and his staff, you can tell are all smiling behind their masks. This is our go to place for a fun evening.
Love the service And the food and the scenery thank you for a wonderful night
You are so welcome! Arrivederci. (See you soon back at Bistro Casanova)
The Host was very friendly and sat us quickly. He also delivered our food. We liked the table we sat at but didn't like the table of 10 people that sat across from us. They were really loud and walked around without their face mask.
We felt like our server didn't really pay much attention to us. We waited a little while for him to come and take our order. It felt like he was in a rush. That's basically the only thing he did.. take our order and maybe check on us twice after that. He was paying more attention to the big table. Another worker cleared our plates and took our dessert order then said she would give the order to our Server.
I ordered the fettuccine alfredo with chicken. Don't get me wrong, i love me some fettuccine alfredo, but it was a little bland in taste. My boyfriend ordered the rigatoni marinara and that was good! The desserts we ordered were good too.
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Bistro Casanova. We are looking into our Alfredo sauce preparations to add some "fire" to it, despite the fact that it's alreday one of our best seller. A large party often takes a lot of attention, especially if the pressure is to lower the volume and to enforce current regulations...not an easy task when patrons come from a State which has no mask mandate. I am glad that our team did the job, when your server was too busy to do it.
Went for a birthday dinner, wasn’t even offered the dessert menu after the main course. Luckily the main courses were good so we weren’t hungry for dessert
Terrible food. Terrible drinks had to sit at 2 tables they never mentioned that when reservations made
It is mandatory in Maui not to sit more than 5 guests at the same table, unless they belong to the same household. The Host asked if the group belonged to the same household and got a negative answer. He had to offer two tables. Not his choice. As it is our responsibility to remind patrons that they are required to wear masks when walking in the Restaurant. These events created an hostile environment which is the main cause of the dissatisfaction so eloquently expressed in this review.
We got a last-minute reservation after being out all day driving the road to Hana with lots of stops. We were a little leery pulling into the parking lot and seeing that it was in an office building, but were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the place! We’re not big fans of carpeting in restaurants but that was minor, once we tasted the appetizer: ahi tuna on black pasta chips, beautifully presented.
My entree also featured black linguine with smoked salmon in a cream and tomato sauce. The dab of salmon roe on top lead to several delightful bites of crunch
Our server was pleasant and professional and the wine choices were excellent and quite reasonable.
Thank you for your kind words...I am glad you did not let the office building prevent you form a great night out. Aloha.
Love the space and only wish they still offered a fish sandwich.
We'll keep your request under consideration when revising the current lunch menu. Thank you for your appreciation and for taking the time to express your preferences.
They were out of the wine we wanted as well as an entree I ordered. The sauce on 3/4 of eh entree was bland. Very small portions for the amount of food you get.
Outstanding all around, food, ambience, service. A special shout out to the host who volunteered to drive my credit card to the airport after I forgot it. That truly sets this place apart..we have found a new Maui favorite. The food equals that we found in Italy.
Thank you for sharing your experience at Bistro Casanova and thank you from our host for your generous tip. We are looking forward to hosting you again. Next time, don't leave behind your CC...:). Ciao.
What a great place. It has it all going on. The bread and dessert are outstanding along with everything else on the menu. We've been here a few times and the service is top notch. The baker came out for our review and asked for any suggestions. Our server, Heidi, went above and beyond. We will definitely continue coming here.
Thank goodness Bistro Casanova is in central Maui. There are so few choices of restaurants with consistently good food, reasonable pricing, and not the typical plate lunch style menu. Bistro C is all of this. Their happy hour offerings are great--good variety at good prices. Their wine by the carafe cannot be beat during happy hour, and the wine is good!
Salads are always fresh. I like the carbonara--it's the closest I've found stateside to true carbonara served in Italy.
Really like this place.
There was a bug
Celebrating my birthday and the staff Sis an excellent job. Very good service too. Thanks!
Sat outside for lunch due to pandemic, table was kind of old and beaten up. Service was slow. Ordered calamari appetizer and had to send it back-tasted like rubber. Martini was just ok, not much flavor. Ordered angel hair pasta dish. It came with a salad but the salad came after the entree and was dry, had to ask for more dressing. Pasta dish had good flavor but was also dry. Overall, a disappointment.
Portions were good, although the taste needed some spice. Desert was standard and the service was good.
Early Valentine lunch
Fabulous perfect delicious as always
Best Italian dining on Maui🇮🇹
My husband and I shared the fish dinner with ahi tuna, shrimp, scallops, lobster and vegetables. We really enjoyed it in addition to the generous wine servings at happy hour!
The clam sauce was great, same with the Keasar. The Bolognese and the Alfredo could’ve used a little bit more flavor or salt, was a little on the blan side, but still good to finish the entire bowl. The service was great and the waitress lyric was very knowledgeable about the menu, and she had a fun attitude.
The food was average in taste and quality....the calamari appetizer was more dough than squid, the “Kaupo” (greens salad with steak slices) had to too much dressing which made the lettuce soggy and limp. The dessert on the other hand was excellent....strawberry cheese cake.
The service was great throughout the meal, the ambiance was mellow...possibly due to the fact that we were the first customers in and only a few tables coming in later.
I believe that the average food taste and quality was an anomaly as I dine here on a consistent basis...the food is usually really good to excellent.
Our waiter was very professional very informative & direct he was a pleasure.
The food looked appetizing but was very bland had no flavor would not recommend
Really great staff -- as was the food! We ate here prior to our flight home -- less than 10mins from the airport.
Our waiter was very helpful in helping us choose our entrees. The food was really, really good. We sat outside and so the ambiance was good. Would certainly recommend this to anyone.
Great Great service. Food was good and plentiful. It was a a little too dark to see the menu so I had to use my phones flashlight but still it was a great night. Highly recommended
Our Italian waiter was excellent. I asked for several accommodations and he quickly responded. Outdoor dining is available. Salad is included with your meal. Good was amazing. I had the most delicious gluten free pasta. Good portions. Enough for leftovers.
Wonderful birthday dinner at Casanova. The food was delicious and the service was very prompt and attentive. Highly recommend.
New to the area and looking for good local dining. Excellent service, great happy hour, nice presentation and delicious food!
Food looks good and taste great. Ordered NY steak & lobster as well as Paella which was excellent
The food here was outstanding and perhaps because of COVID, we sat outside near an alley to the building. Service was excellent and the food was authentic and beautifully served. Would definitely come back and perhaps request indoor seating.
We met the owner at her gallery in Makawao. So we tried it. Fantastic not close to Kihei but so worth it. Our waitress was terrific.
