Good food and excellent service.
It was a friend’s birthday so we celebrated at Bistro Casanova. We have grown to expect good quality food, delightful servers and a pleasant environment. We were satisfied in all respects on this occasion. Server Tabitha was cheerful and efficient in answering questions and bringing our orders in a timely manner. We ordered the delicious tempura roll appetizer and surf and turf and the boulliabase as our main courses, Yum! Thank you, Bistro Casanova, for consistently being our best “Go to Restaurant” in Central Maui!!
We were seated quickly. Our server was accommodating and the food was hot and delicious.
Your portions of the food were very small for the price!
I ordered a crab cake appetizer for $16.00 and it had only one crab cake!
My son ordered the lamb chops and he said the taste was terrific but left the restaurant hungry.
Our pastas were also very small portions!
Great surprise find in town! We had been to the location in Makawao but were pleasantly surprised at how different this location is compared to the other one, however still maintain the same level of quality. We both ordered the pasta dishes, and both were generous servings that we enjoyed.
One had lamb and the other was carbonara and they didn't skimp on the main appeal of the dish (lamb and bacon respectively). We also ordered a salad which was large enough for us to share. The restaurant is located right in the middle of town, but it's set up so that it's a nice little respite in a busy area. We're looking forward to coming back!
Bistro Casanova is fantastic! My husband is Italian and he could vouch for the authenticity of the food. The Terramiso is fabulous. We went there three times while we were visiting Maui.
Great place for dinner near the airport. We had a 9PM flight out of Maui and this restaurant is perfect for getting closing to the airport so you can enjoy a meal and not have to worry about missing your flight. I had the spaghetti and meatballs and it was served nice and hot and tasty. Our server was very good.
Made a reservation and drove a half hour from Kapalua only to be told they just seated a party of 32 and it would be quite a while before I could be served dinner. The host actually encouraged me to find another restaurant- which I appreciated because at least she was honest about the situation. She asked the chef if he/she could squeeze me in and was apparently told no. What’s the point of securing a reservation if the restaurant won’t honor it?
Pleasant ambiance, good food, and good service. We enjoyed our meal!
Unexpectedly great find in Kahului. Easy walking distance from nearby hotels. A delectable dinner with great service. Nice ambiance. Recommended for a couples and groups.
the bouillabaisse was weak. The shrimp angel hair pasta was excellent, drink good, there was a noisy a/c unit next to us so abidance was so-so. service was good
I had the Paiea before and loved it, maybe will have that the next time
We overheard our waiter tell the table next to us that his “real job” was in construction, that explained a lot as he was not the friendliest or most efficient and pretty rough around the edges. Not anxious to go back to this restaurant because of this experience with our waiter. I don’t know if he was needing to make extra money but he should stick with his construction job. Not attentive, took forever if we wanted something more at our table. It seemed when we didn’t order alcohol and stuck with water we became a very low priority.
Portions were small and pricy. My pesto pasta had very little pesto.
Bang for the buck, the best meal i had on Maui during my holiday!
One of the best happy hour specials with a great tasting Mojitos
The menu is consistent specifically the lobster salad which is my go to. Fresh, flavorful and filling. The service is energetic and Jose is always a joy to see as he serves and knows just when to clear the dishes.
Service was attentive and pleasant. Food came really fast. Place was very busy before a concert, with the Maui Arts Center only a few minutes away. Took a while to get the check but well within reason.
Amazing....food was so delicious!
Came for our wedding anniversary and first time in Maui. As Italians, wanted to check it out. Not an ideal venue, but the food was good. Welcomed by the manager, which was nice. Many food items were overpriced and our waiter Pietro was extremely rude when realizing we didn't want any drinks or an appetizer. He was very short with me and my wife, which I didn't care for, and we briefly saw him throughout the meal. We will not be back.
Nice dinner out with friends. Always get consistently good food here. Service great as well.
Everything was excellent! We celebrated our anniversary and they gave us a tiramisu to celebrate! It was special.
Our server seemed bothered that “we came for happy hour”, never checked in on us and alway seemed put off by any request. He spent more time running things for his inside tables that came after happy hour.
The food was good
The Cajun chicken sandwich was the best I've ever had!!!
Went there for my girlfriends after conference wrap party held at UH Maui campus that she co-chaired with 4 other Health Care Professionals. The friendly service for the drinks was fast and consistently good. After a. While we said our Aloha’s to the others and the two of us went into the back dining area where we were seated next to the cute water feature. The two of us had the best time ever celebrating our 5 year anniversary and her birthday. The restaurant provided us with great service, tasty drinks, delicious food and a wonderful memory. A perfect ending to a perfect day!
I've really enjoyed the food and received great service each time I've eaten here. My favorite restaurant for special treat meals.
Our waiter was awesome. He was very engaged with our table. Great service.
Bistro Casanova is a favorite spot for us, every time we are in Central Maui...which is usually for a performance at the MACC or the Iao Theatre. We enjoy the small but just right size of this friendly restaurant, the wonderful and varied menu ( seafood, chicken, beef, vegetarian) and reasonable prices. The wait staff are Always courteous, and helpful. Thank you, Anthony! There is no glorious view here, but the inside is pleasant and the back room has a waterfall. We highly recommend BC!
Bistro Casanova is a great lunch spot: good food, pleasant ambiance and service. Sadly, the best waitress,
Kate, is gone.
Petro is excellent! Food delicious! Lovely & joyous experience!
Kayla our server was attentive and served us our drinks and skillfully and confidently answered our questions about the Mojito and Margarita sugar content. Our lobster salads were consistent and never disappoints!
While some of our party were given the happy hour menu, I wasn't and didn't know about it. The food was good and the service was satisfactory. The waitress was friendly. We would go again.
Super fast service even during busy dinner hour.
NEVER judge a person by the way they dress. The mister was in surf shorts and a t shirt & I was in jeans skirt w/a blouse. We were not drabby dressed or disheveled looking. Comfortably dressed.
(STRIKE ONE) It took more that 5 minutes to be acknowledged at the hostess stand. Not one person smiled or mentioned that someone would be with us in a moment. Even the employees that were huddled at the bar seen us...I made contact with a few. No one acknowledge us. They seemed too busy or occupied in their conversation.
(HUGE STRIKE TWO) My server felt that she should serve and give fantastic service those that was dressed nicely & seated AFTER me. There was only ONE other party seated in the section we were in prior to us arriving and the other was seated about 10 minutes after we sat. She decided to serve the party that seated after us before us. It took her 15 minutes since we sat to finally acknowledge us & take our drink orders. She was about to step away I mentioned we were ready to order our food also...her answer..."Oh...I didn't think you were ready." After 15 minutes of sitting, yes we were ready.
(STRIKE THREE) Our order consisted of 3 tapas & an entree. My boyfriend just wanted tapas (calamari, clams & mussles in white wine and frites). I was hungry for their linguine el fungi with chicken. The frites sat awhile on the warmer, the clams and mussles were rubbery & the calamari was soggy-ish. This meant it was made & sat on the warmer for a bit before arriving at our table. While I witnessed bread baskets passed by we were never offered. Once my entree arrived I asked our server if I had a bread arriving. "Oh... you wanted bread? Ok" While everyone else got a full basked. I got a basket with 2 dried out taro rolls & 2 cardboard choking hazard bread.
I've frequented this establishment many times before & was absolutely disgusted with the service. The fairer skinned, light haired was given exceptional service.
Lovely last final meal before departing to the airport home. Had a bit of difficulty locating the restaurant as it was in a non-description mall near a bank. But decor and interior was very nice. While the fare is predominantly Italian, the seafood Paella was excellent. Service was friendly and attentive (thanks Razi). Happy hour drinks were great and loved the flavour of the tiramisu. Highly recommended.
I almost always have their pasta dishes and they are usually tasty and well prepared. They come with a Caesar salad. I think of their pasta as Italian Italian food versus American Italian food. For example, there's a black linguini with a spicy marinara sauce with seafood. One of my favorites. Then there's the angel hair pasta with pinenuts and spinach. And another favorite is the linguine with pesto with shrimp. All in all, their food is good to great and almost always satisfying to this foodie.
Our first night in Maui we wanted something close to our hotel by the airport. This place was recommended by our hotel. The service was excellent, but we found the food lacking in flavor and were not impressed at all. We should have known not to eat Italian food in Hawaii!
Always Outstanding and Food Always on Point! The Mojito’s Fabulously Delicious!!
Enjoy coming in for lunch and dinner at least once a month. Gluten free options are plentiful. Quack salad is a must and gf pasta selections are great (if in stock). Great happy hour and friendly staff make for a pleasurable experience every time i visit.
The Lobster salad may have brought us back initially, but it's really the service - It was Kamalei's 2nd day and she was like a veteran, Jose is always on it, and I believe Kamalei was shadowing Razi (guy with accent who never forgets a face) who serves with passion and delights the diners. We actually came back after our business meeting and had drink served by Cori. Bistro is our go to place.
Best Italian on island. Had the tempura ahi and the lamb chops, both quite delicious. All my friends loved this place. I recommend Bistro Casanova to all.
Always great food and fabulous desserts.
