Bistro Casanova

4.3
832 Reviews
$31 to $50
Italian
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 had a wonderful experience for dinner! Our server Pietro (spelling?) was great! Food was delicious. My husband said "this is my new favorite restaurant"! We both had pasta dishes and they were incredible! Pasta was cooked to perfection which is a big thing for me!!

We chose outside seating for our reservation. We were seated in the darkest table outside by the AC unit where there was zero lighting. It was horrible. The staff forgot we were even there. Our server was not at all hospitable, we had to ask so many times throughout dinner for more water. When he filled our glasses it was warm water. Not even one ice cube. Sad thing was the restaurant was not busy at all. We had the reservation for 8. We were seated a little after that and was greeted by the server almost 30 minutes later. This was our first time at Bistro Casanova. The food was good. We left full. The hospitality was horrible! We’d like to return again to give it another go.

Our 2nd time here. We’ve lived here for two years and just discovered the Bistro. We live upcountry and have been eating at Casanova’s in Malawi’s where the menu is very limited. The Bistro has a full menu and a happy hour that’s fantastic. Everyone here is friendly and attentive. The fresh fish dish and Rib eye steak were excellent. The beer and margaritas were cold. This will be our new spot, worth the drive down the mountain.

Excellent food and service! We ate on the outdoor patio, which felt like a very safe environment for enjoying a night out. In this case, it was our anniversary, and everyone working at the restaurant, especially our waiter, made it special!

Much appreciation for keeping the Bistro open and wonderful with all the pandemic restrictions that must be very challenging to restaurant operation. The Bistro will be one of two restaurants I will be frequenting on Maui these days

Delightful choice of small plates. Four of us shared them and we were all very impressed. The kale salad, the nori cones with three different ahi poke and the lobster risotto the standouts. Service was perfect and the artsy interior a pleasure for the eyes. A gem.

It was ok this time. This was our second time dining at your restaurant and the first time was a lot better. We had a Kamaina discount the first time and the food was much better. The waitress was nice but the experience was disappointing.

Bistro is always good, but they stopped offering some of the incentives they had to eat there during this unprecedented time. It’s a little on the pricier side, so things like the dine in discount offered during June or the free dessert with yelp check-in made it worth it to eat there during non-happy hour times. The night we ate there, there was a private party so half the restaurant was blocked off and it seemed a little louder than normal. Still love Bistro, so we’ll definitely be back.. but maybe just for pupus.

Responded on August 4, 2020

Dear Jasmine, thank you for your loyalty to Bistro Casanova, We are looking forward to have you back, even if only for our spectacular tapas and Happy Hours. Unfortunately the "unprecedented times" make it impossible to keep offering the incentives we did offer. At 50% capacity, the margins which allow Restaurants to stay in business are very thin. In June we were able to offer a discount only because Government programs (PPP) allowed us to..loose money. Now that source is drying up... Aloha.

We had an incredible steak and lobster dinner with cocktails. Lots of laughter in the dining room as we've all been quarantined and life has changed. Everyone at dinner was happy to be out for a meal and the staff enjoyed themselves as well (I hope). Terrific and attentive service from everyone including all safety protocols necessary so we can come back and eat again. Bistro Casanova is a favorite of ours. Aloha.
