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.

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
Mahalo!

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.

Incredible food. Had requested way ahead for a waitress we had before who was excellent. Even called that day to confirm. Different. I didn’t think service was that bad. My wife was disappointed. Said she didn’t think was up to par. But I will go back for sure

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.

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.
