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 goes beyond to reach some classic of the European cuisine: Paella for two, Bouiallabaisse, Crepes, 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, a creative offering of wines by the glass and carafes of mojiito and margaritas.
Tapas (available after 3pm) 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.

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.

We stopped in for happy hour on the way to the airport and had a table outside. Great fun watching the chickens while sipping the very nice specials. The food was tasty and the service was friendly. Nice place to chill.

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.

Excellent service from Patrick and our very friendly female service attendant in the back dining room.
Place was very busy and Patrick was very helpful and handled our "res" promptly and professionally.

The service could not have been better here. Truly friendly and fast and attentive. The food was quick and descent. We got paninis and they were nice. Each with plenty of greens in them. The side salad had alot of old squishy lettuce remnants like it had been mixed with old and fresh. The atmosphere was like an old age home and smelled weird. The coke tastes funny. The lemonade and gingerale were not good either.

Great find on New Years Day before our flight out. The menu is perfect offering light fare through heavier steaks.

I had the angel hair al checca with shrimp. My husband had the mushroom pasta and both were delicious. We shared the kale Caesar (Kaesar) and it was one of my favorite things.

Would return for sure.

Nice local place for Italian food. The food is pretty good. They were out of a lot, but it was just after a holiday. It very nice to be able to casually linger over dinner with no pressure and nice servers. There is no real wine selection to speak of, or I would have rated it higher. I also tend to be conservative in ratings as tourists rate everything high and that makes it hard to make decisions, so I compare to all the places I have been and not inflate because we are on Maui. I do recommend for moderate priced, casual or family Italian dinner.

It was pretty good overall. The paella didn’t have a “crust” like they traditionally do. We had a REALLY loud table beside us which kind of killed the atmosphere

The Drink Specials are always on point but the service was very slow and almost non-existent. I usually don't have a problem with service and maybe because they were busy with another party but maybe having more servers on nights where you know you will be busy may help. The pupu menu was not as good as normal either quite disappointing especially when I was raving about it to my co-workers all week. They were not impressed. Too bad. Maybe it was just an off night. I will go back for the drink specials but not sure if my friends will.

Responded on November 19, 2019

Sorry for your bad experience at Bistro Casanova. Paella, our signature dish since opening in 2009 and a very popular choice, is indeed a complex dish to prepare, with many ingredients, each of them requiring a different coking time. In your case our cooks did not follow the timing properly and I apologize. Your words got our attention so that it does not happen any more. Thanks for the contribution.
