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 were looking for place near the airport to eat before a late night flight for our family of ten. The staff was very kind and accommodating. The food was absolutely amazing. Although they did not have kids menus, they were really kind to the children and happy to split full sized portions. This restaurant is probably a great place to bring a date or have a more intimidate dinner but it was great for our family as well! I had the seafood pasta and my husband had ciopiino. It was really really delicious! I will be back again someday!

Away from the tourist attractions and expensive beachfront restaurants lies this quiet Italian style bistro. You must go for the meal plates to share. Last night we did the seafood and it was out of this world great!

We received a gift card for my Birthday, so we made reservations and went on a Saturday evening. The service and food were very good. The wait staff help each other and the water glasses and bread baskets were refilled promptly. We shared the Mauka meat plate, YUMMY. I would recommend Bistro Casanova to others and we will be back ourselves!

It was a good option for Italian in Maui while we were visiting. The Mushroom pasta with cream sauce was good. The caesar salad was similar to the one from Costco. Service was good enough. The meatball sandwich was good. The fettuccine alfredo was just okay. It was a good meal meal but not one I would go out of our way for…

I really liked the menu here. Very Mediterranean. I had the steak and lobster. The lobster was as a bit over seasoned but tasted great. The steak was cooked to order perfectly and tasted great. I finished all of my entree. My lady enjoyed her pasta and clams, the girls all had fettuccine with chicken and said moms is way better. You can't beat moms cooking when she's a trained chef, hard to compete with that! Our server was friendly and humorous and we enjoyed the conversation. We unfortunately had to hurry up and leave due some issues with one of the girls but otherwise, a great dining experience. We aren't huge Italian food fans but you can tell this was a nice place and we enjoyed the evening we had here.

Wednesday May 26 2021, What a shame good food destroyed by bad management! All they cared about was going home. We arrived for our 8:30 reservation on time but has had to be moved since the party that we sat next to were clearly drunk and extremely loud to the point we were told they were cut off. We proceeded to order our drinks, two of the three they were out of due to missing ingredients. After a long period
of time our drinks arrived and then the rushing to get us out started. They kept trying to get our order. We proceeded to ordered three apps and then were told to please order because the kitchen was closing! When the apps arrived we asked for some bread and were told they were out of bread! Imagine an Italian restaurant out of bread. As we were finishing our meal the chairs in the dinning room in front of us were being placed on the tables. We were asked to please order dessert because the chef was leaving, so we ordered two of them. At that point the music was turned off and a one of the employees started to vacuum in the next dining room. The server then came by to ask for us to pay because they wanted her paperwork. What an experience. Overall the food was good and the portions were a nice size. But the management team and the chef need to understand how to take care of the guest. The overall experience was not good.

The quality of the food was good. The portion size at first I wasn’t impressed with, but was just the right amount. My main issue was there was no bread! I have never been to an Italian restaurant that didn’t serve bread before/with the meal.

Bistro Casanova
Responded on May 28, 2021

Thank you for sharing your appreciation for the quality of the food at Bistro Casanova. As clearly stated in the menu, we deliver bread on demand. It will be our priority to remind servers to ask patrons if they want any of our home made focaccia bread with their meal. We still believe that automatic delivery of bread to patrons who do not really ask for it or want it is an unnecessary waste of resources.

Was there for my birthday. The rating is misleading. The place is okay as a local restaurant for casual dining. It’s no way this restaurant lives up for 4 1/2 star rating.
We drove 35 minutes from wailea based on that rating. Not cool!

Sorry your expectations were not met by your visit at Bistro Casanova. Bistro is a neighborhood gem, a favorite of Maui residents since 12 years. Visitors mostly come on their way to the airport, to enjoy a great meal before or after their flight. An experience at Bistro includes mingling with local guests, supporting a local business and enjoying what Maui life is all about, at reasonable prices far from the big $$$ Resorts on the South and West Side. I hope you enjoyed our food.

Brought our daughter here for her last meal before taking her to the airport to go home. The food did not disappoint! She and her dad loved the vodka oyster shooters. Our daughter is GF and she said the homemade GF pasta was on point! Overall our pasta dishes salad and taramisu dessert were all excellent and our server was very attentive.
