i was impressed by the quality of the food. The pasta did not make me bloated the way pasta normally makes me feel. The dessert was home made. The service was great. The ingredients they use to make their food seems like it must be top notch.
The food came out quickly and the staff was so friendly.
The meal was amazing and the Makawao Mule was ono!!
So worth the drive. Homemade pasta. Ridiculously good. Decent prices. Kind and on point attentive service. Make a reservation and go
We’ve been to the other location Bistro Casanova while we really enjoyed that place we had high expectations for the food here as well.
Our entree was overly salty and the service was a O-K.
The price is average but I guess that’s what kind of food you’d get- average.
Friendly and attentive staff and a large variety menu of food and full Bar. Drinks served cold and food hot. Excellent portions and very flavorful.
Amazing spot in upcountry! We will be back for sure.
Great all round services food excelleht
Service and food was excellent!!
Service was excellent! The meals were very good. The indoor temperature was very warm.I think ceiling fans or air conditioning would make for a more pleasant experience. Prices were a tad high for the quality & quantity of food. However, I would dine there again.
Wonderful service, excellent lobster, cooked to perfection. A bit loud, even with seating spread out due to continued Covid precautions.
We arrived early for our reservation and they were able to accommodate us 15 minutes early. I thought my tagliatelle pasta with shrimp was some of the best pasta I’ve ever eaten (incredibly flavorful with garlic, lemon, spinach, pine nuts & tomatoes). My son LOVED the lasagne, which was creamier than most: really enjoyed it. My daughter got the pizza and liked it but didn’t rave about it. We ordered Caesar salad and focaccia bread, both of which we all loved. Great service, from our server and several others who refilled water, tea and bread very promptly. Unfortunately, we were too full to order dessert. This was well worth our drive from Makena.
Loved our food (seafood, pasta, and apps!). The waiter was quirky and nice with good recommendations. Our water glasses were never empty. It took a long time to get our check and leave when we had finished the meal.
My Yellowfin fillet topped with a macadamia/mango chutney and roasted vegetables was served hot flaky, juicy and crispy. My wife's penne with chicken and vodka sauce was rich and flavorful. The servers were all friendly, gracious, extremely classy and enthusiastic. Couldn't find better Italian if we had been in Chicago. Loved it!
Food was mayjah, drinks was mayjah. 100% solid place fo grind if you neva made reservations you missing out brah
I’ve been here multiple times and this place exceeds expectations every time. The servers are phenomenal, the drinks are always on point, and the food is simply incredible. If you don’t order the focaccia bread, you’re a fool. I highly recommend the linguine seafood pescatore. *chefs kiss* and save room for the creme brûlée.
I’m an Italian girl from the east coast who currently lives in Maui and this is my absolute go to. Best Italian food on the island. Can’t wait to go back.
The food was delicious. Everything the freshest ingredients, everything made in house, even the pasta. Outstanding. By far the best Italian on Maui.
We had a great dinner with amazing pasta! Would love to visit again!!
We had pasta, which was homemade and delicious. Service was great, and the pasta was hot when served! (A pet peeve of ours is cool pasta.). Sasha was our waiter. Our first time here, but definitely not our last.
They use really fresh and local ingredients, service was very friendly, and we had a great meal! Thank you!
This restaurant really appealed to me because it was nothing extravagantly fancy, but just a friendly warm place. The food was excellent, the drinks were good. I enjoy eating in a restaurant that does that remind me of every other chain restaurant, and this is it. The staff was very accommodating and my next trip to Maui will include a trip to Casanova.
I highly recommend Casanovas! Excellent service and the food was delicious! I especially appreciated the authentic Italian pasta... perfectly Al dente! The focaccia was one of the best I've had, and the Lilikoi Lemonade cocktail was divine!
This was a birthday celebration (with Covid precautions).
The space is relatively small and the noise was loud: and loud for the entire meal. However, the service and food quality made the whole experience better.
The server was Sasha, and he was the best! He has knowledge, experience, wit, and dedicated service.
The food was good Italian: homemade bread, artichokes, caprese salad, pasta, seafood, and tiramisu for dessert.
I highly recommend the Casanova (and be mindful there is another with the same name).
Casanova is my go to for consistently good food and friendly service.
Birthday for my wife it was amazing
Food was delicious. Very noisy. Hard to hear across the table unless you spoke loud. Good service. Will be back soon. Thank goodness we made reservations because the restaurant was full by the time we left.
Casanova is serving up some awesome food consistently whenever I go there. Everything is fresh and delicious.
Thank you so much !
We have been going to this restaurant for some 30 years and have always enjoyed the experience and the food; however the ownership has changed. We were expecting the same quality as the menu remains the same as was with previous owners, however this was not so. No point returning as prices have increased and quality decreased
So happy to make reservations here since the restaurants are so busy now. The Funghi is not like I remember it back in the days. Not as creamy as I remember it and my noodles were stuck together. Everything else was good.
The food is so incredibly delicious … it continues to improve after the change in ownership and the portions are generous … It is truly chefs creating the outstanding sauces and making sure dishes like the calamari can be cut with a fork … worth the drive to our artsy/cowboy town …
The food here was amazing! I’m so glad we decided to go somewhere we’ve never been while visiting Maui! This place is truly a hidden gem. The waitress was wonderful as well. Definitely will be back next time we are in Maui.
Food was really great and server was super nice. This is the first time back since Casanova's was bought by the owner of Flat Bread. Interior has been upgraded and is really nice. Although my favorite menu item is no longer on the menu, I found a decent replacement.
Wonderful, fresh pasta and great service as always!
Delicious per usual !
Wonderful find while staying at the Fairmont. I highly recommend you go and relax!
We love eating at Casanova,. We dine here often. They were already busy when we arrived. The table was not made for 5 persons seated and a high chair, maybe 4 total tops. Server was slow and the pizza took almost an hour to make. Hopefully just a rare off night.
What a delightful dinner. Chicken Parmesan, lasagna, meatballs and ravioli ! Every meal was cooked to perfection and made fresh daily. Caesar salad was so fresh and full of flavor. Our waiter was on point and gave great recommendations. We would gladly dine here again.
Best meal we’ve had in Maui
good staff and helpful manager was doing everything from serving to delivering drinks.
Excellent manager for his staff!
We had a very nice dinner. Calamari appetizer and house made focaccia were delicious. Catch of the day was unavailable even though we had a 5:00 reservation. Seafood pasta dish was over salted, but the seafood was all cooked perfectly. Family loved their pizza and pasta bolognese. Nice wine list. Interior is not fancy, but service is good and prices are reasonable with better food and service than many restaurants on the island. Desserts were good.
Best meal I’ve had there.
