My pasta had good flavor but it was under cook
The food here was very good. The waiter and servers tried very hard but I feel that like so many places right now it's hard to fond enough staff.
Could use a little updating. The bus boy was amazing! The waitress was not very friendly. The food was delicious. Overall great night out in a lovely town.
They were sold out of everything and the portions were lousy service was pretty crappy
The Ono was amazing, the food was great, service was great.
Lovely setting we really enjoyed the live music! We have been here for dinner, I enjoyed the Sunday brunch ambiance better.
The food was delicious and the service was superb! Everyone was so friendly and the waiter was awesome! Definitely want to come to this place. It’s worth the drive!
Food way too salty. Steak was good but pasta's yuck.
The food was good. A bit disappointed with the ceaser salad dressing, not the same recipe as before the change in ownership. The service was good but obviously short staffed as it took 1 1/2 hrs to get food.
It's good food, Italian americanized a bit, but still pretty authentic recipes.
They opened up the layout of the restaurant, so it's super super loud, kind of hard to have a conversation.
The service is great! Nice friendly servers.
It was delicious! Great prices!
Best lasagna around. What a nice treat to find a traditional Italian restaurant in Hawaii!! Until next time.
Delicious food. Will be back. Every thing is home made and so many choices. I loved the artichoke appetizer and gnocchi.
If the food had been good, this would have been a stellar experience. But the food was just too greasy/oily. The restaurant was beautiful, the service was great, even though we showed up at the end of the day and I’m sure folks were tired, we got attentive, friendly service. But my ravioli had “truffle oil” just poured all over it, in addition to a fairly heavy sauce, and my daughters pasta dish also just glistened with oil. It was too much. I’d love to go there sometime for drinks and snacks, but the dinner selections were just way too heavy with oil and grease.
This was OK, but not as I had hoped. The server was really great and reservations were easy.
With family and/or friends, I dine here at least 5-10x a year...
Our wedding anniversary, very nice worn our grandson
I love Casanova’s and have been coming here since I was a kid. However under the new owners, the portions have gotten smaller while the prices have gone up. The staff is also always a little slow - never a place to go when you’re in a rush! I like to go at 8 pm or later and be the last ones there.
I also wish the bread and olive oil with balsamic was still a starter for everyone vs. something you need to order for $3. It just was a nice touch and felt more family friendly when you know that bread appetizer is on the way no matter what.
Everything was great. Worth the 40 minute drive from wailea.
I traveled here just for the duck and was not disappointed. The pasta is made there but it's al dente so just ask for well cooked if you don't like it that way. Would definitely recommend.
The food was fabulous and the wait staff was super friendly.
Service super and genuinely friendly at Sunday brunch. Well paced. Great benedicts. We had a good experience.
Really enjoyed dinner! Good service despite being crowded night and tasty food. Awesome area worth a visit while in Maui.
I enjoyed the old place, more for the local vibes than the food, although the food was decent. Love the new space with so much light. Well done. Good to see someone keep this going. Losing another restaurant in Makawao would have been a bummer.
Good drinks and good food, we love this place!
We were skeptical about driving up to the restaurant but are glad we did! Great food and service. Everything was home made, great wine list and excellent taste! Worth the drive, and still incredible views.
I have tried to send it several times but I’ll try again my husband and I had a very memorable evening at Casanovas. Our waitress Mora was very helpful finding a wine at suited my husband and myself as we never seem to drink the same type of wine.
The service was impeccable our dinner perfect.
Mora made sure everything was the way we ordered .
couldn’t have been any more perfect or steak was cooked to perfection sage better and the broccolini were perfect.
Cassanova always been our go to I’ve never been disappointed in a meal.
Last night was exceptional the service and the quality of food was a real kiss after a long day at work.
I definitely want to mention that we are so appreciative we know how difficult staying open has been this last year plus I want to say to Casanovas thank you for a little bit of normal.
I can only guess there is a different chef than the last time we ate (7/20) because the food was less than mediocre. My husband couldn't even eat the shrimp that he paid extra for because they were rubbery and spit them out.
Both of our dishes were very salty and well if weren't starved we probably wouldn't have finished most of it. I would have like to be offered some bread with our meal which I thought was offered with Italian cuisine, but we were never asked.
When we arrived we were told it would be five minutes, but the hostess forgot about us and I had to ask her 10+ later if we were going to be seate?
Poor expereince, compared to the last time which we enjoyed very much!
Great location, pleasant service, outstanding spaghetti carbonara.
Great service! The food was exceptional. I had the rib eye and it was possibly the best steak I have had in as long as I can remember. The ambience is amazing. I like what the new ownership has done.
Pasta for the kids, salads and we shared the tomahawk rib eye special with 4 adults. So delicious. Our server Leah is so friendly and kept us fed and drinks cold and refilled. The freshly made hot focaccia bread is the best around.
We had a pleasant evening. The Lasagna was not as good as it has been, but the barbecue pizza, the beef strips were excellent.
The noise level in the restaurant from other diners made it difficult to communicate for the 4 of us.
Spot on pastas and crime brûlée!
Excellent fresh Italian food! The seafood stew special and home made pasta (and bread) was so amazing! Will definitely go back again!
Just a nice lil spot for great food and great service !
Our server was awesome and attentive. The female entertainer was delightful and just the right volume. Overall we really enjoyed the experience.
Our meals for brunch were delicious, servers efficient n friendly, everything timely. The only thing I would say is that the amount of hollandaise could be increased a bit (2nd time n same experience
We really enjoyed our dining experience at Casanova. We are longtime Kula residents, and it was really nice the way the restaurant has been opened up. New menu was nice as well!
I usually LOVE Casanova Bistro but this time the food tasted somewhat bland. Also, I ordered the dish I usually get as it can be made vegan and they made it with shrimp and told me that I asked for that. LOL. The server even said, "Oh okay vegan so no cheese, yeah". And then brought it with shrimp. Hellllllllooooo? Oh well. When I said I won't eat shrimp I swear they took it back and pulled the shrimp off and gave it back. Yek. Not cool.
Their seafood special was amazing!
also the black squid pasta is to die for!
