We came for breakfast to the smaller part of the restaurant on the right side. The food was good, the cappuccino excellent. But after spending more than 2 weeks on Maui meeting mainly very friendly people we just couldn't believe how unfriendly and rude the...More

This is a typical Italian restaurant, menu wise at least. The pizza's are huge, you may want to consider sharing, or at least ask advise if you are in a multi person group. The pasta menu is OK, both for taste and portion size The...More

I went here on my first night on Maui when I was mostly hungry and tired from travel. The service was prompt and friendly. I had a tagliatelle osso buco pasta that was delicious and more than I could eat. The capresse salad was only...More

We made reservations here for our last day. It's a great stop for dinner if you're looking to fill time before a red eye flight. It opens for dinner, but the downtown Makawao, an upcountry area known for agriculture and ranching has little shops to...More

Every time I go out to eat here I tell myself I'm never coming back. This time I mean it. It literally took 15 minutes for our waitress to bring us water and ask us what we wanted to drink after the hostess sat us....More

We stumbled on this place after touring the Maui Pineapple plantation. We had a large party and were all starving. The restaurant wasn't busy. Our server was friendly. I tried some of their homemade prickly pear kombucha and it was delicious. Everyone enjoyed their food-...More

Often rated Best Italian restaurant in the State of Hawaii, Casanova is a staple of the lifestyle of Upcountry Maui since 1986. From early morning breakfast thru lunch and dinner and to late night clubbing and dancing on selected nights of the week, Casanova is the ritual destination of Maui residents and of visitors on their way back from Haleakala Crater. The Casanova experience is much more than its awards winning sumptuous authentic Italian cuisine. It's meeting and mingling with Maui folks in the very spot where they like to dine, meet and mingle. A must do when in Upcountry Maui.
