Had a great breakfast sandwich here with a tour group after visiting Haleakala. The juice was fresh and the sandwich was large. The service was friendly and quick. Overall a good stop if you are in the "upcountry"

This is a great place, very relaxed and yet very busy. Casanova is the perfect place in Mokawao if you are in town for one night.. The food is excellent, the service is stellar. Love the wood fired pizza! We had fried calamari, a kale...More

We really enjoyed lunch here. Our waitress, Sallie, was happy to share impressions about the food and enjoyed some laughs with us. Sallie sure steered us the right way, because we found the calamari, carbonara, and fresh fish completely to our liking.

This is a Maui MUST. Don't know if you've had Cioppino before, BUT Miguel makes the absolute best! . . . . . to the point that it's now the only place I will order it! GOTTA DO IT!

Better than expected Italian restaurant in this tiny town. Our server Liz was charming and was made the visit most enjoyable. My wife's linguini with clams was declared excellent. I requested, off the menu, a burger with a portobello mushroom and that was delicious.

We had a group of eight for dinner, and came in before the dinner rush. It didn't seem to be a busy night. Seven of us were served our dinner and finished long before the final entree arrived. And, when the last entree arrived, it...More

Our neighbors insist that this is the best Italian restaurant on Maui. After enjoying dinner at Casanova's with them, we couldn't disagree. At first glance Casanoa's looks like a typical Makawao gastronomic establishment, aged, well warn, open aired, inviting and friendly. The service is a...More

Oh, yum--every year we look forward to going to Casanova's to have their delectable food. Their Greek salad is always fresh and the salad dressing they make to go with it is the best I've ever had! This year we enjoyed that along with a...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.
