I came here for lunch when I visited Maui. It was my first meal in Hawaii, actually. I had the Mahi Mahi which was well done, but should have been served hotter. Our server didn't seem friendly, but that was okay too. I can't comment on the other food because I did not try it, but it wasn't the best... More

Stopped for dinner after watching sunset at Haleakala. The food hit the spot. Their bread was freshly baked. Linguine Pescatore sauce was amazing. You can easily come back again. My husband had Rigatoni Beverly hills with sun dried tomatoes and it was very good too. Price was reasonable too. Ambience was good and service was great.

We reserved online and we're 10 mins late. Thinking there was live music. The music started at 10 pm a bit later then we had planned. No one was greetings at the door. And no clear main desk. We approached a waiter who directed us. With lots of empty tables. We had to wait for table to be cleared. The... More

Made an unplanned stop here for lunch with my husband and it was well made. The service at lunch time was great and the food was amazing. Our waitress even let us take extra bread to go because that stuff is SOO good!

The food is consistently good. Full menu of Italian dishes and pizza. Great place for a single diner to eat at the bar and strike up conversations with tourists and locals alike. Wine list is a little thin, but the cocktail creativity makes up for it. Hot focaccia with olive oil and balsamic is a nice start to your meal.... More

Our party of 10 visited Cassanova's because of it's favorable ratings but were overall very disappointed. We were seated next to a dark hole--maybe an old stage, which was less than inviting. Everyone was super hungry, so it wouldn't have been hard to make us happy. My parents ordered eggplant parmesan, which they said was average. Three of us ordered... More

For some reason, Roberts Hawaii uses this restaurant as a breakfast stop after the Haleakala Sunrise tour and it was really good. I just thought it was odd to use an italian restaurant, but in this case, it works. There is a pretty good variety of choices offered that caters to any diet, but don't expect a lot of food....

We dine often at Casanova. The mojitos are great and the food consistently good--the dinner for two is a great value provides a lot of variety/choices. What's sometimes inconsistent is the service--we've had great, good, and terrible, sometimes in the same month.
