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

Recommended by our bike guide as a good, tasty and affordable coffee/breakfast spot. But, after we parked our bikes on a Friday morning around 815, we walked in to get coffee and breakfast and when I asked how or where to order, we were given...More

I have once again returned to have lunch at this peaceful (during the day) restaurant. This time I got the Gnocchi Al Gorgonzola while my companion got the Beverly Hills. Both dishes were delicious and accompanied by small salads and yummy bread. The service was...More

After over 20 years of saying 'you can always count on a good meal at Casanova' I can no longer do so. Last night 5 of us went for cocktails and dinner. It was not enjoyable. My favorite Cioppino disapointed. Salads were OK. Pasta had...More

When you are in a tour bus you never know where the driver plans to take you for lunch. With limited time to eat, it was surprisingly wonderful to visit Casanova. The food was delicious, hot, tasty, the service was out of the ordinary and...More

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"

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!

We had a reservation and were 10 minutes late and they refused to seat us. The last lunch seating is 2 pm and they hold that time solid. If you're a few minutes late don't bother walking in. Waste of time. Had I read on...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.
