We've eaten at Casanova twice and find it to be a very good option if you're in or around Makawao. We've had pizza, pasta and salads there and found everything to be fresh and tasty. The seafood linguine with black squid ink was especially memorable....The gnocchi portion was small but then again gnocchi tends to be very filling. The wood-fired pizza is delicious, however, the crust edges are dry and we probably would have eaten them if there was something to dip them in, like a balsamic dip. The service was friendly and efficient both times we were there. The ambience is very casual. The large space with concrete/wood floor and exposed dark timber trusses made if feel like a large dining hall from days gone by, which it may well have been when the Marines used the building during WWII. It tends to be noisy so it's a great place for larger groups. If you want a more intimate ambience the back portion of the restaurant is more conducive to that.More

Drove to this restaurant from the southwest part of Maui due to the menu and the reviews. Glad we did because it did not disappoint. The food was flavorful and the portions were generous. I personally kept eyeing every pizza that came out and regret...having had pizza earlier in the week, because the pizza here looked phenomenal. Our server was very attentive and the restaurant staff clearly works as a team as there are constantly people picking up and dropping off things at the table...the way a restaurant should be run! Would definitely return here on my next trip to MauiMore

My new rule is that you see locals lined up near a low key restaurant location slam on your brakes and get in line too. Very well done Casanova. Just the value for the fun fare offered was jaw dropping. Thank them for sharing their...craft. The bread was as delicate as angel food and the natural flavors of dishes are allowed to shine through proper preparation and not hidden by over seasoning. Craft takes time so don't expect a quick bite and run.More

Wait staff was very accommodating in spite of our long wait for food. Nothing in particular strikes me as outstanding about the foods we tried, but then again, they have an extensive menu, with many appealing items. A nice place for a meal if you're...in the vicinity.More

The food! The ambiance! Our server, Sasha! The gorgeous wine list! This place was incredible, I loved every second. Sasha was the very best. You have to absolutely get the focaccia and a bottle of red along with your entrees: no bad choices on that...wine list of theirs! The steak dinner was delicious to the extreme and the tiramisu was stellar.More

This Italien Restaurant has the best food. Lasagna out of this world. The lamb was superb. I’m glad I found this little gem in Makawao. Going back for sure. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

I didn't think that I would ever get a good steak in Hawaii. It was probably the best filet I have ever had. It was cooked to perfection, which was surprising, since I like my steak done rare. Our waitress was Tara. She was so...friendly and professional. After staying at the motel hell across the street, the was a Godsend. It's too bad that they are so hidden away. I love this restaurant.More

My husband and I ate dinner here once. He had a pasta dish with veggies and chicken. I ordered a daily special appetizer as my main dish. It had a generous portion of scallops and fresh spinach. Very delicious. Our server was helpful and pleasant.
