This place has terrific pasta-including the carbonara, lasagna. Calamari was also terrific. Service was great. It perplexes me that some have not liked this place, but as for us, it was great.

I found this restaurant accidentally in 2008 and had a delicious pasta in a sage cream sauce. I couldn't remember where it was located. IN 2013, I found it, but at the time, they weren't open for lunch. This trip to Maui, I knew where it was and we went for dinner. Not sure if I had the exact same... More

The excuse was the fillet med rare takes a long time to get right. The table next to us sat down 15 minutes after us and got there food and left before... More

as soon as we walked in the door the aroma from the kitchen had me hooked. We were a party of six, and our reservation provided a large table with plenty of room around it. We started with appetizers, followed by fresh salad. We each had a separate entree - Italian dishes, menu specials, and pizza. The portions were large... More

We love that we can go and share a half carafe of Chianti for just $5 and enjoy some quiet conversation and a delicious meal so close to our home. Casanova has been a staple of our dining circuit for over 25 years.

Simply fresh and delicious thin crust pizza is served here. We were able to get one half BBQ chicken and the other Hawaiian to enjoy two flavors. Their large pizza selection could serve 1-2 people depending on how hungry you are. All their alcoholic beverages were very full servings. Next door is their deli/coffee/dessert bar if you did not want... More

Over the years we would stop into Casanovas every 3 months or so just because there is not to many places to dine upcountry. Went the other night on the fly and the place looked maybe half full. Waited at the door for a endless 3 to 4 minutes, thats long when the place is slow..Bartender was fine, "let me... More
