Description: Often rated Best Italian restaurant in the State of Hawaii, and consistently voted Best Italian in Maui, 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.

We had a great dinner with truffle oil ravioli and the risotto special. Betsy was our friendly helpful server. Great food. Highly recommend this restaurant for up country Maui.

Three of us ate at the Deli after a relaxing spa day at the wonderful Ho'omana Spa. We decided to stop at the Casanova Deli because we had heard so many wonderful things about it. The food was decent but the attitude of the two women behind the counter was unfriendly and rude! We asked how it worked and the young women told us to just order, sit down and our name will be called when the food is ready. No welcome, no smile, just a grouchy face. We placed our order and she was mad because we didn't give her a tip! On the receipt there is a place for a tip. What am I tipping for, a rotten attitude? All she did was punch our order into a cash register. We picked up our own food, we got our own cutlery and we cleaned our table. After eating I asked her where the restroom was and she gave me attitude again by rolling her eyes. We have never felt so unwelcome in Maui and we have been going for more than 15 years. Never again will we visit this deli. We were in such a happy mood from our wonderful spa day and this deli brought us all down.

This gem is a must stop after a day trip to Haleakowa Park. Tasty Italian food. Unique pairings. Chocolate truffle torte for dessert was melt in the mouth. Relaxing atmosphere

We were excited to celebrate my husband's birthday by eating out. He wanted to celebrate so he ordered their $36 ribeye steak. It looked good on the plate, however it was very tough and difficult to chew. I tried a bite and could not swallow it. It was gross. My mom had joined us and she tried a bite and she also noticed how tough and grisled the meat was. She had ordered their $18 meat lasagna and could not eat it. She said it was dry and did not have the melty cheese she was expecting. I ordered the mushroom pasta and thought it was delicious. So, one out of three. We will not go there again. We notified both our waitress and the manager and neither one of them did anything except to apologize.

We ate here two years ago, and made a special point of coming back- it didn’t disappoint! The handmade pasta was cooked to perfection, all the ingredients were fresh, and the flavors impeccable. This spot is a must!
