Casanova Italian Restaurant
Our first night dining out since the reopening of restaurants was a great experience. The tables were spread apart and all staff wore masks. We wore masks when we were up and about as well. I love the changes of the recent remodeling, it is open and fresh while maintaining its cozy upcountry vibe. The food was fantastic. We ordered the Lamb and the Mahi special. Finished off with chocolate mousse cake. It really couldn’t have been tastier. Can’t wait to go back.
The food offered at Casanovas is prepared by chefs (not cooks) who make excellent sauces. Evens the drinks are good. Go see the fireplace.
The newly remodeled Casanova’s Restaurant is bright and beautiful.
It was a great dinner, perfect for the four of us. Food was yummy. Love the locale.
Very professional and good food and ambience.
The chefs make excellent sauces and season everything perfectly
No need salt or ground pepper
First time back since pandemic closure. The interior looks airy and clean. Tables were distanced apart. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. Some mix ups with our meals but they got it right after all. Would define return here.
Casanova's is simply one of the best Italian restaurants in the United States. The food is consistently marvelous, the staff is friendly, fast, and accurate, and the overall ambience is very welcoming.
Casanova's food is on a level with the fine restaurants of Italy. And the wine list is excellent and not expensive.
If you're going to Hawaii, Casanova's, and the lovely historic town of Makawao, is not to be missed.
Love the new decor/improvements!! Had a wonderful anniversary dinner - steak was delicious and squid ink pasta incredible.
We sat up on the stage and there was no air flow so it was really hot. Other than that everything was great and we love the new layout. It’s nap nice and bright. We love it!
The new owners revamped the entire restaurant from new carpeting, tables, fireplace, renovation on the dance floor converted to a seating dining area. We felt so comfortable with the 6 ft spaced tables due to the (covid-19 CDC regulations) and were amazed and raving about our outstanding tasteful meals, ambiance, professional management and wait staff. Hats off to the new owners & staff of Casanova’s Makawao for such a pleasant dining experience.
Food and service were outstanding.

Certified chefs combine herbs (endive and capers with ahi for the special) to awaken our taste buds ... the food is better than with the previous owners ... What a surprise to see the fireplace that was hidden behind a wall for the dance floor !!! The bar is the same, just fewer seats. It has such an open feel with the booths removed. Of course it’s expensive but they graciously provide any special requests and the food continues to be outstanding. The pizza station remains, reminiscent of when my daughter was small and would sit there as long as allowed, creating her meal while chatting with the pizza chef. We are grateful to be able to dine in and be served. I’ve been going since they opened and feel so happy to live within walking distance if I drink too much. It was pleasantly quiet until the music came on ... speakers by bar caused the drinkers to shout ...
New owner now charges for the focaccia bread which used to be complimentary. My spaghetti bolognese was only OK. Linguine vongole was very good.
The restaurant has just reopened in quarantine style so the tables were far apart. However, the ambiance with great. The restaurant has been remodeled with high beam ceilings and a fireplace element. My only quibble is the caesar salad wasn't as good as I remembered....maybe the dressing wasn't as "zippy" as before? The entrees were both delicious and we treated ourselves to dessert. The creme brulee was fabulous. The wait staff was very welcoming.
First of all they do not subscribe to Open Table anymore. Secondly, The menu is not as stated on this site. Thirdly, You have to pay $12 for a glass of wine and you don't even know what you're getting, Fourthly, They did away with happy hour. I have to say however, the service was very good and expedient.
Friendly and attentive server. Portions of dinner meals seemed small. I usually have enough spaghetti to take home but tonight I finished the meal. For the price charged, pasta is expensive here I guess. The interior here needs refreshing badly also.
I've had lunch in the bistro, which is so-so. The restaurant is a different story. Fantastic. Apparently there is a new owner, obviously doing a fantastic job. LIKE.
Super friendly staff. Great vibe.
They carry most things that the restaurant had under old management/owner. They now charge for bread with the meal which used to be complimentary. They no longer serve blended drinks that us a blender. Other than these couple of things the service was excellent and the food was good.
Great Italian food with friendly and knowledgeable wait staff,
Quality food, small portions, often busy, long wait - shorter wait with a reservation.
What a disappointment! We have been coming for years and loved it - but new ownership seems to have destroyed it!! Service was surly from start to finish, expensive glasses of red wine were old and off - had to send back and buy a full bottle to ensure quality. The special Ossobuca Is no longer on the menu - the special Cioppino I ordered was tasteless!! Did they fire the chef?? You would have to pay me to go back there again ☹️
The serving staff was friendly and attentive but the food was lacking. An amazing jazz violinist accompanied our dinner.
Lasagne was ok in taste, meat texture ok, but altogether this dish was mushy and not nearly worth the money paid. The pasta was over cooked. The deep fried calamari, fish and shrimp were dry and rubbery, and similarly a bad value. Waiter and surroundings were very nice.
3 shrimp for 28 dollars way too much, mussels gone fowl, cheese pizza $20, wine bottle $42 dollars at Costco 8 dollars. 15 minute wait for beer. Lucky we had good service
Food was excellent, appetizers, salad, main entree and drink. The order in which they arrived they need to work on!
The new ownership has done an excellent job of keeping the dear to heart restaurant up to it’s usual standards!! We are so pleased we can still come and enjoy special occasions at this excellent restaurant and everyday dining as well!! Thank you!!
we love Casanova
Chicken entree was amazing.
Also... the fish piccata was yummy!
Better quality and tasty.
We will definitely be back about once a month.
We had gnocchi with two sauces, small serving but tasty. We originally reserved due to menu listed on trip advisor which changed and prices have increased considerably....$1 more per beer and salads went up $5.. crazy
Gonna try hi in across the way
Delicious food. Easy to get reservations. Waitress was super nice. But, they need more servers.
Have eaten at this restaurant many times. Always excellent. Very noisy when busy
The hostess Makensie was friendlyand acknowledged us right away, our food server was great for our needs throughout dinner
Dinner before Eli-Mac, Rabbitt show
Disappointed they don't offer wine by the carafe anymore! Seafood Linguine (my regular go-to, wasn't as good as previous visits. Maybe it was just the night. But not impressed.
Excellent food. We always love anything we get here! Always. I got the mushroom pasta with chicken. My husband got the duck confit with risotto special, which was done a little different. Not crispy but super tender. He was in heaven but I got a taste too!! I get the beef carpaccio and it is always generous and arugula and Parmesan is perfect combination. We will always return.
Friendly atmosphere, good food, reasonable prices and great staff. We enjoyed the calamari for starters. The pasta was homemade and the sauce was good and garlicky. My husband had the filet and when he made the waitress aware that it was overcooked she whisked it away and returned in just a few minutes with a fresh perfectly cooked steak. Would be a good place to take the kids.
