We stop here every time we're on Maui for a "Mommy and Daddy date night" Reasonably priced delicious Italian food right in the middle of Makawao town. They also have a deli to grab a quick breakfast or lunch.

This is a typical Italian restaurant, menu wise at least. The pizza's are huge, you may want to consider sharing, or at least ask advise if you are in a multi person group. The pasta menu is OK, both for taste and portion size The...More

We made reservations here for our last day. It's a great stop for dinner if you're looking to fill time before a red eye flight. It opens for dinner, but the downtown Makawao, an upcountry area known for agriculture and ranching has little shops to...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.
