Description: Bistro Casanova is located at the ground floor of the Kahului office building, a four stories property across the street from Kahului beach, just one mile from Kahului airport. Your GPS device will probably lead you to the large parking space behind the building. You can gain entrance to the Restaurant both from Kaahumanu Avenue, where a large awning with the sign Bistro Casanova will guide you from the parking stalls to the front door, and from Lono Avenue, where a large sign shows the entrance from its main address: 33 Lono Avenue. In both cases, you'll have no problem in finding parking, day or night time. See you inside, where you'll be able to choose a table in the air conditioned dining rooms or "al fresco", in the lanai. Bistro Casanova awards winning cuisine is often recognized as the best option for a memorable meal in busy Kahului, before or after a trip to the airport or a show in nearby theaters and movies houses. Since 2009 Bistro Casanova is a very popular destination because of its tapas, pastas, steaks and fresh seafood. Discover why.

We visited Bistro Casanova for a late evening dinner following an annual Maui Cultural Show at Baldwin High School upon the recommendation of family resident on Maui. Their Pasta is reportedly freshly made daily so we order from the several interesting menu selections. Very Tasty indeed!. In addition the restaurant has a nice bar with Maui Brewery Draft Beer on Tap. Wait Staffers are friendly and responsive. We will return on our next Maui visit for an Italian Pasta meal.

after eating Hawaiian food for 3 weeks I was looking for something different. Well the Pasta and wine here is very good. I loved the Ravioli Alforno it went very well with My Chianti Reserve. The soup was just enough of a starter that I did not have to have dessert after the main meal. although i think I missed out

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Bistro Casanova. Our Paella includes saffron rice tossed with 4 shrimp, 4 mussels, 4 clams, 2 scallops and a whole 'chorizo' (Spanish sausage), sliced in bytes, beside the chicken braised in red wine (hence the dark color). Somehow something went really wrong in the kitchen, if you only got what you described. We will also work on the chewiness of the calamari. Your words help us to correct our mistakes. We are proud of our Paella, and we receive many compliments about it. We want to keep it that way.

This is a good restaurant, one that you need to expect to spend some time at. 11after 2 weeks of eating on the go, or just at places lacking service, this was a nice change. Went there because had heard good things about it and had the time to kill before a flight out. Ate at.the bar, decent drink specials as well. Seemed like mostly locals.

We have been here a couple times and wanted a nice meal before the mapa show at the Castle Theatre.
The ricotta and spinach ravioli with white sauce was good. But the ricotta was invisible and the sauce was thin. But still tasty.
I tried the pesto and shrimp dish which was actually a bit dry and the 4 shrimp were small.
The requested Parm was delivered in a small cup instead of shaved or twisted at the table.
I would suggest a small bottle of olive oil on the table to dip your bread in and add to the pesto for
Flavor and moisture.
We ll be back again, maybe tapas.
