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.

“Goodbye bad manager, hello happy hour!”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

I wrote a previous review about this being a great place for lunch but not for happy hour. I'm happy to say that we have since returned to Bistro Casanova for lunch and were informed that the afternoon/evening manager was no longer with them. We decided to give happy hour another try and had a fantastic time. Food is good. Drinks are wonderful. Happy Hour prices are excellent. Staff was attentive. Would definitely recommend!

“Really Good!”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

We ate at Bistro Casanova with our son and daughter in law and had a very nice meal. The food was prepared using fresh ingredients, the prices were reasonable and the staff was very personable. We have eaten at Casanova's in Makawao before and are quite happy with the bistro. We would definitely return.

“Great food charming place”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Had a wonderful meal and drinks at Bristol Casanova. The servers know the menu and the happy hour drinks a delish! I would go back again but it is pricey! The setting is very nice everyone is very friendly.

“Casanova's in Kahului”
Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

Good place for tapas and some pasta with friends. Good happy hour for margaritas too. Sit outside for less noise and more privacy.
