1986 four Italian friends, just arrived from the Mainland, opened Casanova Deli in Makawao. It was an instant success. In Upcountry Maui times were ripe for cappuccino and latte, freshly baked croissants and Gourmet pastas, hot Panini over Focaccia and fresh homemade mozzarella cheese. In 1989 the large cowboy joint known as Partners, occupying the larger part of the building, folded its door and the neighbor Gourmet Deli expanded its arms. Casanova Italian Restaurant and Deli was born. An eclectic mix of family restaurant, real contemporary Italian cuisine and top of the line entertainment center, it took Maui by surprise. Since then, Casanova keeps getting top recognition every time a survey is held between Maui residents: Best Italian Restaurant, Best Pizza, Best Dinner Value, Best kid friendly Restaurant, Best Dance floor, Best Ladies night, Best Late night, Best single scene in Maui are the awards that show off on Casanova
