BEST ITALIAN FOOD
When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that’s amore. And when you find yourself Upcountry, waltzing through an enchanting, low-lit dining room with a decidedly Mediterranean ambience, stopping only to be greeted and kissed by a dapper Italian gentleman you assume is the owner, and you sit down to a romantic and yet surprisingly inexpensive fourcourse meal of insalata caprese, pasta al funghi, out-of-this-world osso bucco and homemade tiramisu, and still can’t live without another serving of that wood-fired, oven-baked bread with the oil and vinegar, that’s Casanova. 1188 Makawao Ave., Makawao, 572-0220.
