A small size gets you one flavor, a medium gets you two flavors. Try the passion fruit! I was amazed to discover it tasted just like the real thing.

I tried the passion fruit flavor and really liked it. I definitely recommend it after shopping at Front Street.

We made a dessert stop at Ono Gelato while shopping after dinner. I have never tried Gelato before. The gelato server did a nice job explaining what gelato was and she gave me a small taste. We all got the medium size gelato for $6.00 each. This was a nice treat. The back deck has a nice view of Front... More

I come here every time I'm in Lahaina. And every time is a great experience. Very kid-friendly, service is fast and the girls working are so sweet. My favorite gelato is macnut, but I got a new flavor called trail mix and it was awesome- I hope they have it again next time- it was yogurt gelato with a bunch... More

The Gelato was absolutely delicious! Great selection of flavors. Must try the macadamia nut and the chocolate coffee mix. The girls that were working tonight need a vacation or a new job. Not one smile or any positive gesture at all.

The care and originality put into this gelato is unmatched! These flavors are so rich and full and things I would have never thought to have as a gelato! You can tell that the owners and managers really take pride in their work! They even have great food. I was all around thrilled with every experience I had here over... More

Ono is a great spot to stop for a mid afternoon frozen treat while visiting the shops on Front Street. I tried the flavours with local ingredients - macadamia nut, pineapple, coconut and pina colada. All very good, but the coconut was stellar. Theres a nice deck out back where you can enjoy your gelato and take in the view... More

Gelato was ok, but while sitting on the deck outside, a rat ran across the railing. I had to dump my gelato and leave because it was gross.

The gelato served at Ono Gelato is delicious! We have gone to Ono Gelato over the past five years and have never been disappointed. My personal favorite is the chocolate chip mint and my husband likes the coffee crunch. On this visit, we took the opportunity to sit on the back patio which overlooks the ocean. It was a great...

This is where to go if you want the REAL gelato! I tried some other place and almost gagged from tasting their so called gelato, and ended up throwing it away. Ono Gelato is authentic, so just come here, and stay away from those other gelato places.
