Great gelato, lots of favors! I ate the pineapple and the strawberry the three times we ate there. It's always busy but you get through the lines quickly. Also, they sell little jellies and butters that are made in Maui. I got several jars of the pineapple butter, and it won't disappoint!

This is a great place to try some unusual gelato flavors like "sandy beach" -peanut butter salted caramel. They also have the favorites like chocolate hazelnut. Get your cone and take it to their back deck where they have benches facing the view. Their merchandise is a little overpriced, suggest you go across the street to the general store for... More

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.
