All dishes have distinct tastes, not your classic italian dinner stop, super kid friendly too. They sat our group of 9 in a private room and the kids could be loud and no one could hear them. (nice touch Pulehu). We would book dinner at 5:30 and enjoy the classic sunset as the tiki's are lit.

Pulehu boasts that it is an award winning Italian restaurant. The setting and ambience in front of a spectacular Koi pond at the Westin Villas at Ka'anapali certainly works its magic. The appetizers were very good - the calamari was truly unique and excellent. The short ribs, however, were bland and very disappointing - great for a cafeteria or old... More

great food for parents and kids. They had a 200 year old pizza recipe that is the talk of the trip. The seafood here is amazing too. The service makes it all worthwhile too.

We chose this restaurant because of its location - that it was in our hotel, and also overlooking the koi ponds. I am fascinated by koi fish, what can I say! We also like Italian food, but who doesn't? This restaurant was rather average. I was disappointed that despite our early dining time all the tables by the koi were... More

We stay at the Villas every two years, went to Pulehu in '12, thought it was worth going back. I am not sure what has happened, but the servings were just about microscopic, felt so bad for our adult kids who were hungry by the time we got back to the villa. The entrees are too small for the price... More

this is an Italian restaurant at the Westin time share. In my life time I have never sent back everything we ordered ,but I guess there is a first time for everything. we started with an artisan pepperoni flatbread. it was round ,greasy , nasty and devoid of any flavor and they have a wood fired pizza oven! It went... More

We had a wonderful evening with friends at Pulehu, An Italian Grill, thanks to tasty, well presented appetizers, dinners and desserts. The combination of Mediterranean flavors with grilled local fish and scallops made dinner both visually inviting and of great excitement to our tastebuds. Starting with perfectly prepared martini's and warm Hawaiian bread, and ending with a combination of Chef... More
