Tried a couple really interesting flavors

I had the goat cheese gelato which was really interesting. Tried another interesting combo but decided it wasn't something that I wanted more of. Really friendly and high quality!

The service was great, the gelato was excellent and the walk around in the evening after a beach day was wonderful. It's a very nice, quiet, safe town to visit being one of the oldest on the island that has preserved the skinny sidewalks and original shop fronts. I would definitely go back.

I stopped while waiting for Paia Fish Market to open. My gelato was pretty good but they really skimp on the portions. Not bad, just make sure to have plenty of napkins since it melts quickly.

Ono has a shop in Khei now as well as Lahaina...and moved from Paia! The Paia shop is now run by the Picnic folks....big difference!!! Still friendly servers....still able to taste before you buy...but prices are higher and portions smaller for, frankly, not a terrific product. Yes, it is gelato...but...no longer Ono or ono😢

We come here probably 6 times in our two week stay, and the flavours they offer are amazing!! So fresh, smooth, full of fruit and the salted caramel or sandy beach are to literally die for!! It's a must stop!

Went there with my kids on a weekday morning. Line up could be an issue as this place is really in the centre of the town and lots of people would venture in. Try the local favours. Limited seating but you can sit at the coffee shop next door (providing you buy a cup of java there). Didn't try the... More

We went to the one in Paia. They had many flavours (some local), but we found it to be pricey and no better than the gelato we get at home for a more reasonable price. Having said that, you can not get Lilikoi flavour at home, so if you want to try something different, you should go. The portions are... More

So good. Parking in Paia is hard, but if you go south of the one-stop light to the Public... More
