Enjoy everything from a morning breakfast to a later-evening pizza fresh from the kitchen at Porto. We live in the area, and have wished for a place to get a good pizza....several years ago Porto opened, and we are not disappointed. Operated by the same people who operate one of the boat excursion companies, Porto is a clean, fairly intimate... More

We tried Porto for the first time a year ago and could not stop talking about how great it was, so we came back this year. Really good service, and delicious pizza. Our four young boys really liked it-- and even though its a small place , it's worth it to wait for a table. Fun play area right outside.... More

Went there last evening, ran into old friends and ended up eating together, catching up on the past couple of years. I ordered the individual sized Finocchio pizza and DW had the Margharita one. These open fire, super hot ovens are the way pizza is cooked in Italy and remind us of our trips there. Both were good. Wife also... More

Food was excellent and the price cannot be beat on Maui, in my opinion! Plus, you're supporting marine conservation and research efforts by dining here!

We were tired and looking for something quick. We had rented a condo on Maalaea Bay and found this neat little place down the street.. Wow..what a find! This is by far the best pizza I have ever eaten in my life. The pizza was so good we had it three times during our eight day stay. I would get... More

We ordered two pizzas and she came back after 20 minutes saying that one had burned and the other was salvaged. They brought mine out. Burned. His came out 10 or so minutes later. They did nothing to credit us for waiting or for the fact my pizza was burned also. Tons of flies inside. That and $3 for a... More

Obviously Porto is mainly a local restaurant since most everybody seemed to know everyone. We slipped in trying not to act to touristy and ordered up a pizza and a local IPA a brew for lunch after leaving the aquarium. While not designed as a high end type place to impress tourists, they did put out an excellent pizza which... More

Best salad with fresh organic greens that I have had on this visit to Maui. We sat there for a couple hours visiting with a longtime friend. The service was excellent, as was the food the food. This was our second visit to this restaurant.

Great place to stop for a quick snack or a full meal. Their bruschetta was delicious and different, with balsamic drizzle and kalamata olives, and the minestrone soup tasted homemade. The rosemary pizzette was also great. We will definitely be back!

We are locals and this was our first trip to Porto's. We four shared a large salad, large pizza, and eggplant parmesan. It was fresh, delicious and enough that we took home a small doggy bag - all for the kamaaina rate of $40. Happy hour beers for $3 sounded like a bargain too. The waitress was friendly and helpful...
