“Unique Flavors Abound!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

Ono Gelato has three locations on Maui, we have tried the ones in Paia and Kihei. Each time there has been some very unique flavors to sample. Most of the flavors are combinations with some unique combos like lilikoi (a Hawaiian fruit) and goat cheese or coconut and lime. If you want something different in a cold treat you should check out this place. One of my favorites is called Sandy Beach which is peanut butter, coconut, and graham cracker dust. If you go on a Monday or Tuesday you can buy a pint and get the second one half off. It is cheaper to buy a pint than individual cones or dishes, but definitely worth the money in my opinion because of the unique flavors AND you can sample all the flavors before you make your purchase!

“Great gelato selection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

This place does a great job incorporating local fruits and flavors in their offerings. We especially like the sorbet options since our son eats gluten and dairy free.

“Try the Hazelnut Chocolate!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

I love ice cream, frozen yogurt, gelato... all so good! My husband on the other hand isn't so in love. We stopped at ono for me because I was craving something sweet. Got my gelato and headed out to the car.. Yum Yum was all I kept saying till my husband tried a bite. How funny to me when he did a complete U turn to go get some for himself :)

“Only average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

As gelato officiendos, we were excited to try this after the rave reviews on trip advisor and were disappointed. It was just OK gelato - quite watery and tastes of flavors just not striking or unique
