Description: Manoli's Pizza Company was created with family in mind. My father, Manoli Placourakis, was born in 1925 and raised on the largest of all the Greek Islands, Crete...where the weather and water are beautiful year- round, where seafood, vegetables, and fruit are plentiful and where the bread, cheese and wine are all handcrafted, the old fashioned way. Rhonda and I are raising our son, named after my father and born on Maui in 2004, on a beautiful island with similar qualities to my father's birthplace. This leads us to Manoli's Pizza Company. Our fare here at Manoli's is centered on fresh, organic, and sustainable products whenever possible in crafting all of our pizzas, salads, and even when choosing the wines on our list. Manoli's is where healthful, flavorful foods and beverages come together in a place where friends and family meet. As 'big Manoli' used to say, "Treat your friends like family and your family like friends".​ Mahalo Aaron Placourakis

“Nice Place, Nice Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

During Restaurant Week in Wailea, Maui, HI we went to Manoli's and enjoyed a meal and enjoyed the ambience of the restaurant. The Greek salad was nice and as was the shrimp the shrimp scampi. I was told that the lasagna was delicious, but it was very unfortunate that one of the two lasagnas ordered for our table was "lost." Since our table's host was the poor guy who had to wait for his entree to show up, I don't think his rating for the evening would have been uneffected. But overall, we enjoyed the meal and the atmosphere, and would definitely go there again.

“Nice open air seating, average pizza, average service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Family of five ate dinner here. We sat outside on a beautiful Maui night. The waiter was friendly but not so attentive. He did save us a few bucks by writing up the order for the kids a certain way, so that was appreciated. Water glasses were not promptly refilled and the pizza was average, at best. There was no visible sauce, the pineapple was canned and it didn't come out all that hot. The waiter recommended the Plack's salad, which was delicious. The kids ate pasta and meatballs.

There are better places to eat, but a family with kids can do ok here. We probably won't return on our next trip to Maui, though. I think it was around $60 total.

“Pizza was Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Pizza was not anything special but it was good to have a casual place to dine in Wialea. We liked that we could dine casual after a round of golf. All in all it was a good casual restaurant.

“Lovely evening at Manoli's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013 via mobile

Staying at Elua Village, we kept seeing Manoli's as we drove in and out of the area, and were intrigued by the location (NOT part of a hotel or strip mall), its potential for evening views, and how pretty it looked at night all lit up. Decided to walk up there our last night, after a quick glance at recent reviews. We were very pleased with everything. It was in crowded and we had a pleasant table at the "rail" to catch the breeze. We love thin crisp crust pizza, and this was perfect. Had the personal trainer pizza, and highly recommend it (with a few shakes of Parmesan and red pepper flakes). Our green salad with arugula and tomatoes was huge, very fresh and perfectly dressed. Very reasonable dinner, delicious, and lovely atmosphere. Highly recommend.

“never again”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

We came to eat here because from the outside it looks really nice, and pizza I their main deal. It was very disappointing: The hostess with the buff arms was openly talking smack with a waitress about someone on staff right in front of us (I don't want to hear your drama when I came to enjoy a nice meal). The service was sloooooooooooooooooooow, the food was nothing special. My beer took forever, it's a miracle I ate it with the pizza, not after, and buff-arms lady didn't even bother to say goodbye or thank you as we left, which is straight up rude, and doesn't really jive with the vibe the place is trying to project.
