“Worth driving from Kihei for this meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013 via mobile

Our family of four went for dinner after a recommendation and we were all very pleased with our meals. My husband and I shared a very unique flavourful pizza and the kids chose their individual favourites. All of us were happy with the yummy artisan pizza & good service. I would have preferred a stemmed wine glass for my red wine, but I'm willing to let go because of the pleasant experience all around.

“Very good pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

We had lunch at Porto and the pizza was delicious. We were seated and served by a very friendly and efficient waitress named Julie. We had sandwiches and pizzas at our table. All the food was very good. The dining room is small but comfortable and some tables have a nice view of the ocean. The restaurant is located in the mall next to the Maui Aquarium and is part of the Pacific Whale Foundation. Profits from the restaurant help support the work of foundation.

“Great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

We just finished devouring a large pizza amongst my family of four. Shared a 1/2 pepperoni and 1/2 pesto. The crust is thin and crispy, as expected of a wood fired pizza. Delicious quality ingredients! Love it! $20 for a large pizza of this caliber on Maui...in a tourist spot? Yes please!

“Great local sandwich and pizza joint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

This place is a great spot for fresh made sandwiches, salad and pizza. I would suggest any of the sandwiches and try the cucumber salad with them. For salads, try the roasted beet salad. Definitely a place you would want to go a few times if possible

“Awesome pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

The roasted veggie pizza was wonderful. The crust was perfect. I think we may have just found a new favorite pizza place on Maui.
