“Fresh veggies and perfect pizzas...a gem in Maui!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

We ate here after visiting the Maui Ocean Center. We ordered a pizza, a salad, and a Mac and cheese. The pizza crust was thin and crisp and the veggies were very fresh and perfect in texture. There were zucchini, yellow squash, pepper, and other veggies...especially great for non meat eaters. The sauce and cheese were applied lightly so the veggies shined. We could have ordered it it vegan. I tasted my grandson's Mac and cheese. It was the best I have ever tasted! The salad was very fresh! The wait staff was welcoming and helpful! Well done, Porto!

“Very good the first time, not as good thereafter!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

The first time I ate at this restaurant (8PM) about five months ago it was very good. The service was caring but a bit slow especially since there were only three people in the restaurant besides my guest and me. We had Pizza and enjoyed the wine.

The second time was for dinner and the Pizza was just so-so..Service was very poor..especially with only two other people dining.

The third time was at 11AM for lunch when the restaurant just opened. I ordered the vegetable soup and a pizza . The soup and I asked the waiter and cook to sample after I tasted it was merely warmed water poured over some vegetables. That the truth and if I did not have two guests and the restaurant taste it and agree with me, I might have my taste buds examined. The Pizza was also not that good. The service was terrible and as a local, I won't return.

The ownership of the restaurant who is widely respected on Maui for conservation work needs management in that restaurant..I say that merely because I was in that business and love Pizza. Even Fabiano's whose Pizza is thin crusted and delicious sometimes has or had a variance between lunch and dinner chefs if they are different.

“Great pizza, friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

While waiting for our Kihei whale watch tour, we at here. The pizza was great, as was the sandwiches. It was a bit pricey, but the restaurant was kid-friendly and had good choices. Pepperoni pizza can't be beat. Good quality meat and cheese.
