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

“The bum's rush?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

First time we ordered a margarita pizza to go. It was really good and at $16 bucks not a bad deal. Tonight we decided to eat in the restaurant. 6 pm and lots if room to spare. No lineups, no problem. While we appreciate that a restaurant wants to do high customer turnover, I've never been served so fast in my life. Drinks ordered and whammo, they are there. We've barely had time to look at the menu and the waiter wants to take our order. "Give us a minute" we said and that's all we got before he was back to take our order. Ok, so we ordered and the salads were on the table within 3 minutes. No lingering over our cocktails. Lets get busy! We had not finished our salads before the main course was on the table. We commented to ourselves that this was faster than a fast food restaurant . We really didn't get a chance to enjoy or savour our dinner. The table next to us managed to move their family of four in and out the door in no time at all. Hey, if they customers are lined up to get in, the quick turnover is appreciated. If the restaurant is almost empty, what's the rush. I don't blame our waiter. He's just doing what he's told. In fairness, the salads were yummy and by Maui standards generous. The chicken piccata looked a little pale and lost in a beige sauce. My bolognese sauce was average at best. The pizzas are good though with a nice thin crust. But fellas, give us a chance to enjoy the beautiful view and relax a bit. After all,we are supposed to be on Maui time!

“Great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Great casual place for pizza and salads. Pizza is good but the salads are big, fantastic and very reasonably priced. Also great for kids if they like cheese pizza but they also have pasta and non Italian selections if they don't. The pizza crust is very thin and crispy. The service was excellent and friendly. Highly recommend this if you are traveling with kids and need a break from Maui high prices.

“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.
