“Go for the Sunset, Stay for the Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

On our last evening in Wailea, 2 friends of ours took us to Ferraro's for a sunset dinner. There was no better way to end a wonderful trip.

We had a 5:30 seating. Unfortunately they have no 'ocean front' tables for 4 (which seemed off, they have it for 2, and 5 people seating) so we were seated in the first balcony with a limited view of the beach area but still an impressive view of the ocean and the sun going down - we were thrilled to be there. What stands out for us for the evening was the view, the appetizers and the friendliness of the staff. Some of our best vacation photos of sundown came on that last night, with lots of different opportunities to include some neat angles, torches and shots of guests with the sun going down in the back (see some of the photos in the review section). If you're a foodie, who's also a photo enthusiast this is a great place to book an evening meal - though your pocket book will feel it.

For appetizers the four of us decided to split the calamari and the bruschetta. Both were jam packed with flavor !! The calamari dish included shrimp as well, and all the seafood was accented with a nice blend of olives and a tasty tomato sauce. The bruschetta was colorful and tasty. Both left you wanting more - isn't that exactly what you want from great appetizers, a teaser for the entrees ?

The entrees that were enjoyed on this evening were the butter nut squash risotto with scallops and mussels (a very large plate, I'd give it a 7 out of 10), the seafood salad (not big, though extremely tasty - 8 out of 10), gnocchi (The best my wife has ever tasted - 9.5/10) , and the seafood fettucini (well balanced amount of seafood to pasta - something I'd definitely order again - 8.5/10).

The evening was a successful end to a wonderful trip. Though pricey, the view can't be beaten from that location when the sun is going down, and the food is consistently good. The service is top notch. Enjoy !!

“Island Breeze”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Cool ocean breeze and ocean views. Food good but pricey...paying most for the ambience. Loved the breakfast quesadilla and the macadamia nut waffle with coconut syrup. The fruit was fresh and delicious.
