This restaurant is located in a strip mall within easy walking distance from the Hyatt at Gainey Ranch. Much of their business seems to be take-out but they have a very nice area inside in which to eat. It looked spotless and nicely decorated. All...five of us really enjoyed our meals. The breaded ravioli, the spaghetti carbonara, and the meatballs were some of our favorites. They did have wine and beer, but they close at six (which might bother some people). The service was excellent as was the food and it was one of the most reasonable meals we had in Scottsdale. We'll definitely be back on our next trip to Scottsdale!More

My husband got a lunch plate. I had a build your own pasta plate. We were both really impressed with our food. The presentation was great. The food tasted even better. Our server was busy doing so many things, but also attentive. We sat outside...on their patio. The sunshine was lovely. We will definitely be going back!More

This place is a little out of the way but worth it! My daughter's said it was the best Cesar's salad they ever had. I had Spinach Gorgonzola Tortellini and it was exceptional. Everything we had was very fresh and looked great. We were disappointed...that they did not have Tiramisu available but would have been too full to eat it.More

Took our 16 year old twins here for their birthday because they want pasta. They loved it. It was the best Italian food in Scottsdale. Everything was fresh and tasted amazing. We went there on a Friday night and 6:30 and were the only one's...there for an hour. Rachel was our waitress. She was fun to interact with and provided outstanding service. The Caesar said was fantastic as well as the Mozzarella Sticks. I also ordered their soup which tasted great. I ended the meal by ordering Fettuccine with Gorganzola sauce and Sausage & Peppers toppings. We bought Cheese Cake for take away. We will be dining here again, and again.More

We went there as a 'group' of six for a late dinner. The food was good but the service was just okay. It seems as if they were more interested in closing up on time than serving us. We'd try it again, though.

We've tried many Italian restaurants in the 10 years that we've lived in Scottsdale, and this is by far The Best! Everything was so fresh tasting, and the service was very friendly and knowledgeable. The Breaded Ravioli appetizer was fantastic, as were our entrees. The...restaurant is very small, so either get there early or make a reservation.More

We are so glad we discovered Maui Pasta! The service was excellent and the food delicious. We enjoyed the spaghetti carbonara, Caesar salad, Parmesan risotto, and short rib ravioli soooooo much. Mozzarella sticks were some of the best we’ve ever had. We would definitely recommend!!!

This small restaurant has fabulous freshly made pasta dishes all natural and fresh ingredients. Generous helpings and delightful spices make this a great place for lunch or dinner - they also have take-out.

What an a amazing find for some real authentic homemade pasta!! We ordered the spinach tortellini gorgonzola pasta to split amongst 2 people and had 2 side salads. The pasta was the best I have ever eaten and it was so fresh and FANTASTIC!! The...sauce added such amazing flavor and some texture. We ordered a bottle of the red Chianti 2017 and it was really good! We ended the night with the homemade raspberry cheesecake and OH WOW was it amazing!!! Just the right amount of sweetness and a homemade raspberry topping. If I lived in town, I would have ordered a few slices to go! This was such an amazing find and would definitely be back. The only reason why I didn't give it a 5 star was the service. Our server Jessica was not attentive to our table. It wasn't busy at all as there was only one other table she was attending to at the same time. We requested bread 2x and she never brought it till the end of dinner after seeing the next table getting a bread refill 2x prior with another server. The other server ended clearing our table and refilled our drinks as well.More

Extraordinary food (especially the pasta). Robbie may be the best waiter we've encountered in the last decade (and we travel worldwide). Meatballs were as big as your head and tasted like Mama had made them herself. Caesar salad very, very good. Egglplant parm...wow! And as...unlikely as it might be...save some room for the tiramisu. Again, tasted like my Italian grandmother's. Gainey Ranch location offers a quiet respite. And biggest surprise. The bill. Fraction of what we expected.More

Knowing I was having pasta for dinner and reading the reviews that everything is made in house, I went hunger. I was not disappointed! Location is very cute and welcoming - including everyone on staff up to the owner. Garlic bread - good crunch and...flavor. Caprese salad simply, right? Best one ever with burrata and shredded Pecorino that you can taste. I had carbonara - one of my favorite dishes. You can tell the pasta is made in house and it was totally decadent. Should have worn stretch pants! Reasonable prices including the wine list (mostly Italian but excellent options). I will be back and already have some other folks in mind who will need to visit! Thank you!More

We've eaten there three times so far and taken friends. Everything served at Maui Pasta is made right there in their facility, right down to the salad croutons. Portions are large and they allow you to share. Their food is a taste treat. They offer...a substantial menu. They also have a bakery and beside a few choice items, make their own delicious pastry delights. They offer take-out and sandwiches too, as well as vegetarian and vegan choices. The people are wonderful to deal with. The owner comes from Maui, but this is true Italian food at its very best. They have indoor and outdoor eating areas. If I could eat there everyday, I wouldn't hesitate.More

This is a great find! It’s a little confusing because of a Hawaiian island name associated wit an Italian restaurant, but overcome you hesitation. The decor is bright and “island-like”--not your typical red-checked tablecloth Italian restaurant. There is a front section with a small market...where you can buy desserts and premade pasta dishes. There is a nice little patio for outside dining. We sampled the arancini and fried zucchini as appetizers and both were excellent. We had a pasta arrabbiata and spaghetti carbonara. The carbonara was made correctly without any cream (!) and was great, as was the arrabbiata. All the pasta is homemade. You get a soup of salad with the entree and the mushroom soup was among the best we ever had. As was the creme brûlée we had for dessert (even though we had no room for it!) Service was great and the price was right. You’ve gotta try it.More
