Tasted almost like Italy, my boyfriend fell in love with cookie dough ice cream in the waffle cones. People were super nice!

There's ice cream, gelato (my personal fave), and shave ice; between the family we tried them all and it was all good. The young girl who helped us was friendly and helpful. Mahalo!

This is the tasty gelato and ice cream in Maui. The service is excellent and the ice cream couldn't be better. We were thrilled with the Gluten Free option offered also

We tried this one evening and the staff was very nice. I didn't want any ice cream, but wanted to taste one flavor. I told the server this, and she said that that was fine. The ice cream is very smooth and flavorful. They have vegan 'ice cream', as well.

Maui Gelato's got it all going on! Lots of ice cream, gelato, shave ice and waffles! While we didn't try the waffles, everything else was yum. They even have a very rich sugar-free chocolate gelato, which is delicious. Friendly staff, too.

Went here after dinner to get some dessert. The gelato was absolutely delicious and they gave you free samples to try all the flavors that you wanted. The employees were wonderful and funny as well. Highly recommend.

Maui Gelato now serves up waffles with the same care and attention they give their amazing gelato. Open Monday through Saturday 8AM to 9:30 PM, you can order Belgian waffles with toppings like bananas, macadamia nuts, caramel and whipped cream, or tropical waffles with kiwis, banana and strawberries. The waffles are fantastic. My kids wanted me to point out that... More
