Not the best gelato I have had, but still gelato, so still worth going. They have good selection and fill your cone up well. Worth checking out.

Can't deny I'm not a big fan but this stuff turned me. The four of us each had something different and we all raved about what we chose. Friendly staff - inside and outside dining. More dessert please!

The case full of colorful gelato and sorbetto options can make it hard to choose. Try a few samples, and if you order a different flavor, they'll tell you how it's different so you're not surprised. I tried two, but ordered my favorite Lilikoi in the end; they made sure I knew how tart it is. Refreshing with beautiful flavor... More

Parking is a little work, park out front of the Taco Bell and walk over. Giant double display case. Went for the super dark rocky road. Very cold, so it held up well to the temperature outside. Chocolate is deep and rich, with some walnuts and marshmallows scooped up on the top of the cup. Leaves a good mouth feel... More

Went here with my wife after dinner and they were very friendly and the Gelato was very good. I would recommend trying this place if you are in Kihei. They have A LOT of flavors to choose from.

Ono Gelato covers about flavor imaginable so that on the good side. You can sample as much as you want or so it seems - that's another plus. Once you decide on a flavor be ready to pay dearly for it. I did not ask how many ounces are in each serving size but the smallest size in a cup... More

Amazing selection of gelato. And the servings are very generous! They are patient as you try 2, 3, 4 flavors before you decide. And with a smile on their faces, and yours!

They have a variety of big sandwiches and lots of flavors of gelato to choose from. Sandy Beach was my favorite.

This is a Family Run little business - everyone helps out some! They have good hearts and try hard to make satisfied customers! There is a nice range of flavor options. If you have something particular that you desire, they might even make it for you (if you are in town for a few days). They are allergy aware and... More
