Great Gelato Made Daily

Seriously, this was the most glorious gelato ever to be experienced. The mango flavor tasted like a real, ripe mango, and the peanut butter with graham crackers, chocolate and sea salt was to die for!!

We walked across the street to Ono Gelato after the great fish tacos at Coconut Fish Market. The server was incredibly nice and helpful, and the Mango and passion fruit flavors were ok. Amazing gelato in the Lapperts at Shops at Wailea, or even the Island Gourmet Market, same place.

Not cheap ($7 for 2 scoops) but good exotic flavors. Try the lilikoi. Tart and yummy. In my opinion better than ice cream.

Of the many times we've visited Kihei this was our first visit to Ono Gelato. As soon as my husband and I walked in we were greeted and welcomed to the shop with a friendly smile and "how may I help you". We both ordered the chocolate mint gelato which knocked our socks off! This gelato is made with fresh... More

The first time we went the gelato was great...service with a smile. We thought it was great so went back the next evening. Gelato still tasted great but our server only gave us a half serving. Actually it was probably less than half. I really have no idea what was going on but it was astonishing! Stunning even! CAN NOT... More

Aloha Scott, As I responded on Yelp, I would appreciate more details about your experience as I too am not quite sure what happened as our cup sizing was the same from one day to the next. Additionally, I would like to follow up with the team working both evenings to ensure our guests are having the same experience from... More

The last time we visited Maui, Ono only served gelato. This was good with us, as their gelato absolutely ROCKS! However, since our last visit, they have since added sandwiches and salads. Well, the gelato is fantastic, so we figured we try the sandwiches. I ordered the lobster salad and my boyfriend the rueben. Holy toledo...were we ever happy!!! The... More

My last night visiting friends in Maui, my friend took me here. We had just eaten dinner across the street, this was the perfect cap to the evening. The gelato was delicious, they had lots of flavors and they were free with samples. It was nice to sit outside, and enjoy the weather. I think we ordered a small or... More
