Description: ONO GELATO HAWAII featuring THE MAUI SANDWICH SHACK ONO GELATO HAWAII IS BORN IN 2015 Ono Gelato Company was established in 2010 on the North shore of Maui, with the goal of creating traditional Italian gelato with an Island Flair. Upon the success of this location, Ono Gelato opened additional locations including the current Kihei location. As of June 2015 Nicol and James Bradley are the new owners of Ono Gelato in Kihei. Under this new ownership in Kihei, ONO GELATO HAWAII is born. Ono Gelato Hawaii still has the same goal: producing the finest and freshest traditional Italian gelato with fresh, natural, local and organic ingredients on the beautiful Island of Maui. Ono Gelato Hawaii is still located in the Azeka Market at 1280 South Kihei Road. Nicol and James are committed to upholding the fine quality and styling of gelato making in Kihei and in July 2015 they introduced The Maui Sandwich Shack. NOW Two Great Cafe's in One Location.

I love that Ono Gelato has a whole section with Non-Dairy options. The Lilikoi is the best! and dark chocolate, wow is all I have to say!

“Can't go wrong”
Reviewed February 15, 2013 via mobile

This must be franchise place, we found no matter where in Maui we went for Ono Gelato it was the same in taste. Very good and lots to choose from. You can sample different flavors to help you choose what you want. We joked around about how the sample spoons are bigger than the spoons you get when you order your Gelato. A must try place.

Thank you for you review. We are not a franchise but each store is individually owned by a group of like minded foodies so we each stay true to our recipes and quality of ingredients.

“Great variety, great service”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Great variety and well priced. The thing that stands out most is their service, with generous samples, the 2 workers were super friendly. We went late at night and struck up a long conversation regarding places to go and see! :D
Thanks!!

“Ripoff”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

We thought for the money, it was a ripoff. You didn't get much for what it cost. You were better off walking down to McDonalds & getting a sundae or a flurry

Thank you for the review, I am glad you enjoyed our gelato! Good pick too passion fruit is our most popular sorbet, using the fresh fruit allows to keep the crunch of the seeds.
