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.

Large choice.
Friendly service.
The only one that we found open in the evening.
Comfortable parking in the next supermarket parking lot that was already closed.

“Ono..best..yummmmmm!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Surfing Goat Mil, Coconut, so many fresh, often organic, always luscious sensuous treats. The folks who work here know what customer service is all about. The coffee is very good, too. Just the thing after a day at the beach.

“Delicieuse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013 via mobile

Tres delicieuse et tres chers.
Many flavours of Hawiian fruits. As good as any gelato in Italy, but at twice the price.
Small cup - about 6 oz - $4.75
Medium cup - $5.75
Large cup - $6.75
Hawaii has become more expensive than Rome.

“Mangia Ono Gelato”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

Lives up to the Paia location. Service is friendly, welcoming and quick to offer a taste of the wonderful gelato. I've had ice cream around the world and Ono Gelato ranks high. Nothing beats a cool scoop of Ono after a hard day at the beach. Ask for samples and decide what you like the best, at least at that moment. Price is comparable to gelato prices in Seattle and beats the price in the EU. Great gelato takes fresh ingredients, imagination and a dedicated craftsman, Ono has it all. I would be happy to eat Ono any time and when on Maui I try for it everyday.

“Yummy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Great tasting, love the tasters and the staff was friendly. My only concern is inquiring about eggs in the gelato. The website states there are some with it. When asking staff which ones they had no clue. Actually stating there is none. So not great for someone with allergies.
