Ran across this while visiting aquarium. It is in a little shopping/restaurant plaza sharing same parking lot. A nice surprise. The pizza's were very large and filling. No gluten free menu, but were able to accommodate with a great salad. Beet salad with, fresh grapefruit and the maui goat cheese and homemade papaya dressing on side. Had similar salad at Spago night before for $25 instead of $9. This one was better! Good friendly service. You won't be disappointed here. There is a harbour with great views behind the plaza and a little ice cream cookie shop for some dessert after. Visiting the mini golf right down the street too. Much to do in this little area. Wouldn't hesitate to return.

Took my family here for lunch after coming back from Ioa Valley.

It's a pretty small establishment, but there is outdoor seating available. We were seated within minutes and service was good and fast.

The pizza was excellent and I highly recommend it - the best I've had in Maui so far.

My family and I went to this pizza place for lunch on a rainy day. The pizza was pretty yummy. But the service was slow and I think the servers should have had some more experience. I think that they had a perfect location in a mini mall close to where I was staying.

I stopped here after going on a whale watch. Julie was my server and she kept my iced tea glass refilled which was really appreciated after the two hours on the water! The salad was full of fresh veggies and had the dressing on the side without having to ask. The Maui roasted veggie pizza was so good. The pizza crust is thin and crispy thanks to the wood oven and the veggies flavorful topping. Wish I had known about this place earlier in my stay in Maui.
