This was my second visit to Saltimbocca but the first time with my family. All the staff was very friendly and accommodating. Our server, Matthew, gave a great overview of the menu and made great recommendations. The 3 children enjoyed their pasta very much. We tried different appetizers, 2 salads, and 4 dishes for the adults. We all shared the food family style. The service was very efficient and the food came quickly. The flavors were excellent. The osso bucco was outstanding and the meat was falling off of the bone. Every dish had great flavor and seemed to complement each other. The food was outstanding and we certainly are planning to come back. I certainly would recommend the restaurant to any one who enjoys authentic Italian food.

Very pleasant room that opens onto a large patio overlooking the harbour. Our server did a good job and was very friendly without going over the top. The problem was the food could have been so much better than it was. We both had pasta dishes for our main courses and the preparation and flavours were just plain lacking. Our server emphasized that all the pastas are made in house daily and certainly they were fine; it was the sauces that disappointed us. Add in the typical high Maui prices and...

We travelled to Ma Alaea Harbor for an Italian dinner. The surroundings, decor and view of the Harbor are outstanding. The restaurant is large and artfully finished. The hostess was most pleasant and seated us at a table for two, but right beside and slightly above another dining couple. This seemed a little strange as there were only six tables being occupied in the large restaurant. We asked to be moved which presented no problem. After five minutes, the hostess poured our water. When the waitress arrived shortly after I ordered a drink, my wife wine. Twenty five minutes later my drink arrived, an inordinate long time considering the few people dining (there were also 2 couples at the bar). I can't help but wonder what the bar service would have been like if the restaurant was crowded. That was the bad - not a good start. The food was beyond excellent and the server (Rachel) was also beyond excellent. We ordered the beef carpaccio, roasted beet salad, the Osso Bucco and the Bolognese Pasta. All courses were served quickly without the feeling of being rushed. Rachel is knowledgeable, completely familiar with the menu items, and seemed to enjoy discussing the various dishes. She apologized for the delay in receiving the drink order. There is no question the food is some of the best Italian we have had, as was Rachel's service. Easily rated a "5" but for the slow start. We will return again, hopefully the owners will have rectified this small problem.
