Description: Experience the taste of Italy in the middle of the Pacific. Saltimbocca is nestled in the lively and centrally located Ma'alaea Harbor and enjoys sweeping views of the ocean and Mount Haleakala. Located 10-15 minutes away from Kahului Airport and South Maui, and on the way to West Maui (Lahaina, Kaanapali, Napili 25 minutes away). Saltimbocca fuses affordable authentic Italian cuisine with outstanding hospitality and service that transcends both plate and palate. Featuring authentic dishes artfully crafted with the finest local and organic ingredients, and fresh breads and pasta noodles made in-house daily. We proudly offer vegan and gluten-free menus for our guests. Take in the restaurant's casual upscale ambiance while enjoying cool ocean breezes and gorgeous views of mountain, ocean and harbor from our patio, dining room and bar and lounge.

The view of the harbor and beyond make this a great setting, added in excellent food and service, summed this as the backdrop for a magical evening. In addition to the regular menu, there are gluten free and vegan choices. I had the gluten free pasta and it was excellent. My partner tried the pumpkin ravioli and was quite happy with her choice. Good cocktails and a tasty dessert made for a nice culinary experience. The ambiance rounded it out as the perfect evening for us.

My husband and I were looking for a place to have pupus and cocktails and randomly ended up at Saltimbocca. We did not know anything about it and were extremely surprised by the excellent service, food and ambience of this restaurant! Everything was of high quality and all staff was friendly, attentive and pleasant. It is thrilling to have such a wonderful restaurant to not only go to on a regular basis but recommend to others. The food was delicious! We had the mushroom and goat cheese bruschetta on home baked bread, Caesar salad, pumpkin ravioli house made, eggplant parmigiana, and tiramisu! They really know how to make you feel at home. We will definitely be back.

I am a Certified Pastry Chef ( www.sincrediblepastries.com) on vacation in Maui with my family.
Absolutely EVERYTHING at "Saltimbocca" was top notch!
Cocktails Negroni and Limoncello punch perfect
Appetizers Calamari and Prawns and the Caprese salad fresh and delicious
Entree Osso Bucco (falling-off-the-bone) risotto cooked perfectly-creamy but still al dente) Mahi Mahi with a tomato-based sauce, and a Crunchy polenta cake-creamy inside-AMAZING! two pasta dishes, both delicious
Desserts Tiramisu, Panna cotta with fresh berries and hazelnut Semifreddo-Authentic Italian desserts all excellent. Matthew our server couldn't have been nicer. Ambience beautiful. Kitchen impeccably clean

Unless you are at Maalaea for something else, I'd pass on this place. I have eaten here on several occasions and have yet to have a completely satisfying meal. There is always something that is under seasoned or just plain bland. The staff is never quite up to speed because of all the changes that seem to occur on a weekly basis. ( Open for lunch, not open for lunch. Happy Hour, no Happy hour. 20% off, no 20% discount). The views are great, the restaurant itself is very nice but the food really misses the mark.
