We enjoyed our gelato at Ono's. It was not a busy night and yet some of their flavors where down to the last scoop. Some were literally melting in the pan, so it appeared, while others were a little icy in our cup/cone. Overall, the flavors were good. The prices are reasonable. The technique and execution were a bit lax... More

Always great gelato. I try to get a different kind each time we go, and all the flavors I've tried have been delicious!

This establishment is consistent and consistently busy. They offer a huge selection of interesting flavors and combinations. Everything I have tried has been excellent. On this most recent visit, they were out of coffee, but had enough left over to give a sample. I would have ordered it if there was more, so, I will have to go back.

Went there for a cup of coffee and some ice cream. The capuchino I was served was the smallest I've seen on three continents. The ice cream tasted old and icy. On top of that was the price pure highway robbery.

Gelato isn't cheap wherever you go, and.....you're in Maui so....it's relatively expensive. But the gelato was absolutely delicious! We went back two days later it was so good! I did not get a chance to eat any of the food. Customer service was great.

This is very good gelato and they have so many different options. You have to stand and eat it though whereas in Lahaina you can sit and enjoy it while soaking up the sun outside. Very nice to enjoy for an inexpensive price after a day's activities around the island. Visited January 2011 while staying in Kihei. Located in strip... More

My husband & I had gelato the day before at the ice cream shop in Paia & in my opinion theirs was much better. The service was okay here. I took 8 bites or so & threw the rest away. My husband also wasn't too impressed & didn't finish his either. He had the mint & I had the macadamia... More

Not the best gelato I have had, but still gelato, so still worth going. They have good selection and fill your cone up well. Worth checking out.

Can't deny I'm not a big fan but this stuff turned me. The four of us each had something different and we all raved about what we chose. Friendly staff - inside and outside dining. More dessert please!

The case full of colorful gelato and sorbetto options can make it hard to choose. Try a few samples, and if you order a different flavor, they'll tell you how it's different so you're not surprised. I tried two, but ordered my favorite Lilikoi in the end; they made sure I knew how tart it is. Refreshing with beautiful flavor... More
