Okay, so I went there for the gelato but got caught up reading the sandwich board. Tried the Reuben Crunch and yeah, it is the real deal! Freshly made by the owner in the kitchen, she takes pride in her product. And the gelato? It is a beautiful culinary work of art. Lots of takeout happening, too.

As a resident of Kihei, I have found that Ono Gelato has some of the best sandwiches on Maui. I have visited Ono Gelato, on several occasions. The sandwiches are a great bargain for Maui. The sandwiches are large, and good for two meals. I also enjoy the gelato at Ono Gelato. For a great lunch, I recommend Ono Gelato.... More

Gelato was ok, however I will not go back. No smile no hello. Felt like we were bothering the employee. We had gelato in Paia much better service.

We went here twice. Once is the late afternoon and once around noon. The late afternoon gelato was perfect, creamy and what you'd expect. Going at noon we were met with frozen, flavorless gelato that really turned us off from returning. It's clear they just freeze what they don't sell and then thaw in the morning, so you get more...

Lots of gelato choices and plenty of made to order sandwich choices. The kitchen doesn't open until 11am so it's hard to get a sandwich in the morning to take with you for a trip to some other island location.

Full disclosure: I love gelato. When Ono Gelato opened in Paia (north shore Maui) I was super happy and not disappointed, the gelato is exquisite. There are now two more Ono Gelatos - this one in Kihei and one in Lahaina, but it turns out they are not all the same company. The Ono in Kihei is definitely very good... More

We've been there nearly every day of our vacation. The flavor choices are wide and the portions are generous. We liked that the flavors were locally inspired e.g., lillikoi and passion fruite/orange/ guava. This gelato place is by far our favorite. There is a different gelato place within walking distance of our condo but we much preferred this place that... More

Stopped by a couple times during our stay down the road in Kihei. The gelato is very tasty as you would expect. Pricing was high but not outrageous. They had a few weird flavours....Surfing Goat Quark??? I asked what a fruit quark was after reading the ingredients list and the (new) server had no idea. Server #2 knew there was... More
