The owner must be Italian because she made the best Torta di Mele! The cappuccino was good, but I wish the foam would've been a little thicker.

When in Lahaina, make sure to stop here for delicious cappuccino and baking! Nice seating area outside also!

I made an early morning "run" from our nearby condo most of the 15 days on our recent visits. Excellent espresso & lattes, with a selection of dolci - all good; There might be a bit of a wait at times. It is very popular.

I have been coming here since it opened. This wonderful lady from the Lake Como/Milan region makes the best HOMEMADE cakes in town. Especially the almond cake. The coffee is fabulous as expected. Also try the Orange Chocolate cake!

We visited here several times during out stay. The brevi was fantastic. The full rich flavor of the espresso without bitterness was very delicious.

Loved that this was about a block or two from Front street so could park and grab a coffee. Had the Americano and a Latte - both delicious. Tried lemon blueberry cake - thought that was just :"okay" - coffee and service - fabulous.

The best italian coffee on Maui. The cappuccino is just like you get in Italy and the owner is very friendly and welcoming.

Six kiwis happened upon this little treasure! The coffee was very much to our liking and we returned a few days later for a second visit! The cakes were fresh and tasty and the sandwiches freshly made to order. Well worth a visit for a tasty light lunch or afternoon snack.

we drive here from kihei for the most tasty, perfect mocha on the island. The owner is wonderful and offers a great menu of specialty coffees, paninis, and smoothies. Nothing beats a real Italian coffee. . .flavorful and full-bodied without a hint of harshness. Delightful ambiance in the outside seating. One of my favorite places!!!

Earlier this month I spent ten glorious days in Lahaina, right around the corner from Espresso Italiano. What a great, little place. The owner is fantastic, and the food ~ awesome! I probably ate breakfast here six out of ten mornings. I could have lived off the mocaccino smoothies. God, they were good! And out of curtesy, the owner always... More
