There are so many Gelato places on Maui you can be a bit picky. We both had Gelato here and when my husband and I asked each other what we thought we both said that it was okay, but not as good as several other places we had been. So...not bad, but definitely not the best of our trip. It... More

I got Lahaina Sand and could have downed a gallon. It's got macadamia nuts, coconut, salted caramel & peanuts. SO good. My wife got the mixed berry and LOVED it. It's dairy free and sugar free (no artificial sweeteners either, just fruit). We'll be back there soon.

I love Italian Gelato and this was just as good if not better. I had the coconut and macadamia nut mix. Oh it was heaven to my taste buds on a very humid and warm rainy day. Completely recommend everyone trying this out...not too rich yet very creamy and full of flavor and reasonably priced!

Walking along Front street we decided to try some gelato? Great little place, we had pistachio, salted Carmel, Lahaina Sands. All were delicious. Very friendly helpful staff? We tried multiple flavors before making our choices. My pistachio was the best I have had in years.

We strolled down to Hawaii Gelato several evenings during our stay. The staff are kind and the Gelato is delicious. It is a little pricey for the amount you get but, none the less, very tasty treat.

A small place that had many different flavors of gelato. The Gelato was good, but trying to decide which flavor to order was the hardest part. Also, it didn't help that the taste samples were so teeny that it was difficult to actually discern the flavor. In the end, we liked what we got.

Stopped for a quick snack. Had a Chocolate and a Chocolate Macadamia nut gelato. Both to die for. Very fresh and tasty. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Highly recommend.

I went here a few times after dinner or walking around. Right on Front St. I had the stratchiatella, pistachio and chocolate chip cookie dough which I really enjoyed. Reasonable prices too. You can walk and eat or there is a park across the street with benches.

I stumbled upon this place while walking along Front St. and boy was I happy. I'm no gelato expert, but this stuff was delicious and flavorful. I couldn't help but stop by another time before I left.
