    First time to the restaurant and it didn't disappoint. Rob from Dallas was our waiter and he was great....super friendly and outgoing. We sat outside and had great view of the harbor and upcountry. The beet salad was fantastic and more than enough to share. I had Masha's pasta and you wouldn't know it was a truffle cream sauce as it was so light and not heavy like most cream sauces.......my husband's meatballs and spaghetti was fantastic as well and we left with take home boxes. You have to end your meal with their gelato....it was in an amazing cookie crust.....nice to have such a nice restaurant near our home in Maalaea......I understand their pupus are to die for as well though we did'nt try them.

    This slice of Italy is a hidden gem. The food was amazing. It started with the fresh bread and oil which was great. The service was great as well. Rob was very informative about the menu and offered his suggestions. There were not a lot of people in the restaurant which I don't understand as the food was absolutely delicious. My husband and I tried the pasta platter which consisted of gnocchi, carbonara, and four cheese penne. They were all amazing but my favorite was the carbonara. There is great outside dinning area overlooking the ocean I bet thus would be a great spot to watch the sunset. I loved the food here!

    My Maui friends asked me to suggest a nice restaurant in which to celebrate my birthday. Though I have many favorites on Maui, I suggested we try a new venue. Saltimbocca was outstanding!!. Our waiter Rob was the best...so gracious and attentive! The food was superb...huge portions and cooked to order... the manager was gracious enough to provide fresh whipped cream for the Tiramisu which was delectable. Some items we tried (and loved!) were Caesar Salad, Cannelini Soup (perfect!), seafood pasta (excellent) and pasta Bolonase. Spaghetti and meatballs were a disappointment to one (too much cheese was her complaint..she does not eat cheese!) Remember to spray with OFF or take B6 or Skin So Soft if sitting on the wonderful patio.

    The location overlooks Ma'alaea harbor and the restaurant is designed to take advantage of the view, with openable floor to ceiling doors and outside seating. It was pretty buggy when we went at sunset so we switched to a table indoors. The beet salad lacked sharpness to offset the sweetness of the beets, candied nuts, and the dressing. The cheese was too bland to do it. The lamb osso bucco was very tasty and the accompanying risotto was done perfectly. But I found the signature saltimbocca not good. Adding a layer of eggplant is an interesting idea but I didn't care for the texture. This is a beautiful restaurant with good service. It's prices are high. If the food gets better it can be a successful " destination" restaurant.

    You couldn't ask for a better outdoor dining experience, especially toward sunset. We split the caprese salad and are glad we did because it was definitely large enough for two. The tomatoes had a lot of flavor, which was complemented perfectly with the fresh made mozzarella and pesto. My husband had the osso bucco (falling off the bone) over an interesting quinoa. I had the pumpkin raviolia -- a bit too sweet but very tasty. Our server, Rachel, was friendly and helpful. We'll be back.

    Decided to give Saltimbocca try as we love to support new restaurants. All personnel are friendly and efficient. We chose to sit outside, which proved to be a mistake as the Trades were up and blowing things all over our table. Next came the bugs! Tiny gnat like bugs kept landing in our wine and had to be picked out with a knife. Prawn/calamari appetizer was very good. Main course of gnocchi was really awful. It was way over cooked and gummy tasting. The other main was veal piccata was just ok. Potatoes were "roasted" and more like diced up breakfast spuds. Veal was tender, but not much flavor. I really hope the food improves, as otherwise they have a lot going for them.

    This is our second visit to this restaurant this year. The view is amazing and the restaurant is very beautiful. My husband enjoyed the fish of the day and I had Veal Piccata, and both were very tasty. We also had nice salads before the meal that were fresh and enjoyable. The downside was some items that were not available on the menu. They had very limited desserts due to availability.

    Saltimbocca was a pleasant dining experience. Every dish ordered was well prepared and service was very attentive. The signature dish "Saltimbocca" was excellent and also the Osso Bucco ordered over Rissoto was also good. Both dishes were well presented. We also ordered the fried calamari with shrimp and roasted beet salad. We always order the fried calamari at least once at a new restaurant which are usually completely breaded. These were very lightly breaded and tender. The best description I can give this restaurant is casual and sort of fine dining. Not that expensive, atmosphere is nice, harbor and ocean view , service is good and food is good, portions are good, good for couples, groups, special occasions or just want a nice meal out.

    We had very relaxed and enjoyable meal. The pasta with lobster was excellent. Service was relaxed...not slow...and Owners Jim and Masha were constantly checking the room and helping out where necessary. The wine we preferred was out of stock so Masha came over with several other selected bottles, all more expensive, and offered us our choice at the same price as the less expensive bottle. Beautiful location in the old Waterfront space.

    We have been to Saltimbocca several times and are never disappointed. We love the calamari and shrimp appetizer, cooked perfectly with a great sauce. The saltimbocca was excellent and my lobster tagliatelle was rich & yummy. In addition to their regular menu they are also offering regional menus each month; June was Toscana region and we went twice. July is the region Cenalazio & we can't wait to get back there

    The other night I returned to Saltimbocca with several friends, we all had a wonderful evening and amazing great food as we have had in our past four visits this year. I had a wonderful Caesar salad, it was just as good as I remember. My friend ordered the beet salad and it looked yummy with lots of beets and greens. On this visit I decided to order the Ossobuco (oven roasted lamb, served with Castilla La Mancha saffron risotto and red wine tomato sauce), and it was absolutely delicious. I recommend this dish to any foodie that appreciates Lamb. My friend Janet ordered the Veal Picatta, she said it was delicious. My friend Jane ordered the same dish that she always orders Lobster Tagliatelle. I highly recommend Saltimbocca

    We came to celebrate a Birthday with friends and was referred to go here by friends. We love Itailian food and was not disappointed. The food and desserts we ordered were excellent. We expect to come back. We had a waiter who was part Oriental and the nicest guy ever. He took the time to explain the menu and came around to make sure we were okay and if we needed anything. The staff there was very cordial and professional. The prices were reasonable and the ambiance was fantastic.

    Our dinner was great. The food at this restaurant is superb, freshly made pasta and bread daily. I'm very critical of Italian food because I am Italian and this is the first time that I can actually say the food is as good as what my mom and grandma made. By far the best calamari on the island! I had the chicken sausage lasagna and it was mouth watering delicious. My husband had the linguine with clams in a white wine sauce. He was as thrilled with his meal as I was with mine. We dined out on the terrace and watched the boats come in and the sunset over the water. The staff all get an A+ for service and friendliness. We will definitely be back to Saltimbocca's the next time we visit Maui and highly recommend a dining experience here.

    I was really happy with the menu and the selections. I was not hungry enough for a meal so I had their soup of the day which was carrot ginger and it was fabulous, then for my main meal I had the salad with the tuscon dressing which was terrific. My husband had the bolognese which he really enjoyed as well. Their bread is homemade and the serve two types focaccia and Italian sourdough, I was a little weary when the waiter said bread was sourdough because I don't usually like sourdough, but this bread was so light it doesn't taste like regular sourdough bread. Just wish they would be open for lunch.
