Welcome to Kapena's Wood Fired Kitchen!

Kapena's offers visitors to Maui a "slice of the island dream". We use a custom made Kiawe Wood Fire oven to cook our pizza. When possible we source local, fresh ingredients. Our marinara sauce is made from San Marzano tomatoes and our dough is made with Caputo flour both imported from Italy. Try our locally inspired signature pizza 'Local Kine' featuring pineapple and spam!

Dedicated to the original founder, Eldon Coon, of our sailing company Trilogy, Kapena's pays homage to a legacy of providing visitors good times and great food while on Maui. We are located on the street side of the Shops at 505 in downtown Lahaina. Come in and enjoy a pizza in our newly renovated space.

    Hostess did not accept our valid OpenTable reservation (we had a conformation text and email) and told us we made it too late (on about 45 minutes notice). There were open tables which they said were being held for other customers and we were seated at the bar. That said the food was great (but a bit slow to prepare).

    We had a wonderful meal. Onion dip as a app and 3 different pizzas including one with gluten free crust. They were all good including the gluten free crust pizza. Drinks were good, beer and the kapenaritas. One of the better meals we’ve had since being on Maui since early December. Highly recommend.

    Great place for a family, or couples. Service was good, very attentive. Food came out quickly. The place wasn’t busy when we were there, but I’m betting it’s just as efficient when busy too. Pizza was some of the better I’ve had in a very long time, and I just went to New York recently and tried a lot of pizza while there 😁

    We had the wood fired pizza, Caesar salad and cinnamon roll with ice cream. It was all fantastic! The dude making salads was an artist!!! I could watch him for hours. The pizza was perfect - just as expected from the custom built pizza oven. Don’t be fooled by the simple and small restaurant, it’s a great place with very personal and friendly staff.

    We tried to get into a diff pizza place but luckily the wait was too long, so we discovered Kapena’s. They have great indoor and outdoor seating. We got our whole family in and sat in front of the wood fire oven. We ordered a cheese pizza first for the three year old and it came out right away, which was excellent for avoiding a meltdown. The pizza itself was excellent. The crust was great and the toppings were also excellent. The pizza had great sauce to cheese to toppings ratio. The pizza was enjoyed by the toddler and adults alike! We also had the pulled pork and mushroom pizzas. Both were unique and excellent. The bar also made delicious drinks. We tried the painkiller and blue green sunrise. The sunrise was herby and different while still being good. The painkiller was the perfect topical drink. The service was fast and every staff members encountered was friendly. They were able to accommodate our group, which included hungry adults and a tired hungry toddler, and kept us all smiling and happy! This place won’t remain a hidden gem for long!

    I almost did not go because of a review that said the restaurant was closed when they got there even though they made a reservation. But after thinking about it I figured they must’ve had a good reason such as an emergency or Covid etc. We decided to go and glad we did. Pizza was good and service was too..

    Just don’t understand… I booked a reservation on OpenTable for dinner at Kapena’s Wood Fired Kitchen. I received a confirmation text the day before which I confirmed. Then arrive on date of reservation only to find the restaurant closed. No sign, no notification, no answer to phone call. Left a message by 4 days later and still no call back. Someone missed the boat on this one..”fool me once…” Good luck to a business that doesn’t follow through for the customer..they don’t come back when not satisfied.
