I don’t think this restaurant is really worth it. $18 for a less than average kids Mac and cheese, $20 for a cup of ceviche, and $30 for a pasta. I was definitely not wow’d by this place. Wouldn’t recommend.

My wife had the Mahi Mahi and said it was excellent! My son and I had the New York Strip and it was cooked well but lacked any flavor. Both of us were disappointed. Additionally, it only came with potatoes. For the price it should have at least come with two veggies. Waiter was excellent!

Read all the reviews. There are so many other awesome places close by like Humble Kitchen (awesome food and service) We had an altercation with the hostess. One person forgot a mask. She basically looked at us and told us to go buy a mask. Her delivery was rude and we didn’t respond with kindness. I would expect more from a so called high end restaurant. Then again, looking at reviews this is a common problem. We will never return here and just FYI the food isn’t that great. Go next door to Brewing restaurant! The food is awesome and the workers are friendly. PS- Check your credit card. They cancelled our reservation on open table and charged $125 for five people not showing up. Another nice move by hostess. Maybe we can pay $125 and have the $230 bill removed?

We’ve been to Longhi’s during pre-pandemic times. Today was the first time to eat here post pandemic, and we were extremely disappointed. The artichoke appetizer was nothing particularly special — salted butter with a lemon wedge. The Greek salad, for $14, was a small portion, and again not particularly special for the money. Entrées included: crabcakes, chicken piccata, New York steak, and the fish of the day, mahi-mahi. my crabcake seemed to have some puréed shell mixed in. The chicken piccata what is your typical breast meat that was over cooked – – deep-fried too long and was very crusty. The New York steak appeared good, although I did not have a taste of it. It was preoared as ordered medium well. The mahi looked well prepared, but i could expect the same thing at other restaurants for ~20% less in price. Overall, this was a poor showing and not a good value for your bucks. Unless I see some consistent improvement in positive reviews, I will wait to return in the future.

Let me begin by saying our server, Sydney, was the only saving grace for this restaurant. When we arrived at 6:40, we were told they were fully booked for the night. I opened my Open Table app and discovered Longhi’s had a table for 4 available at 7. I made the reservation, which required a credit card number to hold the table. When we arrived at the front station we were told that our reservation would not be honored because we had already been told the restaurant was full. We pointed out that we now had a reservation, and were begrudgingly seated, in an area obviously not normally used for service. Our waitress was pleasant and friendly, prompt and gracious. No bread on the table… in an Italian Restaurant! The shrimp was overcooked. The steak was unseasoned. The mashed potatoes were cold. No fresh parmesan… at an Italian Restaurant. The bathrooms were filthy. Avoid this place. Or make reservations on Open Table just to make them mad.

My wife and I made a 5 pm reservation to celebrate our 46th wedding anniversary. When we showed up early at 4:45, the restaurant was just 15% full at most. There were 9 nice, round tables along the perimeter of the restaurant with 2 of them occupied by two other couples. The hostess led us to sit at a small wood table up against a column. When I asked her if we could sit at one of the larger, round tables which were in a better location, she said no! I then asked her why there were two couples already sitting at 2 of the 9 tables but we were not allowed to sit there. She replied "well, they had reservations and they came early". To which I replied, "well, I also have a reservation and I came early". She still said firmly NO, saying they had over 240 people that wanted to have dinner with them that evening and they were going to be busy. This resistance to a simple request put a damper on our entire evening. When we left the restaurant at 6:45 pm, 6 of the 9 tables that they had refused to sit us at remained empty. Also, never once did they wish us a Happy Anniversary or do anything special to commemorate it, even though I put it in our reservation notes. I do not plan to dine at Longhi's again or to recommend it to anyone coming to Maui for a special occasion.

Host didn’t even say a peep when we showed up. Just walked us to the table and didn’t say anything. Then a table next to us that showed up after was served drinks before we even were acknowledged. Once waiter came and took our drink order (15min later) everything felt cool until the food came.

One would think a $50 steak would have at least some flavoring. All you could taste was a burnt edges of the meat. Didn’t even want to test out the dessert menu. No wonder why the Lahaina location went out of business.

The older hostess is not welcoming. She was more unfriendly 2 weeks ago than today.
No aloha spirit. Our guests appeared to be happy with their food, the fish in fish and chips was dry but the batter is nice. Our wait person was very sweet.

Made reservation for inside. Ended up outside, was told to take it or leave it or wait an hour. Wasn’t busy at first, but got busier through the evening. No veal. But was told the hostess should have told us - she didn’t. Had two different chicken plates, they were excellent!!

Server was excellent. Chef accommodated my picky kids Food was just OK. Esp. For the prices. Disappointed nothing was included with the entrees—No Bread service despite it being Italian. No dinner salad options. So it was just OK and I think it’s pricey for being completely a la carte given the food being just good and not great.

The food was awful!
One of the dishes The noodles were under cooked and the taste was dull and under seasoned. Just basic salt would have improved the dish.
The other main dish was cold and the Alfredo sauce came out green in color with little to no taste. With the exception of mousse and ice cream all the other desserts were unavailable!

This is a decent choice depending on what other options you have. Dinner was tasty and the servers were hustling. We were seated on time. We would not go out of our way to eat here again, but it’s close to the Wailea resorts if you want a walkable option.

I did lot find it as horrible as the other reviews. I had the cauliflower, spinach, artichokes, and calamari. My boyfriend thought everything was bland. I don’t use that much salt so I thought ok. But not as flavorful as other places I have been to in Maui. I wouldn’t waste your money, but it’s not horrible

Service was incredibly slow. Ordered drinks
Took 15 minutes
Ordered artichoke, salads and I had chicken piccata and he had fettuccini
Artichoke came in 45 min
Main coarse came 1.5 hours since arrival.
No salads
Salads were delivered after main coarse
Chicken piccata was a fried hockey puck drowning in lemon juiced sludge
Fettuccine was an abomination. Awful.
Worst food.
The only thing that saved our meal was we love and enjoy each others company.
Not that we really cared that the couple next to us came and hour after us and left just before us with the same amount of courses, it just made it all the more obvious.
Won’t be returning.

We read a number of recent, poor reviews on this place but decided to try it anyway. We were pleasantly surprised. Our server, Xena, was incredibly attentive and friendly. The food was good - not amazing, but good. I had the caneloni and my husband had the fish special. Caneloni could have had a bit more flavor but it was good. The fish was delicious but the portion was on the smaller side. It's Maui so everything is pricey, regardless of where you go. But all in all a pleasant experience and no reason at all to avoid this place.

I’m not sure about the menu items since this is Hawaii, but none of the dishes would survive on the east coast. You can’t order chicken parm with pasta, it has to come with gnocchi and so does the veal, eggplant and all the other dishes. The kids portions are very small for the price. And their version of a Bolognese sauce is terrible. The dish is called rigatoni bolognese and it comes with penne. Probably the worst Italian food I have had in a very, long, long time. Next time we will order from the pizza shop as I will bet it will come out better. They need to revamp that menu and try harder.
