The shrimp scampi was not up to par - the shrimp needed more sautéing in lemon and garlic. Everything else was delightful.
Don’t judge a book by its cover , we were first unsure about going into the restaurant as the ambience was not great and a bit too bright ...we are so glad we gave it a chance...the food was amazing and the staff is very nice. Pleas give it a try you will not be disappointed!
Food was exceptional as expected, but service was not up to par. I presume our waitress was a beginner and not experienced in serving at all. Entrée was brought to the table incomplete and side dishes were also served incomplete and to incorrect parties. Having no diet Coke available nor coffee is inexcusable. Request had to be made for dessert menu which seem to have caught our waitress off guard. She asked if we wanted our checks before even asking about dessert. Having such an inexperienced waitress put dampers onOur usual good time at Maui pasta.
Their name caught our attention and we were surprised how much we enjoyed our dinner. Extensive menu and will go back.
Great local restaurant. Good value and wonderful pasta.
Wonderful place with great food and service. We always had a great time and meal here.
Always a fav place of ours to go. Maui Pasta helped make our very first Valentine's Day dinner together very special. Thank you all for the great meal. We will return!
We love Maui Pasta. The food is consistently outstanding. The staff and service are helpful and on top of it. We are regulars and always take our iut of town guests here-to raves.
The Best! We've tried many Italian restaurants in the 10 years that we've lived in Scottsdale, and this is by far The Best! Everything was so fresh tasting, and the service was very friendly and knowledgeable. The Breaded Ravioli appetizer was fantastic, as were our entrees. The restaurant is very small, so either get there early or make a reservation.
We adore Maui Pasta. The closest thing to eating in Italy. Whenever we have out of town company ( who eat carbs) we take them here.
The food was delicious, the portions are large. We had a Caesar salad, the Brussel sprouts and shared the lasagna. Everything was tasty and perfect. Be sure to have a reservation. It’s a small place and fills up quickly. Enjoy.
Marinara sauce is too sweet and otherwise tasteless. Eggplant slice was thick and mushy. Won’t go back
Food and service was exceptional
It was my first time there. I had a large portion of Capellini with marinara and chicken, with a Caesar salad to go with. It was all delicious. I will be back. I think you can't go wrong with this restaurant. Be sure to make a reservation- it's small.
Very impressed with this restaurant! Maui Pasta had a great menu selection that was full of amazing selections without too much irrelevant dishes to overwhelm your decision. Cocktail selections were ideal, small plates were a great filler before our meal. The service was warm, friendly and enthusiastic. Ambiance was clean, calm, bright, but not overbearing; music level was just right so you could hear the Hawaiian music in the background but wasn’t drowning our table conversation. We are certainly returning to Maui Pasta and are bringing our families next time!
Good food. Friendly service. Will definitely return.
Food is excellent. Cesar salad was served cold and crispy. Pasta was done aldente
This is the best pasta, bread, and dessert outside of Italy. The food food is excellent, the waitstaff knowledgable, pleasant, and efficient, and the artwork fabulous. Just love it.
Good food! Good prices!
The best chicken Parm in Arizona! Home made fresh pasta!
Maui Pasta has been building their reputation for a year. They start the day at 8 for all kinds of specialty coffee drinks and pastries. They stopped serving breakfast and this format fits the locals. It is not a big restaurant, but you feel the love that goes into their daily cooking. Pastas are made in that kitchen. Care is given to a variety of appetites from small dishes, salads, paninis, delicious and ample entrees at a surprising value. The flavors are a sensory delight. Read the back of the menu to find out chef/owner Patricia’s tie to Maui before coming to Scottsdale. All dishes are authentic Italian traditional dishes.
I selected Chicken Piccata with a Caesar salad with one of the freshest dressings and crisp Romaine lettuce. My friend had an ample dish of Chicken Alfredo. Tasty Italian garlic rolls with a variety of other bread offerings plus a generous glass of wine rounded out our meal. What a great neighborhood gem. It will definitely become a favorite intimate place to enjoy tasty food cooked with love!
Maui Pasta does not disappoint. The food is excellent, service is super, and we love the selection. We will return! We are on a mission to try various dishes each time we return. It is so difficult to choose, so many yummy choices! Prices are great too!
I wish it was better. While everything is home made I would have expected the flavors to be much better. While they were fresh they were mostly lackluster. The decor also needs a refresh, the chairs and tables are mostly wobbly (3 at our table) and the decor feel like a minimally refreshed former Ice cream shop. I wish it was better and could be our go to, local, freshly made Italian restaurant but it just doesn’t make the grade.
We have been here several times and love the food. All pasta is made fresh on site. We have taken friends and they loved it as well. We will be back.
Love homemade pasta! Add your sauce! Or list of entrees. Often, reservation or not, you need to wait. Not this time though. Great value!
I was very sorry that I thought the store was on Maui. As a result, it was canceled without permission. I'm really sorry.
Maui Pasta is the real deal. Dinner with friends for my birthday. Each had a different dish including appetizers. Each was remarkably fresh and tasty. Chef's special was a simple pasta presentation with shrimp. Having eaten spaghetti all my life, I still never knew it could taste that good.
Service was attentive, friendly and unobtrusive. We can't wait to return.
We love Maui Pasta. We have always had excellent food and service. The added attraction is the great artwork painted by the chef.
Very good , very fresh, kinda odd vibe....plastic tablecloths with cloth napkins, bright yellow walls.....good ambiance for coffee or lunch but weird for dinner. Prices good except for the chicken Florentine we ordered , it was very good but pricy. Will still go back but probably for lunch.
Great food - all made from scratch on-site. Highly recommend. Might suggest they update decor. It is a little blah with light yellow walls. Could be made sleeker, more in keeping with their name.
Great find! Small but comfortable restaurant with excellent, fresh Italian food. Good, reasonable wine list. Everything made with care.
From the setting to the service - very nice. Food - outstanding! Fresh pasta, great caprese salad and reasonable, good Italian wine list. Must try!
a quaint little homey place that is bright and cheerful. My party of 4 enjoyed all of the dishes we selected and all said that we would return. There is quite a selection of items which include homemade pastas, sauces and entrée items. The portions were just adequate and I would have liked if they were a bit bigger. Everything was cooked to perfection -- pasta al dente and everything flavorful. We shall definitely return.
The service is always personal. Every waiter has been so attentive.
Food choices excellent.
Exceptional customer service and the food is amazing! My wife and I will be going back to Maui Pasta.
This is a great find, pasta is wonderful, great variety, small intimate, very friendly. They play Hawaiian music and we were ready to get on a plane for Kauaii. Will definitely go back.
We tried Maui Pasta for the first time with a pair of friends. The first thing we noticed was the friendly service. Then I was pleased to find that Maui Pasta checked my check boxes for an Italian restaurant, namely that they offered veal, carbonara, and cannelloni. I had the short rib cannelloni, which sounds sacrilegious, but tasted wonderful. Lauren did the "build your own" pasta. We are looking forward to going back, and this may become our favorite Italian restaurant.
We have been here twice and love the fresh made pasta, sauces, and desserts.
Great place for dinner with a great back story.
Love this little place! Pasta homemade amazing with so many great choices! My favorite is the macadamia nut pesto over farfalle with broccoli and mushrooms. Yummy! Great reasonably priced wines too. We enjoyed dining out on the little patio Check this little gem out . You will love it!
