Overall, we were disappointed in our experience. While the location is a beautiful one, the food quality was less than satisfying and we felt the prices didn’t match the true quality provided. We wouldn’t return.

This was my second time going to Taverna. The service there is top notch and the food is excellent. Try the Pollpette meatballs and order the Lasagna as an entree.

The bar makes fabulous drinks as well and they accommodate special drink requests as well.

Of the cocktails, the Whipping Post was very good, but the mai tai was excellent. The first and main courses were, on the whole, average. The flourless chocolate cake was delicious. Service was attentive and competent.

Server explained the menu in detail and was extremely knowledgeable in what he served. The food was refined using fresh simple ingredients in a way fine chefs are capable of doing. Deco and ambience was appealing. No evidence of excess oils etc. Service was top notch. A bit hard to find using GPS but worth circling around to find.

The variant on a traditional tiramisu was spot on.

Dinner at the Taverna was delish. We ordered the lasagna and the spaghetti carbonara. Both were equally good. Our server was great. Cute place, Nice ambiance. Would definitely eat here again.

We have making an annual trip to Maui for over thirty years. Consistency in service and food quality can be a challenge on the island given the turnover in staff, but when we find somewhere good...we keep coming back. Taverna was an experience that far exceeded anything we have ever had on Maui. The food was simply awesome. Service...exceptional. View...spectacular. It wasn’t a one off either...we ended up making four visits, including lunch and dinner. The quality never wavered, the service was also on point....and quite frankly..we had some of our best meals ever. Pricing is perfect. You won’t walk out of there feeling like you were just hit with tourist prices. Can’t say enough good things about Taverna. Can’t wait to go back!

Overall it is fine. Nothing special. Prices are fairly high for the value. Service, however, was excellent. If you’re staying in Kapalua it is very convenient.

Another fantastic meal. I keep coming back for the homemade pasta and hubby for the amazing thin crust pizza (5:30 or after). The beet salad is another favorite. Ambiance, food, and service are triple wins. LOVE IT! ❤️

Driving to Kapalua is always enjoyable as generally out of the congestion and always cooler. This is a regular dining spot on our frequent trips to Maui. The service and ambiance are always excellent. The food preparation can vary. My fish preparation was excellent; the starters were all good. The pizza was mediocre.

Great food, service, and atmosphere. I loved my beet salad as well as the homemade pasta with lobster in tomato cream sauce. Husband thought his fried seafood salad and thin crust (5:30 or after) pizza was very good. We’ll be repeat customers, for sure.

We went to Taverna the last night of our honeymoon trip to Maui. It did not disappoint! We had an excellent meal, good craft cocktails and a mouthwatering dessert. We recommend it to anyone staying near Kapalua!

We each had a glass of wine then shared 4 different dishes. The Caprese salad was very good but a super small portion - only 3 slices of tomato with mozzarella. The pizza carnivore (ordered without pepperoni) was pretty good but we only saw/tasted the Italian sausage - not sure there was any prosciutto at all. The chicken pizza was not good at all - like cardboard, dry and tasteless. And finally the eggplant parm was probably the best of the dishes. However, we have no desire to return - and it’s a shame because we love Italian food!

Hostess was initially rude when we arrived. Not impressed.

Food was good but not the best I’ve ever had for Italian. The pizza we had was odd and had ingredients separated into quadrants and that wasn’t clearly spelled out on the menu.

The carbonara was good and the short rib was decent. Value wise the short rib was not worth the $$.

This was our second time dining at Taverna this week, and unfortunately it was a 180 from our previous great visit.

Our server Steven was condescending, hurried, and yet inattentive to us. Blatantly ignored us at times, and just made for an uncomfortable meal. Truly felt like we were a waste of his time. We are very easy going foodies in a major city, and not one to complain, but his attitude earned this. I’d be glad to share more details.

Earlier in the week we had Leigh as our server and it was a great and memorable experience... she went above and beyond, and was a major reason we came back. Hard to believe that both Steven and Leigh work at the same restaurant.

It was the last night of a great 10 day stay in Maui and genuinely our only poor dining experience.
