Stopped after seeing this spot during a drive-by. Gluten free options with an eye on protecting against cross contamination (separate waffle irons for cones and separate scoops for gelato). Lots of selections, friendly staff and good portions.

Not quite like gelato from Italy, but still pretty good. Worth a visit and prices are fair. Lots of selection in flavours.

Walked in after eating dinner nearby and had to try. Delicious!! Plenty of flavors to choose from in gelato and ice cream and no bad choices. Also, they offer a punch card so get it because you will be back!

This was our only time grabbing Shave Ice during our trip, but we enjoyed it here. The servings are very large. We ordered a small and it was more than enough for 2. You can get ice cream on the bottom of the shave ice pile, which was tasty.

In our ten days on Maui, I think we were here every day. They had the best shaved ice around and neither the kids nor adults could get enough. Their gelato was also fantastic. Highly recommend this family friendly location.

Nice family establishment with awesome Icecream and gelato and Hawaiian shaved ice. There's a cool chalk board for visitors to draw on. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Right across from the beach so you can grab a cool treat after a hot day of being at the beach or pool. We'd definitely eat there again.

Maui Gelato is okay and convenient but ONO gelato has more flavors and is a better bet. The shaved ice at Maui Gelato is excellent. Note that the store is closed on Sundays and that shaved ice is unavailable within 45 minutes of closing time.

Thank Neil P
