We've eaten at Penne Pasta Cafe twice on this trip. They do a great job with food allergies and make a great thin gluten free crunchy, crispy crust.

We visited Penne Pasta a few times for dinner during our recent time on Maui. It was a short walk from our condo. Order & pay at the counter; select a table inside or outside; the staff brings the food to the table. Pleasant experience, no problems, would go again.

Fresh and delicious. A small restaurant, but you can also sit outside. No reservations. Worth coming here. I had the salad and baked penne, sooo good! Going back in a few days!,

If you want something Italian but not expensive this is the place. If you're a diabetic try a large salad and get a side order of shrimp or Ahi (tuna).

My wife and I were in the area walking and hungry. We have heard of the cafe but never eaten here. We stopped by, looked at the menu and gave it a try. They have a good selection of dishes including pasta, pizza, salads and sandwiches. They also list specials. I had the the mushroom and goat cheese pizza special.... More

An Italian cafe where you order at the counter. Guy at the counter was friendly and service is quick. Pasta and pizza both were pretty good. Will definitely recommend.

This is an old standby for an easy decently priced pasta,dinner. Order at the counter and your food,will be delivered. The specials are good as are the standards. This isn't fine Italian dining as far as the setting but we've come here over the years as have friends. It's a reasonable dinner at a reasonable price served by great people... More

I had hoped for a great meal based on friends' recommendations and some reviews. Maybe we just didn't order well. That happens. But, based on our meals, I was disappointed. We shared a pizza (tomato sauce, basil, cheese) and it was so average. The sauce looked like jelly. My husband ordered it on flatbread to my dismay which tasted like... More
