Pasta, Short Ribs and Fish were all outstanding. Also enjoyed the desserts and drinks on the patio. One of the top spots to dine in Kapalua.

Very lovely views from this restaurant. Their “specialty” lasagne was excellent as was the pasta and seafood. Menus is somewhat limited. Wine selection is amazing. House white was excellent as was the Barbera. Service was friendly and very attentive.
I suppose this is an example of “you get what you pay for”, even if a bit on the pricey side. You can get a 10% off coupon with a purchase in the shop directly across from the restaurant...unfortunately, I forgot mine....

We called to make a reservation for 6:30 on a Sunday night. Were told the absolute latest we could have was 6:15 and they were being "helpful" extending it unless we wanted 9 p.m.. We arrived at 6:15 (cutting short something else) only to find there were about 15 other empty tables, most of which did not get seated until 6:45 or later. Really?

OK. so looking forward to the food based on TA reviews. Well, it was OK, nothing great. Started with beet salad, which was good but not special. I had the short ribs, which could have been a bit larger and warmer. Tasty but again nothing special, my wife had the fish of the day and was disappointed with it. I guess they do a good business given the location in Kapalua. Wine list is Kapalua prices, big markups...

Our waiter, Daniel was good, although a bit full of himself w/ the "telling us the menu" spiel. I can read...

We visited Taverna based upon it's proximity to the Ritz, our hotel for a week. I found it's menu to be fairly limited. What's an Italian restaurant without spaghetti? They did make it upon request, to their credit. Our server was attentive but twitchy to the point of irritation.
