Ask just about anyone their thoughts about the island of Maui, and you’re sure to hear a few common answers: the pristine beaches, the outstanding scenery, the spectacular shopping. However, we think it’s a real crime that you don’t hear more about Maui’s thriving and diverse food scene, as the island is home to some of the very best restaurants anywhere in the wide old world.
Speaking of, say hello to Dave Giannotto of the famed Giannotto’s Pizza, the home of fresh-made Italian food on Maui! Dave is one of the hardest-working entrepreneurs and restaurateurs in the business – and we’re so thankful to enjoy the fruits of his labor, because what is life without good pizza, even here in paradise?
Truly, their pizza pies are beyond description – but Dave is serving up everything from sublime sandwiches and subs to cheesy calzones and delectable desserts, all made with the freshest ingredients and available for both dine in and take out. Trust us when we say: the Philly Cheesesteak is to die for, and Gary always makes sure to order his Fettuccine Alfredo with extra chicken to really live a little!
Do yourself a tremendous favor: drop everything you’re doing and check these folks out now for the very best in Italian delights on the island. They’re open 6 days a week, Monday through Saturday from 11 to 8 – and hey, even a hard-working dude like Dave needs one day of rest each week! After all, absence only makes the heart grow fonder…especially for Gary, as you can probably find him impatiently counting the minutes on Sundays until Giannotto’s opens their doors again on Monday morning.
Until next time, aloha and a hui hou 🤙
