A Lahaina landmark created by Bob Longhi—"a man who loves to eat"—Longhi's has been serving pasta and other Italian fare to throngs of visitors since 1976. Although Bob's children run the restaurants now, his influence is still strong. Many of the classic dishes on the menu are his—prawns Amaretto, steak Longhi, and the signature lobster Longhi for two. The wine list is award winning and gigantic. There are two spacious, open-air dining levels. Breakfast pastries
are made in-house. Before the rest of Lahaina (or Wailea) wakes up, have yourself a cup of freshly squeezed orange juice and some good, strong coffee to start the day. There's a second Maui restaurant at The Shops at Wailea.

Went here because we had heard of it before and the place we wanted to go was full. Maybe our first clue was that it was half empty on a Saturday Night. Service was acceptable, but I thought it a bit strange the waitress asked us as soon as we sat down whether we wanted to order thier dessert special as it takes a long time to prepare. The food was terrible. My salad was acceptable (hard to screw up a salad), but my entree, thier signature "Scallops
Loghi, was about as imaginative as Kraft Dinner (but not as tasty). A plate of overdone scallops in butter, bascially. My wifes Tuna was dry, bland, and tasteless and coated with a deep fried breadcrumb layer that was aweful. We didnt stay for dessert. Overall the biggest dissapointment in Maui. I dont know why it is even listed in Fodors.There are many fine resataurants in Lahaina, spend your money there, as Longhis is not one of them.
