If you need proof that Italian plays in paradise, you'll find it here. Chef Wesley Holder and his merry band of kitchen innovators are using 80% local Maui products to do what the Italians do best: craft simple, delicious food that lets the ingredients shine. Must-haves include the Ho'opono Farms Caprese salad, Molokai sweet potato gnocchi, and Chianti-braised short ribs. The wine list is excellent. As if great food and drink weren't enough, the service is stellar, and
the glassed-in exhibition kitchen provides an eyeful of culinary entertainment.
