No reservation as we had just arrived as a guest at the Westin Villa's after a long day of travel. We were ready for a early dinner and were accommodated at 5:30. Seated right on top of the koi pond which was a beautiful setting with tiki torches burning on the grounds, a beautiful breeze and island music playing in... More

Did not expect anything but a nice meal. It has been my favorite of the whole stay. 14 of us had a private room and excellent service. We did the three course dinner and there was ample food.

Nice menu offering pasta, beef and fish in a casual elegant atmosphere. Aranici made with eggplant was an exceptional appetizer. Fish of the day encrusted in risotto delicious Ask for a table next to the Koi pond for a peaceful dinner

We dined at the Westin Villas Italian restaurant on property during our stay and were very pleased with our experience. The service was superb, the cocktails were tidy and our entrees were delicious. Our favorite was the tiramisu which was brought to us with compliments as we were celebrating our anniversary. A nice touch. Try to get a table adjacent... More

My wife, my best friend and his wife, and I ate here our first night on Maui. The food was awesome and we successfully tackled the 40 ounce Tomahawk steak! Our wait staff was very good and all of the other food was just as good, especially the Brussel sprouts which are to die for! We highly recommend this restaurant... More

I have been dinning here since they have opened. The food and the service has been consistent. I like that they replaced the bread sticks with a nice warm loaf of bread. We started with the Calamari. It was very good. I had the Risotto crusted Monchong, which was the fresh fish of the day. Lasagna, Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo and... More
