First Review by VeggieVee

Very accommodating - Edit

The ?owner was really helpful, he went through the whole menu and explained the pizzas and pastas that could be made vegan (they have vegan cheese). My pizza was great, thin crispy crust and he let me add some extra veggies. My boyfriend had the pasta puttanesca veganized with anchovies removed. They can do their baked pastas with vegan cheese as well.

Pros: Owner knowledgeable and helpful, Quick service, could sit outside , Free street parking right in front of restaurant

Cons: Not a huge variety of pizza toppings, Location not that scenic

Accomodating! - Edit

The staff was so friendly and helpful in crafting our vegan lunch. After beach or shopping in Lahaina it is a must stop. Super thin crust delicioso pizza and and baked penne, both with Daiya cheese. So good and loved the quaint outside dining area. Would visit again for sure.

Penne Pasta - Edit

This place reminded me of Noodles and Company...but the food here tastes so much better. The chef was nice enough to come out and talk to me and walked me through each item that could be made vegan, and they even have Daiya cheese. He recommended the Penne Puttanesca (you must specify vegan) and he veganized it for me (so less the cheese and anchovies). I must say, I was impressed. The food was really good and flavored well. I may even go back to Penne Pasta for dinner again tonight. I recommend this place if you're craving pasta.

Fabulous hidden Gem! - Edit

Love this place! Reasonably priced, friendly, timely service.
Favorites; salads with fresh edamame beans, focaccia bread, baked squash, baked beets, baked penne.
Everything is so fresh! Excellent for vegetarians, would have to ask for vegan modification for some dishes.
When on vacation we eat here about 4 Xs /week!
Can't wait to go back, and try what's new.

Pros: Good portion size, Excellent food, Good value

Cons: Could have a bit more outdoor seating
