You’ll need reservations to get into the lively and always-crowded Sale Pepe, which is in the strip mall side of Lahaina and has the best Italian food on the island. Share the prosciutto and fior di latte pizza, and always get a couple of the housemade pastas, like the strozzapreti with beef cheek ragu or squid ink spaghetti with local shrimp and spicy ‘nduja. There’s a big, ruby-red pizza oven from Italy that makes for a good conversation starter—specifically around what it would take for you to install something similar in your own apartment.
