Taverna review image


Once you’ve eaten enough raw fish that you’re starting to wonder how you would look with gills, it’s time to take a break from seafood. That’s when you should head to Taverna. Our go-to at this Italian restaurant at the Kapalua Resort is the Taverna lasagna with a side of beef and bacon meatballs, though it’s pretty hard to go wrong on their menu. Just make sure you pair something with one of their specialty cocktails like the smoky Burning Man-Hattan or one of the three variations on the negroni. They also have two daily Happy Hours (2:30-5:30pm and 9pm-midnight) and a Wine Wednesdays special with half off all bottles.
