Restaurateur Aaron Placourakis invites all Maui residents and visitors to experience family-style dining at his new restaurant, Manoli's Pizza Company, which opened on July 23.
The location, former home to Matteo's Pizzeria and the first building ever developed in Wailea, provides 3,000 square feet of dining space and a stunning view. The family-focused concept and organic menu offers a new affordable dining option in South Maui. Prices range from $6 to $26. Keiki meals include all-you-can-eat cheese pizza, beverage, and dessert starting at $.99 plus the child's age.
Focusing on fresh and organic cuisine, the menu at Manoli's will consist of pizzas and salads made with sustainable products, from organic pizza dough to locally grown lettuce leaves and even organic wines. Maui grown ingredients grace the menu such as Kula Farm Greens, Surfing Goat Dairy cheese, Olowalu carrots, Hana avocados and much more. Sauces and dough are homemade from scratch.
The new Manoli’s Pizzeria strives to bring local, healthy, delicious, family-style food for affordable prices to South Maui.
Eleven different pizzas with varying ingredients are served on handcrafted organic wheat crust or whole grain gluten-free crust. From Traditional Cheese or Build-Your-Own to stand-out specials such as The Hawaiian Honey, which is topped with house-made honey smoked ham, Maui Gold caramelized pineapple, organic homemade pomodoro sauce, mozzarella and toasted macadamia nuts, Manoli's has a pizza style for everyone.
"Manoli's is where healthful, flavorful foods and beverages come together in a place where friends and family meet," said Placourakis in a press release.
Manoli's Pizza Company was created with family in mind. Named after Aaron's father, Manoli Placourakis, and Aaron's son, Manoli, born on Maui in 2004, family is at the heart of the restaurant's concept, where all salads and pizzas will be served family-style. Families can gather at Manoli's for special occasions or to simply enjoy the view of the 15th hole of the Wailea Old Blue golf course.
"As big Manoli used to say, 'Treat your friends like family, and your family like friends,' said Aaron. "That's what we strive for here at Manoli's."
Manoli's Pizza Company is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Manoli's offers a full bar with beer, wine and cocktails. Happy hour is daily from 3 to 6 p.m. and again starting at 9 p.m. Take-out service available.
