Description: Ferraro’s Bar e Ristorante at Four Seasons Resort Maui epitomizes every element of the perfect place to dine in Hawaii. Its spectacular beachfront setting is enhanced by Ferraro's open-air design, which takes full advantage of Wailea's warm, dry, sunny weather. The diverse menu showcases the fresh seafood and produce of Hawaii and an extensive collection of Italian wines, while the casual atmosphere, lively bar and great entertainment ensure that a meal at Ferraro's will be remembered forever. Ferraro's offers the perfect setting for a Maui meal, regardless of time of day. Lunch is served overlooking Wailea Beach and features casual fare. Come evening, Ferraro's is guaranteed to dazzle as guests dine under a canopy of stars, served by arguably the most attentive staff on Maui. Authentic Italian cucina rustica cuisine, featuring tantalizing seafood, fish and pasta, is brought to the table at Wailea's only beach-side restaurant.

“Still one of our faves after all these years”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

Ferraro's oceanfront location and ambiance are tough to beat. Great menu and service. We went to Ferraro's on 5/31/14 with another couple and we went back, as we often do, on our last night in Maui on 6/6. Both meals were excellent; fish, meat & pasta alike. The food and ambiance are a 6 on a scale of 5. The wine list is a 3 ... a very sparse selection of anything other than Italian wines ... and the Italian wine selection is expensive for what's offered. No BYO/corkage available here or anywhere else among the higher end restaurants in Wailea. We took advantage of a lightly advertised special offer on our 2nd visit ... get seated at or after 8pm and wine is discounted by 50%.

So the rating gets knocked down to a 4 (woulda done 4.5 if available) ... but we'll go back at least once and probably twice on our next visit to Maui.

The food was delicious, the views along the beach at sunset were phenomenal and we enjoyed eating here for 2 of our 6 days.

“Disappointed ”
Reviewed 13 June 2014 via mobile

We may have just been spoiled because we were staying at the Andaz where the food is the best experience of any trip we have ever encountered. We decided to have an evening meal here based on reviews, however were left feeling very disappointed. The atmosphere was pretty however it felt quite isolated and very dark( we were outside). Our wait for our prebooked table was far to long and the server for the evening messed our order more than once. Surprisingly we all felt the food tasted quite old fashioned, almost in a nanas stew sort of way. Nothing tasted fresh or looked inspiring on the plate. We expected a lot more from our dining experience and were really shocked by this experience.

Great food, great service, beautiful sunset views. Happy hour has some awesome food and drink specials! Reserve early to be sure to get a seat on the patio--that's where those great views are!

“Out of this world food and location!”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

We couldn't have better things to say about this restaurant. We dined here twice while on our honeymoon and attended one other time previously in December. The location for sunset is absolutely stunning. We came early both nights to get one of the tables on the edge closest to the water and it was worth heading up from the pool a few minutes early for! It is such an amazing experience and just breath taking. The food at this restaurant is so delicious. We tried everything from the meat and cheese tasting, the salads, the risotto, the pastas, the chicken, and some lovely desserts. Everything we ate was just spectacular. Our wait staff both times was extremely knowledgeable and helpful and lovely. We never were rushed and were able to make it long and memorable 4-5 course meals. They also have a really good classic mai tai! One of our favorites on the island. They also have live violinists that really help add to the overall experience. Thank you for two amazingly special meals! We would never return to Maui again without stopping here at least once!
