Longtime Kapalua Chris Kaiwi (a former managing partner of Plantation House and Pineapple Grill) and his Italian-Swiss chef Roger Stettler pride themselves on “urban drinks and Italian eats,” and Taverna delivers on both. Order one of the housemade pastas—tagliatelle with stewed tomato and octopus or casarecce with blue swimmer crab and spinach—and a salad with local veggies , or go big with a hearty cioppino or slow-braised Chianti beef short rib with Hamakua mushrooms. The new lunch menu includes margherita or sausage pizza by the slice ($6), burgers with local beef and housemade buns, fresh fish tacos, chicken panini, and the signature house lasagna.
