Our readers were pretty clear on this: Lorenzo and Michelle Fabiani have created Maui’s best new restaurant, but they made it look easy with their simple Italian menu and impressive bakery. Breakfast, lunch and dinner, paninis, burgers, linguine and pizzas are all served in this casual and homey space that includes a full bar. Eventually you’ll find yourself stopping by to check the cupcakes of the day or to have a glass of prosecco. 95 E. Lipoa St., Kihei; 808-874-0888; fabianis.com
