Fiancos restaurant
A Fianco’s house-made focaccia is filled with scamorza cheese, grilled broccolini and tomato.

A Fianco

Joy! Oh joy! Lahaina’s newest lunch addition is Sale Pepe’s sister restaurant — located, as its name says in Italian, “next to” that award-winning venue. A Fianco is osteria food at its best. The menu changes weekly, but if you’re lucky, they’ll be offering locally grown, wild arugula (sylvetta) salad with a light olive oil and lemon dressing, topped with shaved parmesan; house-made al dente strozzapreti tossed with jade-green Maui kale pesto; or panini like the kind you find on the streets of Florence — with tender grilled broccolini, tomato and scamorza (smoked mozzarella) on the thinnest panini bread, baked in the restaurant’s pizza oven. And, yes, Chef Michele offers two of his famous pizzas, as well. It’s a simple and short menu, but we bet even Mario Batali would approve. Mangiare insieme! Located in the Lahaina Town Center, opposite Foodland.
