THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED NAMES Bocalino Bistro & Bar Restaurant Review

: Although limited in number of tables, Bocalino offers a quiet, romantic respite from the tropical mélange of eateries in South Maui. Light jazz and R&B waft from speakers throughout the candlelit dining room. And while frequented by the hotel and restaurant employees of the area, Bocalino attracts the more sophisticated and subdued of the set. The menu is simple but elegant. Whether you choose the Brie on toast, a fiery scampi diablo or the more complex mushroom feuitte, your taste buds will be singing. Our favorite is the cioppino---a seafood stew made to share, with Maine lobster, crab legs, opakapaka, shrimp, clams, scallops and mussels with celery and carrots in a white wine cream sauce. Bocalino also offers weekly specials, like steamed Alaskan king crab legs on Mondays, and the best late-night menu on the island. There’s live music every night, from blues, jazz and Hawaiian to Latin, reggae and rock.
