Pizza Paradiso is celebrating 20 years in business on Maui, and giving back to customers in the process.

Located in Honokōwai just north of Kā‘anapali, the casual, locally-owned restaurant serves up an award-winning menu of Italian, Greek, and Middle Eastern favorites.

“In celebration of Pizza Paradiso’s 20 year anniversary, I want to give back to Maui,” shares executive chef and owner Paris Nabavi.

Between November 1 and 20, patrons will receive a 10% discount off their orders, with a minimum purchase of $15. Chef Nabavi will match 10% of the sales and donate it to Habitat for Humanity Maui’s Hurricane Lane recovery efforts and the fire victims who lost their homes in Lāhainā.  The offer cannot be combined with other discounts or online orders.

Pizza Paradiso’s menu and pizza have been recognized often over the years.  The restaurant has received several ‘Aipono awards, including Silver for “Best Pizza” in 2017 and Gold for “Best Mediterranean” in 2017 and 2018, among other honors.


“We’re grateful to have been named “Best Pizza” on Maui three times by readers of The Maui News,” chef Nabavi adds.
