We are currently in Maui with our best friends, who happen to eat decidedly non-Paleo. They are some of our favorite people in the world and the thing we love to do the most is eat out together. Now that Fitbomb and I have changed our diet, eating out with them is not as simple as it used to be. It’s hard to share everything like we did in the past and choosing a restaurant to eat at is more complicated because they LOVE Italian. I don’t WANT to eat pasta and pizza but I still crave them sometimes. Especially if someone is oooohing and aaaaaaahing across the table from me while enjoying a bitchin’ dish of papparadelle with pork sugo at Delfina. But I digress.
Besides Sansei, the only other restaurant our friends wanted to try in Maui was Matteo’s Pizzeria and Italian Restaurant in Wailea. Again, since I’ve been a total food dictator when it comes to choosing where to eat this week, I relented and we dined at this pizzeria today after our morning trip to the Maui Ocean Center.
WTF did Fitbomb and I eat?
Antipasto Platter with salumi, mixed greens, olives, and a mini Caprese salad:
Beef carpaccio with mixed greens, capers, and a lemon dressing:
House salad with added chicken:
House salad with added shrimp:
The food was fresh, delicious, and reasonably priced and you have a beautiful view of the ocean and golf course when you dine out on the patio. I was glad that the salads and apps were really well-composed and carefully prepared – and not some half-assed concessions for non-pizza eating folks. See? You can eat something filling and delicious and decidedly non-carby at pizza place!1
