Good Italian food. A little on the expensive side. In the center of Honokaa town. Surrounded by other dining restaurants/shops.

We have been stopping by every time we are on the Big Island. We drove past Waimea to get there. It was worth the effort. The cozy,warm ambiance, adds to the experience. The food is wonderful. We'll be back soon.

Great pizza and calzone! This is Honoka'a's only gourmet restaurant. Everything is hand made so don't get antsy waiting. Worth the wait.
