Found this little gem by looking on google maps. I'm not sure we would've known about it otherwise. Very small place in a tucked away warehouse area. We had the garlic knots, which we fabulous!!! We also had the 3 stooges pizza and it was superb! They throw the crust and cook it in a wood fire oven. Staff was... More

We had a huge group of 17, when we ordered for takeaway the counter staff were a little taken back, that said the pizza arrived back at the house still hot and everybody enjoyed. Definitely reccommended.

Spent a week on the island. Our first visit was great. So much so we wanted to come back before our flight out. Arrived at 3:28. Were told sorry...your sol...we close at 4 and have already shut off the oven. Workers couldn't care less. Not like we walked in 2 minutes before closing. Why post a closing time if you... More

We ate here earlier in the week and it was wonderful. Excellent service and great food. We planned our day today to stop here on our way out of town. We were very rudely told that even though they are open for another 30 plus minutes that we were out of luck. The owner wasn't around. What a shame as... More

This was my 4th time here and the service and food is consistent. Fast service, especially if you are limited on time, and pizza dough is awesome. Guys in the kitchen welcomes you and waves good-bye, so that says alot for a customer to be recognized and feel appreciated.

Big Island Pizza is located just uphill from Costco in an industrial area. The pizza was very good with friendly service. Would definitely recommend.

very authentic taste. Enjoyed every bit of it. was glad they were open until 8pm when everything else wasnt. Even though pizzas were great. 12$ for a tiny 8" was a bit too much.

I've been hearing a lot of good things about this eatery. Many friends told me the fresh baked bread alone was worth the trip. I stopped yesterday for lunch to see to sample a few items. I ordered a Greek salad and Red Pepper Flatbread with Goat Cheese. For the main course I ordered the Big Island Pizza with no... More

So we stumbled upon this place as we were driving and looking for food. It came up on our phone app and decided to give it a shot. Its kind of hidden in an industrial area. Pllace was small but clean. We ordered a pizza and the garlic knots. Both were very good. Service was excellent and we didnt have... More
