It was a warm night in Hilo when we made it to Cafe Concerto, lots of people in a small area made it warmer. It's BYOB so after bottle of wine #1 I did not hear the baby who did not want to be there. We were a party of 4 all who live here....and wondered why we had not... More

We can walk there and get authentic Italian food made by an Italian.The raviolis are homemade and the fare is typically served with a simple salad {no you cannot have ranch on your salad} . The ambiance is cozy and pleasing. and there's a patio in back in case you want to bring your pup/

I am a local resident and drove by this place for years, always wanting to try it out. Tonight I took my mom & whole family there to celebrate Mother's Day. Such lovely simple little atmosphere. Then saw the menu and was happy about low prices. We were just the second table to be seated for dinner. Things went down... More

Really great pasta and sauces. Great service. Sometimes noisy if to big a party. Make reservations. The place is small and cosy with both outside and inside tables. Be sure to bring your own bottle of wine.

Very difficult to find with poor signage, but near the Hilo Burger Joint. The food is very good authentic Italian food. It is BYOB so remember to bring your beer or wine with you, otherwise they have soda and water. I like a little more bread with my meal, otherwise I have no complaints about the food or service.

As others have said, Cafe Concerto is small but it is cosy and the food is delicious. Doesn't serve alcohol so bring your own. The menu is limited but the portions are ample, the service is pleasant. Unfortunately, I was still full from a delicious meal at Hawaiian Style Cafe but brought the left overs home for later. There doesn't... More

The restaurant is small and cozy. There are limited options on the menu. Service is slow. Food is just okay and lacked any wow factor. Also, the restaurant is very skimpy on the bread!

Cafe Concerto was able to accommodate our extended family group of 19. We did not know what to expect and picked it based on reviews in yelp and trip advisor. The ambience was cozy, comfortable small café feel. Service was efficient and courteous. The food was delicious. Fresh ingredients – basil - pesto, ragu sauce, homemade raviolis – comparable to...

I have eaten here several times over the last couple years and always come away disappointed. It's not bad, it's just lacking, especially the food, any zing! The wait help are very nice, it's a good place to sit around and talk over dinner, it's nicely decorated, but the food could use some pizzazz. I recently had chicken there and... More
