Stopped in for lunch since it was a Monday & it was the only restaurant open in this small town. Enjoyed the pizza & the friendly owners, one of whom is an accomplished flamenco guitarist. Would definitely recommend this place for lunch. Near waipio valley lookout.

We got two take-out meals here prior to our trip into the Waipio valley. We had pesto pizza with mushrooms and lasagna. The pizza had a thin crust and just the right amount of toppings. The lasagna, that we had the next day came with a salad and garlic bread. It was a generous portion, the two of us split... More

We tried to find something wrong with this place ;-) There were 4 of us for late lunch and we had pizza, sandwiches, salads. Everything was fresh, tasty and hot. The decor and design elements of the restaurant were nostalgic, homey, comfortable, relaxing and creative. Their special ice tea (I think it was tea with tincture of passionfruit) was fantastic....

They have been in business in Honokaa for many many years abd always have consistent quality food. Love their calzones and the pizza with pesto. It's inconvenient that they don't take credit card.

This little Italian pizzeria is a gem tucked away in Honokaa. We were looking for a place to eat in Honokaa on a cool rainy day and found this place tucked away in a little restaurant on the main street. We had two Canta Napoli pizzas and two Meatball Calzones and they were delicious. They also serve sandwiches and salads... More

This was a nice little pizzeria, which was welcoming open later in the day than some places in Honokaa. The food was tasty, if a little filling for a hot afternoon, though the ice cream looked great. I would heartily recommend it, were it not for the very worn down and in some cases stained furniture. It is in desperate... More

This place rocks! Delicious hearty fare, perfect for lunch or dinner after hiking down (then up, up, uuuup) to/from Waipi'o Valley. Plus, great personalized friendly cheerful service.

The weather was rainy so we stopped in town for lunch. This place was rated well so we tried it out. My dad and I each got a sandwich and we split a chef salad. It was the best food we had all trip.
