We were looking for a nice semi-formal meal for our family. The food was outstanding and probably the best meal we had on the island. Great place for celebrating the last night on the island.

We ate at Mi's on our first night in Hawaii. Since our Inn did not serve dinner, we had to find a local restaurant. My husband had the steak and I had the fish special. Both were wonderful. The restaurant is small, but we ate there on a Wednesday night and were immediately seated. The hostess was very polite, friendly,... More

While staying in the area we had Mi's recommended to us and we were very happy we took the recommendation. It is a small family run restaurant where they make their own bread and pasta. My wife had the grilled fish over mushroom risotto special and I had the pasta. Both were very good. We had a decent bottle of... More

If you are within half an hour of this place, it is worth getting in the car. I had the lasagna and thought I could only eat half, but between me and my husband, we finished it off. The flavors were fresh, mild, and perfectly blended. My husband had the ravioli and could not stop raving about all the cheese... More

Mi's is a very good selection for great food in an out of the way place. I've eaten there several times and have never been dissapointed with the food or service. The wine list is very good for such a small place. The only downside is the walkway to Mi's is not very handicap friendly, the ramp is a bit... More

The restaurant is small and cozy. The owners are man and wife and very dear. When you walk in the aromas will knock you off your feet! The food is prepared with loving care and is beautifully presented. Sheer delight to dine there.

We stopped by this restaurant on the recommendation of a local family. We were slightly disappointed when they weren't open for lunch but we came back for dinner and had a great meal. It is a family run, low-key, quality food place. My husband asked why they are only open for a short period of time and the waitress said,... More

We have dined with pleasure at Mi's many times over the years when visiting the Big Island. This time we took friends, but we were disappointed. The owner-chef was not there...someone else was cooking. (It was uncharacteristically uncrowded, so maybe locals knew something.) The ravioli stuffing tasted very good, but the pasta was doughy. Three in our group tried the... More

Well worth spending an extra few dollars on a fine Italian meal. Do make reservations because it fills up fast for Dinner.
