Mi's was recommend by a friend / resident of the Big Island. The restaurant is about a 25 minute drive south of the center of Kialua-Kona. It is sandwiched among small shops (dive shop, market), in a what appears to be an industrial area of Kealakekua. However, don't avoid stopping because of the surroundings. It is a small restaurant with... More

Four of us had dinner here. We arrived at 6 pm. The restaurant is not air-conditioned and was very warm. As the night progressed, the temperatures cooled considerably. The decor is oriental. You can bring your own liquor and if you buy it from their sister wine shop, they will not charge you a corking fee. The chef and his... More

We often eat at Mi's Italian Bistro. The food is fabulous, using as many fresh, local ingredients as possible. In addition, Chef Morgan Starr is creative in coming up with alternatives for vegetarians. Many of the regular items can be made without the additional meat - just ask! On our last visit, I decided I wanted the risotto. The chef... More

My sister and I drove all the way from the Mauna Lani on the recommendation from our guide book. Once you get past the funky storefront appearance you're rewarded by a pleasant atmosphere and wonderfully prepared food with local ingredients. The portions were generous. Thank you Ingrid & Morgan. Your restaurant was worth the drive and we hope to return... More

Mi's was outstanding Italian Restaurant. I am from San Francisco and felt that the dinner at Mi's was equal any Italian Restaurant here. Service was excellent. I highly recommend.

Lovely restaurant owned and run by a couple. He is a CIA trained chef. The food is outstanding. They have fresh gluten free options. I had gluten free bolognese that was outstanding. Tasted like homemade regular pasta. Two people had wonderful grass fed filets. The shrimp scampi appetizer was fresh and one of the best shrimp dishes ever.I didn't give... More

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
