“Italian Pacific Rim?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

The only thing fusion about this restaurant is the fact that it is on the Big Island. Otherwise, it is delicious and authentic Italian all the way. Fine dining, generous portions, excellent service. A great place to see locals, don't miss it. I wish it were in my mainland (foodie) city!

“Very good Italian Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

Had a great lunch here on our way from the Kona airport to our B&B in Captain Cook. Though the we were told the place had just been open a couple weeks, it has a settled, old-world ambiance. The food is very authentic, fresh and well prepared Roman style cuisine. The house Chianti was excellent. Not good if you are in a hurry. It was not a long wait for a real restaurant but this is real cooking and takes a bit of time. Service was cheerful but just a bit scattered. Not surprising given the length of time in business and I will bet that improves quickly. It is in the small town of Kainaliu, right next to the quaint Aloha Theater. Great place!
