“fresh pizza = melts in your mouth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

Menu is pizza's - salads: its a don't miss for really excellent pizza. The couple running it are "serious" about product quality. My friend and I ate there 2 times. Enjoy it on Aqua Bamboo Waikikil's poolside patio. they do prefer reservations because of being small while busy we got in just fine and our pizza(s) was well worth the wait!

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

Is it the best Pizza in the world? No. BUT the best in Waikiki without a doubt. Tucked away in the Aqua Bamboo Hotel, this little eatery served my fiancé and I a fresh and tasty pie. Owned and operated by a local couple their pizza is great. My advise go in the evening and done under your own personal tiki touch. Mahalo to the Lovin Oven!

“Seriously great pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

Wow..blown away..We were starving for a good pizza and found this hidden gem here on trip advisor ..This place has all the Hawaiian ambiance you could ask for plus phenomenal pizza..Tiki torches, waterfall, no traffic noise, no lines...Refreshing!! We met the owner and he was really personable. He's an older haole guy but you'd think he was Italian by the taste of his delicious pizza..He told us that it was just him cooking and his girlfriend doing the waitressing and they been trying to find good help because its getting busier..They were fairly busy tonight but the two pizzas we ordered came out in about twenty minutes, they were both equally great but being a meataterian that I am I learned toward the Hawaiian with pulled pork and caramelized sweet onions!! I couldn't stop myself..We are definitely going back..soon!

“Not worth the wait, or the $20 pizza”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Not impressed. This is a tiny hole in the wall with a super loud AC unit. Not an enjoyable atmosphere to say the least. There were some tables setup outside but they are next to the pool at the hotel so it's a little awkward. The place only takes cash which was not advertised anywhere. There was only one waitress so service was crazy slow. The pizza was only OK. And when we walked in she apologize for things being slow but said it would have been faster had we had a reservation. Huh? This is not a reservation type place. Not to mention we went off the great reviews we read and the first time we walked over, there was a handwritten sign on the door saying they were closed that day and to try back tomorrow. Skip it - there are much better hole in the walls that don't take forever to serve you in the same area.

“Amazing Pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

Discovered this little spot on our last day in Honolulu - wished we found sooner so we could have had pizza twice during the week! They open at 11am - we were first ones there (had an afternoon plane to catch) - it's in the back of a local boutique hotel, thru the lobby just next to the pool area. The owners were very nice and hospitable. The thin crust pizza was amazing, so much flavor (garlic and spices). You have to order whole pies (no slices) so we had leftovers and owner offered to box up to take on the plane, I was so afraid we wouldn't get the food thru airport customs - but YES, we did so had cold pizza on the plane and pizza for dinner at home the next night. Yum! Just writing about it I wish I was there for pizza tonight. Mahalo!
