Have wanted to try this restaurant for a while and went here pre-theatre at the University. Loved the quiet, low key atmosphere - you almost feel like you're in Italy - and the food was ALMOST perfect! We started with the Caprese Salad for four....More

Tucked away with limited parking but very good food. Light and fresh! Our favorite is the summer spaghetti caprese style, for dessert, the panna cotta followed by the "digestives".

Very small restaurant run by an Italian chef with penchant for sauces. 4 cheese ravioli was terrific. Portions were not huge, but were adequate. It is a limited menu, as one would expect from a restaurant run by two people. People seem to have an...More

We had wonderful dinner tonight. So far the food in Hilo has been so so. This was not the case at this wonderful family owned restaurant. We are going back for our last night tomorrow. Thank you to the staff for a lovely evening.
