A place where you can feel comfortable even when dining alone. The food is always very good and consistent with a nice selection of pizzas, calzones, salads and other selections and specials.

If you feel hungry on the road, you could stop at this Italian cooking restaurant. Lot of different pizzas, pastas, and appetizers. Classical but good quality. The welcome is really pleasant and the restaurant well decorated. Sometimes music in live.

We had dinner here a couple of times during our stay, and look forward to returning. Good cocktails, tasty entrees (not just pizza), and just an overall comfortable and pleasant place to have a meal. It's no Merriman's, but then Honoka'a isn't L.A., either. That's...More
