Service was slow and it wasn't even busy!! Food was extremely bland and nowhere worth the price you pay!! If you're looking for good Italian food you better keep looking, cause this is not the place to be!!

For several years we had to toil to get to their restaurant from north of airport but it was always worthwhile. What a great surprise this trip to note that they've moved to town and in a beautiful setting with great views especially if you...More

Never ate at the Mauka restaurant before Mi's came in to kona town. We were invited to a birthday dinner that night at the Kona location. We were a nine top and the ambience was on point. Throughout the night our whole table had witnessed...More

This is our 'go to' place when we want a special dinner with excellent taste. The food is awesome all the time (and we have been here many, many times). It is worth the drive from Kailua for the taste experience! No ocean view but...More

We wanted a break from island food and took a chance on an Italian place. All too often specialty cuisines are a disaster in vacation settings. This is a full-on, chef with a toque at the stove, all local ingredients, filled to the door with...More

The food on the Big Island, except the excellent breakfast at the Kane Plantation guesthouse we stayed at, was generally awful. Mi's stood out as the best meal we had during our 8 day sojourn. Good fish, well cooked and spiced, nice ambience, great service.

Hit this one on our way back from Volcano's NP. We did make a reservation, which is probably helpful as it is a smaller restaurant. The fresh made bread was divine and all of our entrees were prepared quickly and were great. Service was also...More
