My wife got the cauliflower with a sauce that was very good. I got a house salad and added a chicken side. The chicken was very dry (became much better after being dipped in the cauliflower sauce). I tried to get the ravioli, but they...said that they were out. Since they open at 5 PM and we were there at 5:30, that seems strange.More

Cauliflower appetizer was great. Local fish and ingredients. Wood oven for great thin crust pizza. Friendly service. We liked it so much we went back a second night.

Caught lunch here at the tail end of their service. Some interesting menu options but everything was delicious. Roasted Brussels Sprouts... perfect! No hesitation in saying it is worth a visit

The pizza is excellent and the salad was quite a lot for the price. We split one pizza and a salad and were quite full. The place has a nice vibe, good service and menu with a number of selections. We just happen to love...their pizza.More

So glad we found this place - food was fantastic! Pizzas were top notch, appetizers as well, our waiter (young guy) was very attentive and friendly. No wonder it gets crowded so quickly. The only thing that we laughed about was Ceasar salad because it...really looked like they couldn't bother to even cut everything in pieces :D but flavor-wise was still good! I'd love to come back even for takeaway pizza.More

This little gem has delicious wood-fired pizza with the freshest ingredients! We had the pizza of the day- pesto sauce, chicken and pineapple. We usually take home a couple of pieces but we couldn’t help ourselves and ate the whole thing! It does have limited...lunch hours. My friends thought the shrimp chowder was a little too spicy for their liking.More

Mahalo. You folks make it all worthwhile.

The food was great, but the wait staff was stretched to the limit. Every table was filled and the service was slow as a result. Luck we made a reservation! We had the Baby Back Ribs (excellent) and the pork chop (almost as good, but...a little tough). There was a line at the door when we left, so service wasn't going to improve that night. The food was worth 5 stars.More

Mahalo Carl for your comments.

We noticed this restaurant as we were walking into the general store located right next door. There was a line of people waiting to get in, so we waited too. We waited about 30 minutes to get a table. Restaurant is pretty small, but cute....Menu is a bit limited and the busy lunch crowd may have been blamed for slow service. Food was ok at best. Not much places to eat at in Volcano, but I think I need to give this place another try when I return.More

I don't know if they have a kid's menu. This is a smaller restaurant that I wouldn't take a child under 12 to, as this cafe is more appropriate for couples who want to have a nice fine dining experience with conversation... More
