Visited on 12/4/2017... group of 6. Wonderful server, Janie, took care of our table. 6:30pm and the place was bustling... noisy, but in a festive way. (so if you are looking for a quiet ambiance, this might not be your best bet). Very welcoming atmosphere....More

This Italian restaurant has it all. From the exquisite homemade spaghetti sauce, to best in class pizza. The service by Michael was the best blend of knowledge, personality, and attention.

This restaurant offers gluten free spaghetti and penne. I was able to enjoy the wild boar ragu. We also ordered the chicken saltimbocca, the spinach on the dish was very tasty. Both entrees were yummy. Service was attentive and friendly. The lanai was refreshing.

Very good food, great people and service. Can be pricey depending on what you order. However there are plenty of lower priced options. You get what you pay for. Very authentic flavor, just like mom!

Best food on the Big Island! The must! Cozy friendly atmosphere. No wait for the bar sittings. Amazing personalized cocktails mixed by awesome Toni!

Nice find, a bit off the tourist row. Fresh, gourmet pasta - gnocchi was awesome. A little pricey, but not too far off what you get on the island. Worth a visit if you’re looking for something different than the island fare.
