They were very accommodating for two requests on preparing the food in our party of 4. Starting with the Kale and tomato soup-- everyone enjoyed it. Both the heirloom tomato salad and Cesar were both delicious. Everyone finished their main dishes and having tried them all I feel none were subpar. My lobster ravioli was amazing but certainly the cream... More

This is my favorite fine dining restaurant in Kailua. Everything is great: Service, drinks, food & atmosphere. The staff makes this place fantastic. The gnocchi is insane!

Call for reservations if you want the patio which we recommend! We split a salad and ordered the grilled salmon with pasta on the side. Perfectly cooked and not dried out and the pasta was al dented with a subtle garlic butter sauce. We will return!

Four of us went for dinner. Three of us enjoyed our meals. Our fourth diner had ordered the veal and it was full of gristle. When he complained about it there were no apologies or any sort of consideration for the quality of the meal. We felt that our waitress was very condescending. We won't be returning.

Very friendly service and we got a table even without reservation. Food was good and reasonable priced. We even got surprised with a 25% saving based on the mad Monday special.

We absolutely love this place. You pretty much can order anything on the menu and it will come out great. Like these home-made raviolis with their signature marinara sauce. One if our all time favorites😋 Tonight's special was the Short Ribs w/ Rissotto. Quite nice👌 I ate the whole dang thing. I figured if I don't eat dessert tonight, I... More
