My wife and I selected Cafe' Pesto for a Wednesday lunch from the lineup of nearby restaurants listed by Trip Advisor. The restaurant is located in a shopping center that hosts other restaurants, colorful shops, and has a direct view of Hilo Bay. I went to Cafe' Pesto craving seafood, but selected a 9" Pepperoni Classico pizza after observing and smelling a pizza that was served to an adjacent table. My wife selected a 9" Pizza Luau. The 9" pizzas provided more than enough food for the two of us, especially combined with the complimentary fresh bread and very good garlic butter. The restaurant was fairly busy (few empty tables), but the service was frequent, accurate, and friendly. One of the servers even allowed me to charge my camera battery behind the hostess table while we ate. We were extremely pleased with our lunch selection. On an separate note, the Bed & Breakfast we stayed at after visiting Hilo advertised "personal 9" pizzas" from Cafe'Pesto as a dinner option for guests. We definitely understood why the B&B made the recommendation for Cafe' Pesto.
