“Great food! Interior style (and condition) like from 20-30 years ago”
Reviewed August 6, 2011

The food was great: Classic American style Italian food. Good service, too!
Interior looks like from 20-30 years ago, which is kind of cool. However, the place has obviously not gotten much maintenance or repair since then, either. Frankly, we were feeling like having a meal in a developping country. I have never seen a hardwood floor as worn out as this, the walls had stains.
Everything looked clean, though!

“Great find!”
Reviewed July 18, 2011

Found this gem on our way to Kona from Hilo and highly recommend it. We had a great pizza and salad and both were excellent! Portions were big and service great. We sat outside and even though there was some traffic and loud cars without mufflers going through town, didn't detract from the food. Prices very reasonable and food local and fresh.

“better than chain restaurant pizza!”
Reviewed June 21, 2011

We wanted a light dinner and found a very good pizza place. We had the Chef Salad with Chicken, Garlic Focaccia, and Waipi'o Pizza. This was more than enough for 2 people to share. The salad was fresh and came with the focaccia ($9.25). The pizza had mushrooms, olives, onion, bell pepper, cheese and fresh tomato ($13.75 for a small).
Then we noticed that they had ice cream. Best choice we made all day! We had a scoop of coconut and a scoop of chocolate. They went great together and since we were on vacation we decided to eat the ice cream first! Very good! I will warn you that they don't take credit card so make sure you bring cash.
