“Great Calzones...”
Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

We started our meal by sharing a Greek salad and then we both had calzones. I had a meatball one and my partner had a sausage one. Both where great. Not what we where expecting or use to coming from New England. Our waitress was sweet and attentive. Worth the stop.

“A local favourite and well worth it!”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

We were told to check out cafe il Mondo by our bed and breakfast host. It was well worth it; really amazing pasta, great pizza, and some of the friendliest and most professional table service we've had anywhere (I'm not kidding!).

“Good place to taste a Calzone”
Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

We were lodging at the state park next to Honokaa. We went there the first day and tasted the Calzone. They are really good!
We came back the next day to taste the lasagnas! Excellent place. BYOB. There is a grocery store next to it and the beers are cheap.

“Great little eatery”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Stopped in honokaa whilst driving round the island as we spotted this restaurant/cafe and were hungry. only had sandwiches but they were fresh made,warm and well filled. kids asked for theirs with a variation and they made it without question. chef was spinning fresh pizza dough in the open kitchen! quality food, good price, friendly staff.

“italy in hawaii”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

drove up the coast from Hilo and stopped in Honokaa for a bite. glad we did as this little gem of an italian restaurant was waiting for us. we sat outside on the sidewalk table, loved its small town charm.
Did the special of the day - fresh pasta with a basil pesto, YUM! but hands down, unmatched & without a doubt they have the BEST calzones ever. we devoured it. wanted to order some to go, didn't but actually contemplated driving back the next day. Ridiculously good.
Great little shops and ice cream places too.
Gay friendly.
