My wife and I stopped for a late lunch before a performance down the street at the old Peoples' Theatre. This old sugar plantation town is just a few blocks long. Cafe Il Mondo is right on the main street of town, delightful waitress, excellent thin-crust pizza, and their salad had delicious chopped fresh tomato.

Awesome independent small town pizza. Cash only, great food and service, bring your own beer or wine.

The special was ravioli with spinach with mushrooms and sausage on top with the marinara sauce. The portion was very filling and the taste was very good. Comes with a nice salad and some garlic focaccia. The pizza was really good. Nice cheese and really nice sauce. The value cannot be beat especially on the big island. The service was wonderful and very friendly. The bathroom was not for the faint of heart but it is small town Hawaii in an old building so .... Overall this is a place to stop for sure. I hear the calzone is incredible and next time I will try it.

Small. Smack in the middle of downtown Honokaa. Very good pizza and sandwiches. Fresh ingredients. I had the Waipio (pizza). Pleasant, gregarious chef. *The* place to stop on the way to Waipio.

Granted, we were there when it was busy and took the final table... which was outside in the dark on the street. Once a table freed up inside we moved ourselves. Service was slow all evening but like I said, the food was pretty good, and it was pretty busy.
