We stopped at Cafe Il Mondo on our way back to the Kohala Coast after spending the day on the Hamakua Coast. We shared the pizza special (sausage, roasted tomatoes, feta, bell peppers, and whole cloves of garlic) and two salads. The pizza was great - very fresh and all the flavors went together nicely. The chef even gave us a small loaf of focaccia, hot out of the oven. We took our Tropical Dreams ice cream to go and walked up and down the main street of Honoka'a.

After visiting the Waipio Valley, my wife and I were looking for a place to stop for lunch. We decided to walk into cafe Il Mondo. Not a very big place at all, but the friendly smiles great you when you enter. There is a small bar and about 6 or 7 tables. We decided to go with their "Big Island" pizza, which is their variation of what is commonly known on the mainland as hawaiian pizza. Ham and pineapples. The pizza was very good, close to a traditional Italian pizza. Thin crust, good amount of sauce and good amount of toppings. Make sure not to miss it if you need a bite to eat!

Small friendly Italian style Cafe. Family run. Good freshly home cooked food at very reasonably prices. Try the Calzones yum! Open until 8 p.m. in the evening. Apart from a drive through this was the only place open until this time of night. We returned for a second helping and were not disappointed.

Also recommended in the Lonely Planets Guide.

July 2006.
