Went to the Hanalei Pizza per TripAdvisor review but was disappointed. Although the establishment was cool and funky looking and had a wait, I didn't like the pizza. They did not have a thin crust option and the pizza tasted like it was mostly flavorless crust. The guy did twirl it on his fist which was cool to watch but I found the pizza very lacking in flavor and very expensive for what it was. They feature their sauce made with wine, but they put very little on and because of the type of crust, it just disappears into the crust. I did not notice any special flavor in the sauce. Ingredients were meager. Friendliness wasn't apparent. The consistently best pizza I have had in the past on the island of Kauai (didn't get there this year) was The Brick Oven. One year I had a good pizza at Pizzeta (or some such name in Koloa) but another year it was not.
