This place doesn't look like a place you would go to for a nice dinner. We were pleasantly surprised and happy that we chose to go here to eat. The service was great--we got there just before 5 for dinner and were seated right off the bat. People kept flowing in until we left. The food was delicious and hot. The portions were perfect. We got plenty full with a little food left over.

Very relaxed casual setting. A local family spot. The food is good consistent and always plentiful. Expect leftovers. The staff friendly and at lunch time you can beat the lunch specials.

We entered the restaurant a little apprehensive. With the many restaurants in Kauai with breathtaking views our first thought was maybe we should leave. So glad we didn't! I guess you could tell by now, the place itself left a lot to be desired. However, what it lacked in decor it certainly made up in the food. Three of our party of four had the specials. All the entrees were truly exceptional. Homemade sausage and a variety of pastas were as good as you would find in any upscale Italian Restaurant. The portions were also quite ample. The only disappointment was the dessert, described as a chocolate creme brulee, but was really more of a pudding. If you want great Italian food and don't mind a "rough around the edges" environment, then you will not be disappointed.

So maybe we just went here to satisfy a friend who promised to spread the word after they helped her out with some special food-allergy preparations, but were glad we did. Served the very traditional Italian standards, but very well done. Good value for the money.

(Kind of an odd little hole in the wall. Parking is awkward, and the main dining room is only open late. For lunch or early evening you go in a different door with a different name on it to a mcuh smaller room. I don't know why, but you can't make that up).

This little restaurant has big taste and a nice atmosphere. I had the arugula warm goat cheese salad it was very good and large enough to share. I also tried the pesto pasta. It was very flavorful and had great zesty taste if you like pesto. This area has very few choices of great restaurants so it will stand out. If you love tiramisu don't bother with theirs you will be disappointed, as it is just a cheese cake with Oreo cooking crust. Try the mappers ice cream instead.
