“Great Sauce at Serpicos”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Outside of the East Coast I've found that it is hard to find a tasty fresh plum tomato sauce. Serpicos delivers that and more. Their pizza is thin crust style and tasty. My favorite is the chicken parmaesan. The restaurant could use a little organization and service can be slow but it is friendly.

“Good location”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Nice owner. Very easy place to get into. The food is okay which is why I don't go more often. Pizza is the best thing on the menu. Food is too greasy and the salads are a bit vinegary for me.

“Great breakfast”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

On our way to Haleakala we wanted to get breakfast and ventured off the highway into Pukalani. Not far up the hill we found Serpico's. Not fancy but had wonderful eggs with spinach and kale and the boys had eggs benedict and french toast and said it was delicious. Nice to go to a local non-touristy place for a change ( and not pay tourist prices!) It was less expensive than Denny's.

“Take a Sandwich and Leave the Cannoli (and don't eat the pizza lunch special)”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

This review is only about the lunch pizza special (and the cannoli). In a word it's bad. They had five or so pizzas sitting, just waiting for someone to order the special and eat them. I had high hopes that they were fresh, because most of the pizzas were still whole or nearly so and it was about noon. Unfortunately, they must have been sitting so long that they had reached room temperature and they had to reheat our slices. The reheating dried them out and nearly burnt them. The crust was so brittle that it literally broke apart when eating it. Either the sauce or grease had soaked through parts of the crust, so it was soggy and limp in places. The sauce could use more flavor, too.

That said, they did have fresh, homemade bread for sandwiches that looked really good and people eating the sandwiches seemed to be enjoying them. Additionally, people had told me that the pizza they have at night (not premade) is good. For these reasons I'm giving it an "Average" rating. Otherwise it would have been a "Terrible" rating.

Unlike in the movie The Godfather, at Serpico's you can leave the cannoli. It's not just bad, it was the worst cannoli I've ever had. The filling texture reminded me of curdled milk. It was disgusting. So take a sandwich, leave the cannoli.
