Once-tiny takeout pizzeria has evolved into one of the Big Island's casual-dining gems. – The Scene
Scents of savory Italian seasoning greet patrons at this harborside strip-mall restaurant. The front room is crowded with a few intimate tables and a well-stocked wooden bar. In the spacious main dining area, side booths and four-top tables are set with mismatched plates and wildflower-filled vases; the smooth black-and-white checked floor looks as if it were made for roller skating.
This island favorite was one of the first to adopt the concept of locally grown Hawaiian regional cuisine. Thin-crust pizzas come with Kalua-style pork, Waimea sweet onions and fresh pineapple. Kona-caught lobster, local prawns and scallops are served with chili risotto. Entree salads are colorful and eclectic, while Asian-inspired dishes like sesame sweet and sour chicken reflect the area's diversity. Creative martinis, liliko (passion fruit) iced tea and 100-percent Kona Peaberry coffee top the beverages list. Desserts highlights are macadamia-sprinkled apple crisp and warm macadamia nut-chocolate chip cookies.
