Old world flavors with enduring, quality service. Try the Farfelle primavera, or the sausage or pepperoni calzone...The Pa'auilo pizza is also a local favorite. Whether dining or just stopping by for drinks, you will leave happy!

The only place to eat in Honokaa for a sit down meal. Great ambience, but no view. Pricing is outstanding for the food quality.
