My husband and I had two wonderful dinners here on our way to two performances in and beyond Waimea. My husband’s pizza was yummy (1/2 pepperoni and 1/2 Margherita). My Caesar salad with chicken was perfect. Service was fantastic!

We were hungry for pizza and after reading reviews drove up to eat there. We had pizza and shared a Caesar salad. The salad was exceptional, as was the pizza. Our waitress was very attentive and polite. Restaurant is very cute. Highly recommend.
