“First class experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2012

We went for dinner and were initially disappointed that the menu seemed somewhat limited and didn't offer as many vegetarian choices as the lunch menu, but our waiter Anthony took it all in stride and with a pleasant demeanor and always friendly but genuine smile, said they would love to satisfy us and gave a number of off-menu suggestions they would be happy to fix. He had such a calm, welcoming attitude... he made us feel right at home and in the company of good friends.

While waiting for our main courses (since this was dinner), Anthony served a complimentary fresh salad over which he sprinkled freshly ground black pepper and grated romano cheese, as well as steaming hot bread fresh from the oven -- delicious! When we finished our first basket of bread, he happily brought a second. The main courses were delicious, over which he happily sprinkled fresh pepper and cheese. The eggplant parmigiana was tasty and came with generous helpings of marinara sauce, as well as a side-dish of pasta. The pasta alfredo was rich, creamy and very satisfying. We had been quite hungry before, but there was no room for dessert!

All in all, we had a first class experience, In fact, this was our best and most memorable meal of our entire 3 weeks on the Big Island. Anthony, a 7th generation Hawaiian, is absolutely one of the best waiters we have ever encountered -- always so friendly, happy and willing to please. We would be happy to go again just to be served by Anthony, but of course the food is also first class. A truly great dining experience.

“Stuffy and dark but foods decent”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2012

Try there lunch specials like the Turkey Panini and there creamy pesto sauce but stay away from the Lasagna. Fresh bread is served upon arrival and service is good.Choose the french onion soup when offered soup or salad. but beware of the old decorations inside there a bit spooky

“Pasta and a Roll”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2012

I ate lunch here. I had been here before. The decor is more formal for Hilo- table cloths and large framed pictures on the wall. The staff was curteous and efficient. I had the Angel hair pasta Bolognese. It was good. A diner roll that was heated came with it. No salad included or added.
