We always make it a point to stop by Cafe Pesto when in Hilo - depending on our schedule, we usually find it a good lunch spot - especially the pizza. Nice beer selection also...

Local restaurant with lots of choices. Their pizza is good. So are the entrees. Little pricey, but that's from my perspective.

My wife and I ate here yesterday and we loved the food. The prices aren't bad and the food is good. I think you will be OK with pretty much anything on the menu as it all looked amazing.

We took visiting family here for dinner (3 adults and two kids). Everyone was very pleased with their entrees, which were fresh and different without being overly complicated. My husband loved the mango chicken dish. I enjoyed the fig and prosciutto pizzette (a generously sized appetizer) and the caprese salad. Service was efficient and agreeable. The night we visited, a guitar and sax duo was playing mellow jazz. Reservations a must as this place is always busy.

We stopped for a quick lunch, what a pleasant surprise.

Dress is casual.

Service was very friendly. We had burgers and a salad. Veggies are local farm fresh, local beef, and made to order! And the fries are fabulous. My husband had local beer and I had wine. Both were very good.

Would definitely go back!
