You want great food, service, and atmosphere? THIS IS THE PLACE. I always come here when in town. Full servings, service second to none on isle, and dishes only a true Italian ma-ma could make. Wow! What more can I say? There are ""immitation Italian"" places here... many to be sure, but THIS IS THE REAL ITALIAN of Hawaii. If you're living here or only visiting, take a cab from Waikiki Beach and enjoy a lunch (great price) or dinner.

Not the usual cuisine you'd expect to encounter while perusing the mall; however, that's exactly what you get here. It's prices reflect the isolation of Hawaii from the mainland: high. The meals and service are great, though there is no waiting area for seating, causing you to be cramed with many others on a one-person-only sidewalk: cramped. No complimentary beverages while waiting in the rain, on the street. Overall, including the wait, it's a 7.
