I was recently diagnosed with a gluten allergy. The waitress took the time to double check my order with the chef and made some alternate recommendations to accommodate my allergy. The food was fresh, well prepared and delicious! The wait-staff where attentive and friendly. I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking for great food in Hilo! Mahalo!
This restaurant was highly recommended to us. Our only experience there was a great disappointment. We were greeted and seated promptly. We then sat for nearly 10 minutes before our waiter realized we were at his table. He requested our drink order and I ordered a Guinness. I was told shortly thereafter, they were out of Guinness (it was 7:15 PM) and would I like something else. I chose a local pale ale instead and we ordered dinner. My wife ordered passion fruit iced tea with her meal order as well. Within a reasonable time, our dinner was delivered, both of us were surprised at the small amounts of food for the price and my wife's tea was never delivered. After waiting for our server to show up, we had finished the small dinner, our check was delivered, with the tea included. I followed our waiter to the back to request he remove the tea that was not served. It was nothing like our friends recommended and we're in no hurry to return.
I work on a cruise ship and every week when we come to Hilo, we head into town to eat. Not only one of the easiest resturants to find but it's easy to recommend to guests because they always have great food and great service. Pizza's, calzones, and pasta dishes. Yum. We especailly like the Petrone margaritas. And the guys are cute too!
Moderately pricey. Lots of veggie options that are tasty! Mushroom miso soup-OK
Eggplant/Artichoke/SD Tomato calzone-delicious but smaller than expected.
East/West Pizza---YUMMY. Gorgonzola cream sauce instead of tomato sauce really makes this pizza.
Beer selection: Okay, not impressive
Booze: Order the classic margarita on the rocks with the Li Hing Mui powder. You won't be sorry.
In downtown Hilo, free parking, friendly service except when we were ready for dessert and the bill.
