My friend and I enjoyed the price fix 3 course dinner if 19.99. We started with​ a big salad that had a tangy dressing that we liked. Then I had mussels with pasta and my friend had salmon on kale. We each had a glass of red French silk r. We ended with gelato. All delicious. Great service. Parking available.

We came here when the wait time for Kalapawai was estimated at an hour (after all, it was a Saturday, 6pm). At Formaggio, the six of us had a choice of being seated right away at the high table with stools close to the front, or wait 10 minutes for a regular table--we opted for the latter and got a...

Food was good but price was high. Service was good until it came time to bring our mains out. They sat for 5 minutes and as you can imagine the food was just warm. We took it home. Next time we'll sit at the bar for happy hour.

We've been to this area often and must have driven by this restaurant a hundred times. Today, however, we were intrigued by a sign advertising their "Sunset Special" 3-course dinner for $19.99. We went for it, and what a great surprise! We were treated to fall-off-the-bone ribs, insanely delicious broccoli mashed potatoes (so good we ordered some extra to take... More

I rarely write a negative review, but I have to report that after living in Kailua for more than a decade, I'm not enamored with this restaurant. We went there recently and had a mediocre experience. The service was fine, but the restaurant is very dark and the acoustics make it hard to have a conversation with someone right next... More

Sat at the bar, and enjoyed dinner and drinks, chatting to locals and tourists and the super friendly server. Happy hour was just ending as we sat to eat, but she found a way to make us happy! Taco's were great and the steak was cooked to perfection!

Came here for Thanksgiving as I was visiting my boyfriend who lives in Kailua. Food was excellent and service was great. The owner even came to talk to us for a bit and was extremely nice making sure everything was superb. Also, dessert is a must, it was so delicious. Definitely recommend!

Was treated to New Year's dinner at this restaurant and got to enjoy their special of the evening. Mium what a treat! Lobster tail with shrimps and orzo. We arrived early and by the end of our meal the place was full...a good indication. A special mention to the courteous staff. Thank you to my hosts (cousins) for treating me....Happy... More

We saw their advertisement for sangria and thought we'd stop in. Sangria was great and the appetizer was just as good. Topped it off with desert and we were satisfied.
