The name is very deceiving and I doubt we would have gone if not given the recommendation by other locals. They serve some top notch Italian cuisine and the service was excellent and very friendly. The appetizers and main course were all top notch for what seems to be just a little cafe from the outside. Like a lot of... More

What a find in the small town of Wahiawa. Not the greatest looking nor the best parking lot, but the inside of the little restaurant was themed so Italian and cute for a date. On the third Tuesday of every month, they host a wine tasting, which we didnt know about when we visited, so it got very loud with... More

While staying in Mililani, which doesn't have a lot of dining choices, we ventured to Wahiawa, only a few miles away, for dinner. We stumbled upon Cafe Olive, a tiny hole in the wall Italian restaurant. The staff was very attentive and the food was amazing.

We read the reviews and we're excited about this place. It was a hole in the wall like people said but I would not call it a gem. Waitress was not very good and service was slow. Food was just ok. My kids had spaghetti and the kids spaghetti was very spicy (our kids like spicy...we are from Texas), my... More

Was a bit skeptical at first but when I walked in the door and saw this quaint cafe, I hoped the food would be as good as the atmosphere. I was not to be disappointed. Super taste, I'm hard to impress when it comes to Italian food, this place gets a thumbs up from me. Great prices. Super, fabulous food.... More

Never thought I would have found this little treasure in out in the middle of no where Wahiawa. Nice little Italian restaurant with great food at great prices. Definitely worth the trip.. Juat know the place is only open for lunch and dinner.

Tasty food, well priced, and nice service and atmosphere! I had the chef's special pesto fettuccine with chicken, asparagus and cherry tomatoes ~$16. My husband had the fettuccine meatballs ~$10. We shared the mozzarella sticks ~$6 and were provided with free bread with olive and balsamic. I would go back if I was in the area again :)
