As you have seen in my last review, the service wasn't as good as usual, with the Pizza oven still broken, no Peroni on tap and no more Chardonnay. Now Amicis closed with a small note on their door that they will resume operations at a different location in the future. As I heard the Kona Vistas restaurant located at... More

We discovered this darling little restaurant on our hunt for some good pasta. We had the Caesar salad, onion soup and penne with gorgonzola sauce, all of which were very good. The cheesecake for dessert was perfect. The pasta portions are large and all was reasonably priced. A few good beers on tap was a bonus. Not noisy and a... More

It is tucked away in a small plaza though I understand they are moving. Very friendly service and good Italian food. I would highly recommend.

Slightly upscale. Both inside dining with A/C and patio area. We were in the mood for pizza and weren't disappointed. Nice menu with Italian food.

Returned to Amicis because I was craving Spaghetti, the last visit was ok, but still not good enough to return on a regular basis. This time I was surprised by the quality of food, outstanding with a lot of flavor, just like Italy, salads were fresh and dressed nicely, main course absolutely delicious. Waitress was accommodating in every way, the... More

There are not many Italian restaurants in Kona so we can't be too picky about the food. I've been here several times and found it to be consistently good, if not great. I've also been to Italy five times and find the same thing to be true there. My favorites are Calamri Fritti, Amici Salad, and Spagetti Carbonara. The service... More

We're used to: eating at ugly strip malls in industrial zones on Big Island and weren't surprised by its location... and, to Hawaiian overpricing... and, to the less than authentic culinary interpretations (be it Japanese, Mexican or Italian etc.).... and, to the local's "good enough" attitude at what they do... and, to the lack of professional (and, in this case,...
