After reading other reviews we were reluctant to go here but since it was near our resort we decided to try it. The view of the ocean is to die for, the wait staff was very courteous and efficient, and the food was delicious!! I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Great view, great setting... but I'll corroborate that - like other reviews here - service can vary widely depending on your server. While our server was indeed charming, he ultimately forgot to bring our earlier ordered drinks until gently reminded upon dinner finally arriving... I will say that he did comp us on those drinks realizing his mistake so kudos... More

OK so I travel a lot and spend lots of time in a second home I have in Seattle(a fantastic food city)-I love great restaurants. So maybe my expectations were a bit high when friends suggested dinner at a "fine dining" Italian restaurant on the Kona Country Club property. The food was generously portioned. The flavors were good...the view was... More

I ate dinner here recently with friends. The view from the terrace dining was spectacular, looking over Keauhou Bay. The menu was somewhat sparse with standard choices and the food was just ok - nothing special. Our server was a bit surly and the wine list was limited and not particularly interesting. Despite the wonderful setting, there are many excellent... More

A small establishment at the golf course! Delicious Italiano food. The salad was fresh and creative. The shrimp and scallops melted in your moputh.

We were recommended this place for good italian food. On arrival we were greeted by a fairly unfriendly waiter who failed to offer us a table and requested we wait outside, despite it being happy hour. The food on the menu did look good and we would have liked to have tried but were dissapointed with the initial service.

One of our strangest restaurant visits ever......We didn't get to eat. My wife & I decided to give their pupus at Happy Hour a try. Website said Happy hour 4:30-6:30, so we got there at 5:25, and were told, "You only have 5 or 6 minutes left, so I asked if we had to sit at the bar, or if... More

Great ambiance & view of Keauhou Bay. Good food with plenty of parking. Prices are on the expensive side.

Waiter, there's a fly in my soup AND in my salad AND on my glass AND on my fries! The new restaurant, Amici's, at the Kona Country Club stinks, literally! Flies everywhere, so many flies that I had to have my food boxed so I could eat it at home. The tables are filthy, no tablecloths, flimsy, cheap paper napkins,... More

Went to have dinner without a reservation and was told no walkins! Most unwelcome restaurant I have ever been in. No one in bar, all tables empty at 5:00pm.
