Ok food great serviceThe gnocchi is to die for- light and fluffy and the truffle sauce is yummy. The caprese was different- the balsamic comes in the form of little balls which provide a burst of flavor. The pizza is more like a flatbread and the type of mushrooms they had on it was kind of strange. The service was impeccable and the staff were really great with the kids. We ate at 5:30 pm and were practically the only ones dining for the most part we were there.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNever had a more professionalNever had a more professional and charming waiter than Patrck. Awesome service, thank you.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMItalian in Hawaii ? YES !OK, so you're in Waikiki and thinking, "Italian in Hawaii, would we want to eat Italian food in the tropics?" Our answer in this case is YES! The setting with a view of the Royal Hawaiian gardens if very nice, we ate al fresco and it was perfect. The food was REALLY delicious; there were five of us foodies and we all liked our dinners. A criticism, if you could call it that, is the Chessecake Factory-sized helpings. In our case both the appetizer and entre could have been split between two people.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMLove, Love, Love the food!Terrific Pasta & great service and ambiance.

the Happy Hour specials from our table. The last time we were there in 2012 we had a
great time with the delicious Happy Hour or "Pau Hana" as we say in Hawaiian, specials.
