    Our pizza was soggy, and only half the pizza had any cheese. The waiter literally set the pizza onto the table as he walked past and never said a word to us. He returned 20 minutes later and his only comment wss about our scarfing the pizza.

    The atmosphere was great with the beautiful view but the food left a lot to be desired. There was hardly any flavor in our food. $120 and I wish I would have just ordered a dominos pizza instead. However, we’ve realized that everything we’ve eaten on this property has a lot to be desired. For the premium price you pay, I’d at least expect some flavor. Super disappointing to pay so much money and leave with desire for a dominoes pizza for some flavor.

    The bruschetta and insalata caprese were great starters. The mushroom ravioli was delicious too, as was the rustic Roman pizza. Our server, Manny, was very attentive but didn’t hover.

    We got there when they first opened at 5 pm. This restaurant turned out to be much better than we expected. Service was excellent. Our server took good care of us and we appreciated the attention. The food was really good. We had chicken parmesan and a salad. Cooked and prepared to perfection. I had a margarita ($22) which was more than I normally pay but it was probably the best tasting margarita that I have every had before. Yummy! Other prices for food items were very reasonable so no complaints on that end. Highly recommended. One of the highlights of our trip.

    Loud and brightly lit inside. Al fresco dining preferable. Food was outstanding!

    Wildly overpriced location. There is always the cost of Hawaii and a vacation property, but this cost as much as a fine dinner typically would - akin to going all out at Roys. I knew the bill would be a decent chunk at the end, but when looking back, after the meal, it was clearly just too much for a family dinner on property. Nothing was bad in quality, bear in mind, but just nothing too exotic to justify.

    Dinner was great! We’ve been to Nui a few times we could tell that there’s a new chef in charge!!! Food tasted better than the last time. MJ has been our server a few times and she’s always very nice and always smiling very knowledgeable about the food on the menu.

    We had a Tuscan salad and another insalata that was off the menu, don't remember the name but both were great for dinner but they weren't counted as entres for the free resort guava sorbet, too bad because the sorbet is quite good, maybe next time.
