Welcome to Pueo’s Osteria, an Italian-inspired, inviting restaurant that provides great food, prepared from scratch daily, complimented with a stocked wine list and set in a delightful osteria environment. Co-Proprietor & Chef James Babian focuses on original creative dishes, pairing the finest, authentic Italian products with select seafood, produce and meats from boutique farms (sourced locally whenever possible), including “farm-fresh” products from local farmers’ markets.
Pueo's is located at the new Waikoloa Plaza in Waikoloa Village with ample free parking and designated pick-up stalls right outside the restaurant.
The "Pueo" is a nocturnal owl indigenous to Hawaii, which symbolizes Chef's focus on serving dinner and into the evening hours. Pueo's Osteria caters to locals and visitors via sit-down, bar and take-out. Engaging service, approachable pricing, great flavors and a lively atmosphere await at Pueo’s Osteria – food, wine & fun … "where the night owls meet."

    This is a consistently excellent and creative restaurant, definitely worth a trip to the Village. The kitchen executes Italian staples flawlessly, and comes up with specials that sound mind-blowing (we didn’t try). And the wait staff was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. I will be back!

    My wife and I dine at Pueo's often. The food quality, taste, and appearance are always outstanding. The service is always friendly and outstanding. The chefs typically create Italian dishes using local ingredients.

    This restaurant is operated by a highly acclaimed chef who knows how to prepare some beautiful, tasty real Italian dishes. If you eat at only one place in Hawaii Big Island, eat here… you will love it!

    Great find on the Big Island of Hawaii. Great ambience but more importantly great food. We ate at the bar and enjoyed great conversation with locals as well. A must try.

    Pueo’s is our go to place for special occasions and never disappoints. The cocktails were creative and they don’t skimp on the ingredients. Everything we had was delicious, 2 types of meat pasta and the veal. The garlic cheese bread was so much better than any other I have ever had and servings were generous. Having enough to take home for later in always great. We skipped dessert so can’t tell you anything about that. Staff was very friendly and service was excellent. The owners have been with this restaurant from the beginning and do a fabulous job. Thanks for a great experience.
