My husband and I have been coming to this restaurant whenever we are in the Big Island because the food is outstanding. However this time we had the most amazing experience ever. We were fortunate to be seated at the chef's table. That allowed us to speak with owner and Chef James as he went about making various dishes and other items. He couldn't have been more warm and engaging. I admit to being a foodie and the opportunity to ask Chef James questions about the dishes and him and staff was just remarkable. But above all the food is outstanding. I'm a bit of an Italian food snob having made Italian food for over 40 years and having gone to Italy several times, I can tell you his food is extremely authentic, fresh tasting, and really delicious. We had an appetizer of beef carpacio, the best grilled octopus..so tender, the special of the day a fish with 2 types of pesto and a squid ink pasta arrabbiatta with shrimp, followed by lemon panna cotta and limoncello. It was a lot of food but we were celebrating a birthday. Our server was so attentive and contributed to our extraordinary dining. Likewise the hostess who made it all possible was so warm. We even got to meet the line chef's and staff who make the magic happen in the kitchen. All so very nice. Truly an amazing experience. We will be back!

Food is absolutely define. Atmosphere is ok but sit outside. Very noisy inside and pretty cramped.

Had 3 GOATS (greatest of all time) in one meal here: Octopus, Brussels Sprouts, and house Limoncello. Do not miss this experience. Jason and the staff are amazing as well, and will do anything they can to make your experience as memorable as ours was.

Would be 5 if atmosphere was better. Too many tables close together in small space. Lots of people talking loud makes for bad vibe. Food and service a 5++.
