“Nothing Special”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

We ate here on our last day for breakfast. We didn't feel like driving outside the resort area. It was a mistake. The food was at best okay. The service was fine. There were flies hanging out around our food. I had the cinnamon orange french toast that tasted like neither cinnamon or orange. It came with a variety of island fruit aka grapes and apples?! They don't make sunny side up eggs, the only eggs they offer are scrambled. The portions for the price was acceptable, but Hawaii has so much better to offer!

“Don't come all the way to Hawaii and eat here”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

We like Italian, and ended up here .. but it's really pretty average at best.

Slow service, front staff, waiters were not rude, but not very friendly (like they would prefer to be somewhere else lets say). Food portions were generous, but quality was average ...

I eat at the one in the Chicago airport and its probably my favorite at the Airport .. When in Hawaii .. there are many better places to choose .... I'd recommend going for a short drive to the neighbouring places even if you happen to be staying in the complex for a better meal

“Just an ok breakfast”
Reviewed 7 November 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

The breakfast selection wasn't great, and the food was just average at best. Especially disappointed that their fresh fruit selection was mostly apples and grapes.. everywhere else had local fruits like pineapple, mango, and guava. On the plus side, they are one of the few places around actually open for breakfast.

“It's not Hawaii, but it's good Italian”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

My wife and I enjoyed a nice meal here. The service was good, the food was very good (mushroom ravioli and eggplant parmesan) and the drinks (margaritas) were sufficiently strong (though not cheap). While it wasn't local fare, for the location it was good and it was affordable.
