The food and service was very good. I had the lasagne. Portion size was perfect and the price was reasonable. We enjoyed the live entertainment.

Il Mondo has moved from the local pizza place, to a rather elegant interior, now complete with a long bar, excellent espresso , and Sergio's guitar music on Friday and Saturday nights The pizzas are still very good, the menu expanded and tasty.

Our wood fired pizza was delicious. The place is so nice, a real surprise in the area. It was a nice place to stop before the Waipio Valley. Service was quite friendly!

We stopped in after visiting the Waipio Valley. The food was great and we got to sit outside enjoying the fresh air. They close at 2pm and reopen for dinner. Not knowing this, we arrived at 2:10 and the server still got us a table....More
