Aloha Paul, You have reviewed the incorrect restaurant in Volcano Village. We are Cafe Ono and are only open for lunch and do not serve pizza. Next time do stop by Cafe Ono. We have great reviews on TripAdvisor. Mahalo,

Went with husband and 2 children on route to the volcano. After some pretty mediocre food in recent days this was a welcome find. Fresh food served by friendly staff and owner. Nice to look around the gallery too. Gardens make a nice relaxed setting.

I am sorry, I must have clicked on the wrong review. I get so confused with Tripadvisor sometimes I don't know where to click. It must have been for the one above yours. Thank you for visiting us and hope you come again soon.
