Stopped here after getting a recommendation from a local tour guide. The food was amazing and you can stop in the market across the street and BYOB your alcoholic beverages. They also have an amazing dessert counter.

A great find upcountry! We were in Maui during the tropical storm, and headed upcountry for some sight seeing. Stopped here for lunch, and it was so good we came again! The pastas are amazing and big enough to split! We loved the pesto!
