haven't been here in a little bit, but went 3 times last year! we really loved it. the first time i sat at the bar with a couple girlfriends b/c they were booked out. the food was really good and the waitress was just as good about taking care of us as if we were at a table. and when we couldn't decide which wine to order, she offered us a free sampling of two of them (they have their liquor license now)!
the next time, i took my husband and he loved the smoked chicken fettucine (it's WAYYYYYYYYY better than it sounds). i ordered the pork chop, which i guess is their specialty. it was very good. again, the service was wonderful and the waiter really knowledgeable and helpful about wines. again, he gave us a little sample to help us decide. my husband raved all the way home about the fettucine (i kept thinking, "this is just fettucine! geez!")
the third time, we brought a couple friends and jim talked one of them into the fettucine. so i tried some of hers and i have to admit, it was FREAKIN' GOOD. i don't know what it was, but it's not just chicken fettucine. there's sundried tomatoes, pine nuts and other goodies in there and the sauce just makes it. i had the first so-so dish i've had there...i think it was lamb. but i love lamb and i was craving it. but it turned out not so good. but it was my fault b/c i did ask the waiter like i always do for recommendations and when i asked about the lamb, he said he'd probably pass on it, but i really wanted lamb for some reason that night and i should've listened to him. at least he was honest and accurate. :) i think it was something about the sauce--it was weird.
anyway, i'd still go back! but there are too many great places in honolulu i haven't tried yet!
