V LOUNGE PIZZA - HONOLULU, HAWAII
After meeting the owners of the V Lounge on the golf course today, I just had to drop in and try their pizza. I have read numerous reviews in local magazines and newspapers that said this was some of the best pizza in Hawaii. The owners were very nice on the course and explained to me that they use the best ingredients imported from Italy and make their own mozzarella cheese. We ventured down to Kona street across from Ala Moana Center and found a nice little bar with very friendly employees. We were in before 7:00 pm so the crowd was small. Mostly older couples eating pizza and a large party doing the same. The waitress and bartender were very friendly and provided excellent service with smiles all around. We tried two pizzas. The Margarita and the Supreme. Both were around $15 each. I loved the Margarita. Fresh basil, cheese and sauce on a light crust. The pizzas are cooked in a Kiawe wood oven and come out with a nice char on the crust. Only complaint is that it was a little greasy in the middle. The Supreme had cheese, onions, mushrooms, prosciutto and a sunny side up egg in the middle. The mushrooms were fresh and flavorful. The egg added a different dimension to the pizza and I liked it. The V Lounge only serves pizza. Nothing else on the food side. It is mostly a bar that is opened to 4:00 am. I will return again because the pizza is good and the staff seemed really to appreciate that we were there. Hope this place does well.
