BELLA MIA PIZZARIA

BELLA MIA PIZZARIA
HONOLULU, HAWAII 

We were driving towards downtown Honolulu on Beretania when we saw a cute little new restaurant called Bella Mia.  The entire restaurant seating area is on a lanai open to the neighborhood.  Really nice set up but there is only enough parking for around four cars.  This is a huge problem.  We could not get into the lot and traffic behind us nearly rear ended me.  I wanted to throw in the towel right then and there, but my better half convinced me to park in a apartment complex where she knew the owner.  We parked and walked a block and crossed Beretania Street.  We decided to try a salad, pasta and pizza to get a good variety of what Bella Mia has to offer.  All of the dishes came at once after a short wait.  The salad was delivered last.  The Supreme Pizza ($14.95) was 14".  They also serve a smaller 10" and larger 16" version.  I found the pizza to be very bland and overloaded with way too much cheese.  To be honest, I have had better pizza out of a frozen box.  The Pasta with Meat Sauce was just o.k.  At $8.95 it is a pretty good deal.  There was enough for two people on the plate.  The Antipasto Salad ($8.95) was good, but I hate the fufu lettuce they use.  It is the kind with the bitter black and purple stuff.  Liked the dressing and deli meats.  This is the same Bella Mia as the one in Kaimuki but with a smaller, less expensive menu.  I would probably not return here because of the lack of parking and taste.  UPDATE:  THIS RESTAURANT HAS CLOSED.
