RESTAURANTS AND SHOPS IN KAIMUKI
My daughter was telling me that she wanted pasta for lunch. We were in Kaimuki so I decided to try Bella Mia again. We have dined at one of Bella Mia's other locations and were not fans of the thick and cheesy pizza but loved the large portions and reasonable prices. I was surprised when the waitress greeted our table with a bowl of piping hot bread and marinara sauce. Nice start to lunch I thought. We tried the Pasta with Meat Sauce for $10.95. My wife told the waitress that she would be sharing the pasta with my daughter. Rather than bring out one big plate of pasta and throw an extra plate down, the chef prepared two plates of pasta for the price of one. The waitress delivered two beautiful and large portions of pasta to our table. Really impressed with this service. Also impressed with the amount of meat in the sauce and the flavor of the sauce. This was good pasta. Everyone liked the flavor. I ordered the Hot Italian Combination Sandwich ($9.95). This is a huge sandwich piled with meat and melted cheese. Liked the lettuce and tomato to add crunch, color and fresh taste. We spent $20 here and took about half of the pasta and half the sandwich home. Really good deal. I would return here more often if I could convince the chef to make a thin crust pizza with light toppings. Bella Mia delivered on service, price and taste. Great job! We will return again.
