Cafe 8 1/2 Review

***Mahalo for visiting.  This post is a review of the food from March 2015.

One of my favorite restaurants for Italian food is a small hole-in-the-wall joint in downtown Honolulu called Cafe 8 1/2. I will actually drive to downtown just to eat here. Yes, it is that good! 

They only have a handful of things on their menu (4 pasta dishes, 3 "other stuff", 2 salads and 2 sandwiches), but they do it all well.  My picks for pasta are the bolognese (pictured below) and raditore verde. 

Best way to dine here is to get in the first seating at 11:30 am. 

Park at Ali'i Place next door for $.75 per half hour. Parking garage is cash only.

Complimentary Focaccia Bread
