This is a little "hole in the wall" location. You might miss it if your are not looking. It reminded me of the mom/pop restaurants in Italy that you just find by accident. The pastas are hand made and very fresh. Salads are good quality...More

We were on our way home from Maunakea and googled a restaurant near us. Cafe Concerto popped up. There is a good selection of pasta dishes and the servings were generous in size. The pasta was cooked perfectly and the toppings were very flavoursome. The...More
