Il Mondo has moved from the local pizza place, to a rather elegant interior, now complete with a long bar, excellent espresso , and Sergio's guitar music on Friday and Saturday nights The pizzas are still very good, the menu expanded and tasty.

Our wood fired pizza was delicious. The place is so nice, a real surprise in the area. It was a nice place to stop before the Waipio Valley. Service was quite friendly!
