By Jacqui Wedewer

I can talk about Sola all day because it does fusion so well. They create new and innovative tastes while keeping true to Hawaiian flavors. These flavors create a whirlwind in your mouth, making you want more ith every bite.  The prices are not extravengent either.  They are not cheap, but are completley afordable for a date night.  Aside from their entrees, they have a dessert menu that has a terrific variety, and no matter what you choose, you get a little taste of Hawaii with every lick, bite, or sip. Besides having stellar food, you can tell they really care about their customers.

Calo Ristorante

Calo Ristorante offers a delicious menu of authentic Italian dishes. You will find steaks that rival the best steak houses in town and plentiful plates of seafood pastas. Handcrafted pan, stuffed, and thin crust pizzas are much loved by the regulars. The restaurant is comfortable and the service is great.


Mediterranean fare is served at this family run restaurant. A fusion of Greek, Italian, even Indian flavors will delight your palette.
