This was my 4th time here and the service and food is consistent. Fast service, especially if you are limited on time, and pizza dough is awesome. Guys in the kitchen welcomes you and waves good-bye, so that says alot for a customer to be recognized and feel appreciated.

Big Island Pizza is located just uphill from Costco in an industrial area. The pizza was very good with friendly service. Would definitely recommend.

very authentic taste. Enjoyed every bit of it. was glad they were open until 8pm when everything else wasnt. Even though pizzas were great. 12$ for a tiny 8" was a bit too much.

I've been hearing a lot of good things about this eatery. Many friends told me the fresh baked bread alone was worth the trip. I stopped yesterday for lunch to see to sample a few items.

So we stumbled upon this place as we were driving and looking for food. It came up on our phone app and decided to give it a shot. Its kind of hidden in an industrial area.

Despite the popularity of so-called "Hawaiian pizza", this isn't a speciality one normally thinks about in Hawaii. And, for the most part, that's fair game as there are many better options. But when you're in the mood for a slice, these guys serve up the real deal. The staff are friendly and helpful; grab a quick draft while they shape,... More

Pleasant spot to eat in or carry out. Terrific people behind the counter. Small selection of beers and wines. I recently designed my own pizza using prosciutto, artichokes, olives, and mushrooms with asiago cheese and felt transported to Naples.

The service was just about what you would expect at a pizza place, we were happy with it! You need to try the garlic knots, that were fantastic!! The pizza was decently priced and tasted pretty good... 4 of us shared 3 of their mediums and we had leftovers.
