The food was spectacular and in large portions. All of the pasta was homemade, and you could tell! The staff was extremely knowledgeable about the menu options and helped guide us to the best options! The service was also spectacular! Our waitress was very attentive and checked in frequently to refill drinks and ask how we were doing. Overall a great restaurant and experience!

When we are not wanting to cook at home, Pueo's is our go to. We have always had excellent service, a good meal and delicious drinks. We highly appreciate the custom made pizzas.

The waitress could have warned us about the meals we ordered. It was just me and my husband, we each ordered a entrée a piece. Needless to say this was enough food for a family. We’re just traveling here in vacation so all this food has gone to waste. So the food is good but if you are here on vacation you might want to ask about the portions and if can feed your family. Just saying. Other then that it was good.

Let me first say this was not our first dinner at Pueo. We arrived on time for a reservation and was seated 20 minutes past that time. The physical distancing and other Covid restrictions in Hawaii are very strict. However the tables are arranged perhaps three to four feet apart with a potted plant between the tables. Another 20 minutes passed and the waitress arrived to take the dinner order having never brought a menu. A little grumbling and returned with a single, previously used paper menu for the two of us. We ordered drinks and before they arrived the waitress once again returned to take the dinner order and asked to return after the drinks arrived. We ordered the focaccia bread, two orders of the caprese salads, the Bolognese and the Puttanesca.
The focaccia was a cross between corn bread and a biscuit. The caprese was excellent with very fresh and flavorful tomatoes and mozzarella. The bolognese was flavorful however the meat in it was the consistency of small meatballs. The puttanesca was flavorful however swimming in olive oil and the pasta was limp and starchy.
The check was brought promptly without any mention of after dinner drinks or dessert which was disappointing as a favorite, limoncello was served at the next table.
Pueo’s Ostria is capable of much better.
