This steady presence in the South Kona dining scene is a friendly, white-tablecloth establishment in a hole-in-the-wall location next to a liquor store on the mountain (mauka) side of Highway 11. The restaurant's husband-and-wife owners prepare homemade pastas and focaccia daily. Specials are always delicious and usually include lasagna, focaccia, and risotto. The homemade herb-cheese ravioli is rich and savory, and even the salad options are a notch above, with ingredients such as candied macadamia nuts, roasted beets, and sautéed haricots verts. Homemade desserts are worth saving room for, particularly the banana-rum flambé.

We rarely repeat a restaurant while on vacation because it is always fun to try someplace new. But, we loved Mi's so much that we ate there twice. The food is outstanding and the owners are wonderful. The pasta is homemade and fabulous. The tiramisu is the best I've ever had.
