With a beautiful setting, outstanding food, a remarkable wine list, and impeccable service, Dondero's is one of Kauai's best restaurants. The inlaid marble floors, ornate tile work, and Italianate murals that compose the elegant interior at this restaurant compete with a stunning ocean view. The elegant tasting menu features Italian dishes, including homemade pastas, risotto, and flatbread pizza. Try the ricotta gnocchi primavera; melt-in-your-mouth osso buco; seafood cioppino with scallops, mussels, fresh fish, lobster, and shrimp; or any of the outstanding pasta, meat, fish, and vegetarian choices. Many menu items are gluten-free, and a scoop of passion fruit or pineapple sorbetti is a refreshing ending to the meal. The food is beautifully executed, and the waitstaff earns special praise for thoughtful, personalized service. It's delightful to sit outside beneath twinkling lights.
