Pietro's Restaurant is one my sister's favorite restaurants. It's an Italian-Japanese fusion restaurant that serves pasta and pizza dishes with an Asian flair.
While we were growing up, this would be her restaurant choice to celebrate special occasions. I really enjoyed Pietro's when my family first started frequenting this restaurant back in the days when it was located across of McKinley High School. The chefs would experiment with appetizers and we would always receive small portions of the concoction of the day. Flash forward several years to Pietro's, now located on Kapiolani Blvd close to the Ala Moana Shopping Center. The prices have increased, smaller portions, and there are no free appetizers (and this was prior to the recession).
Anyways, liked I mentioned, this is one of my sister's favorite restaurants in Hawaii. She makes it a point to eat here at least once each time she visits Hawaii.
One of my favorite things about Pietro's are their dressings. They have four different Asian-inspired dressings that are yummy! You can buy these at local stores such as Long's and Don Quixote. My family cuts up cabbage really fine and we top it with the sesame miso dressing (our favorite flavor).
My sister would hands down recommend this restaurant to people. I think Pietro's serves tasty food, I just do not enjoy it as much as my sister.
