A San Francisco native comes to the tropics, and the result is this charming neighborhood eatery. It's just the sort of place that you find all over San Francisco or Miami Beach. However, in Honolulu it's a bit of an anomaly. Simple, perfectly-prepared Northern Italian cuisine is a delight. Home-made pastas and kiawe-grilled meats are all delicious. Vegetarians can order the kiawe-grilled vegetables. Cafe 8 1/2 has become a lunch time staple for the locals here.
