I went to Prima last night. AMAZING!!!!!!! We sat at the counter watching the glow of the beautiful wood burning oven. As the embers flickered the aromas from the kitchen right in front of us was pure nirvana. We were able to witness one of the partners share his expertise to one of the staff while they assembled the amazing pizzas and other dishes. We were able to chat throughout the meal about their philosophy, sourcing of product and dynamic of their vision as a new business.

It was a banquet of a meal. Absolute perfection in every bite. I could spend hours describing each dish but then I wouldn't make it in time for "Streets of Asia with Morimoto & Friends" tonight. Just believe me when I tell you GO TO PRIMA sooner than later! At this early stage it is BYOB. Reservations are essential! Next to the Foodland.

I am so looking forward to trying this place. On my to do list after I get back from my trip to San Francisco.
Worst yet 6 of the foodies with us live in Kailua and were the most unhappy of all of us.
The dishes just didn't work. Prices were on the high side, portions on the small side. Wish we had been @ Mavro or Le Bistro. Went to Peppino's to p/u a Pizza after dinner.
