Pueo's Osteria in Waikoloa Village is a shocker. Can't say enough. Great vibe. Outstanding food. Make a res. Very popular. The veal is NYC class and their meatballs while unusual are literally mouthwatering. Husband in back of house cooking and wife in the front, paying attention to detail. They open at 5 and even during the weekdays they do a brisk business. I went with a friend last Thursday 5.10.18. We arrived around 9 and sat at the last two seats in the bar. The restaurant was 85-90% full. If you like locally sourced, farm to table food prepared by a talented chef this is a place to dine. I know this is a bold statement about a place that's been here a long time but I think it's a step up from Merriman's.
