While enjoying the rich flavored kitchen of Pizzetta restaurant, either outside on their lanai, or inside the specious open side indoors, you can indulge in some of their various items from cocktails, wine, beer or non-alcoholic beverages such as smoothies ($5), Italian sodas ($4) and Peligrino ($3.25).
The Mango Mojito (Bacardi rum, mango Puree, lime juice, fresh mint, club soda ($8.50) was delicious and refreshing. The restaurant prides itself with its Mai Tai (a perfect blend of Hawaiian fruit juices, Orgeat, light rum and dark rum float ($8, grande or 26 oz., $10.50). During their daily happy hour from 3 to 5:30 p.m., you can get Mai Tai, margarita’s, martini’s for $4, selected Kona Brewing beers, $3, Budweiser and Bud Light, $1.75; Corona and Peroni, $2.50.
Wine lover? Even though owner Caterina Shyne doesn’t consider herself a wine connoisseur, she said her son John Halter is, and has been responsible for the selections. From sparkling to different kinds of red and white wine, and origins such as Chile, California, Argentina, Oregon, Washington and, naturally, Italy, the list could satisfy any preference.
The California Mark West Pinot Noir ($6.95, $26) I had with dinner was a thick red wine that went perfectly with the meat in the dishes. If you prefer something more light and fun, the Strawberry Mango White Sangria ($8) and the Hibiscus Pomegranate Red Sangria ($8) would be the way to go.
