Kailua: One Night at Prima

Pin It

During my trip to Honolulu for the Hawai'i Food and Wine Festival, one of the places I wanted to return to was Prima in Kailua for some modern Italian.  Only open for about a year, Prima is that casual place that has great food.

A few of us took a break from the festival food and stopped in for dinner.

 While looking over the menu
and specials board,
we enjoyed the fresh bread.

Specials tonight
Headcheese Adobo

Really good...

Sweetbread with Biscuits
(another special)

A variety of mushrooms

Pizza Time!
Prosciutto Rucola

Tomato, mozzarella, prosciutto, arugula, parmesan

A favorite of mine...


We had a few other dishes, including
Pappardelle - curry bolognese, fried curry leaves
Meatball Pizza

Dessert Time!
Their famous house made ice creams

jasmine, pineapple, lilikoi, and peanut butter.

The peanut butter was my favorite


Almond cake with figs


It was another great meal at Prima, my first visit was during lunch.  Hard to believe that last trip was only 4 months ago... Click Here to see my first visit.  This is a must visit place!

A few days after I got home from Hawaii, I sent friends from the Bay Area to Prima, they LOVED it!  They went back again for dinner and another night just for dessert.  I hate to admit, but they've been to Prima more times than I have in 4 months...


Special Thanks to Rebecca Pang for organizing the dinner,
and to Chef Lindsay Ozawa and the Prima Staff for a great evening!
