We’ve said this before, we’ll say it again: Mad Bene has some legit East Coast Italian.

The Kona kampachi alone—fresh-caught fish deboned, pan-roasted in brown butter and finished with marinated caper buds, berries and leaves straight from Italy—is worth the drive to O‘ahu’s West Side, even for the most timid of townies. But the Kapolei restaurant’s unparalleled taste comes from Chef Bao Tran’s laser-focused perfectionism for making everything fresh, authentic and from start to finish. Pizza dough slow fermented for 48 hours. Fresh, bronze-cut noodles. House-made sauces. Imported ingredients with flavors only Italy can produce.


Some might call it a mad obsession. But one bite of toothsome pappardelle Bolognese, Hot Honey pizza or Mrs. Tran’s perfect tiramisu, and we think you’ll feel the same.


Now through the entire month of March, join us on Instagram for #MadBeneMonday, where we’ll get to know what makes this Kapolei restaurant stand out.
