New York City is about 5,000 miles away, but if you’ve got the hankering for some authentic “Big Apple” taste right here in Hawaii, just hop into your vehicle and take a trip down to Yellow Cab Pizza Co.

After opening up its restaurant in January 2017 right across from the Costco in Iwilei, Yellow Cab Pizza Co. has been serving local diners with super tasty options from a menu that includes appetizers, such as garlic Parmesan, barbecue and hot wings, soups, delicious salads, classic pasta and seafood dishes, desserts, and perhaps most of all, a fantastic selection of New York-style pizzas that would satisfy any pizza aficionado.

At Yellow Cab, every handmade pizza starts off with a crust that is crisp and delicately charred on the bottom, but still delectably chewy in the middle and slightly gooey on top.

Each pizza is then topped off with a unique blend of the freshest and high-quality toppings that you just can’t get anywhere else.

Aglio Olio Chicken Pasta ($8.95)

Examples of Yellow Cab’s special and fun takes on pizza are Barbeque Chicken, Hawaiian, New York’s Finest, Roasted Garlic & Shrimp and, of course, The Big Apple, which is stacked with fresh apples and savory smoked bacon.

Stop by or order online via its website or order to go though Bite Squad, Grubhub and Uber Eats.


If you want to grab a bite to eat, but want to remain light on your toes, Yellow Cab Pizza Co. has a couple of tantalizing treats you won’t want to miss.

The Garden Special pizza ($8.95 for 10-inch, $12.95 for 14-inch and $16.95 for 18-inch) is a delightful all-veggie supreme that is loaded with fresh tomatoes, olives, fresh button mushrooms, onions and bell peppers.

Another refreshing fare that won’t weigh you down is Aglio Olio Chicken Pasta ($8.95). This yummy dish is a light and tasty pasta recipe with garlic, olive oil, basil and sun-dried tomatoes. Add anchovies if you wish for just a dollar more.

Customers wanting to get a taste of these delightful meals or other Yellow Cab Pizza creations can stop by the eatery any day of the week. The restaurant is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
