While lunch offers light fare — think salads and paninis — and dinner welcomes pizza, pasta and meat-centric dishes like Veal Chop ($55), Filet Mignon ($50) and Lamb Chop ($42), Il Lupino’s breakfast deserves equal amounts of the spotlight.

Among Il Lupino’s array of breakfast options are omelets with a side of roasted potatoes.

On the fruity side of things, there’s an açaí bowl ($18) with fresh berries, Kauai’s Anahola Granola, bananas and local honey.
