Terra-cotta floors, hand-painted murals, and trompe l'oeil paintings give La Cascata an Italian villa flair, and picture windows offer dazzling views of Hanalei Bay. The menu emphasizes light sauces; plenty of pastas; plus fresh seafood, beef, and lamb. Savor smoked Hawaiian marlin with fresh asparagus and caviar or sample sautéed shrimp, lobster, clams, and scallops on pasta with a spicy tomato-fennel sauce. Top it off with an airy tiramisu or the day's sorbet selection. Reservations essential. AE, D, DC, MC, V. No lunch.
