It's always nice when customers leave a restaurant happy and even say thanks for a great meal. But what happened Friday night at Pietro's Pizza Kauai went beyond the usual show of appreciation for a pie done well. Maria Lopez, a professional opera singer on her honeymoon on Kauai, stood up after finishing dinner.
"I haven't had pizza this good since I left Italy," she said. "I'm so happy, I'd like to thank you. Can I thank you with a song?" Of course, said owner Tom Iannucci. For the next four or five minutes, Lopez delivered an aria, in Italian, loud and beautiful.
