While Kona is known more for its happy hour than anything else, the dinner menu does have some tricks up its sleeve. The basil pesto linguine features a generous portion of pasta studded with chicken, Andouille sausage and roasted tomatoes, all of which is smothered in a basil pesto cream sauce that has just the right amount of spice. When the linguine is gone, soak up the remaining sauce with the crispy garlic bread served on the side. $12, 750 S. Rampart Blvd., 547-5552.
