With seven in our group this restaurant was able to provide something for everyone's taste. Meals were well priced and a generous size. We were sat near the sports bar on the upper level which can be a little noisy, but for the sports fan there are TV's surrounding the room so you won't miss a thing. Staff and service... More

Went for supper last night. Was very busy and one larger group ahead seemed to paralyze the front desk in getting them seated. Once we were seated (two of us) it took the waitress a long time to take our order then to deliver our drinks then salads. I have to say the greatest disappointment was the pastrami. I found...

This restaurant is located at he other end of Kalakaua near the Waikiki beach walk. Either take a taxi or walk. We walked from Waikiki Marriott near Kushiro beach. It takes about 30 minutes. So nice to enjoy the warm weather, that you don't mind walking most places. They have a vary large varied menu with so many types of... More

This place has a varied menu. We ate here once and then ordered a pizza to go which worked great. My daughter had the french dip and she said it was the best she's tasted. My husband enjoyed the cobb salad.

We stopped here for dinner because there was no wait for a table. That should've clued me into the very average food that was about to be served. Most plates average just below $20. There are many other options along Lewers St. you can safely skip this one.

I didn't really like the menu and I thought it was just another fast food place but I was pleasantly surprised by Giovanni Pastrami on Lewers St in Waikiki. As I was staying down that end of Waikiki I'd best describe this place as being great for tired travellers with families who don't want to walk far or wait long.... More

Stopped in on a rainy afternoon! I really loved the chicken noodle soup! I also had the Hawaiian hot dog, however it was not very hot and did not taste special.

We ate here for lunch and it was awesome. They have a wide assortment of sandwiches that were packed full of meat. The price was reasonable for the area. We also had pizza that was very good. The Pastrami sandwiches are what I would imagine from an Italian eatery in New York CIty.

We dined in at this place last night and it was awesome. Great service and great food - and no waiting in a town that seems to thrive on queues. We had pizza, pasta and garlic twists - all fantastic! It was so good that we went back again tonight however couldn't get a table (Saturday night) so ordered delivery... More

My husband has been to Hawaii a couple times and this spot is always on his list. This was my 1st trip to Hawaii and this restaurant. I ordered the Bolognaese pasts,which I tried in Italy, and it was the same at both locations. My stepson had the fettuccine Alfredo and loved it. I loved the music and great service.... More
