My wife and I had two meals here, one breakfast and one lunch--both were interesting and a bit different from standard Italian (a fruit crepe for breakfast; an avacado/grapefruit/shrimp salad for lunch. On the street so good for people watching but not good for quiet dining. Long lines for dinner kept us from trying it then.

This is a nice restaurant near shopping areas. Their pastas are not overcooked and the salads are fresh. I would recommend making a reservation if you don't want to wait because there is always a line of Japanese tourists outside...must be in their guide book :)

This has to be one of my favourite restaurants in Waikiki. Great Italian dishes with a small cosy feel away from the hustle and bustle of the main strip. Slightly on the more expensive side but definitely worth it.

Delicious pasta to prepare for the Honolulu marathon. Attentive service, delicious focaccia bread and home made sauces. Make a reservation because this is a small place. Would return again!

Great Italian restaurant tucked into a side street right off Waikiki. Prices are up a bit.. but the food and service is worth it. From the pizza, to the lobster bisque to the Caprese.....it was all top notch. VERY attentive service. It was a busy night and they still worked us in right away. Recommend for a special night.

The queues for a table is an indication of the quality of the food,the service, and the ambience. The menu range is as expected, the price is the same. We obtained a table by going early - the waiters had just started then too! It is high class Italian food.

In November we walked from Embassy Suites to this nearby restaurant after a long day of touring. We were going to go to the one on Kalakaua Ave but too tired to walk that far as it was rated higher on Trip Advisor. We had a nice dinner of spaghetti & meatballs. It was average tasting & convenient. Nothing highly... More

Amazing pasta and pizza with a few vegetarian options. Crafty cocktails with a lot of thought put into them. The bread was incredible. Big portions. Amazing service!

Camila was my friendly, happy & knowledgable waitress from Brazil. I ordered crepes two breakfasts in a row-both the salmon and panecetta. Wish I was staying 5 more days to try them all-yes, they're THAT delicious. I am told the mushroom risotto prepared @ the table is a work of art--a very large portion to be shared priced at $30....

Good food (the Lasagna is HUGE). My only gripe is they don't do reservations past 5:15pm and after that, there is a long queue waiting for tables. A testament to how popular the restaurant is, especially with Japanese tourists. Pricey wines and tables are extremely close to one another. But if you want Italian, this is pretty authentic.
