This restaurant is located off the beaten path on kokohead so locals favor this area. I was with a business client and her family. I had the vegetarian lasagna which was ok. They ordered the clam linguini special and two other dishes. The dessert now that was GOOD! I ordered the 3 layer cake and they split the mudd pie.... More

After leaving the theater, 6 of us decided to have Italian food at Verbano's Koko Head Honolulu restaurant. We were seated in an almost empty room at the back of the restaurant near the restrooms. The atmosphere was definetly not a warm Italian feel. Candles on the tables were not lit, no table cloths or flowers. Ordered a bottle of... More

I'm not going back. I ordered Puttanesca and had it delivered to my house. Had I eaten at the restaurant, I would have returned it to the kitchen. The restaurant forgot to use marina sauce and olives. There was a strong anchovy taste, mainly because the balancing ingredients were missing. Somehow chicken got added to the mix and it was...

We received delivery via 941 Dine from Verbano. The food was very good. The packaging of some of it left something to be desired. There was some warm, mediocre bread in a bag - ok so far but in the very same bag was butter!, napkins!, and plastic utensils. So, of course the butter melted and made a mess of... More

Very nice menu that is reasonably priced. Had the Clams Casino and baked seafood dishes, simply yummy, hard to believe that they only charge approximately $8 for an appetizer and $11 for an entrée (the steak dishes cost more, but not much). Highly recommend the vegetable/mushroom side-dish, so tasty. The restaurant is small and can be noisy as the tables... More

No atmosphere. It's like eating in a 60's diner in a podunk town in the hill country. A Japanese rendition of what they think Americans like when they go out for Italian. You know, I don't want to be mean. But you know you're in trouble when there's Japanese pasta on an Italian menu. I'm just sayin'...

This is our go-to place on a weekday evening when we don't feel like dealing with the CPK mess. It's nice and quiet and they always have available seating at 5pm when we eat. My favorite dish is the chicken saltimboca. Can't comment on anything else because I always get the same dish every single time. This is a family... More

Good Italian food, well prepared. Family run, friendly and helpful. Get away from the downtown and upscale Italian with its lobster ravioli, etc., and have a good italian meal.
