So I was pretty excited about heading back to this Restaurant after a 5 year hiatus. On my last trip to Waikiki, we ate here 3 times in 6 days, so you can imagine our excitement! But noooo!!! This time was so disappointing, and to be honest it could be easily pleased with better service and the wonderful quality of... More

Fresh Southern Sicilian dishes for lunch and dinner. The restaurant is located on the Waikiki Beachwalk. It is very convenient location for lunch after shipping or nice relaxing dinner. They have very moderated pricing for lunch around $15.00 and up.

Ate here while vacationing in Waikiki due to reviews had read. We did not have reservations, but only had to wait a few minutes before being seated. The restaurant is on 3 levels along popular Lewers Ave. We had soup & lasagna. The lasagna was very good & had a combination of beef & pork & a slightly richer tasting... More

Place was half empty. Walked in and was told they were booked. Judging by the looks I got from the two hostesses, one Japanese national and one caucasian, It was obvious that I was not the local customer that they wanted in their establishment. There were open double tables on the lanai. Walked by 20 minutes later and those tables... More

I was desperate to find this restaurant again, we had visited with my whole family 5 years ago and the restaurant name has such a connection with our life. My husband and I married in Taormina 13 years ago to this day. The restaurant obviously brings back great memories for me and my family. I sat there on my own... More

From the beginning the staff is nice enough and seem to be happy. The place is fairly seafood orientated for an Italian restaurant. The bread they serve is terrible. I had pasta with meat sauce that was kinda dry, but tasted ok. I have only been once, so maybe I just had experience below their normal service. I probably would... More

My wife and I were staying at the Outrigger Reef, and were undecided where to dine. We had walked past this restaurant nearby a number of times, and it had looked good. However, we hadn't made a booking. We looked at the menu in the window and liked what we saw. We went in to see if they had a... More

It was a recommendation and it was good. Had the black squid ink pasta with fruits of the sea. Loved it! Pasta was done perfectly and presentation along with ambience was perfect. Although I had a new waitress, she did great! I wouldn't normally suggest Italian, but you can't go wrong here.

Had no intention of going to an Italian restaurant in Hawaii. Boy are we glad we stopped in. Sicilian food is a bit different than Italian food and this place knows how to do it right. Homemade fresh pastas, fresh seafood and a huge wine list. Grilled squid was a great starter.Lasagna and the squid ink pasta with fruits of... More
