This sits on very busy Lewers Road-the decoration, menu, service all were terrific! The quality of food was really great-I would give it a 5* if it had a view! We definitely will go back next winter-this will be part of our rotation!

Beautiful restaurant with great service. We went there for my birthday and they even gave me a free dessert that was delicious and gorgeously decorated. The highlight though was my baked lasagna....so creamy, great flavor and the parmasan crusted top was perfect. BEST EVER.

Average food, average service, expensive and there's scaffolding around the building. This used to be a nice romantic restaurant. Now it's just awful. Don't bother going.

I'm not with the restaurant, just somebody who enjoyed lunch there a month ago. But we were casually dressed, and we were very graciously served. In fact,everything in Honolulu seems to be casual.

Maybe 15 minute walk It's just a couple of blocks past the Royal Hawaiian. Or 5 minutes by uber (if you have a rental car you'll probably spend more time parking than if you walk from your hotel!)

Description
Inspired by authentic Sicilian recipes from the kitchens of Southern Italy's seaside town of Taormina, Chef Hiroyuki Mimura pairs fresh pastas with the highest quality seafoods and meats. Unspoiled by heavy sauces, Sicilian-style pastas are dressed in pure, extra virgin olive oil. Fresh vegetables, lightly grilled fresh local fish, and lamb seasoned with herbs offer diners a healthy range of options.Featured dishes include fresh Fettucine Carbonara finished with tableside Truffle service, grilled Lamb Chops "Palermo" and Veal "Siciliana." Taormina's specialty dish is Uni Pasta (Sea Urchin), a delicacy enjoyed in Japan and Italy. Italian espressos compliment Dolci (dessert) selections of house made desserts.
