Considering that is this very difficult in the US to find an authentic Italian restaurant it is quite OK what they deliver here. All things we ordered were tasty and fairly priced. If you expect to have homemade pasta you also have to expect a higher price than here. Basically a very good alternative to other food and very friendly.... More

I have been to this restaurant twice in the last 3 days and I plan on going again tomorrow because it is so good. On our first visit, my son ordered spaghetti and meatballs and my daughter and I ordered the penne arrabiata. Because the meatballs take longer to cook but the bloke in charge wanted us to all have... More

Five for dinner. It was not memorable, food just o.k. combined with unfriendly and abrupt service, felt like they wanted to rush us in and out. Will not return.

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.
