Super tiny, cozy little restaurant run by a couple from Italy. Sabrina is the waitress and is so personable and remembered me after only eating there once before. Lots of choices including some homemade fresh pasta dishes. BYOB with no corkage fee, and the food is delicious!

Almost no Italian restaurants in Honolulu. No real traditional Italian pastas at all. And this one definitely is. A wife and a husband running the kitchen, with great homemade pastas, and desserts as well. And they are wonderful.

That was my husband's compliment to Sabrina, the owner of this hole-in-the wall restaurant in a corner center in Kaimuki neighborhood. We started with Caprese, fresh and tasty. I had house made ricotta and spinach ravioli in a perfect marinara sauce. Sabrina working the small dining room of 12 tables by herself but we did not have to wait.

Best Italian fine dining restaurant in Oahu. But don't let it discourage you -- they don't have a dress code and they allow bringing in of your own bottle of wine without corkage fee! All the antipasto we tried were excellent, from the very filling Fungo Portobella to the succulent Caprese and flavorful Proscuitto e Melone. For the pasta, we... More

Not easy to find good Italian food this Far from Italy (or NY), but Sabrina's does it. Couple from Italy put a lot of pride in their work. Squid ink sauce on frutti di mare is exquisite. It's located in the Kaimuki section of Honolulu and not easy to find. small restaurant atmosphere and must have reservations.

I think I am reviewing Sabrina's on Waialae Ave. TripA doesn't show an address. We went there last nite for beautiful mussels and veal marsala. Bring your own bottle.

This intimate restaurant has a warm atmosphere. It is out of the tourist areas so very relaxed. Service is very good with the owners being the chef and everything else. Pasta was fresh, as well as the tomato sauces. BYOB enabled us to bring our own selection. Dessert was also fresh, especially the cannoli. Better than cannoli in Boston. Parking... More
