Not enough STARS to rateBest experience in the past 5 years!! Highly recommend this dining experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst Times a Charm!This was the first time my family and I went to dinner at Cafe Sistina and the food was delicious! Overall, it was a great experience, especially for a special occasion like Mother's Day and for a very reasonable price. However, keep in mind, the service is at a more leisurely pace...I believe you're meant to enjoy your company! If you're in a rush and just need a quick bite to eat, this may not be the place. The ambiance and classic italian dishes are greatly appreciated.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, beautiful decor!It's like dining in the Sistine Chapel. The food is delicious though I think their salads are a bit over pricey for what you get. Still, not much to complain about as you dine while surrounded these beautiful Italian paintings all hand drawn by the restaurant's owner.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMHeavenlyOne of the finest overall restaurant experiences we've had in Hawaii over the past 15 years.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMCafe Sistina is consistentlyCafe Sistina is consistently a high value place to eat.

Wonderful mix of traditional Italian and new, intersting dishes.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food and service,What a wonderful find on open table, as would never have gone without seeing this as an option for dinner.
On a Saturday night at 7:30pm the restaurant was extremely busy, with our server, also manager, bartendress, hostess, and a few other hats that i'm not aware of.
The restaurant should have better controls of seating times made available (dont be affraid to say, we have 745pm, 8pm, 815pm which do you prefer?, so guest don't have to wait until just before 8pm to get a glass of wine (had to flag a busboy down to request a couple of glasses of Prosecco), but after that all was great.
Food was great, from apps to desert, will definately go back again, just not at 730 on a Saturday Night...3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfection!Once again it was perfection... from the food to the service everything was great. Fresh ingredients, full flavors, great wine and wonderful and knowledgeable staff. This was our 3rd time and not our last. If you love Italian food and are looking for authenticity Cafe Sistina is a must. We highly recommend it!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service & food. AcousticsGreat service & food. Acoustics not great as it's a little noisy. Most impressed they found out it was my daughter's birthday and brought her a treat! We never told them, but they figured it out...3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThank you, Cafe Sistina!We enjoyed all of our apps (mushroom&polenta, escargot&polenta, roasted eggplant, salad). A couple of our entrees weren't as enjoyable because the veal and chicken were overcooked & dry. But my venison ragu & sister's boar sausage with gnocchi were AWESOME!! All the servers worked well together & provided wonderful service!
We can't wait to return for another wonderful meal at Cafe Sistina!2/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWhy I Love OpenTable...This was my first OpenTable reservation & we noticed it was SO much better than calling in your own reservation! Our table was set up for the exact amount of diners & the menus were waiting at our table. No other table had the same service! Everyone was very attentive. Our water/beverages were always filled & bread kept coming. We loved it!
We tried the Greca salad. Very yummy! I had the Spicy Tutto Mare on risotto. I always have to try any type of risotto offered. Nice & spicy & delicious. Sister had the Veal Barolo. Almost like a schnitzel. Very good sauce! Mom had the Eggplant Parmesan. Delicious!! We almost opted out of dessert but couldn't say no.
Blackberry cabernet sorbet & panna cotta were awesome!1/18/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific experiencethe eggplant parmigiana was excellent and my friends enjoyed the food:the best ever. Compliments.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
