Although we have a reservation, they tried to seat us way in the back next to the restrooms past the many open tables in the front. The food drinks and service were fine.

Incredible small shrimp cocktail at $3.50 a piece. Burnt noodle dish and worst margarita pizza with zero fresh tomato or basil. HOWEVER, smoked salmon pizza with ikura and sour cream was very good

10歳の娘の誕生日に利用しました。
最初は外から見ると、バーという名前のように暗めの照明、大人な雰囲気で、子連れで行くところじゃないかも?と思いましたが、お店の人が全く気にしてない様子で入るとすぐハイチェア?と出してくれました。
1歳の子供連れでしたが、そこそこお店の中は賑やかなのであまり騒いでも気にしなくてすみ、子供用にぬりえを出してくれたりもしました。

お食事はボリュームがそこまで多くないように見えましたが、食べてみるとしっかりお腹にたまります。生ハムやチーズの盛り合わせ、シーザーサラダ、マルゲリータ、カニのフェットチーネ、エビのアヒージョを頼み、少し残してしまったのでドギーバッグで持ち帰りました。
アヒージョはこぼれちゃいそうと、別の容器にいれてラップでぐるぐる巻きにしてくれ助かりました。

予約時に誕生日であることを伝えていたら、最後にチョコケーキの上にアイスを乗せ、そこにロウソクを灯してhappy birthdayと文字が飾られたデザートを出してくれました。誕生日祝いだけど、デザートメニューをみると頼めそうなものがなかったので諦めていたので、特別なサービスに感激しました😆🎊

小学生レベルの英語で予約済みですと話すと
にこやかに案内してくれました、
日本人用のメニューも出してくれて、席についてからも聞き取れない部分は日本語混じりで対応してくれました。

ちょくちょくドリンク補充やお皿の様子を見に来てくれるので手厚いですが、TIPは一括でレシートに含まれていますので食後まで安心できます。

料理も温かくテーブルの様子を見ながら出してくれました。
マルゲリータとリブアイステーキ頼みましたがボリューム満点で味も素晴らしいです。

店員さんもとても優しい方でした。

A friend and I read an article in the Pacific Business News and were intrigued. We weren't disappointed.
The food was great, but what most stood out the most for us was the service. Our waiter Nicolas was very attentive and helpful with our wine choices. Other servers also stopped by to check on us as well. We've already recommended Appetito to some of our friends. We look forward to our next visit.

We needed a warm and relatively quiet spot for dinner with another couple. Requested a quieter seating area, and got a very nice table against a wall. Two of us ordered pizzas, they were delicious except mine wasn’t really hot (maybe the plates weren’t warmed? - that made the crust get a bit soggy). Pizza knives would have helped, a little challenging to cut with regular knives, but then we’ve only seen those in Europe (and at our house). Very nice selection, we had a Cotes de Rhône that paired well with the pizzas and pasta bolognese, the pasta got rave reviews. Would we return? Definitely - and unlike so many, we are not great fans of Italian cuisine, so I don’t say this just because any Italian restaurant would make us happy.

This restaurant is off the main drag in Waikiki. Nice open atmosphere with friendly staff. Good selection of wines from all over. The food selection was interesting but nothing crazy. We had 2 apps and a pizza all were very well prepared and tasty. Tip: if you get the white bean hummus and have hummus left save it and dip your pizza crust in it. This came from one of the servers, spot on it was delicious. Would I eat here again? Yes and I would direct people that way if they are looking for good wine and pizza, it has middle of the road prices for Waikiki.

This turned into a very good last minute choice. Not fancy and the staff runs the house well. Not thanks to a manager who only seemed interested in hanging near the two hostesses at the doorway. He did walk around with a prop raised brow, but never looked at the diners or asked how things were.
We also went for breakfast.... don't bother. Fairly skeleton staff in the morning hours. Uninspired menu and not a recommendation by me.
I would go again for dinner. Good pizza, great apps.

Delicious handcrafted pizzas. Pizza margherita and fungi we're enjoyed by our group. Nice wine list, friendly, knowledgeable servers. Loved watching the open pizza oven in action cooking those great pizzas. Nice ambiance, though a little noisy with so many people present. Make a reservation in this popular place, you won't regret it.

We loved the food and speed of service here! It was Valentine’s Day and were not aware that Happy Hour was wasn’t going to taste place, this would’ve been nice to know but nonetheless enjoyed our time! Their beer taps were also down so it bummed one of us out but we opted a bottle of wine instead. Will be back for Happy Hour on a typical dining day.

We went to Appetito for dinner on a Saturday night. It is a lively, but not excessively noisy, bar/restaurant with good energy and excellent service. Velma, our primary server, was friendly and attentive despite covering numerous tables. My wife ordered the margherita pizza and I had the roasted vegetable pizza. One pie is large enough to share, perhaps along with a salad, but small enough for one hungry person. We were famished and finished our pies, which had thin crust with the subtle taste of a pizza oven fueled by kiawe wood. The margherita pizza was exquisite in its simplicity, as it should be, and executed flawlessly. My roasted veggie pizza needed a bit more salt, but I solved that minor issue with a few sprinkles of parmesan. The mushrooms also were in short supply, but this was a minor issue. I asked for a side salad, but they serve only dinner salads; however, my pizza was covered with arugula, which filled the salad void, while adding an herbaceous and peppery element. My wife drank moscato, which she enjoyed enough to order a second glass. I had Aloha Blond Ale, which was light, yet tasty, and a perfect complement to the pizza. The wine and beer lists have something for everyone, although some of the wines seem a tad overpriced even by Waikiki standards. There's a lot to like about Appetito. We would return there if we lived on Oahu and recommend it to other visitors in Waikiki.

We had high hopes for Appetito, but found their pizzas rather bland and uninteresting, with very little herbs or spicing. Topping(s) were a thin layer, and when one portion was lifted, thin liquid would seep/drip from it, onto the serving platter. One of our foursome found it simpler to pinch the topping from the pizza and leave the crust on the plate.
Meatball appetizer delivered THREE meatballs.... to our table of four people. This seemed a bit of an unpleasant set-up, particularly when the waitress swiftly offered to bring a second plate of three meatballs. Wouldn't it be more sensible to make them a wee bit smaller, and put 4 on a plate?
Staff were fine, but due to the disappointing pizzas, we would not return.

The Caesar salad was singed!! I have never seen lettuce with burn marks before! The salami pizza was OK but the other pizza we ordered came cold to the table. The waitress brought it back to be warmed up but it still wasn’t hot. The ambiance was NOISY- impossible to have a conversation.
