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.

Service was friendly and attentive, but forgot a few things we ordered. But that happens. Food was good. Slightly higher in price die to the convenient location in waikiki. I enjoy coming here for breakfast and dinner alike.

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.

We had group of 27 , that seated in the back area which was perfect gave us some privacy and perfectly accommodated the group , the service was attentive and helpful.
With group this large there were minor issues with the food delivery timing , but overall it was a very pleasant evening and we'd definitely go back there

Italian restaurant with no garlic bread and no bruschetta.
Service was average, and value for money was poor.
$120 for a pizza, a pasta, chicken nuggets and 2 wines. Please!!!

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.

VERY disappointed the lasagna was taken off the menu. That was the best!
The rigatoni bolognese was a very good replacement though, - very tasty and filling.
An Italian bread offering would have been nice, not just the little pizza dough balls for $2 a serving.
The caprese salad was a bit disappointing as well, (kind of skimpy for the price).

Had a reservation but arrived 45 minutes early and asked if we could be seated earlier. Was told they will call us but never received a call as we tried to occupy our time walking.
We checked back at our reservation tine and saw many tables available. We were seated near the bar which was very noisy. Entrance to the restaurant is narrow with people standing around the bar you had to jockey around to enter the restaurant. Server was unenthusiastic and went through the motions of describing the menu. I had to request refilling my water several times because the water glasses are so small and the server did not check on our progress.
The food was good.
This us my second visit here. I was much more impressed the first time I tried this place because the server was enthusiastic about the food and made recommendations.

Place was good. We had the pizza which was good, not great, but that may have been because of our tastes. Saw another patron order the duck breast and that smelled absolutely delicious! Overall a great place with nice ambiance (booth looking out to the bustling street), good food and great service.
