We had been here for my bday. Had to push the reservation as we were running late and they were very accommodating.

Chi was our waitress and she is absolutely amazing. She asked us what we would prefer and checked upon any allergies. We would say Chi was one of the reason we liked this place more.

PS : Get a table outside , inside it is bit noisy.

This is wonderful authentic Italian Food prepared and presented in the best way. Lobster Bisque was outstanding as were the pasta and pizza. A very fine dining experience all the way around. You will NOT be disappointed, however reservations are a must as we have always seen many turned away. We make it a point to dine with them every time we are in Honolulu.

Great Italian restaurant, not too many of those in Hawaii. The assortment of ham was very good, as was the calamari nice and crispy. We shared the pasta bolognese which was rich and tasty. We also shared the branzino (sea bass) the skin was crispy and meat was soft and tender. Finish off with illy espresso and cappuccino. Very nice dinner, we were very satisfied.

Very delicious food. We simply had two entrees—lasagna and meat lovers pizza. Both were very flavorful and addictively yummy. Fresh ingredients and fresh from the oven, severed photo ready. The staff was super friendly too. Prices for salads seemed steep so didn’t have that. Table bread was fresh and warm but needed more oil when served. Cocktail and wine were nice as well. They even brought us a free dessert with Happy Anniversary written in chocolate:-)

First of all, the COVID-19 protocols really made dining there feel secure. Hawaii health pass was checked and they temperature checked everyone. Once seated, our waiter Trevor really made our dining experience memorable by being kind and professional and attentive, despite a party of 12 that was seated in his section. The food was really very good - uni pasta definitely a treat as was the bolognese. I really have to give kudos to their garde manger tho because the simple insalata mista was anything but simple. The lettuce was fresh and crispy, green beans, cauliflower and broccoli florets were all blanched and tender, and the vinaigrette was lightly applied and amplified the salad. A good salad like that is hard to find and very much appreciated. Desserts, Tiramisu and sorbet were OK - could definitely be improved but still OK.
Also will mention the location- lots of tables outside on a sidewalk just off the main street so it’s quiet with not a constant stream of passersby. With the twinkling lights and umbrellas it almost felt like Itally!

When we arrived at this restaurant, there are many vacant tables with good view in outside, however firstly a waitress gave us a table inside with no view. Then we told her there were so many vacant tables, but the waitress did not give us better table.
Finally I told their manager why you did not gave us outside table even if there were many vacant ones. Then they gave us a good table with nice view.
I have confused why they did not willing to give us better table.

We brought our cousin's to dinner for their 40th anniversary and it was a wonderful experience and one they were very happy with. We were warmly greeted by the hostess and seated outside at a table that showed the inside as well as the view of the beach. After ordering drinks, which were quite good, we decided to share appetizers as well as entrees. Our server, Thuy An was very helpful and her suggestions were spot on. The Bagna Cauda was very good but the Arancini Siciliani was the best. Little
mozzarella risotto croquettes with a tangy sauce. That will make us return over and over again! Be sure and try the mushroom Risotto finished in the wheel of cheese. very good! The service was soo good and when we left every wait staff, busser, and the hosts thanked us for coming. Very nice

We were seated at a table right at the sidewalk. People walking past are only a couple of feet away. Traffic noise, pigeons, pedestrians and a view of the street. I don’t think we’ll be back. Service by everyone besides our main server was great. Food is good but not good enough to justify the horrible ambiance.

OK. Food tasted great. Presentation is unbalanced, maybe because the staff seems inexperienced. For the money, the ambience is terrible. Wine list needs to be overhauled. If anyone is paying $436 for the most expensive bottle of red wine on the winelist he or she has too much money and not enough taste to be drinking it here.
And it's pronounced Von- GO-lay.

Ciao.

Staff was very attentive especially to my shrimp allergy. Staff checked in regularly to make sure food and service were exceptional. We loved the pizza carbonara and I’m never disappointed with their uni pasta. My we also got the meat sauce pasta but didn’t enjoy as much. We felt it was on the saltier side. Overall we loved the food and the staff. High recommended and we will be back. It is also best to made reservations.

Arancino di Mare impressed us! Upon getting seated, they have small paper bags to put your masks in. It seems like a small gesture, but it's made the dining experience memorable for us. The food came out very quickly even though it was a busy night. Food was delicious. They're known for their uni pasta and it did not disappoint! It was a favorite at the table. Ended off the night with some tiramisu and it was amazing! Great place to celebrate or have date night. We'll be back soon!
