I was greeted at the door with “Welcome Mrs. Kobayashi”. Although not everyone was present in our party, the host sat us at our table and brought us bread and water as we waited for the rest of Family and Friends to arrive. Bread basket and water was refilled without asking and food was brought out within minutes of each other since we did not order all at once. Overall experience was outstanding and I will be going back with my office staff in the coming week.

Our waiter wasn't very friendly. We also felt rushed to leave. We prefer the waiter we had the last two times.

Also, for the price we pay it would be nice to have real cheese. CPK actually grates cheese from the block.

Another pet peeve is that they don't have raw brown sugar / sugar in the raw. Again, for the price we pay ...

Middle end-Italian food with lots of pasta dishes. Very efficient service. Good prices for expensive Oahu. Filled with a lot of locals and tourists. Great value.

Food was very tasty and everyone was happy with what they selected. I was a little disappointed that even though I had made a note on the reservation and that the greeter acknowledged that it was my wife's birthday the server failed to identify that or offer us a dessert menu. On top of that, when our wrapped up leftovers came back, one of them had a used bandage in the knot. The staff were very accommodating offering to make another dish for free which we declined but comped us for that dish anyway so that was appreciated. Our server, the person that wrapped our leftovers and the manager all apologized which was greatly appreciated. We opted to celebrate birthday dessert elsewhere as we felt the emphasis was on turning the table at that point.

Found this restaurant on Open Table, it was also recommended by some of the locals. It was a 15 minute Uber ride from Waikiki Beach. We arrived and it was strange walking into an Italian Restaurant with an all Hawaiian staff!

Service was superb, food was excellent. From appetizers to dessert, this place did not disappoint. It was so good, we returned 3 days later for dinner again.

Definitely a hidden gem and a great non tourist trap establishment to eat a quality meal.

No valet on duty during our lunch visit, but there was parking, even on a Sunday.

Feels like lunch prices are a bit more affordable than dinner.

Front desk very accommodating as I changed the reservation several times.

I enjoyed the ambiance of lunch as the dining room was not too crowded therefore not as noisy as dinner time.

Food was good, service was even better.

I would return! Nuff said.

We love❤ the food and the wait help is always there to make sure our water was filled or needed any refills on our drinks, if our food was cooked right. Plus, we were put in the last booth with pillows there! Near the entrance/ exit were the wait help go in and out. We thought we would be sitted on a table for two 😵😵- too small of a table.

I'm sorry I forgot our server's name. We were at a table at the edge of the bar and it was nice and quiet and our server was attentive but not intrusive. He made sure we got our drinks and appetizers first. He was excellent.

We went here for our Anniversary dinner with family. We haven’t been here in years but remember how great the food and service had always been.
I just want to say, everything was fabulous. The food was great and the service excellent.
For appetizers we had escargot, calamari, calamari legs, crab cakes and clams. We also had table-side prepared Caesar Salad.
For our main entrees we had the House Special seafood combination with tomato sauce, we also had the Special Seafood Combination with white garlic sauce, other members of our party had the Filet Mignon. They all said it was on-point. Be careful, portions for large size are definitely large.
For Dessert we enjoyed spumoni Ice Cream Pie and Spumoni Gelato.
Our special evening was made possible and well orchestrated by our great server Corey. We enjoyed an intimate relaxing dinner with family and did not feel like we were disrupted at all as food and drinks came and went hardly with us ever really noticing.
Truly a special experience at Assagio Bistro - Kahala.

Thank you Corey for a great Anniversary Dinner!

There is no children's menu. The waiter wasn't as attentive as I would have liked since it was a school night and kids had school the next day. The food was delivered to our table and there was no bacon on one of the meals when it was requested. The waiter didn't understand another order and how she wanted her fish cooked. It's been awhile since we last visited this restaurant. Although our orders were mixed up we hope to return.

The food was terrific. The bread could have been cut better so easier to pull apart. The waiter was on top of everything - refilling our water and drinks, clearing the table and asking if we wanted dessert.
