The staff was very attentive and polite. Very good service but the main course took awhile to come out because according to the waiter, they got swamped.

Assaggio Bistro-Kahala has come to be our "go to" restaurant when we'd like to go somewhere nice without spending a fortune. It is moderately priced and the food is always very good to excellent.

The food was cold. The sausage for the pasta was microwaved and cold, the escargot was cold. I had asked for a sizzling plate for the steak which the server said ok not a problem, when meal delivered they didn’t bring the plate I asked for it again and got a regular plate when the server came around to check on us I asked him again about the sizzling plate and that’s when he decides to tell me they don’t have it. Why wouldn’t you say that from the beginning.

The best restaurant indeed. It was great to have Cesar salad made at the table. So many restaurants don’t offer that anymore.

Calamari appetizer was tender but not very flavorful. We ordered the fish of the day, monchong - excellent! Tiramisu was ok, again a bit bland.
Lunch so it was quiet and perhaps that's why the waiter didn't seem that attentive; he asked if we wanted a drink but failed to provide a wine list until we asked for one.

Food portions generous but prefer smaller portions and mor interesting seasoning and flavors. Fairly bland, heavy on olive oil, butter.

Assagio's food in Kahala doesn't tastes a good as it once did. Ordered a New York steak with vegetables and vegetables were just thrown on the steak making the dish runny. Wife gave me have shrimp from the seafood combination and shrimp was very salty and didn't eat it.

absolutely awlful experience. We where given 3 courses in the space of 35mins. No break inbetween and food basically just thrown at us so they could get rid of us quick not only that the food quality was disgusting. I had the steak and prawns and I couldn’t taste the difference between the steaks and the prawns all covered in grease and the pasta tasted as though it had been sat in water for ages to the point where it goes all slimey. Thankfully this was the only digistinh restaurant we visited while in Hawaii.

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.
