They were very accommodating and service was great and quick. Food is always excellent. Highlights: Prosciutto and Arugula Salad, the crab pasta “Granchio”, and the Washu beef filet mignon topped with Foie Gras “Rossini” were amazing. The seasonal white peach desert was delicious as well!!! Thank you!

This is my favorite go to place for business and social lunches. The food and services is always excellent. Staff is very friendly, professional and give you the right amount of attention. Love the prosciutto pizza with mascarpone cheese. The daily prix fix meal is also good value.

The beef carpaccio was outstanding, and the truffle risotto was to die for--texture and flavor. That the sea bass was anticlimactic is no criticism--it just reflects my tastes. For me there is nothing you can do with a white fish that can compete with beef carpaccio, much less truffle risotto that matched the best I've ever had. And I still ate every bite. Good wine selection by the glass at reasonable prices. The portions of all three dishes were generous--especially the amount of truffles on the risotto. Nathan's service was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable--his wine recommendations for the first two dishes were spot on.
Not cheap, so perhaps for special occasions, but great vale for what you receive. Well worth the walk from Waikiki--but you may want to get a ride.

Really nice date night for us. Service was very attentive, almost too attentive though after a while I forgot which one was our waiter and got interrupted mid sentence a couple of times. Olive oil might have been a little bitter (or old), but the balsamic was nice and sweet. The food was excellent and had nice presentation. We had the chef daily special sea bass and the snow crab pasta. The tiramisu was V pleasant different with the milk & Frangelica foam. We’ll definitely go back.

Loved the quiet cozy dining area. Service was perfect. Japanese chef and food has a Japanese spin. People were dressed nicely and not too casual. Although saw one guy with flip flops and shorts.
Ordered:
cappuccino style sweet onion soup … very delicate and delicious soup
Prosciutto and arugula salad- was my favorite. Delicious, fresh and serves two!
Pancetta carbonara- very tasty and not oily or two buttery. Pancetta was very Yumm!
Bolognese (washo beef) - delicious with a bit of a chili bite
Tiramisu with macadamia nuts. - delicious. Best tiramisu ever.

Overall : highly recommended in terms of ambiance, service, price, quantity, food appearance and presentation, taste and quality.

Everything about the Bernini experience was refined. From the place settings (silverware to the HEPA-filtered air that was recirculated by two large units mixed among the dining room floor. The ingredients of the food were top-notch quality and prepared for both the palate and the eyes. Excellent presentation and kudos to the staff who were on top of any request my diners and I had. Thank you for a memorable evening Bernini!

A creative and artful twist to enhance the traditional. An impressive modern setting courteous servers. Moderate portions and pricing so you can try the desserts. A short walk through the line of luxury cars. I have seen the best.

Course lunch. Great value for $25. Service was friendly and attentive to the pace of the experience. Quality of food was exceptional for the price. If you want a bit of an upscale, relaxing lunch, try Bernini.

Bernini is a very good place for authentic Italian food. We love their pizzas. The crust is very thin. And we tried the affogato for the first time here. It was excellent after our meal. Two scoops of vanilla gelato and Lavazza espresso. YUM.

My family and I had a wonderful dinner at Bernini. From appetizers to dessert, everything was delicious. I was a little disappointed with my roasted 1/2 chicken entree as it was not as soft and juicy as I would have liked. All the other dishes we ordered and the wine were excellent. The service was very good, despite it being busy and we were well taken care of.

This was our first time back to Bernini in a long time and it was very worthwhile. We were a party of five and everyone enjoyed the food immensely and was impressed by the service. The taste of the dishes we ordered was uniformly excellent and the presentation was outstanding. The servers were well-informed about the food and gracious. It is expensive, but for special occasions, we think it isa winner.

Great little restaurant located a block away from Ala Moana shopping center. We came here on a whim because we were hungry and it had reservations available and it absolutely blew away our expectations. The service was great, the food was incredible, and the price was very reasonable for the dish. We both got the three course lunch menu with the snow crab pasta and it was delicious. We will absolutely be back to try the dinner menu.

The food and wine were really wonderful. The service was outstanding.

Our only complaint was all the flies buzzing around our glasses and food while we were dining, and the dining room was quite warm. We are not big fans of A/C and we get cold easily but it was overly warm.

It’s Hawaii so we are used to bugs but we don’t usually see them in upscale restaurants.

We will be back again for the excellent food and service. Hopefully no flies next time.
