    The service was wonderful. Very quick and very friendly. The food however left so much to be desired. The red sauce tasted burned, the Arrabiata pasta was very unrefined.

    This was pretty average Italian food. The service was nice and it was convenient if you're staying at the Hilton. We enjoyed the chicken parm but the shrimp scampi was pretty bland.

    I had a lovely dining experience at Fresco. Overall 5 stars for sure! I made a reservation since it was a Saturday night but they weren't completely busy. I was promptly seated, given water and Alvin shared the specials with me. They had a prix fixe option which included a starter caesar salad, your choice from the pasta menu. And tiramisu for dessert, so I opted for that - it was a bargain if you're going to do all three anyway. The caesar salad was crispy, delicious and nice and garlicky. Just how I like it! I opted for the fettucine bolognese which was a perfect sized portion, had lots of hearty sauce, and noodles cooked just to al dente tenderness. Delicious. The tiramisu was the perfect end to this meal - light and fluffy but rich and creamy at the same time. Would definitely recommend Fresco and Alvin as a server in particular. Yum!

    Great food and wonderful service. Seated quickly and restaurant sits above the busy market. Meaning, it’s a great stop after a day of shopping and nearby to most hotels on Waikiki.

    Food was dreadful, everything was from a jar with no taste. Could not cater for one of our party that had an allergy as everything was ready made. Waiter Brooke was very helpful and did his best but kitchen let him down. They also had the cheek to charge a kitchen fee which was absolutely outrageous as they did nothing for it. Definitely do NOT Recommend going here.

    Unfortunately we had high expectations for this place, but it was sub par. Our food came out in minutes, which clued us in that it was not being made as orders came in. There was nothing special about the flavor of the three dishes we had, which were the bolognese, spaghetti and meatballs and the Lasagna. I would not recommend this restaurant.

    Appreciated the ability to get outside seating, though it was more noisy. The crowds in the area were to be expected, however the music blaring through the speakers was what was most intrusive. We were 10 minutes early so had to wait; they seated us exactly on time. Service was attentive and prompt. Food was good -- pasta al dente, brussel sprouts delicious! Prices were exceptionally reasonable for Waikiki.

    EXCELLENT FOOD!!! We both enjoyed very much the selections we made. We intentionally sat on the lagoon side of the restaurant; unfortunately, the Hilton chose to leave the door to the service garage across the street open. The view my wife had was of the laundry wagon and other service equipment. She didn't want to look into the sun; otherwise, I would have swapped with her. The manager was very gracious and said he was going to talk with the Hilton about closing the doors as they're supposed to do.

    Based on the reviews I read I expected the food to be Italian good. Big disappointment. We were a party of 9. Some ordered steaks and some of us ordered a asta dish. The steak eaters did not complain. We pasta eaters did. Their special was spaghetti and meat balls. Who can get that wrong. This plce can. Pasta was overcooked and the sauce was tasteless. Even the cheese grated over it could not save it. Chef Boyardee could have. Although the servers were courteous and efficient what’s with wearing face masks?! Could not understand what they were saying. My wife peeked into the kitchen asking if there were any Italian cooks in there. NO answer. It seemed obvious from the decor that this must have been a Chinese restaurant converted to “Italian”. Hilton can do better. I could have done better for the $500+ I spent there.

    We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food & service. Beware there are no longer table clothes at the restaurant so it is a bit more casual that it appears in some photos. It is primarily tourist and hotel guests so the dress is fairly casual. Our waiter Erick was very professional and the manager Jerry stopped by twice and was very engaging. The mushroom risotto was the best dish of the night. Self parking is validated and convenient. Overall a very nice experience.

    I saw some awful reviews before eating here but decided to give it a chance anyway and honestly, I don’t see why they were so horrible. Food was great, our server was one of the most attentive I’ve ever had. My only complaint is that the restaurant does not really look like the pictures I saw online. I was looking forward to having a meal a little bit more dressy than casual and was looking forward to the white table cloths and decorated tables. The photos online are Very Misleading and I really think they should update this so as not to falsely advertise.

    Food and staff were great but the table settings and ambiance were so disappointing. The pictures showed white table cloths but the actual setting is bare and chipped tables. My chair was facing an awful wall. I made the reservation way ahead asking for the best available seats and I mentioned a special occasion to celebrate. See my pictures.
