Taormina Sicilian Cuisine
Our wait person, Hannah was very attentive and knew her menu.
Granted she, was the only server for that entire second floor.
We were there in August and now we were able to share this restaurant with
relatives all the way from Rhode Island.
See you again.
Great Italian food and wine. Fresh made pasta
Amazing food! Awesome service!
Amazing italian restaurant. Would have to be the best in waikiki and one of the best restaurants overall! Highly recommend.
Awesome food, people, and atmosphere!!
Fabulous cuisine, fresh seafood made with great care. Loved the squid ink pasta, cooked perfectly!
Attentive service and attention to detail. Will be back soon.
It's not the same. Food can be test better. It was just ok. However, staff is very attentive and friendly! Love the service!
Our server was Bella, she was very personable and attentitive . We had come for dinner 9/2/19 I don't remember our server's name she was courteous and we enjoyed our meal so much we decided to go back for lunch. We were glad we did because Bella made the return visit even better.
My husband loved the veal chop.
For him one of two meals only he really enjoyed during our two week stay.
Awesome service, exceptional quality, and great ambience.
Everything was crazy decadent and delicious. Leave your diet at the door! Hahahaha
We dine here to celebrate our Anniversary. All staff was very friendly from hostess, bartender, busboy etc. Our server very knowledgeable of the menu and wine selections when we asked for recommendations. She even had pictures of their food on a tablet for us to look at and help decide our choices. The gave us a free tiramisu dessert with happy anniversary written on it. Tiramisu is my favorite dessert and top 3 on Oahu. The chef is the same as Appetito on Kuhio. It gets busy so highly recommended making reservations.
Excellent eggplant caponata and pastas!
Excellent service. Knowledgeable wait staff. Reasonable prices. Delicious food.
Dining inside is refined and quiet, but al fresco is street side, noisy and in full view of passing tourists and “street people.”
Our server was rushing us, bring out the appetizers and salad courses at the same time she was opening the $245 bottle of wine. We had to ask her to take back the salad until we were finished with the appetizers and not have the entrees fired until we were done with the salad.
Food was good, but poor service really soured our experience.
Now one of my favorite place to eat at! The food was so delicious, I mean really delicious. Cant wait to come back and eat here again!
Service was great, prixe fixe menu for lunch was fabulous and Jen was the best!!!!
I would eat here again when I come back to Oahu. Phenomenal food and service
Enjoyed a very nice dinner at Taormina. Traditional Italian but with a Japanese take on the pasta, all three dishes we ordered were outstanding. Our server Akemi from Japan took care of us as did the rest of the staff. A great place for sophisticated Italian dishes in the heart of Waikiki.
As I made reservation through OpenTable, everything was going very smoothfully and no stress at all.
Staffs do welcomed us with friendry smiles.
I do visit this restaurant again within this year and will recommend Taormina to all my friends.

My honest opinion:
•Although friendly, the server (not the first time we visited) was somewhat rough in removing our plates. On another occasion, the server took away my guest's plate before he was finished.
•The ravioli appeared to be just a bowl of cheese (reason I never order it); very unappetizing.
•Although making reservations in advance, not the first time the hostess/manager was unable to accommodate us...table within the restaurant, etc.
Awesome chef's menu..
It was my husband’s birthday. They did everything they could to make it a fabulous celebration. And, they succeeded. Thank you!!
Always good food! Will be back for lunch again soon.
The place is nice but we were sitting facing the kitchen so was not very nice view. The tables are really close to each other, and you can hear the whole conversation the other table is having. I would try again but outside sitting next time. We did get free desert for our wedding anniversary and it was great. Overall I would give ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
