Taormina Sicilian Cuisine
Exceeded expectations. Delicious birthday surprise was much appreciated.
Went to taormina for day after Valentine's Day and they still offered special meal. As always the food was outstanding, service five star and the staff made us feel welcome.
This has become one of my favorite restaurants.
Service and food was great! Definitely will be back!
Excellent service and ambiance, we did prix fixe (4 course and 5 course), most was excellent, but fish (chosen in the 5 course meal) was not as tasty as we have had at other restaurants in Hawaii. Pastas were superb and the filet mignon delicious. We wished that tiramisu was one of the choices for dessert but the ones we got (liliko'i sherbet and pistacio mousse) were very good.
Our first time at taormina and it was great! Customer service abounds throughout the entire meal. Sicilian food was good and no comparison to american sicilian food. Kudos to the chef and homemade tiramisu was delish!!
Will be coming back.
Service and food is perfect but 不味い水道水と切れないナイフにはがっかり。フィレ肉が悪いのかナイフが悪いのか悩んでいたら、アスパラガスでさえ、すーって切れないほどの切れ味。でも、メインの料理もサービスも良かったので気にならないです。
My husband and I dined this last week and we truly enjoyed the 5 course meal with drink pairing. Thanks for the delicious experience in Hawaii!
Taormina is a family favorite for special nights out whenever we are in Waikiki. The management and staff provide a personal and exceptionally high level of service each and every time we walk through the door. We are never disappointed with the delicious and inventive dishes on the menu and the entire team never fails to make us feel special. We always get an order of the lasagne to share, which is a particularly rich and decadent take on what is normally not a noteworthy selection on most Italian menus. There’s usually a one of a kind item we can’t resist, which was a sumptuous abalone on the half shell this trip-amazing! We can’t wait for our next visit~
Not impressed with the taste of their food. My wife has clams & spaghetti and I has Spaghetti Bolognese. wife's meal was tasteless, could tell they did not use fresh garlic. I can't ever remember have a Bolognese that was brown versus red. Taste was so-so.
Joe our waiter was very professional and courteous. Food presentation was excellent.
Excellent and consistent restaurant that we visit every time we are in Honolulu. My caprese was very good so was the snapper like fish. Jenn our server was nice and courteous. Great Italian place.
One of my favorite restaurants in Waikiki. Nice ambience, great food.
The restaurant was highly recommended and completely lived up to it. Great food, attentive but not intrusive staff.
Very very delicious and good service.
I want to visit soon.
The food is delicious, beautifully presented, and the right size (enough for a hungry adult).
I had the lasagna, and my wife had the grilled chicken. We both recommend those.
I don’t remember having ever had a lasagna this good in my entire life.
The price is right too.
I plan to return soon.
Excellent food, service and ambiance but we were disappointed because of a business group conducting their business meeting very loudly right next our table and we could not here ourselves talking to each other. They need to put this kind of group in their own separate area. We will have to talk to the restaurant next time if we make reservations in the future.This I was our third visit there and were not too happy.
We will have to think about it next time .
Would like to have you share this comments with the restaurant.
The food was excellent, but the sevice was poor. The hostess did not personally escort us to our table, and the waitress did not explain the fact that the uni pasta and lamb had an extra cost tied in. Both the waitress and manager stated it was self explanatory and only when I explained my position to the manager did he agree to take of the added cost of the pasta (but not the lamb). Since it’s dark in the restaurant it was not easy to notice the added costs. Coincidentally, the dinner party to the right and left of me had issueswith their service. The party to the right of me was upset because they were not seated, and had to wait, but saw me sit down as soon as I came in. Both of us had the same dinner time reservation.
Not a good experience at all.
Great food and great service. The seafood bruschetta and risotto was incredible
Everything was perfect. They're the perfect balance of classy and comfortable. I'm going back again for more!
You need to change your menu ... it has been the same for years
Excellent place to celebrate special occasions. Good Food and Awesome customer service👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Food and service were great--truly authentic Sicilian cuisine. Ordered wine by the glass (one white and one red) which was a mistake. Both were skanky.
Gave our reservation away after less than 20min. We had a child and a baby so they were helpful in accommodating us after we were less than impressed that our reservation was given away. We are told they would need the table in one hour which was fine with us except the food took a long time to come out so we had to quickly eat. The food was very average
The service was outstanding
Our Gabrielle gave us a super service
We did not expect a good Italian Honolulu but this one betrayed us
We dined on New Year's Day, where only option was 5 course tasting menu. Very crowded downstairs and really tiny waiting area, so we were eased to have been seated upstairs where things were a bit calmer. The food was generally good and attractively presented. Servings were small, which was okay as there were 5 courses. Best course was the bucatini with pancetta and truffles. The steak was cooked as requested and tasty. The lobster and scallop cold salad was interesting and good. Salmon starter and whipped dessert were okay. Server was friendly and attentive, but the process seemed a bit rushed, probably because the first dishes were pre-done. Overall we felt the dinner, while good, was way over priced. (We knew the price going in, but thought we would be more wowed by the event than we were). We may have had a different opinion if we tried regular menu on a regular night.
