Taormina Sicilian Cuisine
Excellent Sicilian style food, and great service, too. We particularly enjoyed 2 pasta dishes with seafood, and the tiramisu for dessert.
Dined here a few times. Always enjoy the friendly staff/servers and food. Everything is amazing. The trio of desserts is not on the menu, however you can ask for it. It’s amazing!
Taormina is my go-to lunch spot in Waikiki. Service is always excellent, food is always amazing, and drinks are always refreshing and tasty. Definitely will be back soon!
This is my husband's favorite restaurant. His all time favorite is the balsamic spaghetti. Roxy was an awesome server. The manager came to check up on us so we were confident that we had the best service. Thanks for a great dining experience! Will definitely return.
Great pasta. Best in Hawaii. Very good. Jist. Loy of money for small portions.
I went to this restaurant on the 11th March.
It was supposed to be our special dinner because we had a wedding ceremony,but it was just a terrible dinner..
Especially the man who served us was terrible.The coure was too late and we were about to die.And the paring wine was also bad...
I won't go again.
A real sleeper to dine as some unusal and tasty dishes. Do not miss the eggplant appetizer.
Great food and service. Wine expensive but a beer or two and wine by the glass is ok. Great food but the lasagna a little rich
Fantastic experience all round. Highly recommended
What a wonderful meal and excellent service!! Our server Jenn was attentive, friendly, and had great suggestions. Dani at the bar was awesome!! The food was fantastic - we ordered both salads on the menu, the kampachi carpaccio, frutti di mar, and another pasta and grilled seafood dish. All of them were delicious!! I would highly recommend dining at Taormina!!
Enjoyed sitting on the lanai
Food and wine were both outstanding. Different type of Italian, things you can’t get everywhere. We really enjoyed our meal and the service was top notch.
Taormina never disappoints. It is my favorite restaurant in Honolulu. The service, cuisine quality, presentation, and ambiance all combine for a wonderful dining experience! Management and staff are to be congratulated on maintaining such excellence.
This was our first time to have dinner and the food is very delicious and the service was also good.
Among the three or four Italian themed restaurants in Waikiki Taormina stands very tall. I was particularly impressed with the outstanding take on Bolognese. That was the best, most authentic Bolognese I've had since our ventures in northern Italy.
Food was fantastic, especially the spaghetti with clams.
It was our wedding anniversary and they spoiled us.
Staff were professional.
We had a lovely evening
My husband and I dined here 5 times on our vacation. The food and service are perfection! Everyone is very attentive and personable. A great restaurant!
Uni amuse Bouche was amazing. Abalone was cooked perfectly. Chewy but not rubbery. Squid ink pasta was delish! Definitely go back.
Good pasta. Great location
Celebrating mom’s 70th birthday. Great food and great service, and was the perfect birthday dinner.
There were elements of the service that were superb ie the waitress got our order completely wrong for main course and we were served 2 risottos instead of 2 lasagnes. Mistakes happen but this waitress obviously can’t have listened to us at all. However, we are not the types to make a fuss and the restaurant handled it well. We had quite a long wait for the correct meals having already been waiting for our main course before this. Whilst we waited, we were given a small entree to nibble on. This was raw salmon and mango which is a bizarre thing to give without checking that the customers would actually like it (we had not ordered any fish and my husband actually hates mango). As the wait became even longer, we were given a complimentary glass of wine each but were consulted over what type of wine we would like! The lasagne was a disappointment to us both. It was so very rich neither of us could eat it. The amount of blue cheese (which I normally really like) was overpowering. This is an expensive restaurant and I would have expected that, when our dishes were removed half eaten, enquiries would have been made as to whether we had enjoyed the dish. No questions were asked
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.
