Taormina Sicilian Cuisine
We split an order of calamari, which was well prepared, a little crusty and tender within. I had mushroom risotto with grilled fois gras, excellent! Very rich with complimentary flavors. My wife had pasta with sardines, also quite nice. For dessert we had tiramisu, prettily presented. We are moderate eaters and these dishes were sufficient.
Great Italian food and delightful service. Wonderful dessert!
Très bon restaurant mais plutôt cher. Les plats s'enchaînaient trop rapidement même si nous avons demandé au serveur d'espacer les services.
Tastes good and good service. A little pricey but then what in Honolulu isn’t. Will dine there again when next in town
Did the 5 Course with the drink accompaniments and it was fabulous.
Very fast, dark, and over priced dinner. Not like Taormina at all. Wanted an upscale dinner on our last night of vacation and left very disappointed.
Gabriel made the celebration of our 27th anniversary very special. Thank you all! The surprise was as great as everything you all do.
Good food, fantastic service a little noisy with street traffic when dining on patio
Very limited menu not offering enough salad choices or pasta choices. Everything has bacon on it.
Fabulous as usual. On our yearly trip here we go here at
Taorminas is a gem for a quick, delightful business lunch. Excellent food (the lasagna was exceptional, unique with a touch of blue cheese & perfectly breaded parmesan crust) My guests enjoyed the fresh fish and the special pasta (squid ink?) Excellent service, pikite, prompt yet not rushed, unobtrusive. Definitely a great spot for real italian lunch.
I always order the uni pasta but decided to try something different this time and ordered the squid ink linguine. I was just totally overwhelmed by its flavor, texture, presentation...everything. Service was great and flowed so smoothly. Perfect ambience for a nice quiet dinner for two!
Taormina continues to be one of the best dining spots in Honolulu. Filetto di manzo was excellent. Must try!
The meal was very good it has a very Italian feel to the restaurant. We both had the 5 course prefix meal.
Very good food, fresh and tasty lunch and dinner were amazing. Highly recommend
This was our favorite restaurant on Waikiki! The pasta was excellent, the wait staff very courteous and prompt. If we ever travel to Hawaii again, we would dine here again! The dining room was also quite intimate and cozy. I do recommend eating here and it’s very conveniently located to where we were staying at the Sheraton Waikiki!
We enjoyed the beer salad, pasta with mussels and local fish. All delicious.
Ari, our server , was a charmer.
We had superb service great food that was great value
Good wine list that was also great value
Fresh ingredients and authentic cuisine
We went back the next night it was so good
Best meal we have had in Hawaii
Outstanding food and service. I will definitely eat there again when back in Hawaii.
Excellent authentic food. Well managed staff and facility. Terrific server.
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.
Wonderfully prepared and presented seafood options.
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.
