Some of the best Italian we have ever had and we eat a lot of Italian food. Absolutely outstanding gluten free pasta
Food is great atmosphere is great but too expensive.
Our world food tour continued …. In Sicily, at Taormina on Lewers. This is such an elegant space with tables overlooking Lewers, tables upstairs and al fresco, adjacent to the road leading to the Sheraton Waikiki.
We began with a bottle of 2018 Kenzo Estate Rindo, one of my favorite wines. Our starters were the Taste of Italy and the Beef Carpaccio. The former featured very ripe and delicious tomatoes, fresh Mozzarella, prosciutto and Arugula. The carpaccio was so flavorful and was topped with a generous heaping of Arugula and a caper vinaigrette.
We ordered the Truffle Carbonara “Tartufo Fresco”, Porcini Risotto with sauteed Foie Gras, and the pan roasted Duck Breast. The gorgeous scent of truffles, freshly shaved over the pasta, permeated the restaurant … just heavenly! The risotto was a feast for the eyes and our palates and the duck breast was a work of art and so savory. Each entrée was a visual, olfactory and gustatory delight.
Dessert was Tiramisu and Affogato … the Tiramisu was served on a black sheet of stone with fresh fruits and a berry coulis. The affogato was perfection! I finished my meal with a double espresso.
Taormina is a wonderful restaurant with great food and superlative service. Recommended!
Excellent service! Great food! Clean and with good Covid precautions. Will visit again!
Great food and wine list. Kids enjoyed the food as well.
Wow.. Taormina delivered in every way. The staff each greeted my wife and I as we walked in. The hostess found us a quite table upstairs. The beef carpaccio was truly phenomenal. My wife had the truffle carbonara and it amazed us both. I had the risotto with foie gras. It was spectacular. For dessert, my wife had the chocolate cake and I had the tiramisu. Both truly delicious. We were blown away by the food. This was truly a 10. It would be a mistake not to eat here.
Great service and food. Will come back again.
Great food and great service. We are here twice while on vacation.
Very creative and delicious food. Our waiter and staff were friendly and professional
Good but expensive for what you received.
The entire dining experience is excellent! We had the Bolognese, Vongole and the grilled chicken was surprisingly moist and juicy. All dishes were done well and delicious. We regularly dine here for lunch and dinner and never disappointed. A go to place for exquisite Italian dishes.
Great service and great food.
This place is one of the most authentic feeling Italian meals I’ve had in a very long time, and makes nearby Italian spots feel comparable to the Olive Garden. We plan on returning soon and consistently.
Overall it was a pleasant experience. Food was good and our server was wonderful!
The reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is because I wish they had asked us if we preferred to dine inside or outside. We didn’t have a choice and they sat us outside.
Food and drinks are outstanding. Service was impeccable. We are seeing so happy to be able to get a reservation.
The food was delicious and the ambiance was perfect for date night! We also had great service. Everyone was so nice, from the hostess to the waitress to the person who brought out bread and cleared our plates. Highly recommend!
Family get together; great Italian restaurant; good service
A great fund. The truffle carbonara was delicious - only reason I did not give a 5 star review is because it was not served hot. Which it needed to be to completely cook the egg. But the truffles made up for that! Duck delicious- not fatty but very flavorful. The seafood mix was plentiful and tasty. Wine list a bit over priced but extensive. Nice to have a quiet elegant atmosphere in Waikiki. Will be back!
Coming from MA, we struggled with finding an authentic Italian restaurant until we found this lovely space. The food is delicious, the staff are too notch and the vibe in the restaurant is incredible. One of our favorite restaurants!!
Always a treat and an exceptional experience every time.
Visiting from Wisconsin. Loved the ambiance. Gave, our server, was excellent. He was witty, personable, and well educated with the menu and liquor/wine selections. Certainly enjoyed our evening
Always lovely to eat at Taormina. The staff, service, ambiance and food are always outstanding!
We sat outside with covered seating. Service was very good. All of our appetizers and entrees were outstanding. We had pasta Fresca with squid ink and seafood. Also had lamb, duck and fruti de mare entrees. Initial cocktails were excellent and so was the Etna Rosso bottle of wine. Finished off with limoncello. Great meal.
THE FOOD AND SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT AND WE WILL GO BACK POSSIBLY BEFORE WE GO BACK HOME.
Overall love this place and will be back
Always a favorite when we visit Waikiki. Veal parmesan is spectacular!
Amazing food. All done perfectly right… pasta, steak, grill fish, etc. amazing quality. Beer collection could be better… ideally add draft ones as Hawaii is hot :)
Amazing dinner experience and lovely staff, we loved our waiter “J” she was amazing!
Great service and the food! Would recommend highly
This restaurant is a first class wonderful food good service experience waders wonderful wine list.
We would highly recommend to dine.
Great food, service and the atmosphere was fantastic!
The server in charge was empty, but I didn't notice until I asked.
The food was great
Best black truffle pasta outside of Italy.
I really like it here! It's just so pricey........ As a local I do wish you did Kama'aina
The food was really good and they were accommodating in making changes to the menu items.
Pleasantly surprised by this little Waikiki gem! Would definitely return as I didn’t get to try everything that looked good on the menu! Fresh pastas are amazing.
We booked a table here at a friend's recommendation. The food was all very good, from antipasto to dolce. As it is hard to find an authentic Italian restaurant in the US, we were really happy and enjoyed every single dish we ordered (all the plates were squeaky clean after we ate!)
Sorry though, coming from Tokyo (where even at a casual Italian trattoria, the standard is pretty high), we could not give a high rating for the value.
The food was delicious
