Taormina Sicilian Cuisine
Our server was Gabriel who was wonderful & the desserts were amazing...great pastry Chef!!!
We were greeted nicely. Shown to an excellent table. Very upscale atmosphere. Our waiter Stanley was superb as usual.
Appetizers were really good. Service /wait staff was excellent, especially for Waikiki. Main dishes were just ok. Nothing special.
Great food and service.
Such a great night! The food was amazing! Carpaccio, lamb chops, pasta were off the charts in flavor and presentation! Our server Stan and all staff were knowledgeable about the menu , made great recommendations and anticipated any needs. Such a wonderful night! Thanks!
Don‘t tast the Pesce Mista - it is burnt food, only.
Taste very good. A little pricy..
Always reliable and delicious!
We came in for a Thursdate
Sat upstairs overlooking Lewers
Service was good overall from Akana
The food was a bit salt forward on the Ricci De Mare and the Olive Bread
Overall we were not as happy as other visits
Hopefully the food will improve
I have eaten at this restaurant before. The food has always been spot on, however service was not up par for fine dining. Server was maybe just having an off night ???
Great food and service.
This restaurant is a meeting of Sicily with Hawai’i. Attentive but not overbearing service.
Always great food and great service! Me and my friends are very satisfied every time we go there. You guys make us happy!
I ordered the pasta with no spicy since my child wanted to eat, but came with spicy a lot.
Focaccia supposed to be served warm but came frozen cold and hard.
Overall taste of the food was poor.
Server seemed no care.
Sat outside. Very pleasant. Food was excellent , service as well. My new favorite in Waikiki.
Our meal was amazing starting with the seafood bruschetta then monching and finishing with the chocolate lava type cake. Our waitress, Jackie, was so knowledgeable, professional and fun!!This was one of our best meals on our vacation. Fantastic restaurant. 💕
Had a great meal at Taormina. Have been coming here for years. The Bolognese "Moderna" is to die for.
We will return to try the 5 course option with wine pairings as it looked enticing.
We had outside seating and the staff provided us with a table for two, which turned out to be a cozy little setting for us. I had requested for a quiet table and the occasion was a “date” with my wife. I understand the restaurant cannot control the noise level for outside seating arrangements but did find myself leaning over during our conversations.
We had the risotto and the seafood pasta dishes...both were delicious. Accompanying our main courses were white and red wines, admittedly requiring seconds because they both paired well.
We used the Wyndham hotel valet parking in the back of the restaurant and found it convenient ($6 for 3 hours).
Looking forward to our next visit for lunch!
Always eat there when on vacation. Friendly staff, great food! I'm Siciliano...trust me, you'll love it too!
We always have a great time here!
Food is great. Service was wonderful.
We sat by the kitchen. It was fun!
Food was very good. Service was very poor. We had to wait a long time for our entree to be delivered. Very upsetting
Good for Japanese
Nice ambience and food!
Food good, but not spectacular- especially for the price
One of the few places open after 8:30 in Waikiki
Everything was great highly recommended been here on several occasions
Food was terrible, very ordinary pasta for a high price. Wouldn’t recommend to anyone
Very good place to taste sicilian, but rather italian cuisine in Waikiki !
Top welcome and service, as usual in USA, you're gonna tell me...
Very relaxing and tasty experience, a bit expensive but it worth.
We sat outside for our meal and it was GREAT!! The manager was very generous giving us 2 free desserts at the end of our meal and giving us a free glass of wine!! The waiter was very nice and very educated with the food that they offered!! Overall the experience definitely earns 5 stars in our opinions!! We will definitely go back! We recommend this place!!
The service here is outstanding as is the food. The uni (sea urchin) pasta is the best on the island for our tastes. The anchovy pasta is a delight in simple straight forward taste. It was neither oily nor salty but well balanced with a mild anchovy taste. The salad with pears and beets was full of flavor. The greens themselves, seemed perfect and flavorful as if they were picked just before serving.
We’ll be back again to enjoy this fine Italian cuisine.
The experience was mediocre
