Italian
Inspired by authentic Sicilian recipes from the kitchens of Southern Italy's seaside town of Taormina, Chef Hiroyuki Mimura pairs fresh pastas with the highest quality seafoods and meats. Unspoiled by heavy sauces, Sicilian-style pastas are dressed in pure, extra virgin olive oil. Fresh vegetables, lightly grilled fresh local fish, and lamb seasoned with herbs offer diners a healthy range of options.Featured dishes include fresh Fettucine Carbonara finished with tableside Truffle service, grilled Lamb Chops "Palermo" and Veal "Siciliana." Taormina's specialty dish is Uni Pasta (Sea Urchin), a delicacy enjoyed in Japan and Italy. Italian espressos compliment selections of house made desserts (Dolci).

2人の子ども連れで利用しました。
ハイチェアを用意してくださり、ありがたかったです。キッズ用のメニューなどはありません。
ここのウニパスタは絶品です。他にもウニパスタが有名なところがありますが、個人的にはこちらが一番です。
大人な雰囲気のところなので、子どもたちが騒いで、少し申し訳なかったです。小さい子連れならテラス席の方が良いかもしれません。
デートや記念日にオススメです。

We dined at Taormina for my daughter’s birthday. It was an awesome meal and equally great service. The dishes were delicious! Would definitely recommend and return.

From beginning to end our experience at Taormina Sicilian cuisine was exceptional! The beef carpaccio was amazing! It was so hard to decide on our entrées because everything was so appealing. I had the veal Milanese and it was so incredibly tender! The staff was beyond friendly and knowledgeable. This was hands down our favorite dinner on the island!!!

ハネムーン記念ディナーで訪れました。
ウニのパスタが有名だと知らずに来店しそのパスタを注文したのですが、、、一口食べた瞬間もう感動しました!
こんなに美味しいウニのクリームパスタを食べたことがありません☻!間違いなく今まで食べた中でNo. 1でした。
そしてオープンテーブルで予約時に"記念日"を選択していたら最後に"happy anniversary"のプレートをサプライズで出してくださいました!
スタッフの方の接客もフレンドリーながらきちんと行き届いている感じでとても素敵なディナーになりました。ハワイに来たらまた必ず訪れたいと思います!
ありがとうございました^ ^★

This was the best meal we had in Waikiki. The food was well cooked and delicious, the ambiance was great, and the service could not be faulted. Prices were no higher than many top end restaurants, so altogether, an excellent night out.

今まで4〜5回訪れていますが、今回は初めて外の席に案内されました。気にならない方はいいのですが、
外のお席は駐車場の出入り口の為騒がしいので中のお席をお勧めします。
ごちそうさまでした。

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 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.
Disappointed.

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!
