About Taormina Sicilian Cuisine
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).

Taormina Sicilian Cuisine Ratings and Reviews
It was again, a spectacular experience! Kaui, our server and everyone else made us so comfortable. We requested a window table and received it. It was so relaxing and the food was superb! I can't get enough of the Mentaiko Pasta. I cleaned my plate... literally! I definately will be back again!
This is one of those places you will go back to whenever you are in Honolulu. It is small and intimate but the chef is uber creative, like you would expect from the finest in NYC. Local and fresh ingredients make the meals even better than that. Wine list provides excellent selection at a variety of prices, many very reasonable (i.e. low). Service was perfect. Our waiter, Stan, has been there over 10 years. That says a lot.
We were shown to the small upstairs overflow room in the empty restaurant fir our pre booked 5.30 early dinner . We had to insist on a table in the empty main restaurant area . The staff showing us to table had no idea . The waiting staff were wonderful . Old nat king cole + music loud music gave old style ambience . Nothing modern about this restaurant. Top quality food; highly referred and regarded .
Highly recommended restaurant on Trip Advisor. Our party was disappointed with the quality of the food, outside of the clam pasta dish which was excellent. Everything else was significantly overpriced and substandard in taste. The pasta moderna was particularly unpleasant.
My wife and I have been on two "dates" since our daughter was born 21 months ago. We decided to give Taormina Sicilian Cuisine a try since we've heard so many good things about it. We decided on the five course menu. All dishes were amazing...and we want to go back to try different dishes the next time! Definitely a must for everyone who loves good food!
The food was fabulous and the portion size on the generous side. The service was excellent. I could not have picked a better choice for our final night on the island.
My sole issue is related to seating. We were seated very close to a large party with a lady in particular who was extremely loud and intoxicated. It was pretty much impossible for us to have a conversation and would have been nice to have been seated away from that group.
My family visited this restaurant while travel in Hawaii.
We ordered Seafood bruschetta, Sea urchin “Ricci di mare" pasta, Truffle Carbonara “Tartuffo fresco”, Nero “Frutti di Mare”.
Everything we have ordered was under the expectation.
But the atmosphere was fairly good and quiet in the heart of noisy Waikiki.
