Beautiful Taormina Sicilian Restaurant . Was greeted immediately by a very Friendly Host .
Seated at a beautiful table facing Waikiki Beachwalk . They had a small late afternoon lunch rush . Was greeted by Jackie very friendly and very informative in the menu . She recommended wonderful choices . I had a pea soup and garden salad with the most delicious garlic vinegarette dressing . Perfect for an afternoon. Lunch .Kazu ( the General Manager) came over and introduced himself was very proffesional and shared the history of how Taormina was conceptionalize .
I ordered the Sicilian as my pasta . Very flavorful and nice touch of spinach as well in the dish

kitchen offered us a extra dish for waiting long time. i really appreciated it
Our fourth visit to Taormina was as excellent as our first visit! The restaurant is one of understated elegance, the staff is friendly and professional, the service outstanding, and the cuisine consistently excellent. A personal favorite is the pan roasted duck breast. To illustrate the staff's commitment to making their guests' experience a positive one: A five-year old guest accidentally spilled his drink and was embarrassed and sad. A staff member immediately consoled him, quickly scooped up the ice and liquid while another staff member placed napkins over the wet table cloth. A new drink appeared momentarily. Thank you to the Taormina staff for leaving a positive lasting impression upon our party. Your understanding and compassion was deeply appreciated.
Always wonderful pasta. Outstanding wine menu.
I researched this particular restaurant, before I came to Hawaii. Had a Valentine’s Day dinner, and it was fantastic. It lived up to everything the reviews and pictures showed . I highly recommend this restaurant.
Amazing food and service. Varied menu with traditional Italian food and modern dishes.
Great Italien Food.....One of the Best Meals That I have Had In Waikiki.
The lasagna was maybe one of the best I've tried. Huge portion. The service was extraordinary; even though they took a long time to bring our food since we didn't ask for appetizers, they made it right bringing us a delicious eggplant and dessert as courtesy.
OMG!The lasagna is to die for! Service was personal and professional. This is a very attractive small restaurant that concentrates on -- and succeeds in -- doing a limited number of things exceptionally well. The Prix fixe menu with wine accompanying 3 of the 4 courses is a great value (especially at lunch).
A fantastic evening. Three of us and we ordered two appetizers and two main dishes. Excellent and enough food for all three of us.
We have dined at Taormina about 12 tImes over the last 4 years. Each time we thought to ourselves "wow", the food was that good. On this visit however, the food was quite simply
not as good as in the past. We thought to ourselves "meh" : not bad, but noticeably and distinctly more bland and less awesome than before.
In retrospect, we should have brought this to the attention of the staff.
Having said that, we hope it was just a one time thing, and we plan to go again.
Food was delicious but entree portion was one the petite side. Would be nice if the bread was freshly baked or at least served warm. The staff was very friendly and service was excellent.
We visit Honolulu every year and never miss our visit to our favourite restaurant.
Food and service was great. Dined outside on the patio which was very nice however you would get the cigarette smoke and noise from people out on the sidewalk next to the patio.
