Wife had the Lasagna, I had the Granchio, both dishes were excellent. Never had better tasting beef ragu in the lasagna. Wine with meal. Would like to try dinner next trip.
Always good food and service. I would like to recomend to my friends.
唯一の難点は テラス席だったので 外のゴミ収集車が スゴイ音で興ざめでした。
A friend from the Colombo Club in Oakland recommended this restaurant and I am glad he did. Great authentic Italian/Sicilian food and a wonderful wine list. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and there was a variety in the selections of pasta, meats and fish. They provided valet parking which was a great extra.
We sat outside. Inside dining would be preferable. Inside ambiance is much better.
The food was mediocre at best. The California pizza company or cheese cake factory is just as good for hall the price.
Wonderful. Excellent food and service. Taormina will be a regular on our list whenever we are visiting Waikiki.
Amazing food, as always...
The food is very delicious and the service was great. Presentation was fabulous, but expensive.
We went for lunch as a goodbye to Waikiki, it was just fabulous.
It was disappointed experience since we visited there from they open the restaurant.
First of all, they brought us second floor. It was first time for us. I immediately expected the seat will be not good because screaming under three years two kids sat near our table and big Chinese group. As you can imagine, it was worst experience at the restaurant. we can not hear our voice. The each table of next from the noisy group left to other restaurant soon. If it was not rainy day, we also wanted to move quiet restaurant.
Second, the noise level will cause the incident. Our waiter misunderstand our order so one of my important friend did not get main meal same time.
All of those reasons, we can not recommend the restaurant to our friends anymore.
Taormina Sicilian Cuisine is where we celebrated our wedding dinner as well as our first wedding anniversary. It was the best experience and we were able to experience with our beautiful daughters. The food was excellent as always and we were able to bring our cake from wedding, 1 year later and they put "happy anniversary" with chocolate and raspberry sauce. It was amazing and beautiful. This is definitely the place for romance or the place to bring the whole family for a nice dinner. The ambience and environment are just perfect. This is my #1 choice of restaurants on Oahu. Thanks for your help in making our days special!!
My husband just retired and two of our sons, daughter in law and our granddaughter wanted to celebrate somewhere special. We had never been to Taormina's. The food was absolutely fabulous! Fresh pasta done to perfection! We all ordered something different on the menu so we could sample the dishes. From the lasagna to the Bolognese to the alla caprese, everything was delicious. Service was outstanding and they even surprised my husband with a beautiful tiramisu platter with "congratulations" written in chocolate!
Definitely will be going back!
This restaurant serves good traditional Italian meals that are well presented and tasty.The menu is rather limited but okay
I go there every time I go to Honolulu as I love the food and the atmosphere.
We have been here several times and it is always excellent. I highly recommend this little gem.
Outstanding service and scrumptious food. Lasagna spectacular. Waiter Brooke personable and attentive. Highly recommended
Some nice fresh pasta. Kind of small wine list. all the portions were on the small side, not that I left hungry. Quality was very good
Poor service, brought water and didn’t even ask us if we wanted drinks. I asked what market price was for truffle pasta and she took that as my order and we had to call her back. Never checked on us, all our service came from other waiters clearing our dishes
This was one of the best overall dining experiences. Food, servers, staff all just excellent.
Superb service and food.
Sicilian food like we found in Sicily.
Pasta was cooked well, and the sauces were well done.
Frutto did Mare one of the best we've had.
Bread was okay.
We went to Taormina for lunch and had a wonderful experience. The food was outstanding. My three companions had pasta which was delicious. I chose the fixed price lunch, which is a lot of food, all expertly prepared. In fact I would recommend skipping breakfast and going big at lunch. Our waitress, Alyssa, did a great job. She was pleasant, attentive and knowledgable about the dishes on the menu. She made an enjoyable experience even better. My wife and I had mentioned that we had recently both celebrated birthdays. We didn’t expect anything, but at the end of the meal we each received a complimentary tiramisu and ice cream dessert from the chef. We will return to Taormina.
We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and service. Everyone enjoyed every course and loved the uniqueness of each dish. Pretty reasonable for a dining experience at this level. Hannah, our server, was delightful. Thanks for a great evening! We'll be back.
Very good dinner and service. Choose all Sicilian dishes which were outstanding.
We eat here whenever we are in Honolulu.
Great food. Had the catch of the day. Very attentive and gracious staff. Lots of attention to detail. They even offered (without us asking) an umbrella to get us through the cloudburst that started when we got up to leave.
Will definitely return on next trip to Honolulu.
I believe if you were seated in the inside of the restaurant, you may have better service. Service was very slow on the outside seating area. Food was salty. Needed to drink a lot of water during and after meal. The Tiramisu and chocolate cake was okay but not great as described.
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
Because I had just celebrated my Birthday
A Delicious Tiramisu with Belgian chocolate ice cream as a Birthday Surprise dessert . I will highly recommend Taormina Sicilian Cuisine for my Guests to dine at during there Stay in Hawaii
Thank you to Kazu , Jackie and Jenn and all the Chefs ... Thank you for making my Birthday very Special . Aloha
Absolutely wonderful! The truffle pasta is amazing.
dishes were tidy and tasty.
kitchen offered us a extra dish for waiting long time. i really appreciated it
My wife and I celebrated our birthdays at our favorite restaurant, Taormina. They always deliver and never disappoint. Our favorite dishes are their seafood bruschetta, vongole spaghetti, sardine pasta, etc. Their desserts are also excellent. We usually sit inside, but were taken to an outside table this time around. It was fine until a huge truck parked tight outside next to our table. It was quite noisy as it kept its engine on. Honolulu is a big city. So, nothing you can do about that. We will probably pick an inside table next time. Taormina still gets our vote as our favorite and best Italian restaurant.
