Best Italian I've had on island, and I grew up with an Italian mom!
I can’t say enough about the fabulous food, it was delicious and portions very generous! It was fantastic seeing Chef Rodney doing what he does best! Our server, Miriam, was very attentive and provided wonderful suggestions on the menu.
Here’s where it fell a little short for us. The lighting in the dining room was very harsh, and much too bright for what I would consider can be a special occasion restaurant. It felt like we were eating in a diner with bright overhead lights. We also had two different colored napkins - brown and black - on our table.
In the dining room, tablecloths were uneven on some tables, not consistently straight or uniformed on all sides. Lastly, staff should not be sweeping so closely to the tables while guests are eating. He should have used a dustpan as he swept, rather than sweeping the flower petals in a pile, then picking it up later.
I will definitely come back with friends to enjoy more of Chef Rodney’s culinary creations! Congratulations, VIAGGIO, you have arrived!
Food, ambiance and wine was perfect. Still need to fine tune staff.
First time there for brunch. Excellent selections and very good. Service was friendly.
The food was not bad, Miriam was awesome. For $65, you need to have fresh seafood and an omelette station.... No au jus or horseradish for the prime rib..... Deserts were dry.... I will check out the happy hour and dinner sometime in the near future.
We used the private dining room and had pre-ordered appetizers which were delivered as we arrived. Wow'd us with their service and attention. Great space for dinner meetings up to 12. We even finished off the evening with some craft cocktails overlooking the Blaisdell and City lights. Can't beat the view, service and dining experience! We'll be back for sure!
The menu options were very good and the wine selection matched the meals perfectly. Great service from Matt!
The staff was very nice and the ambiance was also nice.
It’s so unfortunate the food was so poorly cooked.
The meal was not worth the price we paid and the quality was horrible.
Thanks for your visit and feedback. we are disappointed that we didn't meet your expectations this visit. We hope that we have the opportunity to serve you again and win you over with our food. Aloha!
Food was great. It is a little pricey, so just be prepared to spend a few $$$$. Service was excellent and we were able to enjoy a nice relaxing dinner. Our biggest disappointment was that they were out of a couple of desert options which we wanted to try.
Mahalo for your feedback Dean! We apologize for selling out of the desert you fancied. please let us know when you are coming back and what you want to try.
I had high expectations for this new restaurant but I didn't think the food was up to my expectations. Small menu and did not feel it was an authentic Italian restaurant.
Thanks for your feedback and sorry that we didn't meet your expectations. our menu vision is Italian inspired with Hawaiian flair. we hope you will visit us again and try some of our signature items...
Everything was great — but a bit noise. Hard to have a conversation even within our table.
Aloha Barbara, thanks for visiting with us. Next time you come please ask to be seated in a quieter place. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
We had a delicious meal at Viaggio. The octopus appetizer was very tender. My husband had the cioppino and I had the linguine tutti mare, both were flavorful and had lots of shellfish.
The entertainment that evening was wonderful - a duo playing beautiful Hawaiian music as we know it from the Hapa band.
Unfortunately I felt the service was not up to par with the prices being charged for the meal. Wine bottle self poured, no changing the shellfish shell dishes, no finger bowl or extra napkins, had to ask for new cutlery after the appetizers.
The restaurant has potential for being a wonderful experience but needs to kick up service standards since the prices are about in line with $$$$ restaurants like Hokus.
Pros: free valet parking, handicap accessible, takes reservations, live music, professional service.
Cons: Overpriced for food quality, music too loud.
Dakota was an amazing server. We came to have dinner here before attending an event at the Blaisdell and it was perfect! Can't wait to have an excuse to go again.
Outstanding Italian food and service!
I wanted to like it more than we did. The space was oddly laid out next to a car dealership. The tables were set up close to each other, but wider than was comfortable to talk to your companion. I was closer to the person next to me on the bench. The food was irregular. At first we only received a salad and appetizer menu, so we didn't know what entrees to plan for. The onion soup and our salad were very good. The sauce on my chicken carbonara was very good but the chicken was dry. I think it was held under a warming light too long. My companions fish was a little tough, but again his sauce was tasty. He had to saw at it with his knife. We notice someone else complained and was given another piece. Our panna cotta dessert was very good. Service was good.
It was a Friday night. Four of us wanted to try this new restaurant and we also wanted to talk many stories. When we got there the musician was playing music which is lovely but we kind of expected for a quiet night.
The service was ok. We asked wine menu but our waitress never came back so we ended up asking a different guy.
We ordered one appetizer and threw entries and none of them were hot.
In a hale way of our dinner the live music needed so we finally could have conversations with normal voice. But in 40 minutes, the top light on the table because so bright. And other area was dark. We took the hint it was our time to leave. Just us and one more table in the restaurant.
Overall, we all were not so satisfied with the meal and the night out.
Should have checked if they have live music on Fridays.
We shall go back? Not likely but we are glad we tried.
The food was very good. The only drawback was the putanesca was a little too salty for my taste.
New restaurant with good ambience and location, happy hour is respectable with choices of pupus. Great wine selections. Steaks are ok. Service is excellent
Everytime I go there, the service and food continues to get better. They do an amazing job and keep elevating the experience. A must visit for happy hour for cocktails too!
Everything met and/or exceeded expectations from service to food to dessert. !!!
There is a nice selection of food and drinks and everything we had was delicious. The staff was very friendly, attentive and professional. The general manager stopped by our table to check in on everything and welcome us, which we really appreciated. The ambiance was a little more quiet and conservative than I prefer, but it was still nice and on par with what you'd expect for a fancy restaurant.
Worst waiter I've ever had the pleasure to be served by.
He made at least 8 mistakes and omissions.
Table busser offered to remove a full plate of food seconds
after it was delivered.
So many efforts that at least we had a good laugh.
The restaurant appears to be undergoing growing pains. The wait-staff needs to become more confident and knowledgeable. The kitchen could improve on the freshness of some ingredients. Service was good but not outstanding and more helpers were needed. We found ourselves frequently asking the bussers to summon our server. The food quality was generally very good, but we did report that the lettuce in our Caesar salad had brown edges, indicating it had been cut two days or more prior to our visit. Still, we were celebrating a birthday & management provided a complimentary dessert & gave us a nice bread basket! They were very nice people. We wish them success!
Food was overpriced for what it was.
Not your typical carbonara. Very saucy, unlike traditional.
Food was also not hot as expected.
I wouldn’t say cold, but...
Awesome HH 🥂
Dinner yummy!!! Staff super friendly and accommodating . It’s fresh & new, free valet parking and we will definitely return!!!!!
Amazing food, fantastic service, classy modern vibe
Expectations were high.. linguine seems too dry. Perhaps I’m not used to this type of pasta. My memories of pasta from Europe was very different. You can tell when pasta is freshly made....and that’s what I expected.
Very friendly especially the general manager who came over to greet us personally. Ambliance was amazing til a family with little children came and were seated next to us with videos blasting and parents yelling. Restaurant was perfect we just had a few noisy customers near us. Food heavenly and plentiful. Wait staff always attentive. A little hard to find the front door but with some effort we made it. A little pricy but worth it.
Amazing first time for my girlfriends birthday. Food was delicious and wonderful service and very friendly.
Viaggios is such a perfect addition to Honolulu. Finding all homeade super yummy italian food is not easy. They literally make all the bread and pasta in house. Absolutely epic. Great job guys. My wife and i will be back for sure.
Exceptional dining experience. Great service and food was delicious. Will definitely be back.
It was absolutely fantastic! The food was amazing and worth it. The location of the restaurant was also fun. I’ll definitely recommend this place to all of my friends.
Give them a year and itll be done. Same owners different twist. Smart foodies aren't fooled.
People will try it bc of the location convenience. But people will be disappointed.
Aloha, Thank you for your patronage, and we would like to apologize for your disappointing experience. We appreciate ALL feedback here at Viaggio - would you be able to share a few details as to why your experience was disappointing so that we may better serve future guests? Mahalo nui loa, Viaggio Management
My girl’s night out became a family night out. Changed my reservations from 4 people to six, from 6:00 pm to 6:30 pm.
My family enjoyed the food and drinks. Our waiter, Matt was very personable and informative. He answered all of our questions and was very polite to my family.
The risotto and lemon & basil sorbetto stood out the most. The rest of the meals were delicious according to each person.
The music was a pleasant surprise. A little loud for conversation, but great for an enjoyable evening out with family.
We will definitely tell our friends and family.
Viaggio is a very classy restaurant with pleasing decor. Our waiter, Dakota, was exceptionally attentive.
I would recommend to the kitchen to learn the difference between linguine and fettuccine though. The seafood linguine, (linguine tutti mari), turned out to be (fettuccine tutti mari), which was quite good, but not quite as "white" as the white wine garlic sauce on the menu indicated. I was hoping for more of a white wine-butter-garlic sauce. My wife said the Ricci di Mar (sea urchin), in a sake white sauce was quite good. Her insalata caprese was quite good with a surprising scoop of basil-lemon sorbetto in the middle. The sorbetto was awesome!
Very friendly and nice staff
Very nice location, food and service need improvement........food was not good.
Our waiter, Dakota, was excellent!!! We felt very welcome by assistant manager as well.
