Whether you are in the mood for pizza, a hearty pasta dish or one of Chef Giuseppe’s specialties, the choice is sure to be an outstanding experience.
this was a Mother’s Day nightmare. they completely over booked. we waited for an hour and kept being promised it would be soon. we finally left and went to Emilios across the street. Emilios was amazing. Foul Ball taoromino. we cater from you and come all the time and you almost ruined mother’s day. you lost a loyal customer. maybe try not to over book and lie to your patrons in the future. not happy
I would recommend this restaurant but not on a holiday. A reservation for 42 was coming in as we were eating and needless to say is was VERY disruptive. While the food quality didn’t suffer the atmosphere was quite hectic. We were asked to stand during our meal to be able to move people in and out of the dining room. I still don’t understand why a restaurant that small would accept a reservation that large unless it was family and If that’s the case close
Down and enjoy your family.
My Brother and I enjoyed taking our mother out for Mother’s Day and the meal and service was excellent
Food is always amazing...selection excellent, service and atmosphere fantastic!
Food was plentiful, many interesting menu options and Barbara was an excellent server
Been there serveraltimes, Great food with great consistency
the food was very good. I had Veal Chop Parmigiana which was excellent. The stuffed artichoke was fair. They dont't have a full bar just wine and beer. My wife liked her chicken Chicken Taormina. We had Italian Cheese cake for dessert which was very good.
Both the food and service as always been consistent for the severals years I have gone there. Great running operation
Amazing service, great food. Our waitress was so so nice.
Our waitress was fantastic as usual and the food was outstanding. Loved Pasta night.. Chicken night is one of our favorites too.
Would have probably rated higher had we not had to wait 20 minutes past our reservations. Finally had to speak up when we saw couples without rez getting seated before us. Food and service always good otherwise.
We loved our meals, Absolutely delicious
Unpretentious and very welcoming
Outstanding food at a great price topped off with wonderful service! This is a great place for families with kids!! Fried Calamari and the mussels are great apps to start with.
A little to loud but it was crowded. Nothing outstanding but for quick local fare
What more can I said that I haven't said. I have known Peter and his well trained staff for several years, the quality and consistency and the meal has never disappointed me and the friend who i have bought over to dine with me
Always very delicious. Service was great. Barbara is a sweetheart it was very very busy and we were served right away.
We’ve eaten here before and have enjoyed our meal. Brought friends along this time. Disappointed in veal Marsala...veal was tough and not pounded thin as it should be. Will try next time to see if quality is any better.
My husband and I go at least once or twice a week. The food is wonderful and the service is great. The owner Peter is a great guy. It never disappoints!!!
Nice place. Some items reasonably priced, others a little less so. Good food and service. Didn't like the seat backs in the booths: felt every movement from the people behind us. Very accommodating in moving us to a table, instead.
It's all about the food right...
Great taste and presentation. Our server Vita could not have treated us any better. We now have a new place for great Italian food.
Nice neighborhood placed to go with friends.
Nothing fancy. The prices are a bit high for a pizzeria!
Excessive wait (~45 minutes) despite having reservation. Host/pizza chef was very disorganized with the wait list. Food was OK. Staff not fully able to cope with the crowd but were all pleasant.
Wonderful atmosphere. Beyond delicious food. Impeccable service. Highly recommend!
Most recent dining was LI restaurant week and, as always, Taromina comes through with an excellent menu. Their spedini is outstanding. This is truly a neighborhood gem.
great food great service dream price. can’t wait to go back
Excellent all around as usual.
Delicious authentic Italian cuisine... always the best
While the Taormina Restaurant menu is adapted for Asian clientele, there are several authentic great Italian dishes such as burrata, octopus, eggplant or unbelievable local fish! Taormina is must to visit when in Honolulu!
All the best for the Taormina Team in the New Year!
Very good food, excellent service, noise levels a bit much.
Went for an annual Christmas dinner with old friends. The staff was so warm and welcoming. Especially given the fact that we had brought in bags of gifts for each other that I’m sure were in their way no matter how much we tried to tuck them away.
The owner stopped by to see how everything was. Everything we ate was delicious. Steak to fish to Italian classics. And don’t miss the stuffed artichoke and Rainbow cake!
The dining room is small, so if full the noise level can be high....glad we stayed to close the place.
Food is very good and staff is friendly. On this particular night the service was a little slow to take our order. But it was very busy and once our order was taken, there were no issues the rest of the night. All of the staff is friendly and very accommodating. We would definitely go there again.
If you want home cooking like you would find at your nonna's table, this is the place.
Best Italian food around. Makes me feel like home.
A neighborhood gem that is ok next of our go to places. Great food and service moderately priced.
As always food and service is great They make you feel welcome from the minute you walk in.
Delicious as always!
I have been going to this place for over 15yrs and never disappointed
The restaurant was crowded and noisy for a Monday night. The pasta specials were great, but they did not offer complete meals. Everything is a la carte. For a $14.95 meal we paid over $70.00 for 2.
The choices were very good.
Excellent food and service as always.
The chicken rolatini was like no other chicken dish that I have had: perfectly moist with broccoli rabe and sausage stuffing.
Great place for everyday great italian food and also soecial occasions.
Love this family owned and run gem!!
Delicious food. Worth the wait
