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.

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.

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’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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
