    家族でワイキキ最後の夜のディナーとして予約して行きました。 テラス席でロケーションも最高でしたが、とにかく人手不足でオーダーを取りに来るのも遅く、やっと飲み物を注文するも出てくるのも遅い。料理を注文しても出てこず、30分くらい経ってからオーダーしたものが売り切れと言われ、別の料理を再オーダーするが、それもしばらく経ってから売り切れと…。息子のオーダーしたボンゴレビアンコ、ミネストローネ、どちらも売り切れで食べることが出来ませんでした。周りの席の人達もオーダーが通っていなかったり、オーダーを取りにこないので帰ってしまったお客さんもいました。味は良いのにとても残念な夜でした。

    Good service initially but then it felt like they forgot about us. Food was ok. Marsala was bland. They comp’ed the wine when they realized they forgot to bring it. Not a great experience for the price.

    New hostess does not follow note instructions. Upon asking when checked in, she did not offer to accommodate when asked again she said we would have to wait 25 minutes for another table to open up but regardless it wouldn’t change the circumstance because she would have to sit us in the same place. Offered no sincerity or apology for her lack of following instructions. We were regulars at this place, left for vacation for a month and came back to this treatment. Not sure if will be dining here anymore after this experience.

    The staff has just turned over and their menu is changed. They now offer brunch until 12, but no lunch until 1230. The online menu is no longer in use and the staff doesn’t know how to make those dishes. Its an Italian restaurant but they don’t know how to make an authentic Italian Pannini and it took nearly 45 min to get a Caprese salad. The service was very good. The manager did compmsome of the meal due to the time.

    Last night of our trip. The food itself was great, but the service was so slow and they seemed a little confused. Seems like the staff is new to serving. The bar tender didn’t know basic drinks (daiquiri) or the order was mixed up. We ordered a dessert (which was a huge portion) to split 3 ways and it took a while to get dessert utensils. Over all idea of the restaurant was amazing with compliments to the chef.

    We decided to go over here for brunch on a Sunday, and ended up leaving before we even ordered. To begin with, the place was dead, which is a bad sign. We were seated, and waited for over 10 minutes for someone to bring us a children’s menu. The server did not greet and was quite rude. She didn’t even acknowledge my husband when he thanked her for the menus. We ended up leaving due to Many factors, but that put the icing on the cake. The place was dead, and no one even had the time to come help us and take our drink order!!!

    The restaurant setting is lovely, beautiful outdoor seating and elegant inside dining. Very good Happy Hour offerings on drinks and appetizers. Delicious brushes. The food was good, but a bit overpriced for the quality and amount. It was 15 dollars for two pieces of broccollini snd 4 carrot sticks! Service was fast and attentive throughout. We never felt rushed.

    DO NOT EAT HERE. It was a complete waste of $200. Horrible service and tasteless food. We had a reservation and when we arrived the restaurant was almost entirely empty yet they gave us the worst table in the restaurant. Right next to the chaotic kitchen (see photos). We asked if we could eat outside or have a better table inside but the hostess said they were all reserved. Major attitude. Funny how most of those tables were still empty when we left. We got a bird’s eye view of the chaos between the manager, servers and kitchen staff. The food had zero flavor. All 4 of us had to add salt and pepper to our meals, and my husband had to get up and find a salt and pepper shaker because it was never brought to us when he asked. We had to ask 3 times for a drink refill. And to be honest we never figured out who our server was. The first guy just disappeared so we grabbed whoever we could find when we needed something. The manager ended up taking our order when she realized we had been sitting there for a long time. Wish we could get that night back and have a do-over somewhere else. Terrible meal and service; do not waste your money!

    Was concerned about some recent negative posts as this is one of our favorite places when in Waikiki. Happy to report that service and food was what we have come to expect and we will always recommend to our friends. Team that served us were quick and efficient and our food was on the table in a very reasonable amount of time considering we ate at 5:30.

    Weirdest dining experience ever. They have a happy hour from 1 to 6, but no one was sitting at the bar and the place looked empty. I had a reservation for 5:45, but arrived at 5:30, I asked if I could sit at bar and was told I'd have to wait until 5:45 (empty bar). So I waited, and returned at 5:45, asked to sit at bar and hostess said bar wouldn't be serving until 6:00. Who has a happy hour from 1-6 and an empty bar and refuses to seat people? We did eventually get to order from the happy hour menu, and the meatball was impressive. I also interrupted the hostess when she was about to put on deodorant when I asked for the wine menu. I even saw them turn away people without a reservation and the place was at about 50% capacity. TLDR; food ok, service not so good. Will not return.

    The place was nearly empty when we arrived. We were seated at a wobbly table, and greeted by the server in training. The server was friendly, but probably could have benefitted from a little more training. Our appetizer never came out of the kitchen. My dinner was served. Several minutes later, my wife’s dinner and our drinks arrived. The restaurant wasn’t busy, so not sure where the kitchen disconnect was. My vongole dish tasted decent, but there was an unusual amount of oil at the bottom of the plate, and no dish to discard my shells. My wife’s dish was gluten free - the pasta was undercooked and flooded with red sauce. (She did not get sick, so they handled the gluten well). Overall the restaurant has a great location and some good menu items, but the customer experience is a little lacking.

    If you do not have the staff to take care of the customers then you should close down and not stay open. 30 minutes before a server brought water and bread. 60 minutes before we got drinks and placed our food over. Finished dinner after 3 hours! This place has really gone downhill :(

    We went for Father's Day dinner. Everything was really great...food, service, table. However when we first arrived we had to wait for 15 minutes. We were quite confused since we had reservations in advance. The hostess said there was 3 parties ahead of us??? Didn't make sense since we had reservations. We found out later that most of the servers called in sick and they were left with only 2!!! The poor hostess was trying to keep it all together along with our server. It was fine with us. Once we were seated everything went very smooth. We did think that they should have had us seated and explained the situation and offer drinks/bread that the manager/hostess probably could have served us??? Oh well. Overall we had a great time and a delicious dinner. We will definitely return.

    Not quite sure what was going on, but there seemed to be some miscommunication between the actual server and her helper. The wait time was long and we weren't sure who to ask when we needed something. As far as the food, calamari app was crispy and cooked well. Sauce for the eggplant parm was mediocre and didn't have much flavor. Tiger prawns were overcooked. I would not recommend this restaurant.

    Very good Italian fair - beyond the good food is the ambiance. The outdoor seating is really wonderful with the flora & fauna of mid-court ground-level Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center. The people are extraordinarily friendly and accommodating. Unlike Taormina where the manager is Unfriendly and Snobby which is extended through to their staff. If you want to enjoy - go to Il Lupino - If you want to overpay and have draconian made-up rules imposed upon you go to Taormina!
