    The food was great as were the staff! We had a larger party so we made a reservation and didn’t have to wait long before our table was ready. Would definitely recommend.

    We had a lovely server who was very sweet and attentive. Not the best option for date night given that it’s at a resort so many of the patrons are bringing in young children, but that’s to be expected! We just needed a quick but good meal before a show at the Blaisdell and it did the trick nicely:) Pro tip for locals: Eat here and get parking validation for up to 4 hours. If you time it right with your showtime at the Blaisdell, you can just Uber/Lyft over there and back to the resort to avoid the crazy parking mess.

    If you cant go up stairs, not the place to go. No elevator. Had a reservation arrived a little early and were seated as soon as the table was set up. Great service and all meals were so good! 1 Mahi fresh catch, 1 lasagna, 1 fettuccine with meat sauce( forget what they call it) and 1 surf n turf. We all agreed steak and Mahi cooked perfectly and great flavor. Both pasta dishes had similar sauces and were very good. Our server was very helpful and attentive. Not sure why the ratings aren't higher!

    Friendly server. Mahi served on mushy cauliflower base which looked okay but made the food (asparagus and fish) taste bland. Chicken,Parm tasted reheated and uninspiring. Inflated cost for sub par food. Should have eaten at home.

    We ordered arribiata and were served vodka sauce. A cream sauce. The waiter disagreed with us that this was the wrong sauce. Did nothing (at first) to remedy the situation. Eventually removed both dishes from the bill. We had dined here several days before and we were served a proper arribiata sauce. It was weird. Waiter was defensive and slightly rude about the whole thing. The Brussels Sprouts were fantastic, so was the asparagus.

    Pre-booked on-line. Very smooth reception by their reception staff. The staff in charge of our table, Mayumi, provided the best services to us during our vacation in Honolulu, informing us of the restaurant’s recommendation, asking frequently if everything was ok, and setting the dishes on the table very comfortably. We were lucky to meet her at the last dinner in Honolulu before we leave for Tokyo. We look forward to coming back to the restaurant and meeting her next time!

    They were out of the lasagna so hubby ordered (by recommendation) the linguini bolognase, said it was similar. It really wasn't. And the sauce tasted more like chili than Italian sauce. The risoto was nice. Bread was nice. Not exciting enough for us to go back as it truly didn't taste Italian.
