Inspired by authentic Sicilian recipes from the kitchens of Southern Italy's seaside town of Taormina, Chef Hiroyuki Mimura pairs fresh pastas with the highest quality seafoods and meats. Unspoiled by heavy sauces, Sicilian-style pastas are dressed in pure, extra virgin olive oil. Fresh vegetables, lightly grilled fresh local fish, and lamb seasoned with herbs offer diners a healthy range of options.Featured dishes include fresh Fettucine Carbonara finished with tableside Truffle service, grilled Lamb Chops "Luca pecorini" and Veal "Siciliana." Taormina's specialty dish is Uni Pasta (Sea Urchin), a delicacy enjoyed in Sicily, Italy. Italian Lavazza espressos compliment selections of house made desserts (Dolci).

    One of the few places on this island where you can eat delicious, Italian food, drink good wine from glasses that fit this type of wine and be satisfied with good service. Minus is that you must to wait for the main dishes (pasta) approximately an hour. Not less. All the guests who surrounded me with different arrows were waiting to the same time.

    The food was excellent along with the waiter Steve who was very nice. I think the wine list could have more less expensive wines in the $40-60 range. That is my only complaint.

    Five star food with four star service. Our waiter and serving staff were attentive and professional. The front of house were unfriendly bordering on rude. Authentic menu nicely executed. But at those prices the managers need lessons in basic etiquette.

    My birthday dinner was well celebrated. From the bottle of wine that they presented to me (ordered by my daughters on the mainland) to the complimentary tiramisu plated on glass. My bolognese was to die for (better than any I had in Italy). And my husbands veal chop was, well, how do I make a “fingers to lips” sound in words? Mwah!! We will definitely return here on our next visit to Waikiki!

    A large truck parked outside doing food deliveries was very noisy and spoiled the ambience of the terrace area. I am amazed that so many outside diners in the area allow this to happen. I have seen the truck there several times.

    Food was mediocre at best, extremely bland and little flavor. Ordered the truffle carbonara and it was very disappointing. Nothing like a true carbonara and tasted like flavorless pasta tossed in heavy cream with shaved truffles on top. To top it off the bill was $200 for a single appetizer, one main course and two wine flights; absurd.

    For our anniversary we had booked our usual table for 7 pm. When we got there, we were told that the previous diners were still at the table. We waited but after half an hour, we agreed to another, lesser table. We were then rushed through our dinner, the main course arrived when I was still eating the appetizer. Although the food was excellent as usual, we felt that the evening was ruined by first the delay in getting our meal and then the being rushed through. I don't know that we will return, even though we've been going there for about 15 years, there are so many excellent restaurants in Waikiki.

The duck breast and bolognese meals were perfection as was the salad and delicious Tiramisu; making dining in Waikiki special for us

    Wanted to take my mom out for a nice meal for her birthday, was a bit worried that it might be too nice to bring kids (10 & 6) but they were super accommodating to us sharing plates and giving a small version of pasta for my daughter. The seafood pastas were all outstanding.

    We were seated outside, where the kitchen vent noise was almost unbearable. There is a cluster of pipes hidden by a plastic shrub, which is also very unpleasant. The service was excellent, though. And the food very good.

    WOW!! The worst Italian meal my wife and I have had in over 25yrs. Out for our 38th anniversary dinner and was blasted with this pathetic display of cold, rubberized noodles, with the flavor of something I've never experienced in my 66yrs on this earth. Don't bother, the entire meal was a complete disaster!!!

    This place is a must if you are looking for an exceptional meal of Italian cuisine. Mose’s was an excellent guide and waiter who knows what customer service is about. Not to mention they offer kama aina for locals. Wine, food otptions, desserts, and staff was top notch! Mahalo from the big island!🙏🏽♥️
