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).

    Food and service were really good, can’t fault that. Prices were acceptable for an up market Italian restaurant in the centre if the main drag of Waikiki However, I have to note, that the major let down was the temperature in the room. It was uncomfortably hot. In the middle of summer the restaurant should be cool enough to sit down and relax and enjoy your meal without sweating in your chair. Also, it was noted that a lot of the service staff (not our server who was great) didn’t really look like they wanted to be there. They looked over it and is was very noticeable. The fact that this restaurant is turning away diners at 8.45pm on a Thursday night when the street is absolutely bustling with tourists is concerning. A staff attitude adjustment and making sure your air conditioning is working properly would see this turn into a 5 star restaurant because the food was impressive.

    Amazing food and good service. The challenge was that our seating was 20 mins later than our reservation. There is nowhere to sit to wait and no beverages (i.e., a glass of wine) was available while we waited.

    Very good restaurant with delicious sauce. Was really surprised how good it was in Honolulu. The only negative was the people ordering Salmon found the fish to be salty. I would highly recommend the place and personally suggest the amazing Veal Chop.

    いつも美味しい料理を頂けます。シシリア料理の為か、オーソドックスなイタリア料理とは少し違いますね。魚介類は特に美味しいです。テーブルの間はやや狭く、隣りのグループが騒がしいと少し鬱陶しいかも知れません。ワイキキで美味しい料理を頂ける貴重なお店です。

    Not sure if we ordered the wrong items on the menu or they had an off night. The veal chop and duck were both dry. The duck was cooked medium well... never had duck served that dry before. Service was just ok. Our server did not seem to like her job.....very routine.; no greeting when she first came to our table. just a "hello" then asked whether we were ready to order. She double charged my husbands drink and when we told her, she replied "oh yes, i knew that, but forgot to correct it". No real apology.. On the positive side, though, was the food runner, Moses. What a nice, pleasant and courteous gentleman!! And very helpful! We might give this restaurant another try (maybe for lunch) and will try the pasta and hopefully have another server that's better.

    Akane was a wonderful server. The quality of her service was superb!! Unfortunately the guest sitting next to us was bad mannered, sleeping after beer and ruining the atmosphere. The special dessert for our anniversary was beautifully presented and delicious. Thank you for this!
