We've lived in Aiea over 25 years and have passed this restaurant several times but never visited. Finally on the advice of a friend we had dinner and it was terrific. Some of the best Italian meals we ever had. Service was very good, and prices, well lets just say we have returned many times since and will continue to... More

This is my daughter's favorite Italian restaurant outside of Honolulu . Restaurant quality diminishes somewhat outside of Honolulu, in the suburbs, etc. Food quality and service has been consistent over the years that we've visited this restaurant. Food is good and service is usually good to very good. As a Italian restaurant on this side of the island, its better... More

Salad with sea food was great. Veal parmigiana was bland. Moscota was headache type. Tiramisu was tasteless and half frozen. Cappuccino was as it should be.

Decor is not as good as it could be, food was super good, wine was super good, dessert was super good, service was super good! I suggest this restaurant for sure!

They do a pretty good job with the food here. The portions were generous enough that my wife and I are usually able to share (we're not big eaters). The table wines are so-so, but they have an extensive selection of others. Service is above average.

Dillon is a fantastic server. He was friendly and attentive from the moment we walked in. Liked the ambience. There's a small bar as you walk in, and candles on the tables. Really felt like "the real thing," as compared to the chain restaurant across the street that lacks the originality and hospitality Verbano's definitely has. We shared a house... More

August 2012, frequent diner to this location, have eaten here for several years, favorite of my 11 yr. old son. Better food and service when compared with Kaimuki and King Street locations. No reservations needed for parties of 4 or less, they have always had a table available. Wine and bar service available. Ample Pearl Ridge mall parking. Better food... More

We visited Verbano's on a Friday night. It was less than a third full, which was unexpected since we've dined here a year before and it was packed. Verbano's is a quiet restaurant with low lighting and tablecloths. So, it comes across as a romantic dinner spot. Our party of four had four separate entrees, and each of them was... More

i've been to this restaurant three times now, and each time I've been impressed. But the other night I ordered the Seafood Past and it was heavenly! The rich tomato sauce coated each spaghettini noodle and the generous servings of shrimp, scallops and squid were all perfectly cooked. The seasoning was also perfect; not too much garlic (which some restaurants... More
