Best Italian restaurant in Kailua

Great atmosphere and very good food. The calamari appetizer is the tenderest calamari I have ever had anywhere - highly recommended. My veal was tender and well prepared. The wine list is sufficient amd had some very good, reasonably priced selections.. Highly recommended. Make reservations.

Not sure I would agree that this is the best Italian food in Kailua. Personally, I liked Kalapawai Cafe & Deli better. But we wanted to try a different restaurant so we came here for our final evening in Kailua. First, we had a 8 pm reservation but had to wait nearly 20 minutes to get seated. Once we were... More

Service was good. Wine was good. My date said he would give it a 4. He said to get the Pall diobbino (spelling?) cabernet, not the da vinci. I had the Opa - which was the fish of the day and a very expensive dish. It was overcooked and not seasoned well at all. All our local friends had recommended... More

This restaurant has been around for a long time in Kailua. While other restaurants have come and gone, Baci has remined a staple for locals who live in the area. We just recently went to celebrate my mom's birthday and had a reservation for 10. We took up half of the indoor seating, the restaurant is not big. There is... More

This is actually one of the best restaurants I've tried on Oahu, and I think 4.5 would be a more accurate score. It's definitely an upscale, but still relaxed, place with excellent food, excellent service, and a great setting. I said "mostly Italian" because it is Italian with great twists on the flavors along with traditional Italian dishes that are... More

Back Bistro is my favorite place to eat on the island. There service and food is nothing short or perfect and professional. I recommend everything on their menu. It's all amazing. My favorite meal is their chicken Marsala with a slice of the best cheesecake I've ever had in my life for dessert. Baci Bistro recaptures my heart every time... More

We had dinner there with a party of six. The restaurant was very very busy.Hint: make reservations! However, our table was ready, and the service was never rushed or inattentive. The food is terrific. All the appetizers were outstanding. We had wine mussels, caprese salad, and beef carpacchio and all three were great. All the entrees were delivered hot and... More

We were recommended this place by the holiday house rental owners and it was brilliant. We went on a Monday too so got a discount of 30%. The service was great, waitress very knowledgable, wine choices excellent and food just Devine! Highly recommended to all. I would be happy to pay full price but a bargain makes the experience sweeter!
