For the folks staying in Waikiki get out of town and enjoy some of the local cuisine. Unexpected surprise of a nice Italian restaurant in a shopping center located on a marina that provides a wonderful view at sunset. 1st impressions are always important. We were provided a window seat and had Lyle as our waiter who made our dining... More

First of all, the complimentary waters actually taste good, they are probably filtered somehow! The complimentary breads and butters also taste great, hot and fresh! My mushrooms (special seasoning), onions (no pungent taste), and potatoes appetizer was close to divine, and the zuppa di clams (tomato sauce & red wine) tasted pretty good too! The calamari vegetable pasta which we... More

Quiet Italian restaurant right next to water's edge in Koko Marina Centre. Wonderful Pinot Grigio and other wine choices with a fairly extensive menu. For appetizers, the crab cakes are delicious. Also the asparagus with a wonderful crispy garlic onion topping. My personal favourite pasta is the chicken anchovies aglio olio linguine - perfectly executed! Their portions are huge so... More

We've been going to Assagio's in Hawaii kai for the past 10 years, but this time would be our last. We'd actually heard someone describe it on the plane as "take-out" dinner food. The Caesar salad prepared at the table is still excellent. However, that was the highlight. The waiter screwed up both of our entrees making them bland. My... More

Excellent food and service. Good wine and drink selection, extensive menu, fresh fish. I would categorize this a Northern Italian style restaurant. Nice view at sunset out the marina windows. I will return to this restaurant, and will recommend to family / friends. Thumbs up. $180 + tip....Two appetizers, bottle of wine all around, three main courses (large portions), three... More

We went to the Ala Moana mall to "find" lunch and tried this restaurant. The server was great Lily was there when we needed anything. We had the Veal Piccata and the Chicken Marsala and both were very good and the portions were just right for lunch. The prices were on the high side but it IS Honolulu. We would... More

Been going here for several years now and it's one of the most consistent restaurants in Hawaii Kai. Large portions and great marina waterfront views from the tables on the marina side. Large menu selection and you can order either a regular or large portion. The Large is worth the extra price and just split it due to it's normally... More

Food is good, no doubt, BUT, DANG! Always seem to sit in the section with no aircon. A few months ago we sat there(parking lot side), I asked to be moved to the other side they said it was hot throughout the restaurant, it wasn't. My husband & I had to step outside because of the heat. Last month...same thing.... More

We went here on our way back from Haunauma Bay. We were underdressed, but it didn't matter. Our service was great and the food was very yummy. We had enough for leftovers for the next day. Got to watch the sunset. It was beautiful and romantic. Would highly recommend eating here
