Special dining in Hawaii Kai

Our family has been dining here for many years, when visiting family in Hawaii Kai. The service is excellent and the food is fairly consistent. The menu has changed so for us old-timers it is a little confusing, but we just tell them what we want and they translate it into their new menu. Parking... read more

We have eaten here several times. Once last year for my birthday. They went out of there way to make the birthday celebration special. The food is consistently good, always flavorful, and hearty portions. I highly recommend Assaggio.

I've been going to Hawaii each year since 2011, and I've now got a tradition of having dinner my last night on the island at this restaurant. The staff have always been friendly and accommodating and the food is delicious. Portions are generous and the view of the harbor, especially at sunset, is breathtaking. The Italian part of me feels... More

I have eaten here twice in the past week, both times ordering pasta. The first time was the so called Arrabbiata. It had pork in it so it wasn't truly arrabbiata and it wasn't at all spicy. I asked for hot red pepper flakes. It was watery and barely adequate. On the second visit I had the lasagna, and I... More

Assaggio is a very nice, clean restaurant serving a wide variety of very good Italian style cuisine. I've eaten there and the food was excellent each time. Most entrees are offered in a small or large size. Bring a big appetite for the large plate. Prices are quite reasonable and the staff is attentive, personable, and efficient. It looks like... More

I have always enjoyed this place. However, the restaurant has gone through management/staff challenges over the past few years. You can see a definite decline when some of the more experienced staff have moved on. The bar is very lively and a nice place to relax for appetizers and cocktails. Last Friday we visited the bar for dinner. We ordered... More

We had enjoyable holiday dinner at our local Assaggio restaurant in Hawaii Kai. Food and service was great as always. Parking can be a problem but since we had early 5:30 pm dinner there was plenty of parking spaces nearby. Always good to patronize local restaurants in our Hawaii Kai neighborhood.

I always enjoy my meal at Assaggio's in Hawaii Kai. The setting is pleasant. The staff is nice and friendly. The food is always well prepared and presented nicely. Last night I had the NY steak and pasta. It was great. Do not overlook Assaggio's if you are craving a good steak. You won't be disappointed. The large portion is... More

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
