“Very nice dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Nice dinner. Good wine list. Good service. Best steak in a while. Has a nice feeling to it without being pretentious. Reasonably priced for Waikiki.

“Great location food so so....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

We were disappointed with the food here and soon as it arrived we were bothered by flies (sitting outside) pasta was ordinary. Happy hour drinks is good value though.

“Excellent Italian in Waikiki”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

This is a proper Italian restaurant, surprisingly un-touristy given its location in the Royal Hawaiian complex, and worth the money. We came back a second time. The food is excellent - high quality pasta, fresh ingredients, excellent thin pizza base - our only comment was too much truffle oil on the mushroom pizza (an easy thing to happen - less is almost always more with truffle oil). Excellent vegetarian options, something we found lacking in most of Waikiki. The menu is accompanied by an excellent wine list and mark ups not too outrageous. The service is worth particular comment - truly impeccable - one does not mind tipping when it is this good. They looked after our three year old well, given it's a grown up restaurant. Request an outdoor table and you may see Hawaiian guitar and hula on the nearby stage.

“Not much better in Waikiki”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

Found this by accident and went back twice. Great food, friendly staff and good wine. The atmosphere outside is especially nice and well worth an additional wait if it is busy (and it usually is).
