“Missing you in Kailua”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2010

My wife and I used to go to Amina Pizzeria when they were located in Kailua. On our way to Waikiki one day I saw the old Amina name. I asked my wife if she wanted to go here on Valentine's Day which she did. Going there we saw the same nice lady and she already knew my wife's order of Spaghetti Marinara with an Avocado Salad. We love the salad, even though we are not fans of Romaine, due to the dressing and the pickled vegetables in the salad. The sauce is a savory sweet which is what my wife and I both enjoy since it is similar to her family's Italian restaurant in Minneapolis. The bread tastes like it is fresh baked. And the icing on the cake is that the lady who works the counter is the nicest person EVER!!!

For the two of us getting two salads and two entrees was $33 though the salad could have fed two. Parking is off Kalakaua in the rear of the building next to Cigarette Emporium.

“best italian food under $20 on the islands”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2009

there are a lot of italian restaurants in hawaii, but most of them are either terrible or ridiculously expensive. fortunately, amina's is the exception. i've been to their new location on kalakaua a few times, and both times the food and service was exceptional. i highly recommend it!

“The Perfect Calzone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2008

It's a real treat for the family to go here for calzones. I suspect the rest of their food is great, but we got hooked on the calzones. The spinach is fresh and not overcooked, all the veggies are great! There's enough cheese to satisfy anyone and the sauce comes on the side. It's the perfect calzone!

“Fresh Gourmet Italian in little Kailua”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2008

We love this place and eat there all the time. Fresh ingredients make for excellent pasta dishes, salads, and calzones. This is just a neighborhood shop, none of that mass produced greasy pepperoni like at chain fast food shops.

“Just awful!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2008

Ordered a pepperoni pizza. First, we suspect the "pepperoni" on the pizza is not really pepperoni. Second, there was no grease on the pepperoni that you usually see on a pepperoni pizza. The crust was flat, undercooked, and tasteless. The sauce was very sweet. It was the absolute worst pizza we have ever tasted. You cannot order bacon or italian sausage on your pizza. Very disappointing pizza in our opinion.
