We’re visiting on vacation and had dinner here. It was amazing. We ordered the Ribeye Special and Caesar salad all was awesome! The staff was very detailed and service oriented. It was a great experience.

Be aware The term Grill in the name may not indicate the wonderful quality range of this restaurant. Right downtown in Kailua town we tripped over Formaggio, really hungry for a good tasting meal--and did we get it. The beef and fish were great and...More

I really enjoyed the food but found it very noisy. I think I would have enjoyed it more noise wise if we had have been a smaller group so we could hear each other. We all enjoyed our food

A business colleague and I ordered "light" tonight at Formaggio in Kailua -- a fabulous deconstructed Salmon Nicoise Salad. Our generously-portioned salmon fillets were perfectly seasoned and perfectly wood-grilled, with crispy charred skin under succulent, medium-rare, pink-orange flesh. The "salad" component featured super-fresh baby frisee...More

Set aside the very noisy atmosphere filled with diners who have no public voice. Set aside the kids running around. The service was exceptional, and staff very friendly. The food is outstanding. They have a well appointed wine list.

Unsure what has transpired since I last visited, but it seemed like a different restaurant. The food was a huge disappointment. The sizzling mushroom appetizer was simply that -- mushrooms on a hot plate, with no discernible taste. Like something a freshman culinary student might...More
