My wife and I ate here the other evening. We both enjoyed our meals but were a little disappointed. When most people think of Italian they simply think of pizza and pasta. But Italian food is so much more, and many of my favorite Italian restaurants around the world offer so many other unique and passionate Italian dishes. I feel... More

This is a first class Italian restaurant. My wife and I had luncheon here Sept.27 and had excellent food and service. Our choices were chicken and shrimp in a basil sauce on linguini and I had chicken and shrimp in a creamy pesto sauce also on linguini. Other pasta can be substituted. Portions were more than adequate. Waiters were attentive... More

When we lived in Kaimuki we would go here twice a month. It has great views of the marina and has just the right amount of ambiance. Whenever we go back to visit we eat here, I haven't found chicken marsala as good on the mainland. I crave it and love when I can come to visit.

A lovely marina front restaurant with white tablecloth delightful service and a full bar. A little tight for wheelchairs but it works. beautiful place to watch the sunset. Quiet interior even when it's totally full you can hear each other at your table. A great place to get together and share your day.

We had a wonderful dinner at this location, Assagio Hawaii Kai. The service was excellent. Our hostess was very accommodating - there is a dress code for this restaurant - one of our dinner companions wore flip flops and a tank top, somewhat under dressed, but they didn't make a big deal about it. Our waiter was very attentive. The... More

We always enjoy our local Assaggio Hawaii Kai especially when celebrating special occasions. For this past Father's Day, we ordered take-out for Father's Day dinner. Food as always was good however to our surprise one of the orders was incorrect. We didn't want to drive back to restaurant to pickup correct order so we just kept the wrong order despite... More

Assagio just has really good dishes, pleasant atmosphere, a nice marina location, and good service. It's my 'neighborhood restaurant'; my husband and I go here occasionally - but not as often as I'd like. I often order the Sicilian Chicken or Shrimp Arrabiata. The latter is not on the menu, but the chef will substitute shrimp in the Fish Arrabiata,... More

Good bread and food, as well as friendly service in a quiet atmosphere. While it isn't the ultimate in fine dining, it is quite nice for a good lunch and casual dinners. We ended up eating there three times over the course of a five-day stay in Honolulu. --Jeri

Visiting from Colorado. We were delighted with this restaurant . It was simply, yet elegantly decorated. The service was top notch! Friendly- professional- efficient! I ordered Veal Marsala- flavor was perfect. My husband ordered Linguine with Marinara. Could have been a bit more spiced up. The warm bread was tasty- crisp on the outside, warm on the inside. We had... More

I come here every other month or so and in the summer the service suffers a bit but overall this really is a good place to have a nice relaxing dinner away from the crowds of Waikiki. Go for the smaller portion or split a larger plate. Be prepared to wait during the high season (winter break, spring and summer)... More
