Wasn't my first choice to have dinner, but original choice nearby was full. Saw Cafe Sistina and I remember the restaurant for having great Italian Food. I've been living overseas for some time now, so I was surprised it was still the same location. Service was excellent was waiter was able to recommend dishes as well as the wine selection.... More

Interior is nothing short of spectacular! Mostly the food was decent except the eggplant in my wife's Eggplant Parmesan was tough & inedible. Over $200 with tip for 4 diners. Would not go back. Only validate 1 hour of parking.

It's been 10 years since I last visited Cafe Sistina. I had fond memories of this restaurant, and decide to try it again. It was a pleasant experience. The food was very good, the prices were reasonable, the parking convenient, and the service was attentive. But for me, the Italian Renaissance atmosphere created by the floor to ceiling paintings of... More

We were looking for a place to have a family dinner for 6. We were hesitant to try Sistina because of the mixed reviews but we decided to try it because the menu was appealing. We were not disappointed. We had the shrimp al Diablo, ragu bolognese, meat lasagna, chicken parm and osso buco with a veal shank. My son... More

Café Sistina WAS our favorite restaurant in Honolulu for well over a decade. My Sweetheart and I found out the hard way on Sat. 13 Feb. 2016. I had an inkling when I made our reservation, Maybe a little too business like ? ? When we arrived, I asked if Sergio Mitrone, the owner would be in this evening as... More

I was a little worried at first because I tried to call to ask about parking. For some reason the phone number listed on numerous sites is a disconnected number. So we were concerned if Sistina was closed. We were relieved to see they were alive, well and busy when we arrived. I spoke with one of their staff who... More

Cafe Sistina is my favorite Italian restaurant in Honolulu. When I want Italian, it's where I generally go. Like any "favorite" restaurant, there are special dishes that draw me back. In particular, at Cafe Sistina it's the Venison Ragu Pappardelle. Typically, it's a luscious, creamy, finely ground venison ragu with fresh pappardelle. Last night, it was prepared hamburger-helper style. The... More
