Returned to Sarento's, which had been one of our favorites, but it seems to have lost a step. The food, while good, just didn't seem "as good". It definitely wasn't as good as the food we had at Sarento's sister restaurant - Nick's Fish Market.

The service, while attentive, seemed rushed. We had three different staff attempt to take our order while we reviewed the menu. It felt more like were a table to be turned.

Overall: Food was good, but not great. Service left something to be desired. Disappointed after many previous visits with great food and service.

Came here for dinner on the last day of our honeymoon. Came early enough to be seated right on the beach to watch the beautiful sunset. Had a bottle of wine and crab cake appetizer which was very good. I had the tuna and he had the penne and we were both very pleased with our meals. Staff was friendly but like other reviews on here they take their time, which is fine, but don’t expect to get in and out. Would recommend to others looking for a nice romantic meal.

The cocktail bar staff were great - everything else very disappointing - food poor - overpriced - overall experience terrible. Looking for a good Italian restaurant try Taormina Waikiki - .
