After reading recent reviews, I was somewhat afraid to return to Azul, since its change from Mediterranean to Italian. However, we were quite pleased with our meal. The Caprese Salad was adequate for splitting. The mozzarella cheese was outstanding, however the tomatoes were not as good, but acceptable for the season. My wife selected the Mahi-Mahi, fresh catch of the day. It was paired with oven baked potatoes and a vegetable. She thought a grain rather than the potato would be more appropriate. I had the seafood risotto with mussels, clams and shrimp. It was very flavorful. We opted for a Stag’s Leap Chardonnay to complement our selections, We topped off the meals with a Grand Marnier and Coffee, but only after we received a complementary lemon cello. Our server was helpful and attentive and had a great personality.

Gratcie Marco and Stefano.

Your food, atmosphere, and friendliness were amazing. My entire family enjoyed the food and your company.

We will definitely dine at your restaurant when in Oahu.

The food is excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. We attended on Valentin's Day, unaware that there was a set menu - the owner was on hand and ensured that my wife was catered for without delay. Well worth a visit.

We dined here our first night at the Ihilani. They put us down by the pond for a romantic setting, which it was, BUT the smell from the pond was overwhelming!! It was awful. Like fish poop or rotting something. They were kind enough to move us right away, but only up on the terrace, where the odor could still be smelled. The waitstaff said they "don't notice it anymore." Okay..... but you are aware it's still there so do something about it!! Really wrecks the atmosphere and dining experience.

We have traveled extensively and found the prices for what you received were very high. The ravioli appeared to be homemade, but also looked like wonton wrappers. The cheese and spinach inside was not homemade. My husband's steak was just okay.

I was disappointed and cannot recommend this restaurant. Why they don't do something about that pond smell is beyond me.

We dined there our last night in Ko Olina, it was a beautiful place, very elegant, our waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful and we all totally enjoyed our dinner. It was pricey, but so is almost everything else around there, and at least this was professionally prepared, served and elegant. Delicious fresh fish seldom seen on menus, one of us had the veal and it was tender and perfectly prepared. Highly recommend for a special night out!
