My family, friends and I have been to Honolulu to celebrate several big occasions but only this year did we find Taormina; I'm only sorry we hadn't known about it sooner. It was--by far--the freshest and most finely-prepared food we were served during our holiday. The white-tablecloth and fine-dining atmosphere were welcoming as well as nicely done, and the service was far better than at either La Mer or at Orchids. We had the freshly-made pasta, which I would recommend in a heartbeat, and the lamb, which was superb. Even though we were full, we ordered one dessert to split and was glad we did: the warm chocolate cake was worth it. Congratulations to the chef, staff and servers. We will be back and bring friends. The next party is here.
