Description: Inspired by authentic Sicilian recipes from the kitchens of Southern Italy's seaside town of Taormina, Chef Hiroyuki Mimura pairs fresh pastas with the highest quality seafoods and meats. Unspoiled by heavy sauces, Sicilian-style pastas are dressed in pure, extra virgin olive oil. Fresh vegetables, lightly grilled fresh local fish, and lamb seasoned with herbs offer diners a healthy range of options.Featured dishes include fresh Fettucine Carbonara finished with tableside Truffle service, grilled Lamb Chops "Palermo" and Veal "Siciliana." Taormina's specialty dish is Uni Pasta (Sea Urchin), a delicacy enjoyed in Japan and Italy. Italian espressos compliment Dolci (dessert) selections of house made desserts.

The setting is nice, the food was tasty, not sophisticated, the service attentive. Limited wine list. The place is frequently full; reservations are useful.

First and foremost....this is excellent food. But our dining experience is not just about the food. I know it's a first world problem, but when you pay this much for food, the service needs to be on par as well. Our waiter couldn't even bring out the basics like water, bread or the vinegar for the oil. Anything we needed, we had to ask for. Maybe it's hard to find good wait staff here in Waikiki.

My wife and I visited Taormina while visiting Waikiki and were quite impressed with the service and food. We arrived and were seated immediately. Our requested wine was out of stock and our server suggested an adequate substitute. She also recommended a couple of the daily specials, one was a grilled Onaga and the other a pasta carbonara with truffles. Both were delightful. The kitchen missed our ticket and there was a delay in getting our food but to be honest we really didn't notice. The server and manager "comp'd" us two glasses of wine and a desert. And while that didn't hurt it wasn't necessary. My review also takes in to account that everyone around us seemed to be enjoying themselves and were being treated with the same attentiveness as we were. It's fine to make mistakes if you make up for then quickly and deliver quality food.

During our 9 days in Waikiki, we ate here 3 times. We couldn't get enough. We are a family with two 7 year olds. They were very accommodating and not concerned about our children dining here. There wasn't a kids menu, but there was enough variety for them to choose from. The pastas with lobster and clams were amazing. On our second visit, the manager gave us a dessert which was on the house - as an appreciation for our return. Then on the third visit they didn't charge us for the desserts we ordered. I would definitely recommend dining here.
