We felt like Italian - we've seen this restaurant a number of times but have never ventured in. It's close to where we were staying. We sat at the bar top just before 6pm - it happened to be happy hour until 630pm. The bar tender didn't acknowledge us for over 10 minutes (there are only 10-12 seats at the... More

4 couples dined at Il lupino for Valentine's Day and had a great time. The server was very good and the meal was excellent. The courses were well timed and cooked as expected. Highly recommend this place when you visit Waikiki.

Came here after very high recommendation but left feeling very disappointed. There was a lot of grit /sand in my Clams and the waitress suggested that I was lying. The service was lacklustre. However, the octopus starter was super delicious

We've been dinning here for 5 years and always had that warm feeling of Italy however, last night was different you could not here the Italian waiters accents, the kitchen was more of a comedy fest with the chef's. OK enough.....The food was good, not great just good. We started with... More

We were staying at the Royal Hawaiian and hadn't made a reservation on a Friday night and couldn't find anything too close on Open Table so we stumbled upon Il Lupino. We ordered a charcuterie plate (lovely, fresh, tasty) and then a filet mignon and osso buco, both excellent. The wine list was decent with lots is sparkling choices by... More

Recommended by a chef friend, & the food didn't disappoint.

Description
Welcome to Il Lupino Trattoria and Wine Bar, created by famed New York restaurateur Wolfgang Zwiener, serving delicious, authentic Italian cuisine in a relaxing, yet sophisticated atmosphere, featuring indoor and outdoor bar and dining and a Salumeria featuring imported Italian cheeses, hand-cut meats that pair superbly with our wines by the glass list. While growing up in Europe, Wolfgang Zwiener discovered his passion for true Italian cuisine. In Italy, the locals would affectionately call him "Il Lupino", meaning "Little Wolf". It became his dream to open an Italian restaurant that would offer all his favorite dishes from Italy. That dream came to fruition in December 24th, 2010, when Wolfgang and his son, Peter, proudly opened their flagship Il Lupino Trattoria and Wine Bar at the Royal Hawaiian Center, in the heart of Waikiki. They hope you will enjoy the delicious Italian food created with love, dedication and passion. You might even meet Wolfgang himself in the restaurant while you are visiting. Pasta is prepared daily fresh and all our product comes directly from the Island. Lustful creations incorporating the fresh local seasonal produce, imported Italian cheeses, hand-cut meats and a variety of seafood accented with hand-made pastas. Our team is committed to exceeding expectations as they delight and satisfy while creating a memorable dining experience. Featuring wines from around the world our award winning selections enhance our cuisine and your experience. Focused primarily on Italian and Domestic selections we have something for every wine enthusiast!
