Had a lovely early dinner here. The menu was very authentic, even down to sea urchin pasta. Delicate flavor was will done. The other pasta dishes we got, Norma and Bolognese were superb. Highly recommend.

We had to book 2 days ahead to be able to be seated at 8pm. Glad we persevered as the food and the service was first class. The wine list is extensive and I chose a super Tuscan and was certainly not disappointed. My wife was more than a little surprised at the price but we were on holidays and... More

My wife and I grabbed an early last minute reservation on a Monday night after a rain out at golf earlier that day. The service at this restaurant was top notch. The risotto was very good bu my wife's pasta was very salty. Without asking it was taken off of the check without us knowing until payment - again great... More

We come to Honolulu for a month every year, and we would always have our first meal at Taormina right after we arrive. Did that again yesterday, and we were not disappointed. Our server , Joseph from NY, is very friendly, polite and attentive. The food was, as always, outstanding. I had the prix fixe four course meal - it... More

Excellent food, was happy with everything from the dinner salad to the black squid ink pasta, the spinach and ricotta ravioli, and the great tasting olive oil. Jen the server and rest of the team were attentive and friendly.

Waikiki just off Kalakaua. Staff was very friendly, wines were all delicious. Menu was extensive and priced for Waikiki. Food was very good. Would recommend and visit again.

Four of us dined here and loved it. Two of us had pasta (freshly made) and two had salmon. All dinners and salads were excellent. The service was very friendly and prompt. The place is located just off Kalakaua Avenue in Waikiki. We were seated very near the front door and ever though it was busy it did not distract... More

We stumbled upon Taormina Restaurant as we made our way for Afternoon Tea at Halekulani Hotel. I took their mini-menu and made reservations for the next night. Located conveniently off Kalakaua Avenue this bistro was a true find. After we dined there twice my compliments go to their chef who duplicated a Sicilian cuisine in Honolulu. We had: Focaccia (bread... More

Taormina is enjoyable enough and have dined there several times, however it's not that special in comparison to other restaurants in the area. They always run behind in reservation time and do nothing more than say thank you for waiting. Service is somewhat hectic and rushed. Food quality is good, but portions are more like Tapas than entrees.

Thank HotelguyMD
