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 "Luca pecorini" and Veal "Siciliana." Taormina's specialty dish is Uni Pasta (Sea Urchin), a delicacy enjoyed in Sicily, Italy. Italian Lavazza espressos compliment selections of house made desserts (Dolci).

    いつも美味しい料理を頂けます。シシリア料理の為か、オーソドックスなイタリア料理とは少し違いますね。魚介類は特に美味しいです。テーブルの間はやや狭く、隣りのグループが騒がしいと少し鬱陶しいかも知れません。ワイキキで美味しい料理を頂ける貴重なお店です。

    Not sure if we ordered the wrong items on the menu or they had an off night. The veal chop and duck were both dry. The duck was cooked medium well... never had duck served that dry before. Service was just ok. Our server did not seem to like her job.....very routine.; no greeting when she first came to our table. just a "hello" then asked whether we were ready to order. She double charged my husbands drink and when we told her, she replied "oh yes, i knew that, but forgot to correct it". No real apology.. On the positive side, though, was the food runner, Moses. What a nice, pleasant and courteous gentleman!! And very helpful! We might give this restaurant another try (maybe for lunch) and will try the pasta and hopefully have another server that's better.

    Akane was a wonderful server. The quality of her service was superb!! Unfortunately the guest sitting next to us was bad mannered, sleeping after beer and ruining the atmosphere. The special dessert for our anniversary was beautifully presented and delicious. Thank you for this!

    I had written on the reservation notes that I was celebrating a friends birthday but nothing was mentioned or asked by any staff. Our server seemed like he was in a rush to get us to out and overall professionalism had a lot to be desired.

    The receptionist was not very helpful. I told her my reservation and name, and in the middle of our conversation, the previous customer interrupted us. I had to wait until they finished talking with the previous guest. During our meal, we were made to stand up and have our chairs taken away from us while we were eating. Unbelievable! We were eating a wonderful sea urchin pasta! The chairs should be moved before or after the pasta is served, not professional service. The taste of the food is part of the harmony of the atmosphere and the overall service.

    We had an exceptional experience at Taoromina on our last night in Honolulu for our honeymoon. The food was to die for, and the service was above and beyond. They offered us a complimentary dessert since it was our Honeymoon, we were very happily surprised. Can't recommend them enough!

    The Truffle Carbonara here is amazing. Service was very good and the food was all tasty although a bit on the pricey side for the portion size. Outside seating here on the patio is much better then the inside seating.
