I really enjoyed the food but found it very noisy. I think I would have enjoyed it more noise wise if we had have been a smaller group so we could hear each other. We all enjoyed our food

We were looking for a place to eat and all was full that evening in Kailua. We ran across Formaggio by chance. The waitress was helpful, informative, and very sweet. The food was good-especially the Kobe burger. Our one complaint is their wine storage. We...More

We stumbled across this place on our way back to Honolulu from a drive around the windward coast of Oahu. Between the three of us, we had the Delmonico steak, the fish special, and a margherita pizza. Everything was delicious, and the service was friendly....More

A business colleague and I ordered "light" tonight at Formaggio in Kailua -- a fabulous deconstructed Salmon Nicoise Salad. Our generously-portioned salmon fillets were perfectly seasoned and perfectly wood-grilled, with crispy charred skin under succulent, medium-rare, pink-orange flesh.

Set aside the very noisy atmosphere filled with diners who have no public voice. Set aside the kids running around. The service was exceptional, and staff very friendly. The food is outstanding. They have a well appointed wine list.

We had a horrible experience this evening, Saturday, September 23rd, 2017! The restaurant was so loud my husband and I couldn't talk without practically shouting. The food was very good, but when we got the bill we had an extra $9.50 charge for a drink...More

Get away from the hussle and bussle of Kailua with this wonderful restaurant! Prices are in line with the rest of Hawaii dining. Service is always great! The wine is a little on the expensive side. But the food is reasonably priced. Everything tastes great!...More
