We dine out a lot, and this was surely the worst experience we've had anywhere in years. As we were being seated, the host told us we had to hurry the meal because they had another reservation after ours. Then no wait person arrived for 20 minutes. We had to go ask the host to send someone - who arrived... More

Went for our Holiday dinner with family. Reviews ranged from ok to excellent. Scampi and scallops got rated highly. My Osso Bucco was tender and flavorful but the pasta was bland - until I mixed in the sausages from my brother in law's dish, the asparagus and garlic from the appetizers, and some red chili flakes. Yummy! My son's red... More

My wife and I went with two friends, whom we hadn't seen for a few years. We were hoping to have some good Italian food along with good conversation. The food was okay. I had the calamari parmigiana, which was basically a huge pile of pasta with a calamari steak covered with tomato sauce and cheese. It came with nothing... More

We went to this restaurant at lunch time. The price was little bit higher than other shopping center's restaurants but the taste was great and very friendly service. It was perfect place to have lunch after shopping at Ala Moana Center. The restaurant is located in the 1st floor so very easy to access from the parking lots as well.

We went to this restaurant at about 9 PM. The service was good. The food was also good. It was a little pricey for pasta. The problem with this restaurant was that the entire staff appeared very rushed. They started a full on cleanup while we were still eating dinner. Hard brushing the carpet, vacuuming all around us. It was... More

Called in after a day's shopping at Ala Moana and got in reasonably quickly as despite the small entrance this is a pretty big restaurant. My latter point probably emphasizes what you are about you to encounter. It's a very busy rush rush type of place with radio controlled waiters keeping it moving. The food choices are long and this... More
