Bernini

Overall Review: CorkCorkCorkCorkCork

Service: The service is excellent at Bernini. Every time we have been there from the hostess to the bar back they don’t miss a beat. They are always very knowledgeable on the menu and daily specials and quick to meet your needs (fill water, new plates, red peppers, etc).

Food: Bernini’s logo slogan is “Make Your Life Tasty” and boy is that statement true. The food is lip smacking delicious!! its so nice to finally have a good Italian restaurant in Oahu. The menu has items including Antipasti, Roma Style Pizza, Pasta, and Secondo entrees like Chicken “Al Forno”, Angus Beef, Fresh fish. Each dish is full of flavor and very memorable.  One highlight was the half roasted chicken which they cook “Bernini Style” its so popular that if you don’t preorder one they will most likely be out by the time you order!! All the ingredients are fresh and they also have interesting seasonal items to keep the menu fresh making this a lovely place to go for a nice, elegant dinner.

Favorite Dishes: “Al Forno” Roasted Chicken, “Norcia” which is bianca without tomato sauce it has Mozzarella, Italian Sausage, Mushroom, Walnut and Truffle Oil, “Ricci di Mare” – Fresh Sea Urchin Spaghetti, “Amatriciana” – Spicy Tomato Sauce Pasta with Homemade Pancetta and Onion, and finally the Roasted Mushroom Salad with Parmigiano. Ummmm makes me hungry even writing these dishes down!

Atmosphere: The ambiance is absolutely lovely at Bernini. Its warm and inviting with wall to wall windows and warm wood furnishings. They have beautiful artwork and dividers made from wine stands which really brings a unique feel to Bernini. We recommend asking to sit in the front room because its more exciting than the back which doesn’t have as much charm. You can also see the pizza oven and part of the kitchen which is always exciting and fun for kids.

Consistency: Bernini is consistently delicious each time we go. One of the best restaurants in Oahu at the current moment. We try to order new things each time we go but its aways hard to move away from the old favorites!

Parking: Parking is not so easy at Bernini. If you have “parkma” you can grab one of the coveted 8 spots out front. If you are not as lucky you can find spots on the street or of course across the street at Ala Moana which is only a block away (good to walk a bit after eating all those carbs anyway!)

Assaggio Bistro

Overall Review: CorkCorkCork

Service: The service was very good at Assaggio’s Bistro in Kahala. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive and she went out of her way to make sure we had a good experience. The support staff was also very good and they were quick to clear our plates and fill up our water glasses.

Food: The food was pretty tasty but the menu is far to big and overwhelming with over 4 pages of entrees to choose from. The menu has typical italian items that you would expect including plenty of pastas (lignuine, fettchini or rigatoni), house specialites, steaks, veal, seafood, etc. If you go we would absolutly recommend ordering pasta with your entree as we did not care for the potatoes (they were suppose to be crispy but were far from it). A safe bet is to order anything with the fried garlic as both the vegetables we had as an appetizer as well as the fresh fish pasta were both to die for (mostly due to the fried garlic morsels). We recommend skipping the salads as they are not very exciting and kind of a waste of calories and unless your going to share your entree the small size portion is plenty for any0ne!!

Favorite Dishes: Fresh Fish Pasta with Garlic & Butter, Chicken Alla Parmigiana, Fresh Asparagus Sautéed with Olive Oil and Garlic (was delicious but not a lot of asparagus for the price).

Atmosphere: The ambiance at Assaggio’s Bistro in Kahala is nice. The inside has high ceilings and interesting artwork on the walls. It’s has a cozy feeling to it while still having ample seating which is always hard to achieve. The best part is that it has good insulation making it easy to enjoy table conversation without having to raise your voice. Its a good place to bring family for a night out on the town.

Consistency: We have only been once so far to this location but we will update this section after our next visit!

Parking: In terms of parking if you get lucky you can park out front which has about 10 spots that are shared with some other vendors. Or if you cant find parking in the lot or on the street you can always park accross the street at Ala Moana shopping center and walk.

Price: medium-high ($16-$29) per Entree
Corkage Fee: Wine $15 per Bottle (can’t bring wine that they have on their wine list) and for Champaign price starts at $20 per Bottle and goes up depending on the brand.

Uncle Bo’s

Overall Review: CorkCorkCork

Service: The service was really excellent at Uncle Bo’s on Kapahulu. The waitress was a real pro, full of smiles and very candid. She was on top of her game and didnt miss a beat from the moment we sat down till the moment we paid the check. In fact, we had a coupon and forgot to read the fine print indicating we had to come after 8pm she spoke to the manager on our behalf (so we could redeem our voucher) and we really appreciated all her help and attentiveness. The only not so memorable in a good way service was the hostess who tried to seat us in the back room because we didnt have a reservation. The restaurant had plenty of empty tables out front so it was a bit particular that we had to ask a few times not to site in the dark, cold back of the restaurant especially when arriving for dinner so early at 6:30pm. The manager finally interviewned and told her she could seat in front with everyone else! ha ha ha

Food: The food was not so great at Uncle Bo’s its average but nothing really stands out as delicious or memorable which you look for from a restaurant and keeps you coming back time and time again. Everything we ordered was very overly sweet including the Baby Back Ribs, Clams and Pork Kabobs. You can find a good assortment of pupu’s, pastas, pizzas, seafood & poltry entrees at Uncle Bo’s with a asian-pacific meets italian theme to it. We also ordered a “Crab  Salad with Avocado” but where disappointed when it only had 3 small little pieces of crab a few pieces of avocado and the rest was all ham and a traditional cob salad. It was very boring and miss marketed for sure. The best thing we ordered was the Spicy Tuna Wraps, they where creamy and very tastily but not even remotely spicy.  

Favorite Dishes: Spicy Tuna Wraps

Atmosphere: The atmosphere at Uncle Bo’s is nice. The restaurant has high ceilings and interesting artwork. The restaurant used to be Anti pastas so one wall has some interesting stanglass windows with garlic and other italian themed pictures covering it. The feel is trendy especially with the dark walls, floor and hanging chains. The front of the restaurant is lovely, however, the back of the restaurant has a completely different ambiance with low ceilings and rather dark / constricted. Our recommendation is to make a reservation and request the front seating area or go another time. The bar only has about 4-5 stools so its more of a place to mingle while waiting for a table than to grab a quick bite.

Consistency: We go to Uncle Bo’s every once and a while but it has been about a year since the last time we went. We are not particular impressed any time we have been with the food but it was convenient with the kapahulu location and late hours to grab pupus with friends, however, now that the new Side Street opened down the street i’m sure we will not be back to Uncle Bo’s for a good  long while (the pork chop at side street is to die for!).

Parking: Uncle Bo’s does not have free parking but there is a small private parking lot right next to the restaurant which costs $5 or you can find metered street parking which is free after 6pm and usually pretty easy to come by at night. If you have troubles across the street is another paid parking lot with ample spots as well.

SARENTO’S – At The Top Of The Ilikai

Overall Review: CorkCork

Service: The services started off really good at Sarento’s at the top of the Iliaki hotel with the wine sommelier who came right with our bred and wine list…. but after that it was down hill.  At first we thought they where trying to give us a “relaxed” experience when we waiting for 10-15 minutes before even receiving a menu but then once the meal started the same service inadequacies carried through. After we ate our entrees it took at least 20 minutes for them to clear our plates and even longer to receive a check which we eventually had to asked 3 different waiters for because we needed to get to a show on time and our waiter was MIA.

Food: The food was very disappointing at Sarento’s! The menu looked really good but only 1 of the 4 things we ordered was very good. The menu is traditional Italian with lots of protein entrees and pastas but nothing was particularity mouth watering in fact, the seafood fra diavolio linguine pasta was a bit overcooked and the seafood it came with was pretty fishy. The stuffed pork chop was extremely dry (and it was stuffed with cheese so you would hope it would have a little moisture) and the best thing about ordering that dish was they brought my wife extra veggies on the side because she didn’t want the potatoes and they where really well cooked. Overall we ate the food because it was expensive and we where hungry but I would have been more satisfied eating at California Pizza Kitchen any day of the week. Another thing we feel compelled to mention is this pupu called the Ossa Bucco Potstickers which had a really strange and bitter taste & even worst aftertaste… we only ate the filling so stay far away from that if you go!

Favorite Dishes: The best thing we had besides the bread & hummus they served on the table was the Ahi Bruchetta which was very fresh and with a little salt quite memorable, light and delicious.

Atmosphere: The ambiance is the best thing going for Sarento’s and it has an unbeatable view over the ocean, diamond head and city of Honolulu. Each table has a unique view and really there is no bad seat in the establishment. One thing to mention is when we called to make our reservation they mentioned it was “Jazz night” and did we want to site in the Jazz section for an extra $10 cover charge. We declined the offer and then when we  were seated found ourselves smack dab right behind the wall where the Jazz was playing. The band was very talented but the music was so loud we had to scream to each other across the table! they should either start the live band after 9pm or keep it a bit down so its still background music for the guests (specially if you ask not to be in what they call the “Jazz Section”).

Consistency: I would love to say we would be back to update this section but you couldn’t pay me enough money to give Sarento’s another shot in the near future. Maybe in a few years we will give it another whirl!

Parking: Sarento’s has valet parking at the Ilikai which they validate for you so you only need to pay $2 (plus tip) or you can park in the self parking lot in the Marina Parking off Hobron also for $2 with validation.

II Lupino Trattoria & Wine Bar

Overall Review: CorkCorkCork

Service: The service was average at ll Lupino in Waikiki. Both times we went to this restaurant the staff was friendly but very slow to respond to our needs. For example the first time we went the waiter never came back to fill up our wine glasses and we also asked for another menu to order additional items and he forgot twice (was missing in action for most of the meal). The other time we requested Parmesan cheese and peppers for our pizza and waited for over 10 minutes for the items to arrive (by the time we had eaten half our entrees) and the excuse was “we had to grade fresh Parmesan for you” well if its an Italian restaurant we would recommend doing that each day since its pretty probable someone will want it! Overall don’t go to this establishment if you are in a rush or not willing to wait for food, drinks and everything else you may want.

Food: The food was good at II Lupino and is the new Italian restaurant from the chef / creator of  Wolfgang Steakhouse. The food was good but not each dish knocked our socks off by any means. The pasta was the most memorable of all the food and we can’t wait to go back and try some different ones from the menu. The salad was extremely boring and the first time we went we ordered the white pizza (with spinach and mushrooms)  which wasn’t our favorite, however, the last time we went our friend ordered one for the table and asked for them to drizzle some truffle oil over the top and it was 100% better. (NOTE: if you love prosciutto for $8 they will add fresh slices to any pizza).  They also have Happy Hour specials – Pizza’s for $10, Wine by the glass for $5, Beer $4 and snazzy cocktails for $7 between 3:00 pm – 6:30 pm daily so try it out after work for some Pau Hana with your friends.

Favorite Dishes: Prosciutto Panini (for lunch), White Pizza (ask for truffle oil!) Linguine alle Vongole with(Linguine with Clams) served with White Wine, Ravioli all’Anatra (Slow-cooked Duck Ravioli with a Duck Ragu and Parmesan cheese) Yummy! Our recommendation just stick to the Pastas and you can’t go wrong.

Atmosphere: The atmosphere is very nice at II Lupino Italian Restaurant. They have both ample indoor and outdoor seating both are extremely nice and have a causal yet elegant decor. The outdoor seating is lovely because it overlooks the Royal Hawaiian Gardens which are beautiful. The color scheme of the restaurant is a stunning yellow and black with rock walls creating a truly memorable dinning experience.

Consistency: We have been twice so far and both times the pasta was delicious and the rest of the items where OK but certainly nothing to write home about. We haven’t been for breakfast or dinner thus far so will update this section after we experience it first hand.

Parking: The Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center has a parking lot (for cars under 6.2 feet tall) and II Lupino validates  so the parking is free for 3 hours after you eat which is nice if you wish to do a little shopping or take a stroll in Waikiki while in town.

Bella Mia

Overall: CorkCork

Service: The service is ok at Bella Mia. The staff is friendly and its a family owned business which is always nice. Both times we have been the service staff was welcoming and full of smiles. I wouldn’t say the service is fast but the food comes out quickly and the overall its pleasant.

Food: The dishes are huge at Bella Mia and absolutely large enough to share or for you to bring home for a second meal. They have everything you would imaging a from a NY-Italian restaurant including pasta, pizza, and a few salads. The marinara sauce and hot bread they serve you is delicious! its hot and the sauce is so good you could drink it. I would recommend going for lunch and having a salad and the bread as an appetizer it would be a perfect meal. The pasta was pretty good as well but was a bit overcooked.

Favorite Dishes: Greek Salad, Free Bread and Marinara Sauce

Atmosphere: The motif of Bella Mia is that of a casual, family style NY Italian restaurant. The table clothes are the traditional checkers of red and white. They have a pizza window and fun pictures and nick knacks around to give the ambiance that of a comfortable family-dive restaurant. Its the type of place you can bring kids and they can spill marinara sauce all over the floor without a second thought. The tables and chairs are miss matched which adds to the charm of this Italian family business.

Consistency: Both times we have been the food was consistently OK.

Parking: Parking is easy at Bella Mia because the restaurant is in the Kaimuki Shopping Center. You can find ample parking (most of the time) for only $1 for the first hour.

Formaggio’s Wine Bar

Overall: corkagecorkagecorkage

Service: The service was good at Formaggio’s and they had plenty of staff on hand. The waiters however, where not very good listeners and they brought us the wrong pizza not once, but twice during our dinner! Also on a previous time they brought us the wrong wine which was double the cost of the bottle we had asked for.

Food: The food is pretty darn tasty. They have good size portions for sharing with the table and the food is Italian-American-French. Typical items you can find on the menu are Pizzas, Salads, Panini’s, Fondue, Lobster bisque, Escargot, Foie Gras Crostini’s, Onion Soup and other good food to eat along with wine. The restaurant has over 50 wines by the glass and its fun to sample a few instead of committing to a full bottle. (TIP: double, triple check the wine you order. On more than one occasion they brought us the wrong bottle or the price was misleading on the menu!)

Favorite Dishes: Salmon Carpaccio (yum!) , Boneless Short Ribs in Red Wine (falls right off the bone!), Mixed Green Salad, Cheese Sample Plat, Pancetta & Pesto Pizza.

Atmosphere: Love the atmosphere at Fomaggio’s. It’s very cozy with intimate lighting, low ceilings, and the flicker of candle light on each persons table. The restaurant feels like a wine cellar or somewhere exclusive and is small in size. You could dress up, or dress down for Formaggio’s depending on who you are going with.

Consistency: Both times we have been to the Honolulu location have been pretty consistent. The bill was wrong on both occasions also but the wine and food where better than average and the overall experience was positive.

Parking: Formaggio’s has free parking which is extremely convenient and directly in front of the restaurant. They have plenty of spaces and the easy accessibility from all the highway, Kapiolani blvd, and Kapahulu makes this a great place to meet friends after work.

Du Vin

Overall: corkagecorkagecorkage

Service: The overall service is so so at Du Vin. The staff is very friendly but not fast by any means and historically we have had better service for dinner than lunch.

Food: The food is pretty good. It’s Italian french inspired and they use a lot of yummy ingredients such as Arugula, Prosciutto,  Assorted Meats, Cheese and Fresh Fish so its hard to go wrong. For lunch and dinner they always have great specials and a Prix Fixe menu for only $25 a person. The deal comes complete with the daily appetizer, entree and dessert. (FYI: Du Vin doesnt allow any substitutes on these items)

Favorite Dishes: Moules frites, Escargot, Roasted Beet Salad, Crostini of warm Gorgonzola Dolce and Prosciutto, Pork Chop, Fresh Fish of the day

Atmosphere: Du Vin is absolutely one of the most wonderful restaurants in all of Hawaii when it comes to its Atmosphere. The restaurant screams Italy or Spain with its series of small connecting rooms all with intimate lighting and indoor/outdoor seating options. The Salon is the place you want to sit after work with your mates and have a glass of wine, cheese selection, and unwind. The Patio is the romantic place to sit with a date or close friend under the stars. The Cask Room you may find yourself in for a wine tasting or a family reunion. This room can be rented out for large functions and has a beautiful old bar at its center.

Consistency: The restaurant is pretty consistent. Sometimes the bread is a bit old but they heat it up which helps it taste fresher. On first Friday Du Vin gets extremely busy so for better food and better service come sometime during the week.

Parking: Du Vin is located in the heart of Honolulu so there are numerous public parking garages or if you have parkma (parking karma) that day you may snag a street spot. If not its recommend parking at the China Town lot of Beretania and walking to the restaurant but remember to check because some lots close up after 12am!

California Pizza Kitchen

Overall: corkagecorkagecorkagecorkagecorkage

Service: The service at CPK is excellent. They are very attentive, make great recommendations and always make you feel at home. If you are in a rush its recommended to grab a seat at the bar, its fast and you won’t have to wait to be seated!

Food: The food at CPK is always perfect. The food is Californian-Italian-American and has a very good selection of salads, pizza and pasta with international inspiration. They are constantly adding new food to the menu and offer fresh seasonal specials. It’s the type of restaurant where everyone leaves happy and is a good place to go with family or friends!

Favorite Dishes: Chicken Lettuce Wraps, Field Green Salad, Waldorf Chicken Salad, Tricoloré Salad Pizza, Thai Chicken Pizza, Thin Crust Pizzas!

Atmosphere: The ambiance at all CPK’s are very contemporary. The ceilings are high and the color scheme is black and yellow. The restaurants are casual and you can feel comfortable wearing anything to one of there establishments. The bars are also very nice and the seats are comfortable.

Consistency: This is one of the most consistent restaurants we have been to. All the ingredients are weighted out and you always get exactly the same size and taste every time you go.

Parking: Depending on which location you visit parking is usually always available. The Kahala and Ala Moana Mall locations have ample parking and for the Waikiki location its best to park at the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center parking across the street.

Town

Overall: corkage corkagecorkagecorkage

Service: The service is so so – that being said we have had much better service for dinner than for lunch.

Food: The food is contemporary, fun and delicious! The trend is organic and island fresh with an Italian /Mediterranean twist. Town often changes the menu which keeps things entertaining. The entree dishes are not big enough for sharing but it is recommended to order few appetizers for the table to sample for fun if you are not exceptionally hungry. (TIP: If you go for lunch and are craving a salad be warned its the size of a small appetizer! you need to order the “Big” salad or stop at Tamura’s for some Poki on your way home!)

Favorite Dishes: Ahi Cake, Arugula Salad, Fresh Fish, Hand Cut Pastas & Gnocchi are quite good.

Atmosphere: The restaurant is very hip and chic. You can sit both outside (dog friendly) or inside. The acoustics are not so great so if the restaurant is full be ready to yell to your friends to be heard. The restaurant is both casual and classy so you can dress up if you like or go as you are depending on your dinning engagement and company.

Consistency: Dinner is consistently good but we have had a few painfully slow and not very good lunches.

Parking: Town has a 30-car private parking lot in the back but you need to have “parkma” to get a spot as its also shared with another restaurant. You can also find ample free street parking is once the lot is full typically without problems.
