Located in Waikiki at the Beach Walk, Taormina Sicilian Cuisine is a contemporary, gourmet, Italian spot! Open terrace seating means a great view and soft Island breezes. Inside, enjoy stylish dining and Mediterranean charm.
Inspired by authentic Sicilian recipes from the kitchens of Southern Italy's seaside town of Taormina, Chef Akira Yamamoto pairs fresh pastas with the highest quality sea foods and meats. Unspoiled by heavy sauces, Sicilian-style pastas are dressed in pure, extra virgin olive oil. Fresh vegetables, lightly grilled fish, and lamb seasoned with herbs offer diners a healthy range of options.
Over one hundred types of wine are on display throughout the restaurant. Stop by for a casual lunch in the afternoon or a more sophisticated dinner at night! Very good over all and at reasonable prices and with great service.Taormina Sicilian Cuisine
