    Service was awkward. Food came out too fast in the tasting menu and servings were very small. Food quality is good though.

    Absolutely loved dining at Bernini’s! Best bistecca fiorentina in town and hands down the best pizza. This place is an absolute gem! Love it and would go back the second we are in Hawaii again.

    Service was excellent and food is on point. I was so full leaving so portions were perfect! Everything was organized. Wish they had better parking but it’s hard in Hawaii. Maybe one day they can expand/move and have a better location for parking but overall experience was outstanding!

    We were seated 5m after our reservation time but the host sat us at the bar and offered us something to drink while they got our table ready. We started off with the scallop which was good but the pizza Margherita stole the show with the spicy sauce on the side. Loved the tiramisu and the pear compote with puff pastry and Earl Grey Gelato was a refreshing surprise. Upscale service with a warm and personal atmosphere.

    Vongole Bianca pasta had no taste perhaps overwhelmed by the excessive garlic. Seafood linguine was very good. Service was good but rushed, we ordered pre dinner cocktails and five minutes later he asked for our orders

    We had a 8:45 reservation but were able to get there 8:00. So we were seated right away which was great…but the rest of the night felt really rushed. When we sat the restaurant was pretty full but around 9:00 it was getting empty. We were the last table after around 9:20 and they couldn’t get us out of there fast enough. I can imagine how much of a rush they would have put us in if we actually came at 8:45. If they don’t want late reservations don’t let that be an option. Food was good but felt like we couldn’t really enjoy because we kept getting the next dish while enjoying the current one.

    My crazy butt actually brought two real Italians here to the beautiful and not exactly traditional Italian eatery and they were blown away!!! They loved everything and the Asian twist on what was put in front of them. This was already one of my favorite spots but the fact that these guys also agreed was awesome!! Love love this place and their Carbonara

    It was quite the lovely experience! Delicious food, awesome atmosphere and ambience, wonderful service. I hesitated at giving a five star review, given that one item did not meet my expectations…Wondered if I should just send a private note instead, but determined that it would benefit other customers to articulate their questions to the server regarding an unusual menu item; my expectations for the Roasted Mushroom Salad was… Roasted mushrooms. Instead, it was a green salad with some Roasted Mushrooms. My bust! We’ll be back for sure with our friends and visitors! Mahalo!

    This Italian restaurant was recommended to us. The night did start off well with a dirty martini cocktail which was excellent. The service was on point , our server was very friendly, professional, and attentive. Other than the lobster salad which was tasty & generous in size (and our server recommended it to us as a starter), the remaining dishes were disappointing with portion sizes very small for pasta dishes. The caprese salad (which arrived with only half the burrata cheese was very expensive for the size. We left hungry after 3 appetisers, 2 main pasta dishes and a coffee. We wanted to order dessert but of the 6 options, 3 were made with coffee/tea ingredients. (I’m sensitive to caffeine). For a high end Italian restaurant we were surprised to see pizza on the menu. We did see the pizzas arrive for other guests who struggled to hold the slices as the base was very thin and not authentic Italian. The restaurant was fully booked out on a Thursday night, and was very popular with Japanese clientele. In fact, we were the only non Japanese there.

    We had a 7:30 dinner seating, and they kept EVERYONE waiting outside of the restaurant for 15-20 min. This was a set menu Christmas dinner, so everyone was receiving the same thing, with one selection required for the pasta course. We were seated, our table did not have everything on it that it was supposed to have. We waited about 10 minutes for someone to come around and take our drink order and pasta selection. Another 10 minutes for our amuse bouche. After the amuse bouche, we waited 30 minutes for our next course, the cold appetizer, which was flavorless. I wish I were exaggerating. In this time, they also realized they had forgotten our bottle of wine and brought that around. By the time the cold app came, the table next to us was finishing 3rd course. Next, 20 min until getting hot app, which was cold. Then another 15 min until getting soup, which was the first good course, if still a bit cold. Another 15 min until receiving the pasta course. Ricci de mare was mostly just salty, with very little “de mare” to it. Truffle risotto was fine. This was the only dish that came out properly hot. Another 10-15 for the fish course, which was fine, nothing special. Another 15 for the prime beef fillet which was a little tough and lukewarm. Another 10 for the dessert, which they called seasonal fruit gratin, which was unflavorful fruit covered in split nacho cheese, with a leaf shaped feuille over top, and a spoonful of delicious passion fruit sorbet. Aside from the sorbet, it was absolutely disgusting. Almost as disappointing as having paid nearly $500 for such a dismal experience. Considering the price, this was honestly one of the worst meals of my life between wait time, poor service, bad flavors, food clearly kept under heat lamps for ages, and really small portions throughout. Thank GOD I don’t actually celebrate Christmas or I would have been well and truly livid. 10/10 do not recommend, full stop.

    The meal was really a tasting. For the price, the meals should have been larger. People were ordering extra bread because the portions were tiny. Excellent taste and platings. It was just a shame it was so small. Lychee martini was excellent! Service was good.. Kitchen was slow but they were serving all tables at once. Location doesn’t have a view so I wouldn’t pick if a view is important.

    Love this restaurant, it never fails to please. Our table was ready in the front room as requested, the decor is quiet and elegant, the table settings spacious and the chair comfortable. Not as common as one would think. The pacing of the service was good and our waiter was very knowledgeable regarding the wine menu. He also described various menu items well and made suggestions based on our requests and preferences. You can have an incredible pizza, small plates, or a chef’ tasting menu. All together a delightful experience. Warm, friendly, happy atmosphere from the whole staff.

    I was pleasantly surprised at the food at this Italian restaurant. After reading about Bernini with Japanese Chefs I was excited to try the food. I was really pleased with the beautiful presentations of the dishes as well as the taste. I will definitely return. My only negative is the parking spaces in front of the restaurant are few, small and difficult to enter and exit.
